Could Dropshipping Be Your Solution?

This month we are excited to hear a short talk about 'Dropshipping' from a great case study. Fergus runs an online retail business with 5 niche market stores selling Scottish highland dress and personalised gifts. His business is based in Edinburgh, but he lives and works in London, so manages an office, warehouse and staff remotely.

Although he doesn't work a 4 hour week (because he loves his job!), he's built the business to function almost entirely without him if required. His only responsibility at the moment is paying the wages monthly.

After Fergus's short talk, there will be plenty of time for people to get to know each other, free networking, introduce yourself and maybe find someone who can help with your lifestyle goals!

This group will be inspirational and help you take the next step toward your goals.

    Never heard of drop shipping, and since found out it has no relevance to my business, BUT i really enjoyed learning about it, Fergus was very knowledgable and therefore made it an interesting evening! Met some cool people too :)
