Ecommerce Empire Builders Review: A 15-Year-Old’s Journey to Ecommerce Success

Empire builders, have you been wondering how to take your ecommerce dropshipping business to the next level? Well, the secret to success all stems from having the right mindset. While he’s only walked this Earth for the past 15 years, Tennessee Cox has already developed the mentality you need to succeed in the ecommerce industry. At just 15 years of age, Tennessee has already become one of our 50k a month students at Ecommerce Empire Builders, and I recently spoke with him during an Ecommerce Empire Builders review. 

His mindset is incredible. No matter where you are in your own Clickfunnels dropshipping endeavors, you can learn something from this kid. I have been blown away by him and his story, and I think you will be, too. Check out everything Tennessee had to share about his ecommerce journey below. 

Getting Started in Ecommerce Dropshipping 

When I sat down with Tennessee, I asked him how he started his ecommerce dropshipping journey. Tennessee’s story is definitely not traditional. He told me that he actually started his first ecommerce store during the summer between his sixth and seventh grade school years. 

Tennessee has always had an appreciation for the finer things in life. In middle school, he wanted the designer sneakers and backpacks his friends had. Like many kids his age experience, his parents told him if he wanted those things, he had to get a job and pay for them himself. So Tennessee started mowing lawns around his neighborhood for a little extra cash. He soon came to learn that manual labor was not for him. 

To keep his funds up without having to do manual labor, Tennessee started searching YouTube for “how to make money online” videos. One of the first videos he found was about Amazon FBA. From that video, he started his first Shopify store for under $100. Tennessee actually had some success with his first ecommerce attempt. With his first store, he made a sale on the first day. He set up his shipping wrong, so he didn’t actually make any money on the sale. However, he was still stoked to get his first sale. 

Tennessee ran his first store for about six months and then tried to sell it. Shopify contacted him and told him he couldn’t sell it. They also told him that he actually couldn’t even have a Shopify store because he was only 14 years old. After this little hiccup, Tennessee decided to take a break from dropshipping altogether.    

Finding Ecommerce Empire Builders

During his hiatus from Shopify dropshipping, Tennessee decided he would try to make money as a social media marketer. He started reading tons of marketing books and took some online marketing courses as well. His go-to book during this time was Unscripted by MJ DeMarco. Tennessee soon realized that he could use his newly acquired marketing knowledge to create a profitable ecommerce dropshipping business. 

During his marketing studies, Tennessee had learned about Clickfunnels dropshipping. He decided to search Clickfunnels dropshipping on YouTube, and the first channel to pop up was Ecommerce Empire Builders. Tennessee told me in this Ecommerce Empire Builders review  that finding our YouTube channel was a game-changer for him. He was hooked and watched every video on the channel that he could within a matter of weeks.  

After watching our YouTube videos, Tennessee set up his own Clickfunnels account. He started watching our Six-Figure Sundays religiously. During our Six-Figure Sundays, we give away $25 each week. Tennessee won on multiple occasions. Then, he used the money he won to fund his Facebook ads and pay for his Clickfunnels bill. He started scaling his funnel and was generating around $2,800 a day. 

After consuming everything he could on our YouTube channel, Tennessee decided to take the plunge and become a member of the Ecommerce Empire Academy and the Empire Builder Inner Circle. Then, Tennessee launched a new funnel and was soon generating $50,000 a month. Now his focus is on building a prominent brand within his niche.  

Tennessee’s business accomplishments within the ecommerce industry are extraordinary, but what really impresses me about this kid is his mindset. 

Developing a Powerful Mindset

Tennessee started his ecommerce endeavors when he was in middle school. He stayed in the traditional school setting until the end of his ninth-grade year. Before the start of his sophomore year of high school, Tennessee convinced his parents to let him try a home school program. That would give him more time to focus on expanding his ecommerce dropshipping ventures. 

I don’t know what you were doing at 15, but I certainly wasn’t thinking like this.

I asked Tennessee what his parents’ initial reactions were to his desire to stop going to school to focus on growing a business. Tennessee told me that, at first, his parents worried that he would miss out on the social aspect of traditional schooling. However, Tennessee told his parents that it was actually his social life at school that was really distracting him from achieving more with his ecommerce business. 

Tennessee told his parents he wanted to surround himself with like-minded individuals that would push him to achieve more in the business industry. This is undoubtedly a powerful perspective for any 15 years old to grasp and then implement into their own life. 

I asked Tennessee what his advice would be for those looking to get into the ecommerce dropshipping industry. His first piece of advice is to disregard what the naysayers have to say. Instead, surround yourself with like-minded individuals that are passionate about their own business endeavors.

At the young age of 15, Tennessee has already come to realize that when you’re passionate about your work, it’s no longer really work at all. This is definitely a powerful mindset for a 15-year-old to have. Each of us, regardless of age, can implement this way of thinking into our own lives, too.  Having the right mindset is a crucial element of success, and you can read more about what Favour Johnson, another dropshipper, has to say about mindset in his Ecommerce Empire Builders review.

Unbiased Ecommerce Empire Academy Review 2020

Empire builders, have you been wondering what benefits you could gain from joining our growing Ecommerce Empire Academy? Well, I sat down with one of our Ecommerce Empire Academy students and asked him for his candid opinion of the program: both an honest Peter Pru review to assess how my experience has helped his business strategies and an Ecommerce Empire Academy review to see how our overall program helped him drive growth. Check out everything he had to say in an honest Ecommerce Empire Builders review. 

What Does a Real Ecommerce Empire Academy Student Have to Say? 

I sat down with Ecommerce Empire Academy student, Favour Johnson, to get an honest Ecommerce Empire Academy review. Favour actually found out about our program when he stumbled across one of my Peter Pru — Ecommerce Empire Builders YouTube videos. Favour had been trying to make it on his own in the ecommerce industry, but unfortunately, he wasn’t having much luck. After seemingly getting nowhere with his efforts, Favour decided to take the plunge and become an official Ecommerce Empire Academy student. 

Favour’s experience is one I see with many of our Academy students. The ecommerce industry and business, in general, is a cycle of peaks and valleys. What discourages most people from continuing their pursuits with ecommerce is their inability to stick with it through those ups and downs. Favour and many other students have been able to overcome these hurdles by becoming official Ecommerce Empire Builders. Our program and mentorship equip aspiring ecommerce entrepreneurs with the right mindset, tools, and skills to make it through the highs and lows of business. 

How Can You Handle Highs and Lows in Your Business?

Favour’s number one piece of advice for other Ecommerce Empire Academy students and beginner ecommerce entrepreneurs is to, “Believe in the process and journey.” Favour shared with me that he struggled at the beginning of his ecommerce endeavors because he did not have faith in his abilities or the overall ecommerce process. When Favour adopted a new positive mindset and started acting the part, his ads began performing better, and his funnel started to generate more revenue. 

Favour also noted that the Ecommerce Empire Academy helped him stop making emotionally-based decisions in his business. He used to go through a cycle of making ad sets and then killing them before he had a chance to collect data because he got too nervous and emotionally invested in the process. Making emotionally based decisions will almost always negatively impact your ecommerce endeavors. It’s easier said than done, but you have to separate your emotions from the business. Training yourself to make data-based decisions is your key to success in business. 

What Is Favour’s Recipe for Success?

During this Ecommerce Empire Academy review, Favour let us in on what his recipe for success has been in the ecommerce industry. After becoming an Academy student, Favour ditched the Shopify platform and opted to utilize Clickfunnels instead.

Favour started selling one product and came to understand that you have to focus on presenting customers with a unique offer, not necessarily a unique product. Every Ecommerce Empire Academy student begins to learn that it’s all about presenting the customers with an irresistible offer in your funnel. 

Mastering Facebook ads have been another key to Favour’s success in ecommerce. Favour’s strategy with his Facebook ads is to present quick, quality video ads to potential customers. He creates his ads to have a nice overlay photo on the video that grabs a prospective customer’s attention. Then he presents a quick video that highlights the product. 

After creating these quality video ads, Favour advises beginners to simply let the ads run their course and collect the data. You have to give Facebook enough time to optimize the algorithms so your ads can reach the prime audience. If you get emotionally invested or nervous and pull the ad too soon, all your data goes out the window. Even worse, you don’t get to learn how to make your ads more efficient. 

Create Rules So Data Drives Your Decisions

After Favour has a successful ad and collects enough data, he scales the ad to reach a bigger audience. Favour’s advice to beginners in the ad scaling process is to have a base foundation of rules for running ads. This can help you avoid shelling out more and more money on an ad that doesn’t yield results. This goes back to being data-driven rather than emotionally driven. 

In Favour’s rules, if he doesn’t get an ad click at $3 invested, he pulls the ad. If he doesn’t get an add to cart at $10 invested, he pulls the ad. Finally, if he doesn’t get a purchase at $20 invested, he pulls the ad set. 

This foundation of rules let Favour focus on the data rather than on his emotional ties to the ad set he has created. Understanding the ad process and running successful ad sets ultimately determines the success of all ecommerce entrepreneurs. 

What Should All eCommerce Beginners Know?

At the end of our interview, I asked Favour what his biggest piece of advice is for beginners breaking into the ecommerce industry. What Favour wants all aspiring ecommerce entrepreneurs to know is that “Mindset is key.” Favour had his own series of peaks and valleys he had to work through before he found success in ecommerce. However, joining the Ecommerce Empire Academy helped Favour to adopt the right mentality. It also equipped him with the tools needed to create a successful ecommerce business. 

Favour continually speaks his own success into existence through positive affirmations and encourages everyone to do the same. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will either. The only thing that will keep you from success is yourself. You can’t give up on yourself or the process if you want to be successful. 

I couldn’t agree more with Favour’s advice at the conclusion of his Ecommerce Empire Builders review. At the end of the day, you are the only one who is in control of your success.
