5 Awesome Free YouTube Dropshipping Courses
Some great information about dropshipping is on YouTube for free.
Just be careful with most of these so-called “gurus”. Like I said before, their only goal is to sell you something (like a course).
I suggest watching these videos below, but if you don’t like what you see or you already know it, then just skip a bit.

No, you will not.
It takes time and hard work before you succeed, I’m sorry if that crushed your dreams, but you need to treat your dropshipping store like a real business in order to succeed!
Also, most of these “gurus” use Shopify, I do too, but you can use any ecommerce platform that you like.
