After college, Danny floated an e-commerce store and started documenting his experience with it. He also created a Twitter profile in June 2018 to tweet his learnings. While a college graduate's fundamental thought is to take up a job, Danny was keener on his dropshipping venture.
"I knew the internet works, and I wanted to do something similar to what I did when I was 13-15. I thought I've tasted success with it, and if I put my mind to what I do, I'll make it successful. I was confident!"
In those days, Danny spent hours on Twitter seeking feedback on his first advertisement and sought advice on his next step after setting up the e-commerce store. He maintained his connections by updating them about the progress to keep them involved. While his first store was a golf equipment store, later, he transitioned into a gifting store where customers could buy personalized gifts like key chains or anniversary presents.
"I used to check out the best selling items on AliExpress or look at different advertisements on Facebook to understand what worked."
Both the dropshipping ventures were successful from Danny's perspective — he moved to San Diego, got to work with the guy who brought him into dropshipping and learned a great deal. After working in dropshipping for a couple of months, his heart wasn't really in it as it felt like he was doing it only for money. So, after dropshipping, he moved on to fitness, and got a personal training certification and was contemplating whether he should put his services out there — but COVID hit, and the world went into a lockdown.
"I told myself there won't be any personal training jobs and wasn't sure if I wanted to take that route. Instead, I decided to create content as I used to when I was 13."
