1. Being Your Own Boss

When starting a business for the first time, most people don't know where to start.

I'll teach you how to set goals and plan out a strategy for your t-shirt company.

I'll also show you how to be most productive so you can find the time to build a business while working and taking care of your family.

  • Do You Have What it Takes?
  • Setting Short & Long Term Goals
  • How to Be Most Productive
  • Working With Friends & Family

2. Birthing Your T-shirt Design Ideas Into Reality

If you don't at least have your designs or ideas on paper, you have no ideas. You can't keep it in your head.

We'll show you how to start pulling this stuff out of your head and start building a business around it. 

Using my techniques, you'll have a real business in no time

  • Making Sense of Your T-shirt Ideas
  • What Makes a Good or Bad Design
  • Coming Up With a Collection
  • Defining Your Brand
  • Design it Yourself or Hire a Designer
  • Getting Mock-ups or Professional Photos
  • Methods for Printing Your Shirts
  • Selling Your Own T-shirt Transfers
  • Branding With Your Own T-shirt Tags
  • Trademark & Copyrights

3. Market Research

Not everyone will buy your shirts; but coming up with a plan will help you identify and find those who will buy your shirts over and over again.

Also, knowing who your competitors are gives you an advantage into tapping into the marketplace to fill a market you never knew existed. 

In order to win big, you must get in the game. We'll show you how to break into the market and make a splash!

  • Getting to Know Your Potential Customers
  • Getting to Know Your Competition

  • Identify Opportunities & Threats
  • Pricing Your T-shirts

4. Business Essentials

I'll show you how to setup a legitimate business operation complete with a corporation or LLC, and how to open up business checking accounts.

Corporations protect you from being personally liable in the event something goes wrong.

In this space, you'll need a Sales Tax ID # provided by your State. This allows you to buy your products at wholesale (t-shirts, caps, bags, etc.)

  • Coming Up With Your Business Name
  • Getting Your Business License & Permits
  • Establishing Your LLC / Corporation
  • Getting a Sales Tax ID to Buy Wholesale
  • Establishing Your Business Checking Account

5. Getting Your T-shirt Business On the Internet

It used to cost thousands of dollars to get a website online; but not anymore.

  • Adding Sizing Charts to Your Website
  • Setting Up Shipping Options

You can have the best t-shirt designs in the world, but if no one knows about them, sales won't take place.

We cover the various options available to help you get exposure for your t-shirt line!

The secret to marketing is being in multiple places and not relying on one source for business.

Going offline to get customers is less competitive and usually much cheaper than the competitive and overcrowded 'online marketing space'.

Tag along and learn a variety of ways to get your business in front of your ideal prospects.

  • Executing OFFLINE Marketing Campaigns
  • Using Direct Mail (SRDS)
  • Marketing in Print Publications
  • Local & National Event & Tradeshows

  • Identifying a Target
  • Establishing Terms
  • Creating Line Sheets to Get Into Stores
  • Sending Out Sample Packages

I've tried all of the various suppliers and vendors; most suck!

  • Hiring and Using Virtual Assistants
  • Getting Instant Traffic From Google, Bing, Yahoo

Cartess Ross  T-shirt Riches

I run a few successful online businesses, including TshirtRiches, Move Abroad and Thrive, and a few other t-shirt websites.

Over the last 20-years, I've launched and created a bunch of new products, courses and t-shirt businesses. Some were successful, while others were a total fail!

I've learned what works and what don't. One advantage I was the feedback from thousands of students who went through my t-shirt training course... I get to see what's working now and what ain't. 

I can help you determine a strategy and help you figure out if your t-shirt business will be a viable one. You don't have to figure this out on your own. I've helped hundreds start instantly from scratch!

I'm here to help you win BIG–let's get started!

Here’s what people are saying about the course

If this keeps up, I may actually have to pay taxes as a business this year...

Our friends who works for a nonprofit contacted us and asked if we could do some t-shirts for a fundraiser they were going to run.

We gave them a discounted price 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..

TshirtRiches Students

We got our first 100 shirt order for the 'Motorcycle Run for Cancer Foundation'...

Just wanted to say thank you for all of the information you have provided us through your videos for the t-shirt business.

We have really enjoyed our membership and started our company in April. We of course still need to work on legalizing it, but we started anyways.

We got our first 100 shirt order for the Motorcycle Run for Cancer Foundation. Thanks again for everything! This was exactly what we needed to help us get started.”

Q&A About the Course



Your training will be immediately released to you within our private, members-only website after you become a member. Your login details are sent to your e-mail (if you don't see it, don't panic, check your spam folder, or shoot us an e-mail and we'll manually reset your account).


Our program includes dynamic support structures to keep you on track every step of the way. Under each training section, you'll have the opportunity to comment and get responses to your questions. 

If you have technical issues, or if you're simply having a challenge and you need help, simply e-mail us the contact details listed in the members area of the website.


It's yours indefinitely. Once you become a member, you can access the content here anytime. We still have members accessing our site from 11 years ago.


That depends on you. I'm the first to say that this is NOT a get rich quick type of program. Building a business takes time and you get out exactly what you put in. My goal is to help you build out a plan so you can build out a real business within your first year. Work the plan and you can be successful. There are no short-cuts. If you're looking for the secret that'll give you quick riches, then this program is NOT for you.


I totally stand behind the quality of my course. Others that have purchased this program have used the information to build highly successful t-shirt companies. So I know it works. Join our program -- and this part is important -- only join if you intend to follow through and do the work.

Don't purchase and just consume information. It's a program that requires action from you. If you ask for a refund, you must show me your completed work. I require this because this is NOT a program for lazy people.

If you're lazy, and you're looking for a quick-overnight solution, and don't intend to actually do anything, do not purchase. This course is not for you. But if you're willing to make an honest effort, this course is for you. 

Don't purchase, review, and decide to change your mind because you don't want to do the work. Refunds won't be granted on that basis.

I truly want you to succeed and win BIG. I am your biggest champion rooting for you from the sidelines. My team and I are here to help you succeed. Just believe in yourself and do the work today.


No. This membership is for you only. However, you're more than welcome to login and share with your spouse. Multi logins from multiple I.P. destinations will get you banned.


I'd love the opportunity to work with you... I want you to win. I understand how all this stuff could get overwhelming and you start to doubt yourself. You have access to me and my team through the members portal area.

So when you get stuck, reach out to us and ask questions. That's what your membership is for. Take advantage of that, please!

My Honest Disclaimer:

I'm Cartess Ross, founder of TshirtRiches CORE. This is not a get rich quick scheme. You will have to work and develop discipline to make a t-shirt business work. I've spent years and tens of thousands of dollars to build my t-shirt company; and it was never easy. Most startups won't succeed at this and I don't guarantee your success because I don't know your work ethics. The TshirtRiches CORE training is simply a resource and educational tool. While I want you to win BIG, you must do the work. If you're looking for an easy business to get into, this ain't it; keep on looking.
