WordPress Expert, eCommerce professional & Entrepreneur

I'm Patrick Gerrits, 31 years old and father of a daughter and son. I'm a e-commerce entrepreneur, and IT Architect, but most of all I'm a idea machine. I always looking for new opportunities and I see possibilities instead off problems. I believe that you can sell everything online if you just know how to do it.

I have been an entrepreneur for life. Started when is was sixteen trying to sell t-shirts of computer games to my friends. When I was 22 i started my first 'real' web shop. Before that i was just trying out concepts and products to sell. When the shop did not sell anything for 1 week, I got bored and started a new business (Now i know better).
The real one was a shop selling computer games and game hardware. It was a huge success creating over 1 million of sales in the first year and being awarded best web shop in the Netherlands two years in a row. The growth was enormous but so was the learning curve, we made mistakes during that rapid growth that eventually got us. The shop went bankrupt after 3 years with a cash flow problem.

I'm proud of that experience during the last 6 months, when the company was going bankrupt, I learned the most. I'm putting all of the things I learned in my new businesses. Trying out new concepts, different sales models or even different shop systems.

Now I help starting entrepreneurs with their e-commerce business. Sometimes i help started business as well. I try to be the companion for the entrepreneur, helping them from A to Z. But also making sure they don't make the same mistakes I made in the past.

Here on Udemy I'm here to teach you everything I know about e-commerce and help you make the next step and maybe the best step you make in your whole life!
