  1. Who do you agree with: my dad (15:59) 🤷‍♂️ or me (16:26) 🤷‍♀️ ???

  2. I need someone advice…

    Currently I live in China… I've been here 6yrs now….

    I am from the U.S., so dealing with money and banking etc. Is pretty damn impossible… From such a distance…

    So if I open an online store or something like this…. Where could I possibly put that money? Spending money is easy enough… But how about receiving?

  3. Hi Sara, gr8 content as usual.

    Got a question though, recently FB introduced something called Off-Facebook Activity whereby the history of any person browsing and searching for a specific product will be deleted based on his/her choice. Which means, no records will be tracked to target a specific audience via FB ADs any more. Does this mean, Goodbye Facebook ads forever ? I wish if you can clarify on this… thnx …Samir

  4. Hey sera,

    I have been watching your videos and i started my own store. Can you review it? : www.flexparadise.com

    One problem that i came across is that as a european is really hard to get a second payment gateway. Only paypal works, which of course paypal has a lot more clicks to make the customer buy your product. Any advice on that?
    Thank you!

  5. Sarah, thanks for your information. Much appreciated. I've had some visitors and TWO checkout abandons. (one customer submitted her address, three times when I checked the analytics). Hey, I'm grateful. At first, I thought it was the background image I had on the checkout page, which could confuse customers. They may think, they were purchasing that item. It was removed. If you get some time, can you take a look? And leave your valuable expertise at [email protected] Thanks.

  6. I love you so much! You are amazing and awesome! thanks for the great tips

  7. Excuse me I would like to know if I can drop shipping from AliExpress to EBay? Thank you for your answer

  8. EVERY "Guru" states they can create a store and have $200/day coming in.. in 3 days!??

  9. SO MANY QUESTIONS!! I've looked at AliExpress and a LOT of their products (fishing gear) LOOK CHEAP! I've looked at the reviews which pretty much CONFIRMS my first observation. How can you TELL without actually ever seeing the product yourself!?

  10. Sarah, I'm retired so spending time on the business isn't a problem! MY problem, I'm assuming like others, is WHAT questions to ask? I've watched literally hundreds of videos, including most of yours, and it seems like with each video I watch…I learn about something else I didn't know about!? How would I EVER KNOW to ask a question about ** or #####!? I WANT to start on online store…I NEED to start an on line store… but it's the question not asked that is going to bite me!!

  11. Hey Sarah I wanted to ask you is the course of Adrian up to date or does it include old Videos from 2016-2017? I want to buy it but hesitating cuz of that. Thx

  12. I literally had to pause video to tell you that I for one much prefer you to speak into the camera than to admire your graphics. Nothing against the graphics, they're neat, but i'd much rather listen to detail.

  13. Hey sarah, love your videos! Always Engaging and packed with insightful info with no gimics 👍

    I know your CRAZY busy but if you could take a look at my store ive just launched i would really really appreciate your feedback. Im new and need as much help as i can get 🙂 :

    Www. TidalXpressUK.com

    Thanks and keep up the great content 👍

  14. Ok point #10 really shook me. That's the most brilliant thing I've seen on your channel. Thanks Sarah!

  15. Well, I guess people that want magical solutions for starting their businesses don't find value in actual useful information. Really nice video, thanks!

  16. Love watching your videos, hesitated to ask for opinions but now I believe I should try, I know you're a busy woman so please whenever you have time would be great.

    my website is https://mintloadout.com Maybe I should put a FAQ page?

  17. Sarah — you totally got me with #5! Since starting my online reselling business two months ago, I found myself going to McDonalds constantly!! It has gotten to a point where I am exhausted, sluggish and down right fighting to get energy to do the things that I need to excel my business!! Although, some may find that tip silly, I think it is one of the best tips in this video. You really have to take care of yourself first before you can carry your amaziness into any business. Also, any more resources for healthy eats?! From your stereotypical American Rubbish Eater across the pond <3

  18. Price differentiation is very important. Also, spend money to get back time. Money is literally like having a time machine. Be time obsessed.

  19. I actually used to find you very irritating and unrelatable. I’ve come around because it’s hard to deny the value your channel provides. Good work! 🙂

  20. I am really touched with your last words of wisdom about the time, it hit my soul huhuhu

  21. Hey Sarah! I'm a newbie and pretty lost.. I really think highly of you and trust your opinion, so if you could ever find the time to review my new store and just tell me if there are things missing there — I'd be extremely thankful. Thanks anyways, I love your videos!

  22. Hi! Can you review my store? Deadendstore.com. I've been failing but I'd really like advice from anyone.

  23. Thank you Sarah for your very wise words. As a budding entrepreneur, those were the words I needed to hear. My dear, you've shifted my perspective and recalibrated my thought patterns.

  24. Your last words stuck me so hard. Im currently at work watching your videos and i always work on my designs for my future online shop at work too.. i was always scared that i should not be splitting my concentration between work and passion but… i agree TIME is precious and if you think u r wasting time move on to something more productive♥️ Thank you

  25. Could you give advice on people who want to start an online store but not drop ship? Like how to manage the finances and orders ;n; im currently in a bad position because im an artist with no business skills and i really want to accommodate for my overseas audience.

  26. Love your videos and how you presenting you ideas. The animated short clips are kinda cute and really getting my attention to your words 😊

  27. Took me years to understand patience is the key to success !!! Trial n error…so many youngsters now literally create something sit n wait for a week and say "why am I not making money or rich yet" lmao put in the work !!

  28. Great video again Sarah and so true words. Best regards from Germany, René 🙋🏻‍♂️😊

  29. It took 2 years before my second business was profitable. But then the product was in development for 2 years. Then the first week end netted US$26k

  30. Sarah, do you use a script or teleprompter to record your videos? Please share with us how you do it. Your on camera delivery is impeccable. Thanks.

  31. Hi Sarah, Amazing video!! I agree with you; it really landed. Thank you for this stunning insight. Much appreciated. -Sean

  32. Both. Glad your conversation with dad triggered this video. Now i know more . Love knowledge That's useful. Thanks.

  33. Hey Sarah,
    Thank you for all the tips that you provided, I've learned so much about it. Truthfully, I haven't started anything yet. I just kept on browsing on YT to learn the nature of 'dropshipping'. I even have a notebook to write down all do's and dont's when doing the dropshipping and I am so thankful that I found your channel, it gave me a lot of ideas. I am really planning to have mine too but I need to be prepared, which means, I need to burn my eyebrows if what product that I need to add if I finally decided to have my own eMarket store. While I was watching this, there is one AREA that makes me confused, THE TAX THINGY. If I would pay a tax for my sales, how would I do that? Do I have to register first my eMarket Store. Sorry, I know that my question sounds dumb but I am new to this kind of stuff.


  34. Holy cow that last bit on time is exactly what ive been realizing lately. Like you, i don't think about the money as much as ive found ways that work for me in my business, however after a few years of business im starting to really appreciate the little free time i have for family and myself. Mistakes eat up time, although i learn and persevere through those mistakes, its still something i can never get back.

    Love the animations, vids are really more fun to watch now.

  35. I love your channel Sarah! Such great advice and content. I just want to add to your last point. I completely agree with you in how valuable our time is. But for many, myself included it is not easy to think of losing money when you hac a family and children to provide for. It can be scary. I know when I was younger, still living at home with my folks and not nearly as many responsibilities. I was a lot more courageous to take risks and chances in starting new things. Now with a family, I have to think of them as well. I have every intentions in starting my own online store. But I am taking my time, getting educated with all the info I need to do it right and have less risks.

  36. My favourite part was finding out that you're either vegan or vegetarian (hopefully vegan). Yay 🙂

  37. Sarah, thank you for the info. This video was very motivating, keep up the great work.!

  38. "In a video that almost no one watched…" Pauses video and checks his history to see if he watched it. noticed he did in-fact watch it Nice 😀

  39. HI there Sarah I love your content and all your vlogs, however do you have a video version of your ebook rather than a downloadable readable version or planning to have one available?, as I suffer from severe dyslexia and find it very difficult to read from downloadables, also my learning style is visual, auditory not reading/writing and I find the animations very enlightening and informative and helps me to understand the contents of how to be a successful entrepreneur any suggestions would be awesome and again thank you for all your amazing content and guidance, as I am focusing on opening my own POD/Dropshipping store within the next 2 weeks once I get it live I will send you a link to get your honest opinion and guidance to make it successful.

  40. This is exactly what we needed, a gentle reminder of how life works.,.,., thanks Wholesale Ted lady 🙂

  41. thank you very much for this video it was inspiring. You are a person deserved to be respected

    Than you again

    Friend from Egypt

  42. This is so great! And this is why, in 3 easy steps. From a filmmaker to you who wants to make YT videos that work: 1. super-powerful interesting and useful "straight to the point" content…no fluff, interresting even for people outside the films target group, the wiever gets value from the first sentence and you are not forced to buy to many books, courses and other products related to the chnnel. 2. Wery well produced, looks like "lets just tape you in the office with my phone" editing and sound is taken good care of but its not "over produced" its down to the ground doable. 3. Delivered by a believable, trustful, onest, sweet person with true knowledge that i feel wants to help me….the recipe for sucsess people. Well done and good luck to all you viewers!

  43. I love love,love Sarah's sarcastic attitude. (I hope that's how you spell your name! I've seen others spell it sera so I apologise if I'm wrong).It's refreshing and unique on YouTube. I've began research into dropshipping as I am coming in to some money and want my own business, I always have wanted, but never have been able to afford to risk any money. So far I have this channel, oberlo and one other… Can anyone recommend any other fantastic and trustworthy channels where I can find solid info about dropshipping please?

    I am soooo excited. I wish I could start now, I have so many ideas but I have to wait ha.

    Blessings and love from the UK.

  44. You're pretty salty in this video… and I like it, because you're totally right. It was fun to see that you don't like it when people don't follow your advice and then say they did 🙂

  45. I really enjoyed this video as it really speaks to the part of you that are afraid to make committed decisions, take chances and just swim upstream for a bit. People are so afraid to try new things for the fear of failure. therefor I will just stick to me dead end 9 to 6 job because…ummmm….well…. it's security and comfort I seek…Ya know….? Weldone! Love it!

  46. i personally not afraid of spending money on hiring people im afraid of how to manage employees how to communicate what i need and overall be their boss being boss is not easy for me

  47. We all innately understand that our lifetimes are limited, but as aging accumulates, the reality of the passing of years becomes apparent in so many ways! Smart folks respond to the urgency by doing. Now.
    Thanks again Sarah! 👍

  48. I am so glad some who also agrees with me, that time is more precious than money. No doubt the most wisest thing I heard today.

  49. 17:44 "Remember, you can always make back your money…but you can NEVER make back your time". This hit me on many levels. So true! Today I was actually under a decision to go to a 9-5 interview for a remote job (i'm currently 9-5 local), or not to go. I couldn't make up my mind, but deep down i felt that this isn't what I want. What i want is scalability, freedom to set my time, freedom to work less (eventually) and explore the new world of being a business owner. This message made me change my mind and cancel the interview, so I can focus on working on myself rather than working for someone else's company. Thank you!

  50. Your business failed because you ate McDonalds…
    Feels like like I'm watching CNN.
    But it's strangely probably true.

  51. I'm gonna save this video and rewatch it whenever I need a boost. I especially appreciated the unexpected mistake of not eating well. This is something I do daily and as a consequence my health stops me from getting things done. As well as being worried about losing money and in my case, getting into more debt, which to me is the same thing. I have a lot of mental and physical changes to make, but at least now I know where to start. Thank you! This is honestly the YouTube channel I value the most. Thank you for your hard work.

  52. I agree with DjArmedWolf, "You can always make back your money but you can never make back your time." Very powerful tip.

  53. Look you're great, I'm amazed how you can do all this coz I'm computer backwards and retarded, How can i work with you where i give you a ton of designs that will sell and you make me rich? I'm an idea generating machine, i should work for a fucking government think tank but i do not want to fuck around playing computer. If i can't email some ideas that you can make work and split the profit from what advice do you have for someone who can come up with hundreds of winning ideas but blacks out when a computer is in front of him. I can come up with loads of shit that will sell but I'm too thick to even use teespring, I want to say bang there's a load of designs, there's who to market it to, gis a shout at the end of the month with a big fat cheque. Plus i don't wanna deal with contracts etc. If i give you a design that will sell and suggest who to market it to i want be able to allow you to wiggle ya wand and make the magic work where you say this month this shirt has made 2 grand, bang there's your cut. I trust i won't need contracts and all that crap with you, i just wanna say there ya go, and if you say it's made 1000 i'll believe ya, if it's made 2000, okey dokey..?

  54. Hi Sarah, Time IS our most impt asset. Can you state the thesis quickly at video start with supporting bullets. Then re-state it at the end. Love your videos, packed with fluff too, but the cheerleader ones, like this one, are so LONG (time…). I keep saying, "Get to the point!" Btw, you're a stunning genius.

  55. I learn that from many failures attempts. Now, I'm working on a store with my family and I'm investing like anytime before. Please, I would like your advice if I'm on the right track. Thanks!

  56. You really know your stuff, I have been in corporate sales all my life and I am literally sucked into your world.
    If only I had marketing people half as good as you working in the companies I worked throughout my life for I could have added a zero to my full revenue, maybe 2.
    I am literally mesmerized by what you say and how you communicate it.
    I wonder if I am not going to start something just to test some of your recipes.

  57. oh this chic loves flexin' …my next comment will be a link to my new online store, yall like rubber bats?

  58. 2:23 she keeps calling him Cyan and then shows his comment where it says Kyle

    What kind of a name is Cyan

  59. Number one is completely untrue. When I first started cell phone repair and resell I made profits on my first sale. Total startup capital- $50, I profited $100

  60. Hi Wholesale Ted, I watched the video. It's encouraging. I'm not afraid to start but just haven't made time to start the business. Been busy…still working on designs. I have five designs but not ready to put on t-shirts yet. I have a degree in Graphic Arts and thought it would be a great way to use it, designing something.
