Since I was 16 years old, I've searched the internet in hopes of finding a breakthrough idea that can become my dream career. I remember reading a blog about how people make money talking about anything they have a passion for. I also read about creating Shopify stores with various niches to choose from. It all sounded awesome and since then I've wanted to create a successful online business. A little after I turned 20 years old, I decided to dropout of college to pursue my dream business. I got a job and raised money to start my online Shopify store, which has cost me a lot of money. Though it is not succeeding, it has taught me a lot about online businesses. I know my mistakes now and I now know how to succeed online (I will talk more about my actual online successes in future stories, this one is more about what to avoid).
