Do you want to start a home-based business?

Maybe you are tired of your job, even though you make a lot of money. 

Or you might want to create an additional source of income. It does not matter what your reason may be. 

The truth is starting a home-based business is not as hard as you might think.


Why start a home-based business now?

Right now has never been a better time to open up your own online business. 

You may be skeptical but it really is true. More advanced technology has led to significantly lower costs throughout the entire supply chain.

Now you can order high quality and inexpensive products directly from Alibaba (in China) and sell them on Ebay. 

This was an entrepreneur's dream only 5 years ago.


Clear and straightforward

If you have been searching for how to start a home-based business you have probably been overwhelmed with information. 

If you have begun to take some courses you probably became lost and realized people were giving you conflicting instructions.

This course was created to be clear and straightforward. 

I purposefully left out a lot of information because it is pointless to teach you stuff that won't help you reach your goals. 

Giving you too much information is actually harmful because it makes it less likely for you to have the confidence to take action.


What you will learn in this course

  • What wholesaling is
  • How to find profitable products to sell
  • What dropshipping is and why you should avoid it
  • And other relevant topics...


What you will not learn in this course

  • How to find suppliers that have gone out-of-business
  • Outdated selling techniques that won't apply to you in 2015
  • Pointless anecdotes that don't help you create an Ebay business


It is easy for you to get started

You will be surprised at how easy it is to import products and sell them on Ebay. 

If you are new to this subject don't worry; this course is designed for beginners.

Simply click on the blue 'Start Learning Now' button in the top right hand corner to instantly start learning how you can make money on Ebay.

Is Society's New Way of Learning Giving You "Information Overload Hangovers?"

Trying to learn anything in today's world looks easy.

With one Google search you can find unlimited information about anything you want.

It sounds great, and in many ways it is. But man does it get tiring! 

Too many options makes you think that there is always something better out there. 

You want to learn how teach an online course? Great! Let the fun begin..

Do you read the 10+ articles on Google? Do you watch the most viewed videos on Youtube? Or do you take an online course about how to create an online course?

You say, "I want to learn from this online course!"

The promotional video and the reviews get you excited. 

"Everyone is talking about how amazing this course is!" They say, "After this, you'll find creating online courses incredibly easy."

You got your notepad and pen ready. You wait until your fresh in the morning to start. On your desk is a warm cup of coffee. You're ready to dive in.

You play that first video and WOAH! You start learning all of these valuable nuggets of information. 

The notebook is quickly filling up with notes. You have a secret urge to share what your learning with someone you know. 

It's so fascinating!

Learning Information can be Addicting 

In the moment, it makes you feel like you're growing. Like anything is possible.

But, just like a heavy night of drinking, information overload gives you a crippling hangover. 

After you have a notebook filled with pages and pages of notes, you feel lost. 

When the course, the video, the blog post is over, it makes you ask yourself: what's next? 

At this point we tell ourselves, "I just have to learn more!"

Sound familiar?

I call it: The Information Hamster Wheel

It's time to step off the hamster wheel. Real growth happens when we take action on when we learn.

We don't truly grow or learn anything until we do it ourselves! That is why you always hear people say, Action is the Best Teacher

But we know this already...

And yet we don't take Action. All of this incredible information is not turning into anything real. 

And we know we should be taking action. But for some strange reason, we can't.

-We have no idea where to start

-We look at all of the people that are successful doing what we want to do ("I can never do that")

-We get distracted 

-We decide we need to learn more first

Why Does Taking Action Feel Like Your Alone in a Dark Cave?

Learning any new skill is like walking through a dark cave. On your own it is new, hard to see and scary.

When your taking an online course, you are guided by someone with a flashlight. They are saying, "I know the way. Come follow me!" 

They walk you through the cave and show you all of the amazing scenery and sights. 

Once the course, the video, the blog post is over your guide has left. It is just you in the dark cave now, alone. 

You pull out the flashlight app on your phone. The tiny light helps you see the edges of the cave, but you can hardly see anything. 

The fearful thoughts begin to enter your mind, "I'm in way over my head," "I can't do this," "I should stick to something I already know how to do well."

Okay, enough with the cave. 

You need a guide that leads you through taking Action! 

Someone that will tell you, step-by-step, exactly what to do. 

Someone that will call you out if you're not taking Action. 

Someone that doesn't leave you after they 'give you' information.

Take Action-Backed Courses

My role is to be your Action guide. 

In my courses you are not going to be left in the cave alone. 

Instead you will learn the important information and then I will walk you through the actions. 

In each of my action-backed videos I give you 1 task to complete and then show you EXACTLY how to complete that task.

By the end of my course you will not have another notebook full of notes. Instead you will have taken Action and accomplished the course goal.
