Why this business was started
I acquired this store in late 2018. The flexibility of the industry interested me more than anything -- having an ability to work from anywhere, anytime. The ability to produce a semi-passive stream of income interested me as well. The niche was a natural place to start for me, as sports/fitness are a big part of my daily life. This made research and getting this thing off the ground much more feasible. Since, a few other opportunities have presented themselves and this store was pushed to the back burner.
The reason of selling this business
As I mentioned above, I am selling the business in relation to my transition to the public sector. I had held on in hopes I could move back towards this one day, but that day is currently not anywhere in sight.
What's involved in running this business
In my opinion, the majority of this business is research. Once you grasp the concepts of order fulfillment, PPC marketing, customer service, etc., it becomes pretty self sufficient. On a typical day, I would fulfill orders first thing in the morning; move to customer service next; then, game plan for paid ads. It's also very important to stay on top of new products and keep up with competitor pricing.
