China Wholesale Trader

Early to Riser Raymond A. writes in with two questions we often get about our China Wholesale Trader program. So I thought we’d kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, and answer them here.

Raymond almost purchased the Trader program, which helps individual entrepreneurs start an import-export business, about a year ago. But then he bumped into a lawyer at a party who warned him about a ton of red tape involved in the business.

Raymond wants to know if this guy is right. Plus, he’s wondering whether the program has been updated since he first saw it last year.

I reviewed the “new” China Wholesale Trader myself, so I know it has gone through a lot of changes recently.

The biggest change? The program’s creator, Marc Charles, has developed an online community and interactive forum that he moderates personally. “It’s a place where likeminded entrepreneurs can ‘hang out’ to exchange ideas, resources, contacts, and stories (bad and good),” says Marc.

In addition to the interactive forum, Marc has put together several new special reports or “cheat sheets” to help members leverage this business to its fullest. And, of course, all the manuals and guides have been updated for 2010.

As far as red tape, special licenses, and all that… Marc designed the program to avoid those hassles. And, he says, “You can meet people in the China Wholesale Trader interactive forum who would refute the lawyer’s claims. I’ve closed deals and imported products without any red tape whatsoever, or licenses.”

This means an entrepreneur can begin working on deals almost immediately without boatloads of paperwork, agreements, or contracts. In fact, says Marc, you can purchase and import small quantities of products from Chinese manufacturers in just a few minutes on websites like AliExpress.

Marc tells me some rules do come into play with some foods, chemicals, and hazardous materials. And I actually feel safe knowing that those products require special procedures and approvals.

But the bottom line is that you do not need a license to buy and import the vast majority of products from China. And you can get started in this business literally in minutes… and with as little as $50 in start-up cash.

Take Tom Gentry. A few weeks after he joined the China Wholesale Trader, he had completed three deals involving selling imported products online. And, he says, “They were as easy as you described.” Tom is just one of thousands of people who have used this same business model to profit.

The China Wholesale Trader program is the absolute best one on the market (or Internet) for helping entrepreneurs import and export products profitably.

The program comes with a 100% money-back guarantee too. So there’s no risk.

| Impressive Gains for Liberty Street League Members |

Followers of Christian Hill’s “World’s Least Expensive Investment Portfolio” (published each month in the Liberty Street League’s premium wealth building newsletter) have seen a pair of his picks take off recently.

Members who invested in mining company Riverside Resources are currently sitting on a 77% gain in only five months. Exceptional results from recent gold exploration is the reason for the increase.

Another strong performer in the portfolio is OmniVision Technologies, showing Liberty Street League investors a current gain of 45%. The company produces digital image solutions (for use in cell phones, tablet PCs like the iPad, and other devices), and is seeing strong demand for its products with technology advancements.

Each month, Christian adds another pick to the World’s Least Expensive Investment Portfolio. What makes it different from other portfolios out there? Christian never recommends investing more than $100 or so in one company. And investing in the total portfolio will only set you back about $800.

Sure, not all the picks will be big winners. But Christian focuses on small companies that have the potential to go big — really big. And if you get in “on the ground floor,” you can win big too. It’s kind of like swinging for the fences.

So if you don’t have a lot of money to invest… or you want to set aside some of your investment money for “fun”… check out Christian’s column in the Liberty Street League newsletter.

| Talking Trash About Customers |

“If I was you, I would’ve kicked her out.”

“I would’ve smacked her.”

“And her husband… what a @*&#%. ‘Now you’re sure this is compatible?’ I couldn’t take it.”

Several employees of a local cell phone store were blowing off steam about a “difficult” customer. But they weren’t doing it after hours at a local bar.

They were standing right in front of me while one of them was ringing up my purchase. And there were about 10 other customers within hearing distance. I was tempted to just leave. (Why were they griping instead of paying attention to me, for one?)

If you run a business that interacts with customers, clients, business partners, vendors, etc. (I think that about covers all businesses, including those online), you must have a zero-tolerance policy against trash talking by employees. You can’t control what they say to friends and family. But they must put on a public face while at work. No gossiping, no complaints… nothing negative about anyone at any time.

Make badmouthing customers a fireable offense. Let your employees know you’ve established this zero-tolerance policy. Give your managers the authority to enforce it, and let them know they will be held accountable if problems persist.

If you don’t control your company’s image in this way, it will affect your bottom line. You won’t only lose the occasional customer who feels directly insulted… others will melt away when they see how you allow your employees to treat their fellow customers.

| Do I Have a Dog? |

For months, you’ve been following the adventures of George, Laura Rodini’s Yorkshire Terrier. And several Early to Risers have written in asking if I have a
dog too. I actually have two, a seven-year-old lab mix, Sunny, and a one-year-old silver and grey standard poodle, Jester. (So named by my four-year-old son because he is just such a goofy dog.)

One of Jester’s favorite activities is “swallowing air” from our leaf blower. (Did I mention that he’s goofy?). I’ll leave you this week with an image of that.
