One of my first jobs that lead to me being an Entrepreneur was working in the purchasing department for a Entertainment company in London, Ontario, Canada. I got to learn everything there was about being a buyer, and accounting. It wasn’t long afterwards that I decided to take the skills I learned and started to sell on eBay.
eBay was my first real experience in business, dealing with customer service, product sourcing, writing blog posts, content writing, editing photos, and more. I was probably spending about 45 hours a week just on my first eBay store. When I first was on eBay, the first store I had ended up eventually selling over a million products in the first couple years of doing it, my major seller was Homeopathic Remedies. I also sold various other products that were dropshipped from overseas. What got me viral success on eBay was a specific health and beauty product that I ended up getting lucky on.
After I went on to opening various other shops on eBay as well as Amazon. And even later on I would also do Etsy, this was 2009/2010. Back 2004 was the first time I ever started a business, that was Defranco™. Years later in 2010 I incorporated my first international company; Defranco Enterprises™ to oversee the day to day operations of all of my shops and stores and staffing across all the marketplaces I was on, everything I started between 2005-current mostly went under the Defranco Enterprises umbrella.
