Why this business was started
I always had wondered what it would be like to start my own business but thought it would be too much and cost too much to start. Full disclaimer, it is a lot of hard work to start any business and make it successful but I didn't think I could start one with minimal overhead like a 'dropshipping' business. It was a good first start.
The reason of selling this business
I had started and threw some things up against a wall, then had learned Facebook ads were key in propelling your droppshipping store. So, I took the money I had invested into that. After about a year and plenty of learning experiences, I ran out of money. I intermittently started another business which was more successful. I'm just dedicating my time to that.
