Some special e-commerce experience that prepared you for amazon necessarily. So. Ankit. What was your initial motivation? And let me just ask you that first. Like. What were you doing before you started selling on amazon? And then why did you start selling on amazon? Ankit: yeah. So before i was a medical professional. I’m an x-ray technologist. And then. I went to school for mri technologist. And then my biggest motivation is i always want to be a businessman ever since i was a little. I wanted to have a steel company and steel king and things like that. But. I was a medical technologist and i was making a good close to six figure income yearly. But i was very good at what i used to do. And i believe in myself.
So i have changed a lot of systems in the hospitals. And then when in effects countrywide. All the hospitals. Sister hospital there. But i never got the promotion. I never got to recognize all the hard work. It’s my work. I do. My boss gets the credit for it. Right. And then whenever i can get a vacation. They denied it. So i got pissed off. I said. You know what? This is not for me. If i can do this much good in myself. While i’m in hospital and i have for my whole life. I haven’t done. Being an asian parents. I haven’t always done something that someone else wanted.
Something That My Parents
They want me to go become a healthcare professional. Which Azerbaijan email list i did. So. Buy a house. Buy a car. Things like that. So. I did everything. What everybody else wanted to do. And i was quite successful at it. But i never did anything that i wanted to do and my boss drive me crazy. And i said. You know what? I’m just going to have to trust myself. I’m going to take an action. And that was my motivation. And i started taking an action and i just had my first daughter was born and i said. You know what. Go out of business with her name. And i wanted to get a financial freedom because i hate going nine to five.
I hate being on call. I hate going to work on the weekend. My friends wanted to go out and i said. No. I got i’m on call. I can’t go. So. That was my motivation. Bradley sutton: i love it. I love it. And what about you. Huy? What made you say. You know what. I need to start selling online regardless if amazon or off amazon. But what motivated you? Huy: i mean. To be honest. I’ve had about 15 different– we’ll call them jobs or different career opportunities in all different industries. Similar to ankit.
My Parents Wanted
Me to become a doctor or a professional or something like that. But obviously. Didn’t work out that way. So i went into. I was actually– bradley sutton: i think all of us who have come from asian backgrounds. I think a lot of our parents all wanted us to be doctors and lawyers. Huy: i think it’s the immigrant mentality. Right? I mean. You come here and you uproot your entire life and you come here. And my parents were refugees from the vietnam war. So they didn’t really have a choice. I mean. They were given an opportunity to come here. And so i think that was some added pressure into.
We want our children to be successful. And what was the meaning of success here in the us was become a well-respected professional. And so. I was born here and growing up. I think there was a lot of different opportunities out there and not everyone was becoming a doctor or a lawyer. And i grew up in an area where a lot of– it’s a smaller. A smaller city at the time when i was growing up. So then the suburbs that people had different aspirations. Right. So. I mean. But before i did amazon i might be a little bit different than a lot of other people. I’ve been selling on ebay 20 years or so.
