A business isn't a way to get rich fast. A business is simply when you learn to do these 3 things really well:
1) Creating or finding great products/services to sell.
2) Putting those products in front of the right customers.
3) Giving those customers a great reason to buy.
And each person will have their own journey to get there with a LOT of hard work & sacrifices along the way ??
On this channel, we discuss all topics for ecommerce business owners (with a sprinkle of motivation thrown in too) to help them master these 3 things! On this channel, we offer:
* Case studies on successful ecommerce stores.
* Tutorials for apps & online tools.
* Low-cost, beginner-friendly product sourcing methods (Print On Demand & Dropshipping).

@Holy smokes batman he learnt to ignore people
@Carmen Amang ???

Another GREAT LESSONS! Thank you Sarah!
Yes you made mistakes, everyone does at first. The important thing is that you learned from them. You should get a lot of points just for stating a business at the age of 16! That in itself is amazing. And now you can help others by teaching them to avoid those mistakes! Good job, you are helping people AND making money! You go!
“I was 16 and I was pretty dumb”
Except she discovered multiple niche markets while all the other kids were probably getting high.
Excellent video content! Excuse me for butting in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you ever tried – Franaar enthuse grace Formula (just google it)? It is an awesome exclusive product for getting rid of constipation without the normal expense. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my m8 after many years got excellent results with it.
I was getting drunk & high
I think all I did was staring at tree leaves when I was 16…
I can confirm this.
And is now super rich.
I’ve been watching you for about two years and I can certainly say you really care about your audience.
Just watching OR have you actually implemented??
This is the most impressive story of business from a 16 year old that I’ve ever heard of. You may have been young and inexperienced, but you were definitely not dumb lol.
“:::for many raisins…” ah my beloved new zealandianeseans and their wonderful pronounciation…. makes me giggle every time :D….. GREAT CONTENT by the way… very educational. please keep it up!!!
Yo that upselling with the gameshark was freaking geniusss!!!!
I just started my first store! Thanks for these videos I am really writing down what you are saying !!!!
That’s great! How was your journey?
Anyway I would like to thank you because you inspire my entrepreneurial spirit once again. In our culture here in the Philippines, we are expected to have a job until we die. We are only respected when we have a job. I resigned because I wanted to explore and try alternative things…and yet after failing one time my mom told me how disappointed she is to me and that I’m just a lazy person who can’t go to work. Take note that I have a mental illness which is the main factor why I don’t enjoy the employment setup. I got stuck for what it seems like a long time…and I consider myself a failure all the time because of what my mom told me…but you reminded me of who I am. I am a woman who is not afraid to fall over and over because I know how to get back up everytime. I am a woman not afraid to take chances and risks because I don’t care what the world will say about my choices. The only reason why I was deeply hurt by my mom’s words was because it came from her, someone I care about and have a big weight in my heart. I decided last christmas to cut my emotional ties with my mom…and stop trying to please her and stop listening to whatever she has to say to me.
But long story short…thank you. It’s been so long and I’ve forgotten who I truly am, until you reminded me of it. ☺
Thought about only fans?
How are you doing now?
Great story, thanks!
you’re an adorable funny teacher! I had a teacher a bit like that when I was in college, and she used to be the most loved, and I think you deserve that kinda lovely support as well! The way you imply fun things to make things stick to our head is insanely great! I love your channel!
Kudos on starting a business so young and then being able to pivot when it wasn’t working so well! Thank you for sharing your experience.
Omg I love you Sarah, “In real life, you don’t get rich by hoarding your money, you get rich by hoarding your time.”
