Hi! I hope you are all doing well as you are reading this. I would like to introduce myself. I am a mother of two from California in the United States. Although I have been a fan in the shadows for years this is the first time I have come out the woodwork to say "Hello". I guess for a while I was a little intimidated and overwhelmed with so much information. I literally had NO idea what I wanted to do or how to make it work or what could actually work or what was a scam...whew! lol So just a little history, I'll try to keep it to a paragraph. I have 2 small girls. I went back to college and graduated in 2013, but trouble was when i graduated, I lost my college related childcare. they were supposed to cover 6 months after graduation to give graduates time to find work. Budget cuts. So I had to stay home with my 3 year old until she became school age. September 2015 she attended school and I started looking for work. Just as everything started moving in the right direction I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and became seriously ill. But now, I finally feel back to health. But I can't return to regular 9-5 work. What better time to follow my dream of an online income! As I stated before, I have always looked to BHW as the most current and experienced forum when it comes to internet marketing and online income streams. I respect your opinions so much. That is why it has taken so long to post anything. After a lot of thought I think I have found my avenue. I know you all can't give too much information but any advice would be appreciated. I don't have much to invest right now, so i can't afford to buy a program or ebook. I would like to use the Franklin Hattchet aliexpress method to sell on a website, ebay, amazon and craigslist. I want to also use social media to promote/sell products. I also want to purchase certain bestselling items to sell at a booth at conventions/expos/events. I would also be doing tutorial/review videos on youtube. giveaways. contests, etc Also FB/IG promotion. Build my following and sales and monetize my IG/FB with "shoutouts" and partnerships. People pay for ad space at our booths, etc. I know it sounds like a lot but have had PLENTY of time to think, lol. Of course this is the abridged version. There is a lot more planing and details but you get the jist. Do you thinks this is a good idea? Have any of you had success with dropshipping from aliexpress? Would any of you mind sharing your experience? The good? The bad? The ugly? Thank you for taking time to read and whatever advice you can offer is greatly appreciated.
