Success Story: eBay Dropshipping with Aidan Au
I absolutely love hearing the success of others, especially people who I've helped point in the right direction. A few months ago I had David Vu on my podcast as a guest because I wanted to pick his brain about dropshipping on eBay. He had a course on it that I was skeptical of at first because price arbitrage and dropshipping on eBay has a terrible reputation as something that is gimmicky and doesn't work.
But after speaking with David for an hour over the phone and having him openly and honestly answering all of the tough questions I had prepared, not only did I pay for and sign up for his course myself, I also started recommending it to my friends, readers and podcast listeners. Aidan Au was one of those people who followed my recommendation and this is his success story.
Every week I interview a different location independent entrepreneur on my show the Travel Like a Boss Podcast. Almost every single week enough value is squeezed out of the guest, that listeners could pretty much just replicate their success.
The reason why I love doing these interviews is because I get to find out first hand what is actually working, and what people's secrets to success are. My goal is to share what works, and to build an army of digital nomads who are all making enough money to be location independent.
Out of the 20,000 downloads I normally get per month, I'm curious how many people actually take action as I obviously don't hear from them all. The good thing is, once in awhile I do. This was the first message I got from Aidan almost two months ago after I first interviewed David a few weeks prior.
Two Month Update:
It wasn't until a few days ago that I realized how well Aidan is actually doing. I've been so busy doing my own thing, and I hear from so many people that unless someone reaches out to let me know what's going on, I kind of just assume people have either gotten busy with life, their career, the holidays or just given up.
I was super happy to hear from David that Aidan was doing well, so I logged into the course to see the member's discussions and here's what I found:
Takeaways and Lessons:
Right away I knew he was legit as I could actually see his completed listings. But even better than that, I got access to the private member discussions that showed me that he was actually replying and personally helping his members.

One thing that really impressed me about Aidan is the fact that he not only puts in the work to be successful himself, he also takes the time to give back and help others succeed. I think it's the abundance mindset that has helped him become as successful as he is today, and will help him really get to the next level in the future.
What's really cool about David is the fact that he's inviting his students over for potlucks just so they can get to know each other, hang out and meet one another. I haven't met David yet, but when he heard I was going back to the U.S. for the holidays, he offered me one of his AirBnB listings to stay at for free while I'm in Southern California.
It's this abundance and value giving mindset that has made him as success as he is today and will make him a millionaire by 2020. I think the reason why David and I will really get along when we meet in person is because he's also a big believer in the same concepts that I and people I respect follow:
Become successful yourself -> Share or Teach what works -> Become even more successful yourself
Helping Others Succeed:
What's even more awesome is seeing how many other students in his course are posting screen shots on their dashboards showing their success. I really think that by sharing his info, he's going to get his students to their first few hundred or thousand in profit per month, then be able to create even higher end programs or courses to take their success as well as his own empire to the next level.
Here's a photo of David and a group of his students at his most recent meetup in Dallas, TX. He's a big reason why I've opened up my schedule to meet up with listeners of the podcast as well as my own course students during this trip back home. So if you live near Austin, Los Angeles, or San Francisco make sure you rsvp in the Travel Like a Boss Army facebook group here.
Best of luck to everyone with your journeys. I really think David's course is one of the best, if not the best first steps into online business, as it meets all of my criteria:
- Can be done remotely (location independently)
- No inventory/Low Startup cost
- No experience necessary (his course shows it all step by step)
- Potential to become semi-passive (with the help of a VA)
- Running your business teaches other web skills and marketing.
- Works for people of all countries, not just Americans.
