•Did you go to college?
Bobby Halverson: Yes, I went to Grand Canyon University and dropped out after one year at 19 years old.
•What motivated you to be an entrepreneur?

•What made you get into Shopify Dropshipping?
Bobby Halverson: My first entrepreneurial venture was actually a Network Marketing Company and from there I went into Affiliate Marketing. Through networking, I was introduced to Shopify Dropshipping and I found massive success up front and have been building my brand for about 3 years around it.
•What’s your three best dropshipping tips?
- Don’t create the “wheel”, just jump on it. Many people try to find a product before it’s trending, which there is nothing wrong with that, but if you’re a beginner just find something already selling and duplicate it and make it better.
- Find someone to learn it from. You will either spend the money not knowing what you’re doing or spend it paying someone to learn the right way!
- Find a product that people can build an emotional attachment too. That is the easiest way to make money as a beginner in the space.
