STT: Were there any hard moments/times before you made your breakthrough that you would like to share? Ecom Influencer: Ryan Melnick

RM:  When I started in this business in 2016, there were very few “courses” or “gurus”. I actually started by fulfilling my orders in Aliexpress manually by hand! Order fulfillment software did not exist quite yet. So for me, it REALLY WAS just going out there and practicing trial and error every day. For that reason, the first 6 months or so were truly the grind. 

STT: What is something that most people don’t know about you and they would be surprised to find out?

RM: I am in 7 Fantasy Football Leagues. (NFL football is my guilty pleasure)

STT: What do you like to do when you are not working?

RM: Travel the world with my Fiance, Hang out with my pup, find other ways to make money… :0

STT: What is the most important piece of advice you can give to new entrepreneurs starting out today?

RM: One attribute for growth on the road of entrepreneurship involves self understanding. It is unbelievably important to know who you are and where your strengths and weaknesses lie. It’s HIGHLY UNLIKELY that you will have a group of people behind you supporting you on the path of entrepreneurship. Nobody will believe in you as much as you will believe in yourself. Be persistent, fail early and often, and never give up.

STT: What’s your plans for the next 2, 5 and 10 years. What’s your future vision for your business?

RM: Continue to grow my personal brand and focus on building more forms of passive income.

STT: Anything new you are working on that you are excited about?

RM: My revamped 43+ Hour Program – Dropshipping Perfection 2.0 was just launched recently. We put on our very first $20K/Day Mastermind in Orlando last month. There will be more $20K/Day Masterminds throughout the US in 2020!
