Lockdown has consequentially led to thousands of businesses going under and millions of people struggling to make ends meet. Those who have seen the writing on the wall quickly shifted to becoming internet entrepreneurs, and thriving by doing so. One of those entrepreneurs is dropshipper James Parry.
Jay is a 28-year-old dropshipping entrepreneur from the United Kingdom who has gone from being a college dropout who went through over 20 jobs to becoming a seven-figure success story during the height of a global pandemic. Working the 9-5 life just wasn’t for him. After 5-6 years of trying to find something he was interested in, Jay realized he needed to be his own boss. This led him to discover the world of e-commerce.
As someone who made over seven figures since the beginning of lockdown, Jay has become an inspiring mentor and role model for others who want to take the big leap and start up their own internet-based hustle. He has already helped numerous people quit their jobs and become full-time dropshipping entrepreneurs.
Some of the benefits of unlocking financial freedom for him include being able to work from anywhere in the world, traveling to exotic locations, being able to buy a Lamborghini Huracan, Audi R8, and Range Rover, and having time to enjoy life to the fullest.
Even though there is a pandemic going on and it may seem challenging to become as successful as Jay has, he believes anyone can achieve what he did. His advice is to simply start on the path to becoming your own boss. There are many who have great ideas but don’t act on them. If Jay had acted sooner than he did, he would likely be even further down his success journey than he currently is.
For people just getting started as entrepreneurs, Jay emphasizes to not give up at the first sign of a challenge or obstacle. These are a natural part of the path to success. What he suggests is understanding why an obstacle appears and then figuring out what you need to change in your approach or method. This helps push you in the right direction. When things seem to be going wrong, Jay stresses to keep your “Why” in mind. It will help you persevere and keep going.
Looking ahead into the future, James is envisioning teaming up with some friends to start a few white-label brands. He loves dropshipping due to the fact that you can switch things up in a single day. If you have an exciting new idea, you can implement it in just 24 hours. Jay has had ideas for new stores that he executed the same day. He started making sales the following day.
To Jay, dropshipping is an extraordinary business model and opportunity to become independently wealthy, even amid a pandemic. In fact, this is one of the business models that is most supported by it due to the significant shift in consumer habits towards online shopping. Jay hopes to help as many people as possible get started on building their brand and experience the success he now enjoys.
