He started selling on Amazon out of his college dorm room and scaled his business hiring VAs, and since he didn’t like the existing platforms in getting VAs he thought of building his own market place for $5,000 mainly for Amazon sellers and eventually branched out and recently got acquired by one of his clients. His greatest motivation is to be his own boss and that’s why he started his own business when he was in college.
He started off buying and reselling people’s textbook and part of the challenges he encountered during the months of his business was him not having a place to put and or buy a place for his inventories, he was served a cease and desist letter from his school to stop his operation as his business caused competition to the school’s bookstore.
By overcoming these challenges he started his own store in Amazon and started to experiment to build connections with manufacturers and started his dropshipping venture and started listing products in his Amazon store targetting consumer in their college years to which he failed over and over. It was until he thought to branch out from his comfort zone that he found a baby product industry and his business took off and were able to scale his business. This where he learned how to hire a VA, and invested his time analyzing a better hiring system, and started building his own VA hiring platform.
He is passionate about helping businesses hire a VA, he built Outsource School a one-stop-shop for business owners to make their day-to-day operation run smoothly.
He has a vision of growing Outsource School and make it big as Freeup. Taking the lessons he learned with him and apply it with his own business.
For him he got the best advice from his mother, he was told to “work hard, play hard”. A piece of advice he can give is for someone to map out what his/her ideal day would look like and spending the first hours on doing the most important thing for that day.
He is into learning new things, currently, he is learning webinars, masterclasses, learning Vietnamese, and other things he can use in operating his business.

Looking back, he would tell his younger self to network early and add value to other people and it will definitely pay off in the long run.
