    Introduction:

    Whats up fuckers, its Ya Boi GanjaPanda420. To start, I will not be referring to "Cash", "Money", or "USD" anytime during this thread for fear of offending whatever deity deals in that shit. Instead I will be calling them "Buzz Units"/"Honey Units" or simply using the "" or "" emoji. For example, my goal as you can see in the title is to make 2,500 per month.

    About Me:

    High Schooler stuck in medium sized university town in PNW. I want to move to the big city because I've got big city dreams and ambitions, yet I lack the current money needed. This journey will simply be a jumping off point for making money to trade on the the stock market with, which is another hobby of mine. I'm much better at daytrading then building businesses, but shits a bitch to do if you don't already have wealth. Trust me, I've traded with $60,000 accounts and $15,000 accounts - One is a lot easier to grow then the other.

    On that note people might ask "Why don't you just use that money" - Well A. The $60,000 is what turned into $15,000 and B. It was College money I couldn't touch anyways until I'm 18. People will also question if I'm actually good at trading - I've been doing it for the past 3-4 years and most of the money was lost when I was far dumber. As of a few months ago I've developed a strategy that works pretty well and its easy to make a couple hundred every week.

    Plan:

    I will be targeting what I see as a highly lucrative and untapped niche with a stealth-dropshiping Shopify store and social media Ads. I've done this before and made no money whatsoever because I tried the free w/ shipping method, where margins are nonexistent. During that journey I gained a lot of experience - and in the months after I've gained even more. My whole plan might seem vague (its literally a sentence), but trust me, its easy as fuck. I've seen the type of stores and the people doing this - its probably one of the easiest ways to make money if you're not a complete idiot.

    I will be starting a second Shopify store once I reach a decent amount on the first one. The second store is really more of a passion project, but it could become way bigger in the long run due to how lucrative it is. I will not be going into too much depth about it because its a bit too "Black Hat" to post about here.

    LETS MAKE SOME BUZZ UNITS, BITCHES!

    TIL you can't post emojis. Probably should have previewed this shit.

    Anyways, mostly just working on the website today.

    DAY 1

    Mostly just building up my website today. Got a domain, made a logo (Really easy to do - Literally the name of my store in a cool font), and I've started messing around with various parts of the website. Its important that my website looks as professional as possible so that users trust my brand. So far I've created pages for:
    • Terms of service
    • Contact us
    • Privacy policy
    • About us
    • Refund policy
    • FAQ
    I plan to start adding products and to continue branding the website for most of today. I also plan on adding a whole thing about our "Transparent" and "Sustainable" business model with an infograph about how our direct to consumer approach benefits the customer in a section on the website and on every product page. I think I might also add a blog with just some general niche related articles paraphrased off of somewhere.

    As far as plugins go I've downloaded the following:
    • Conversio - Some sort of receipt/conversion thing. Need to check it out, but it was free and looked interesting
    • Easy Contact Form - Just needed a form that people can contact me at incase they don't want to just send an email
    • Intercom - I've heard having a live chat can help a lot with sales. I'm always online and I can time my Ads so that I can answer any questions that my customers may have. Also adds to the illusion of my shop being a company run by multiple people.
    • Mailchimp - Emails. They're important.
    • Oberlo - Just using Oberlo to start because its the Bees Knees, but once I become big enough I'll start sending my people spreadsheets with the orders.
    • Privy - Some sort of email list popup thing
    • Product Reviews Addon - Product reviews. Considering making a few fake ones to start off to make people feel confident in my store.
    I've also got the following services:
    • Domain - already explained this
    • GSuite - To manage my email connected to the domain
    • Burnerphone - Its $5/month to have a customer phone number. Another one of those things I use to put on the illusion of a large company
    • AmForward - Package forwarding service. I use this as the address of my business incase some idiot customer tries to send back a return or something else dumb
    I think I might make a further update, but like I said above, right now now I'm focusing on building the website and I will be adding products either tonight or tomorrow, with Ads starting in a few days. And as always...

    So what is your business? Stealth dropshipping?

    I would consider it just dropshipping. The whole stealth part is just for sales, and I don't even think it's a type of business.

    Day 2

    Really wanted to get more done today, but I've been extremely tired and only got around to polishing up the website and just barely adding a few products. I think either by tomorrow or Wednesday I'll start rolling out Ads and probably start to see my first sales in the following days. I know nobody really enjoys these updates, but I want to write something everyday to motivate myself and stay centered on whats important. And as always...

    I know it's stupid to ask, but I'm being stupid for a long time now, so i'll ask..
    Is your store weed related?
