Do you think you are an Entrepreneur in Heart and Mind? 

Ask yourself after reading this short paragraph.


  • Entrepreneurs like to take a risk.
  • They like to innovate something new, a new product or service.
  • They want to make money not only by hard-working but by adding taking risks.
  • They love to help others to grow. 


Consider, small businesses those you see. And, some of those become bigger and we know as a prominent Brand. Shopify, isn't it one of these?

The good news is, most of the businesses didn't become famous on their first days. It took time, and remember, started from zero or small.

Are you feeling you are one of them? Willing to learn, take the risk to fail but, consistent to learn and grow.

Fortunately, Shopify has all kinds of examples. You can learn every step to grow. Luckily, these all are free, 24 hours online round the years.

What else do you need?


Support? Suggestion? Also, available for you. You can seek help from Shopify Partners, Shopify Experts. Some may cost you a small fee.

Shopify forums and Social Media accounts also there if you need to ask and learn.

I have a long experience of learning. Also, stories of continuous failing. It's life. A lot of things we can't change then we change to something we don't want to be. From my experience, I can say, by starting your entrepreneurial journey with Shopify, will help you learn and grow.

I started learning computer basic and programming in 1985 in my high school life. Also, music besides academic education. And, in the run of life, it stopped, again start and again stopped. You can say I discovered again in me that I can't stay far from computer literacy.

And, I found Shopify. That was 31st night 2018 and the first store I started creation on 1st January 2019. I am learning. and, also I welcome to join me.

Start learning. Learn and earn. Only then you can help others those needs. Eighter money or knowledge, or both.

However, You will see Start Your Business Journey With Shopify at the end of the page unless changed with a new one. You can begin here as well.

To start a business can be easy or can be easy depends on where, how and what business you want to do. A lot of things come up to do. Money, energy, manpower, investment, bookkeeping, marketing, and inventory.

That is, buying and stocking products, also one or more warehouse.

From many business models, you can choose the best suits for you. I've given some ideas above. You can research these on any search engine. Or, you can study the Shopify website. So, you concentrate and figure out. Then look from other sources.

Shopify is built to create new entrepreneurs and grow together. You may take advantage of it. It's a strong eCommerce platform beside many others, for example, WooCommerce, Bigcommerce, Ecwid and many more.

It is so real, going to reach 1 million entrepreneurs on the Shopify platform, which means, Shopify is helping grow this large quantify of business owners worldwide.

You can be one of the most famous entrepreneurs and, I hope, you will create new opportunities for others. Also, you will create new jobs for many people working with you. Digital Nomads can be part of your business workforce.
