I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts lately and by accident I happened to come across Shopify Masters. Obviously its a podcast focused on Shopify however their latest episode was great interview with Shawn Rowland from DronesEtc.com which I wanted to share. Shawn and his co-founder Jon Baird won the “everything else” category of the 4th Shopify Build-A-Business competition and judging by the interview they have been selling a shit load of drones.
Shawn and Jon Baird wanted to create their own lifestyle and be able to take care of their growing families. Motivated by seeing a couple friends achieve entrepreneurial success and Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Work Week, they set out to give it one last shot at starting their own company before falling back to Plan B and getting day jobs. This is a story of how Shawn went from $200K+ in student loan debt and had to re-mortgage his home to turn DronesEtc.com to a $600K/month ecommerce store.
