Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in e-commerce but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ben Knegendorf, Co-Founder of Dropship Breakthru, located in Hudson, WI, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I'm the co-founder of Dropship Breakthru, where we help you to successfully start your first online business in the next 30 days. Our customers are from all walks of life but share one common aspiration — freedom.

Tell us about yourself

I also sought freedom when I started. I was working full time at a WalMart Distribution Center, driving a forklift all day and truly hating my existence. I knew there must be more and that I was capable of more. Over the next 5 years, I built and sold multiple businesses, including one that we scaled to 8 figures a year in revenue that resulted in a personal seven-figure victory.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Scaling a company 1 million to 11 million in revenue in just two years.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Entrepreneurship is the greatest self-development program in existence. You will run up against your own self-limiting beliefs over and over again. The best entrepreneurs find the source of these BS beliefs and resolve them.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Start.
  2. Start listening to the inner narrator and what they are saying (it's all bullshit) and work on resolving the source of that voice. (it's not yours).
  3. Show up every day.

Where can people find you and your business?
