About Me – Elmeri Palokangas
Thanks for checking by!
Hey, I am Elmeri, a 19-years old boy from cold but beautiful Finland! Thanks for stopping by and reading about me and my entrepreneur story!
I started an eCommerce business over 3 years ago at 16 years old, I had bad English skills and absolutely zero e-commerce experience and I did not even know the term E-commerce. I started by selling trending garden tools on my website. I got 4000 euros by mowing lawns for many of my neighbors, 3000 euros of that I put into e-commerce and failed all. Then I worked in a restaurant in wintertime, put again around 3000 euros into this and again failed all. At this point, I was feeling a little stressed but I always had the vision & trust in my mind that this will work out! Last summer, I again mowed lawns and earned 4000 euros, put it all into e-commerce again, and I found success with it! It was like finding the key to a lock, it just clicked.
In the past year, I have made 150 000$ in sales with my various E-commerce stores. The amount of times I failed to achieve is so big that 99% would have given up.
I have been writing on this blog since last year on topics related to eCommerce, marketing, business, SEO, social media, software, and many more!
This is me at age 17 gaining money to spend on my Ecommerce business, which I ended up failing. It took me one more year to make it profitable.
