How to Create a Product Fulfillment Business with Michelle McCullough (Episode #16)
So forgive me! This is one of my first video interviews that we had ever completed.
Michelle McCullough is a proven speak and published writer, in addition to being an awesome entrepreneur.
If she had to start over she'd find companies with lots of different products, rebrand them, and sell products that someone others have made.
If it was a business that she started with her daughter, it would be with her jewelry.
If it was an idea that she ran with her son it would relate to Pokémon.
She loves win-win social entrepreneurship ideas that help entrepreneurs in other countries, in 3rd world countries, and help grow their companies.
