Good Note : Started a side hustle as an amazon ecommerce seller while working as a teacher. Ended up growing that business to full time.
Bad Note : Holding on to the security blanket of a job and ended up not putting in the full effort into his first venture and it never did take off.
Assembling the Band : Found a group of Virtual Assistants though LinkedIn. Started by getting on a screenshare and just worked while the team watched. This allowed them to learn what he was doing and also creating content at the same time.
Gathering Fans : When starting off, you can have a lower price point to build up a clientele and build testimonials.
Keeping the Hat Full : Put time in and do things manually at first rather than spend the money on tools.
