    Hello, I'm so excited ! Starting this journey to be able to push myself and stop just learning and actually start working on somethng.

    So first things first.
    I'm 26 years old and I hate my job so much that it keeps me very motivated to built my own business.
    I'm not native english speaker so please don't hate me for bad english.
    I've signed working contract for another 7 months.
    After 7 months I want to say that I will not continue with that job anymore.

    Main Goal:
    Build up a dropshipping business.
    Leave my job after 7 months, or make it atleast a side job.

    Goal for first month:
    Make my first sale

    What I need now:
    Research Niche - Done
    Search products - Done
    Competition Check - Done
    Business Name - Done
    Domain - Done
    Create Shopify account - Done
    Build up Shopify site -
    Create IG account + follow -
    Create FB account + fan page -
    Create FB ads -
    And more

    I would appreciate any suggestions, this will be my first real attempt to something.
    I will try to update this regulary. Hopefully i will not give up.

    Update 1

    - Created temporary simple shopify site for testing
    - Created temporary logo
    - Added 10 products to site
    - Created IG account

    Today I will try to add 10-20 more products, minor changes to site, play with photoshop or outsource images, start following on IG (need to check some bots - put it on slow mode) and create FB page.

    Sad Update 2

    I've got some problems with facebook so I'm now waiting for a respond from support (which will take some time).
    So I thought that will be nice to learn more from BHW and it was a bad/good choice. I was not again focused on one thing, I just saw few IG massive success journeys, so I was like OMG I need to do that too and start banking ! It's so simple, just create accounts, buy proxies, set up a bot, create landing page, etc and scale it up ! Luckily I was searching more and more and realised that it is not that simple and that I'm not that person which will be promoting fake or bs products.
    Same was with other social medias (pinterest, facebook, etc).
    But I'm for now again focused on dropshipping, lesson learned...
    Good thing is that I've learned how some social media accounts works and that social media will be very important for my dropshipping business.

    Goal for next week: (maybe 2 weeks)
    - make my site looks much much better
    - 30 products, 3 categories (10 products in each categorie)
    - start growing 2 IG niche related accounts, facebook page
    - set up fb ads campaigns to test if my products can be profitable

    I'm not sure with other social media, maybe someone can give me advice.
    I hope that my next update will be more positive.
