So, you've been thinking about starting an online store for a while now. It's a great idea. The barrier to entry has never been lower and with the technology available, you can easily build a beautiful ecommerce website.

But you're still a bit hesitant. Sure, you can create a sleek website, but what about the money you'll have to invest in product? At the end of the day, it's still your hard earned cash.

But what if it doesn't have to be? What if someone offered to pay your up front inventory costs on thousands of items? What if they even offered to manage all your shipping and fulfillment operations, so you could focus on other areas of the business?

In this video, I'm going to explain exactly how dropshipping works, show you how to find drop shippers for your products, and give solutions to some common problems associated with drop shipping.
