This course shows you how to build your own online store with the objective of making at least $60K in profit annually. For many people, this store can replace your current income. It can provide flexibility in your schedule and freedom from the gridlock and other problems that most people face when they are working regular 9-5 types of jobs.
This course takes a hands-on approach. It is expected that you will follow along and complete the assignments that are given to you so that you can see your store come to life. It is expected that by the time you finish the assignments in this course, you will have a store that is on its way to netting you an income of $60K.
I will use a few examples of stores I'm currently building (Custom Vinyl Decor and Online Safety Depot) from the ground up so that you can see the progress I'm making and motivate yourself to follow the formula.
Here are some of the topics you will learn about as you build your $60K store:
This course is made up of instructions and assignments that make use of those instructions.

Some of these things can also be outsourced, and I'll show you how to do that as well.
Good luck on the course.

This lecture explains how to determine which products you want to sell in your store. It's recommended that you sell something that you're interested in. Also, selling higher dollar products ($500-$2000) usually makes it so that you can make more money per hour that you spend on your business.

I have been building and selling internet businesses since 1999, including stores that sell outdoor gear, sporting goods, children's clothing, medical products, and general clothing. I've created a repeatable model for building ecommerce stores that sell niche products.
Over the years, I've also taught several live classes on how to create an income by selling products, especially ones that are drop-shipped from a supplier, on a website.
