    How To Use Failures to Build a Successful Business

    How To Use Failures to Build a Successful Business

    You've probably heard the saying, "If at first, you don't succeed, try, try again."
    Well, William Edward Hickson wasn't talking about e-commerce or drop-shipping when he coined that expression, but it definitely still applies.
    As you'll hear in this week's episode of Start Yours, with each experience, or in this case, with each fail, your knowledge and understanding of what works and what doesn't work grows and grows each time.
    Our guest is Ahmed Hadi, who we have featured on the oberlo.com blog recently, joined us from his native Finland to explain how he built a successful online business from the rubble of a handful of unsuccessful ones.
    What's great about this chat is hearing Ahmed talk about the highs and the lows, the profits and the losses that come from launching new ventures. Wherever you may be at on your business or side-hustle journey, we know you'll be inspired by Ahmed's story.
    As always, if you enjoy the show, tell someone who you think might find it valuable. And if you have a question or a topic that you'd like us to cover, be sure to get in touch by shooting us a note at podcast@oberlo.com.

    Survival Mode - Launching a Side-Hustle During A Life and World Crisis

    In this week's episode of Start Yours we bring you an amazing story of a couple who used their creativity and strength to launch two print on demand side-hustles in the hight of the COVID pandemic and also during an incredibly challenging time in their personal lives.
    Laura and Albert have 3 kids and 11 animals. In early 2020, just before the lockdown was declared, massage therapist Laura suffered a severe seizure, fell and broke her neck and back and had to be hospitalized. The family received a $30,000 medical bill. As well as being the sole carer for Laura and the kids, during the crisis, Albert also lost his job. They were at breaking point but instead of giving up, Albert decided that this was the opportune time to put his research and skills to the test and launch their first print on demand Shopify store.
    This is an incredible story of hustle and teamwork. Albert and Laura are optimistic and driven and share many great tips for launching a side-hustle and working and how to stay motivated during tough times.
