Check out this amazing story from Raymond and Daisy… They got their first BIG t-shirt order the other day and I see BIG things happening for them. Like Raymond and Daisy, you to can have success with your own t-shirt business, but you MUST take some type of action to set things in motion.
“IF THIS KEEPS UP, I MAY ACTUALLY HAVE TO PAY TAXES AS A BUSINESS THIS YEAR…”
“I wanted to drop you a note and say thanks. I signed up for your [t-shirt business] course late last year. It took me a little while to get everything together, but as I write this I am finishing up on an order for $850!!!
My wife and I live in a RV full-time and have been looking for something to supplement our income once we retire. We want to travel around the country visiting all the areas that we have heard of but never seemed to have the time to visit. I am retired military and found out late last year that I will be loosing my job due to office closure in April of this year. I will be 60 this year. Still a little too early to fully retire.
With some time to look around, I found your website and course and took a chance. We both reviewed all of the videos and being a previous entrepreneur I sat down and looked at the numbers. I also looked into what niche I felt I would like to work on and researched it to death 🙂 We set up our company and purchased some equipment on eBay. An inexpensive printer and heat press for about $750 total. Created some t-shirts for ourselves and started letting our friends and family know we started a new business. Other than business cards and rack cards we haven’t spent any money on marketing yet.
Our niche is camping and to be honest, it hasn’t done anything yet, BUT, word of mouth has brought us a lot of small orders from businesses in our area.
Clubs, small businesses and nonprofit organizations have been contacting me almost weekly about t shirts, cups, mugs, photo tiles, even Build-A-Bear have placed orders. This last week, one of our friends who works for a nonprofit, contacted us and asked if we could do some t-shirts for a fund raiser they were going to run. Gave them a discounted price (wholesale) and got the order. We will clear almost $500 on the $850 order. If this keeps up, I may actually have to pay taxes as a business this year 🙂
Your videos and handouts helped to get us over the hump with learning and putting our minds at ease about whether or not we could do this. It really is a business that anyone can do. As I said in the beginning, we live full time in a RV and have managed to put aside a small office (8×10) that we have our work desk, equipment and supplies in.
We do not stock any shirts or other supplies except ink and transfer papers. All orders are fulfilled with our suppliers shipping same day and we only order what we need plus a couple extra just in case. We found that JiffyShirts.com gave us the best prices based on what our requirements were. I could get some better prices if I wanted to do case lots, but for us storage is a major problem. So paying a little more without the storage hassle works best and we are still competitive.
Thank you so much for your training and information. I hope someday to be able to help others as you have helped us.”
