Business for Beginners: 15 Business Myths Holding You Back
So, Who Am I and Why Does It Matter?
My name is Amanda Bowyer and I am a dedicated entrepreneur and author. Over the last two years I've created an incredibly successful online retail business completely from scratch. Not kidding here - I literally started with nothing - no background in business, no large investment, and no extra time because I was still working a full-time job.
I'm also just like you:
Sick of playing the "career" game
Fed up with politics in the workplace
Tired of pouring my heart and soul into a company that doesn't care, and
Done watching others reap the rewards of my hard work
After only six months I didn't have to. I quit my day job and dedicated all my time to my online business.
After one year I was making well over my previous salary and working a fraction of the time.
And after two years I was able to buy a new home, take as many vacation days as I wanted, travel, and spend time with my husband (and dog) - all while still increasing my sales, more than doubling my profits, writing three books, and creating an online course.
That's all well and good for me, right? But it's also absolutely fantastic for you because...
Now I can help you do the exact same thing.
I've learned a lot over the past two years. I mean a LOT. I spent countless hours researching eBay and Amazon, reading articles and tutorials, sifting through forums, looking for the best and most efficient resources, trying out different processes, and watching how-to videos (many of which only showed me how-to NOT make an educational video). Heck, it took me forever just to figure out the basics like budgeting, product sourcing, inventory management, and shipping. And I did it all on my own.
But you don't have to.
I may manage my own online retail business, but at my core I'm an educator. I have a B.A. degree in Secondary Education, as well as a M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction. Teaching has always been my biggest and deepest passion. In fact, I tried to teach my 4-year-old neighbor to read before I could even do it myself!
What that means is this:
I understand educational best practices and learning mechanics
I know how to adapt instruction so it's accessible to all types of learners
I can present information logically and succinctly
I create lessons so the curriculum builds naturally on previous knowledge
I am eager to provide instructional support to those I'm working with
I care deeply for the success of my students
