About this Course

"The Colombian Revelation."

Nearly a decade ago I got a call from a friend of mine living in Miami, USA. The grumpy guy on the other side of the phone was whining about a Colombian shipment of his that was apparently held hostage by Florida's customs officiales. Again.

 30 minutes later, from the comfort of my couch, using only my mobile phone I shared with him some insights regarding the situation and how I think it should be handled. 48 hours later, 08:00 AM eastern time Florida, a yellow DHL truck was already by his door step carrying his precious cargo. 

His next call could be described as a Hallelujah song, one that made me realize hey, I've got something here. Since then I've spent my time perfecting a variety of skills, participating in this wonderful game called "Import Export", or IM/EX as some of the industries entrepreneurs call it among themselves.

In my course "How NOT To Import from China" I will methodically cover the basic infrastructure of the industry followed by a one-on-one guided tour through the back doors & alleys of the IM/EX business. 

Oh, about that Colombian shipment? I got to sample some of it in my next trip to Miami, and I have to tell you it was the best coffee I had until that day.

Use my knowledge and experience to learn a business that can make you thousands of dollars in profits from the very first shipment.

"Kong-Fu Panda"

The course is called as it does because China is the easiest place you can choose to import from. Our natural tendency to go for China can seem obvious due to China´s reputation for low prices, vast variety of suppliers & the chance for high margins.They are good reasons to choose China but I ask, "Why limit yourself?". 

Learn in this course how to import products from any country. Your loosing so many possibilities when you limit your self just to China. Businessmen think big and don't limit themselves, this is the place for you to truly develop.

Dream Big - Achieve Greatness.

This course will give you a chance to scale up your business or, if you're a complete beginner - teach you a whole profession by covering all the basics and later, drilling-down to some of this industries most unspoken trades.

"Sell Me This Pen" - A word on selling your products on-line

Amazon, Rakuten, eBay and other e-Commerce sites are doing insanely well and are incredibly profitable. On the first quarter of 2016 Amazon itself pulled in a net income of $513 million, on a revenue of $29.1 billion!

There are some reasons for Amazon's success, some of them are: Their vision for growth over profits, constant improvement policy and an excellent sales platform. But, one more very important element is the fact that importing a product or, even creating your own personal private brand (and using their FBA service) has become so easy in comparison to the past that A LOT of people started doing it. 

Selling online on places like Amazon is an excellent option and will be covered in the course but again, don't limit yourself! You can open-up a shop, rent space in the mall or even find wholesalers or retailers to sell your products to, TOGETHER with the online campaign!

We will have a complete BONUS section on Amazon and more online sales possibilities.

The possibilities are endless and the time to act is now .
