I'm 15 and I want to become one of those kids who you hear is really up there, talking to business owners about promotions and things like that. It's a big goal, but I believe I can make it with enough work. I've been studying dropshipping a lot for the past year and real estate is something that has come up frequently. I've heard of people doing both, people just doing real estate, and vice versa. Right now, I'm set on dropshipping not because of how people like to call it "easy", but because of the business model itself. There's low upfront costs I that's something I can afford since I only have about $1,300 to spend and even then, my parents are pressuring me to buy a car that I really don't want. I just want a cheap moped and save the rest of the money into making a business because that's what I really want. I figured maybe some of you guys could help point me in the right direction since literally everyone I talk to has no idea what to tell me so I have no idea where to go with this. I would raise more money but community stuff like mowing people's lawns just doesn't work where I live. I've been turned down by pretty much every resident in the area. They probably remember me as the kid who tries to sell you stuff because I'm always knocking on their doors regardless, trying to sell them some candy bars for a school contest to win $100 (I won that), or I'm trying to sell them some cookie dough (I won that also), or I'm trying to wash their car (almost nobody said yes to that like mowing lawns). They only accepted the stuff mandated by the school -_- Dropshipping looks like something I could do and I've already invested lots of time making my brand image look good. I have an Instagram, twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and pinterest all of which I post daily pictures of home decor stuff because I want to sell home decor products. I had to learn how to use all of them and I still am. All of them except the Instagram one get almost no views but that's okay because I still have faith in it. I created like 5 shopify stores that had a 30 day trial, each time the trial ran out I moved everything over to the next account so I could keep working on my store. It looks pretty decent. I haven't much of any money on this but I plan to soon for some Facebook ads so that maybe I can actually get someone looking at that page lol. If I could learn from someone that would be great, but I don't like the idea of a course because it sounds very sketchy and I've heard many people learning basically nothing from those courses. Youtube has been my main source of info and the more I think about it, the more it sounds sketchy also. That's why I came here to get more advice. I've listened to countless numbers of Youtubers who are dropshipping and I usually only take the information that is consistent between several of them. Now that I'm hearing more about flipping houses for money off of youtube, it makes you wonder. It seems like just another shiny object in the way, but maybe dropshipping has something that I don't know about yet. Over the past year I feel like I've learned everything, but I know theres still more to learn. So, you tell me. What should I do?
