    Very good share barto, I love to see such stories.

    Even I am a Chinese and aware that tons of money laid in China here, I just cant do such things, first I lived in northeast of China and far from the places like Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai, second is I got 0 experience about such outsource things, let lone sell it back to US, anyway, they did a good job indeed!

    Yeah if copying two ideas and making 300k makes him an "entrepreneur", yeah he must be on here.

    Opportunists and visionaries are the ones who succeed. Well include grit and lots of grind.
    Nice read.

    That was a interesting read.

    Because of that read....I went down the rabbit hole looking for tons of similar opportunities. I wish my day had 60 hours so I could put all that I wish into action :p

    I read the whole article and I think that this guy is brilliant. The only possible problem I see is that he could probably get lawsuits against him and I say problably because I think he will be fine. I once saw a quote that says : Poor people create the idea, rich people copy an idea, and ultra-rich peole straight steal them. I think that this guys understood this.:p

    Really good share OP! Amazed by the dude's quick execution and appetite for risk.

    Remitting $70k on a first run production order, without thorough due diligence. He must have spent years cutting his teeth managing Chinese manufacturer's, prior this.

    I can't believe you doubt me micky, how many times a year do we see "new" re-hashed dropshipping/porn/amazon affiliate threads on BHW?......

    The classic buying products on Alibaba and then re-selling them elsewhere scenario...With a twist that you do it for trending products. Props to the guy, why not?

    If you ask me this is the classic paid advertisement made to look like news. Making 300k on Alibaba is hardly anything a news site would get a hard on over. Fuck, this story makes just about everyone on eBay making a wedge an Internet marketing genius entrepreneur.

    I'm also guessing the figure is not profit either.

    The term entrepreneur is thrown around a lot these days.

    Small Business Owner does not equal Entrepreneur (most of the time).

    Interesting read.

    I'm curious about marketing such a product. How would you do it? Facebook ads, Pinterest and IG promotions, Amazon promotions or anything else?

    Search the forum with the above quoted quote and you will find the quote...err thread.

    They talk about an IM forum and that is BHW for sure. Now this Merch shit is going through the roof for Amazon and every T D and H will try this.
