Welcome to the complete Shopify Aliexpress Dropshipping course.  I'm going to teach you, step-by-step, how to build a highly profitable eCommerce store, from scratch.  You don't need any prior knowledge of eCommerce or any technical skills - if you can use a web browser you are good to go!

My name is Tim Sharp and I've been a successful online entrepreneur since 2004. Over the years, I've built successful businesses in eCommerce, WordPress, Affiliate Marketing and Web and Database Development.  I have extensive knowledge of the complete business cycle and a wealth of real world experience. But the best part is I've been able to live the Internet lifestyle, making great money working from anywhere and having the flexibility to do what I want when I want. And that's what I'm going to teach you !

At the end of this course you will have a profitable eCommerce store which could supplement your existing income or transform your life by giving you your very own online business that could even allow you to escape the 9 to 5 altogether.   It's entirely up to you, your commitment, your determination - if I can do this then anyone can.  I'll be your instructor throughout and I'll  even help you kickstart your store by sharing products and markets with you that are working for me today.

The course is designed with the total beginner in mind, but if you're struggling in eCommerce many of the tips and tricks I'll share with you will help you on your way.  I'll be taking you step-by-step, showing you exactly what I have done to build a profitable eCommerce business.  We'll be learning by doing and within the first few lectures you will have built your very own fully operational eCommerce store.  From there, I'll teach you how to find profitable markets, find hot selling products within those markets, identify your ideal customer and then drive them to your store to buy your products.  

The final lectures will focus on how you can build your store towards $100K / year and beyond.

So what are you waiting for, let's get started right now on building a financially secure future
