How to Create Professional Looking Ebay Listings Optimized for Mobile
My Entrepreneurial Adventure Started at Age 13
My name is Eric Campbell and right now I’m 22 years old. I started my entrepreneurship adventure when I was 13. At that time I was playing an online game called Runescape and I decided to write a guide on how to make money in the game. I put this guide up on Ebay and I was shocked to find that people were actually willing to pay for it and they left really positive reviews.
This One Experience as a Kid Changed My Perspective for Life
So it blew my mind that something that I created out of nothing, in a word document, in a couple of hours, was something that other people would pay for and it actually made their lives better. And since then I have been hooked on entrepreneurship. I have tried the most random business ideas that you could imagine. I remember one of them was creating a website that drop-shipped wrought iron products and another was remaking people’s LinkedIn profiles for a cost.
My College Experience Was Filled with Entrepreneurship
When it came time to go to University I went to Penn State and got a degree in Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship. While I was there they sent me to the top entrepreneurial boot camp in Silicon Valley called Draper University. So I’ve seen Entrepreneurship from all these different perspectives and it’s been an absolute huge part of my life and for me it’s a ton of fun.
The First Product I Ever Imported from China was a Bracelet
My experience importing products from China started when I was a sophomore at Penn State. At the time I was importing men’s magnetic therapy bracelets from China and I started by selling them on Ebay and then I moved to selling them on Amazon FBA. I did about $7,000 in sales before I realized that I wanted to shift my focus back to University and just live that experience that I was in right then. But I knew that as soon as I graduated I wanted to get right back into the Amazon FBA opportunity because it’s just too big.
After Graduating I Immediately Moved to Lisbon, Portugal
So I graduated 2 months ago and immediately moved to Lisbon, Portugal and I’ve started importing products from China again. I want to be a living example that not only can starting your Amazon FBA business give you financial independence but it can also give you complete freedom, so if you want you can have the freedom to live anywhere you want in the world.
How My Experience Benefits You as a Student
I think this is great for you as a student because not only do I have the experience of importing products and putting them on Amazon FBA but I’m also in the middle of building my business right now, right with you. And this means I can relate to the challenges and frustrations you’re facing and also stay current with any of the new changes to Amazon FBA.
Have a great day!
