The COVID pandemic shifted e-commerce in 2020, maybe more than any other time in history.

Traditional retail sales have declined but e-commerce has seen a 129% year-over-year growth in U.S. and Canadian orders as of April 21st, 2020 with an impressive 146% growth in all online retail orders.

"So what does that mean for you, as an existing or aspiring e-commerce side hustler?

That’s a great question & why I created this course.

It means now is the time, more than ever, to create, launch and scale your e-commerce side hustle this year! More and more customers are changing their retail shopping habits and are switching to online shopping and buying from new e-commerce businesses.

This means new potential customers all over the world, for your product or service.

You deserve a slice of that pie.


Right now, you're likely asking yourself at this point...

"So how do I get a slice of the e-commerce boon with my e-commerce business?

First and foremost you'll need an e-commerce business!

But once you have that, you need the following to compete in this booming opportunity...

You NEED a tested formula for success that experts in the field have used already.

You NEED to know the tools that help automate your work so you can achieve scale.

You NEED direction for how to get started.

That's what you'll get with this course.


Here's How I've Achieved Six Figure Online Growth Through My E-Commerce Side Hustles

I co-own and operate a few shopify sites selling e-commerce products. Here's what a typical month of only business for one of the the online businesses.

I've been launching, designing and scaling e-commerce websites for almost 10 years now.

I didn't start out as a success. I struggled with e-commerce marketing for a long time ;(

In fact, I spent the first few years just learning and experimenting with e-commerce marketing. I spent $1,000's of dollars and 100's of hours on e-courses, workshops, webinars; EVERYTHING, just so I could soak up all the knowledge.

It wasn't until last year, when COVID-19 forced us all to be home for a few months, that I started to figure things out. I spent that time in front of my computer testing the information I've been gathering for the last 10 years. For the first time in 10 years, I was able to actually experiment with all the information I've been gathering over the years, and gather real data.

I cracked the e-commerce "scaling" code!

After testing out a few experiments, I was able to design a formula for success that now brings me well over $15K in sales a month from one of my sites.

Because of that success, I launched another side-hustle using the same formula!

My newest side hustle is on track to do well over six figures in sales during my first year in business.

You can achieve the same success as well.

This short course is inspired by the times.

If 2020 taught any of us anything, having one income wasn't it. I didn't really experience the levels of hardship a lot of people faced because I was prepared with the information and tools to grow my business online, when much of our retail economy in the U.S. collapsed under the pandemic. I also own retail stores as well.

After seeing so many people out of work and talking to my friends who haven't "cracked-the-code" for scaling their side-hustles, I felt compelled to put the information in a program that's easy to consume, accessible and delivered in a style thats easy-to-understand for those interested in investing in growing and scaling their side-hustles.

This easy-to-follow video course brings together proven tips, strategies and actionable steps that will help transform your knowledge and understanding of e-commerce marketing to the next level. It will give you the confidence, tools and point you in the right direction to further scaling your e-commerce side-hustle to a six figure side-hustle.

The 5+ hour program consists of all of the things I use for my e-commerce businesses, today.
