Shakira M. Brown a.k.a. The Small Biz Whisperer talks bootstrap start-up success with serial entrepreneur Connor Gillivan on the Moment Masters Podcast
In this episode, Gillivan shares how his first business started with a need he and his roommate saw on campus. Instead of spending thousands of dollars on books only to see a small return when reselling, Gillivan and his co-partner began re-selling textbooks through Amazon. Eventually, the duo moved into other product categories and partnered with suppliers to form drop ship relationships and scale their business. As this business scaled and their relationships grew, Gillivan and his partner found yet another opportunity.
“It’s pretty common with entrepreneurs,”
A master of effective supply and demand, Gillivan shares the insights he gained through his own entrepreneurial journey, including:
· Leverage community knowledge to become experts in your field
· Pay attention to and learn from analytics that show what works and what doesn’t
· Experiment with other resources and try new business relationships
· Be curious and ask questions
· Think of ways that your business will add value to clients or customers
Gillivan is also the author of “Free Up Your Business: 50 Secrets to Bootstrap Million Dollar Companies.” Checkout his company, Freee.Up.com to hire or sign up as a freelancer.
