Hey guys just wrote this post:
Would love to hear any thoughts or feedback.
I’ve been asking myself a lot of those bigger questions the last several months.
What am I here on this planet for? What if I didn’t need any money? What can I do to make this world a better place?
One of the things that I keep coming back to is that I’d love to help people make a living. So many people in the country are struggling to make ends meet. The economy is doing terribly in many places, but the eCommerce industry is thriving.
What if I could recruit people from underprivileged backgrounds (inner city youth, single moms, people in developing countries, etc.) to get a job in eCommerce?
What if I could help 10,000 people get a good job?
I think that would be pretty awesome.
10,000 is just an arbitrarily and audaciously high number to reach for. I’d be pumped to be able to create 10 jobs. But this gives me something bigger than myself to shoot for.
I’m not exactly sure what it’s going to look like, but I’m looking into identifying a niche service in the eCommerce industry that I can offer.
I want to offer a super high quality niche service, while also providing top notch training to smart, motivated people who otherwise might not have awesome job prospects.
As they say over at Andela:
Genius is evenly distributed; opportunity is not
Andela is an amazing company and part of the inspiration for this idea. They recruit people out of Lagos, Nigeria and train them as software devs.
Not exactly sure which niche service I’m targeting, but few options I’m looking at:
Content marketing / link building / link auditing
I’m going to be podcasting my progress. If you have any thoughts or feedback, let me know!
