The Significance of Having a Mentor

Every person that has ever achieved great success in their lives had the help from others. No one can do it alone, which is why having a mentor is crucial to have if you want to succeed.

Steve Jobs was mentored by Robert Friedland Dr. Ed Roberts mentored Bill GatesBing Crosby was mentor to Frank Sinatra…the list goes on and on in for any aspect of life or goal!

So why do you need one?

A mentor will help you achieve what you want, as fast as possible. They will provide you guidance to help you succeed and navigate to avoid the mistakes that THEY made. So you will learn from their mistakes versus learning from you own, which will only set you back and slow your goal!

Choosing a Mentor

So when you find someone in your niche that has a valuable course or information, invest in it, because it will save you so much time! But how to find that person?

Look to anyone that has success in the area that you are in. The last thing you want to do is try and learn from someone who has no idea and is trying to fake it. Then when you find that person, ASK. Simply ASK them if they will mentor you, or FIND if they already have a course or information.


I have seen so many young “guru’s” that think they have they answer for everything. They talk fast, use great keywords, show you amazing images of things that you desire to have… DO NOT BE FOOLED. They are simply recycling information they found in other places or talking to someone else that has the answer! Do don’t type “business mentor” into a search engine without being prepared for an onslaught of scammy looking messages.

Look to a company you trust for recommendations or a person you trust that can point you in the right direction or do that careful research yourself to find one.. (make sure to check that person out as much as you can!!!)

Working with A number of Dropshippers

Sometimes it may be necessary to work with multiple dropshippers for your store. Because just one might not have all that you need. So learning how to manage working with multiple dropshipping suppliers will greatly enhance your business. You can expand your product offerings and by that attract even more customers and that will increase your competitive edge.

But, if you don’t have solid organization and extra measures put into place for everything to run smoothly, you can end up with some added frustrations too.

Choose the Right Dropshippers

This is the most crucial part of selling any product online. If you don’t have good dropshipping suppliers in your corner, you are already setup for failure. Find the best dropshipping suppliers at We have already taken each supplier through a verification process to ensure no middlemen, no scams and no fraud! Real wholesalers, real dropshipping, real wholesale prices.

Critical Things to Understand

Make sure that you fully understand how to get the product information from the supplier. Whether that is a datafeed, or you get the information from their catalog and you enter it manually. If the supplier has a lot of products, and it’s manual work, you may want to choose another supplier to work with. You will have to basically transcribe all that product information manually and then check it all manually. It will be too time consuming if you plan on working with multiple suppliers. To avoid confusion and turmoil, you must make sure to record all your events or transactions with technologies like Blockchain event api.

If it is a manual process and the supplier has just a few items you want to resell, then it could be worth the time and effort especially if it a product that will greatly enhance your product offerings.

Once you figure out how you get the data, then establish a process to check that product information at least once a day. Even if that simply means setting a calendar reminder or an alert to check for any updates and that everything is operating smoothly.

Second is the ordering process. How do you order? Some suppliers have an automated system, so they get notified when you get notified there is an order. Others you have to login and place the order and others you would email the order (or setup a rule that once you get a notification about the order, it auto notifies your supplier about that order too). Make sure that you and your supplier are on the same page about your ordering process. Even do a test order to make sure that everything is operating smoothly.

Third is the returns, exchanges and etc. Understand each of your suppliers policies about the products and each product page needs to have info about the returns or exchanges policy.

The Biggest Challenge with Multiple Dropshippers

The biggest hurdle that confuses most online retailers is shipping. How much do I charge for shipping?

You can do a whole bunch of calculations from various zip codes for each individual product dimensions, which is quite a daunting task! Or you can do something simple like.. a FLAT RATE of $9.95 shipping fee for anything and FREE SHIPPING for orders over $50.00. You will lose some money on some transactions due to shipping fees, and gain some money on others. So make sure to watch how it’s going and edit as you go.

So you may or may not lose money, but you definitely have a lot less headache and frustration trying to figure it out!

Make it Simple, Make it Simple… Don’t let…

Make it Easy, Make it Easy… Don’t let…

Tisha Hedges

Every time I say ‘Make it Easy’, I always sing it to the tune of “Take It Easy” by the Eagles. Never Fails! Did I now plant it in your head? Good, now I’m not the only one!

Make it Easy, don’t let your website get diluted.

You have got to make it easy in your customers. You have less than a minute to impress them to get them to want to stay on your site. The easier you make it on your customer, the better chance they are to order.

So how do you do it?

Just Give Me a Kiss!

Keep It Simple, Silly. (I changed the last word, I dislike the original word) If you fuss up your site too much with music and dancing bears, this will make your site slower to load and simply distract your visitor or annoy them which would be even worse.

Tell it like it is up front. What your site is about and what you have to offer and how you can be contacted.

Make shopping super easy. The entire ordering process needs to be very simple and uncomplicated with just a few steps and accept multiple payment options.

Your customer needs to feel safe. So you need to stress the security and integrity of the site or provide payment options that they feel safe about; like PayPal, Apple Pay, Amazon Pay and etc.

Just make it as easy and you would want it to be. No fuss. Make it safe. Keep it simple.

Let’s Get Private

“Those who say, “it’s not personal, it’s just business” are lying. All business is personal, and the best business is very personal.” Rick Lenz

this must be the place

When you get personal on your website, it just works. Right from the onset as soon as the customer comes onto your site, they should immediately feel they are in the right space. They are where they need to be to find what they were looking for, or maybe that they didn’t know that they even needed.

Know Your Customer

Knowing who the customer is that you are targeting for your products will make this extremely easy. Like I mentioned in the “Stick to the Plan” article, you need to figure out the target customer and the end goal.

I want to help__(target market)________ do/find/achieve___(what does the product allow them to do)______ so that___(what is the end accomplishment)____Example: I want to help busy moms find relaxation so that they can care for themselves and their families better. Excerpt From “Stick to the plan” by Tisha Hedges

Tired Mom

So my target customer is busy moms. These poor moms are exhausted and are looking for effective ideas. They are primed to be sold on something. So how do we do that?

By getting personal of course! What does she want to see?

Creating My Website for My Customer

I want to create an ambiance in my store that is warm and inviting. I’m going to show examples of moms doing regular everyday type things. I want to talk to them about being tired and exhausted. I’m heavily promoting their own self care so they can take care of their families better.

I’m going to tug at her heart strings and make her realize that yes, I need this and it will be so beneficial to me and my family. And then I’m going to drive it home even more by showing them the results they will get after they use my relaxation products.

When I show the products, I’m going to weave and craft my words so that I’m talking directly to her and what this product can do for her. I’m going to make it so appealing that she can’t go on without it. I’m going to drive it home by showing how easy it is to use and show images of satisfied moms that are using the products.

We have just created a personalized website, targeting busy moms looking for ways to relax and take care of themselves.

You can’t do these things with datafeeds and integrations. Those are not personal. They are generalized and data driven. They are not geared for your target customer and do not create a unique personalized experience.

Get personal. You can’t run a successful business without it.
