Meet Your Instructors
in this video, we're going to give you some more background about ourselves as your instructors. Like I mentioned the last video, my name is ERic Campbell And my entrepreneurship journey began when I was 13 years old and at that time I was playing an online game called ruins game and one day I decided to write a word document guide on how to make money in that game and I posted it up on Ebay and I was amazed to see that people spent money buying this guy and not only that, but they were saying it made their lives better by helping them in this game. Ever since then, I've been hooked starting the most random online business ideas that you can imagine and my experience importing started when I was in high school. The first product I ever imported were some random iphone cases from china. Remember importing coca cola cases and Red bull cases, which I later found out was illegal because of the copyright issues but at the time it was my first taste of importing and I loved it and eventually...
I moved on to importing men's magnetic therapy bracelets from china and sold them on ebay and later amazon. And while I was doing this, it was a rainy day outside. I decided to teach a course on how I was importing just for fun. Let's see what happens And I never would have expected that that course would blow up in the way that it did and when it blew up while I was a sophomore at Penn State, I just kept teaching more courses and ever since then I've been teaching a bunch of different courses in all various entrepreneurship subjects And right now I have over 40,000 students that come from all over the world taking my courses or my name is Eric Rodney. I always had an entrepreneurial bullet bug in me. Ever since the age of eight years old, I had looked at how to make money online. I've always wanted a green laser pointed pointed For some reason I don't know why, but I went straight to Ebay because that's where I could find it and bought this laser pointer within three days. It came to my house. I looked at where it came from, it was Shenzhen china. It came out pretty quickly but it seems like the seller was in the U. S. I just didn't understand it. I looked more into it soon enough. I found myself selling on Ebay. My first product imported from china naturally was iphone cases just like eric. So why was this? Well my friends in school had IPhones right when they came out in 2007 in 2008. I noticed that in these stores these cases were charging, 2030, even $40. It was a piece of plastic. Why would this cost so much money. It didn't make sense to me. Then I looked at the manufacturing process, it was injection molding, simple process required no labor at all. It was just a machine in china that made these cases and put a nice little graphic on it. I was thinking if they can make $40, I can too, as I talked about before I sourced these from china and sold them on Ebay. Soon I would customize my own cases, build my own brands and go from there. I've been selling on amazon for about three years now and on amazon it's a game changer for me. I don't even have to touch this inventory. I source the item, inspect it. No, it's good and ship it directly over to amazon. I build brands around these items. I've sourced over 10 different products on Amazon now and they all do phenomenally well. I have a process of how I sourced these items and it's all been in my head before. But now I'm sourcing all my knowledge and creating sheets, processes and videos for you so you can recreate my success in selling amazon as well. In this video, we talked a little bit about ourselves and our backgrounds. In the next video we will cover the course design
