Hi, I’m Steve.
This is my blog detailing my journey as an entrepreneur. I am an Englishman living in China for the past 6 years most of which was spent doing not a lot! However for the past 2 years I have ran my own “business” honestly with not much success. My initial plan to import goods into China instead of doing the usual exporting. Whilst I have been able to generate enough money to get by I have come to the realization that I will never be able to grow the business beyond a certain point without a large amount of upfront investment in order to comply with the large amounts of regulation here. The amount of money required is something I am just not willing to do at this time.
In the past I was never interested in exporting back to the UK for the simple reason I am located in China and so I did not see how it would be possible for me to actually sell the products I had manufactured or bought. However, I came across other online blogs talking about Amazon FBA and how Amazon can handle all of the logistics for you! So I researched as much as I could and my first ever product will be fruit infuser water bottles. I am not looking for huge success first time around, this is more of a guinea pig and hopefully, if successful, I will be able to expand quickly into other products in the health and fitness niche.
This blog will hopefully cover the mainly ups and also downs involved with running my business. I will also include general tips and articles to help those starting out. Please don’t take my advice as gospel as I am just starting out and learning as I go!
