I have been a business owner for over 25 years but can say for the first time; “I own my business it doesn’t own me.” I have traded in my Brick and Mortar for a Click and Order. This gives me financial and time freedom. My business operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week with no employees. I wake up when I am done sleeping and am able to work anywhere in the world there is a WiFi connection.

My husband and I owned and operated and Italian restaurant business when we started dabbling in the Internet 20 years ago. We realized very quickly our hobby was outpacing our full time income. We made the decision to sell the restaurant and concentrate 100% on our thriving Internet business.
Life holds so many Possibilities and potential you just need to open your eyes sometimes.
When we started on the Internet there was no how to books, no videos, and no webinars on how to build an Internet business. Through trial and error we persevered. Like any marketing system new technology emerges as a better way to distributing products to the end consumer. In order to stay ahead of these curves you must be willing to make changes and advancements to your business. In November 2009 we did just that. We realized a shift was taking place online large stores we positioning themselves to dominate smaller sites. We needed to find a way to compete and that is why we partnered with Conquer Entertainment powered by SHOP.com. We are able to offer a preloaded website that combines drop shipping and Affiliate marketing to anyone looking to get started with an online business. This gives us the ability to create residual leveraged income.
Our specialty is to help musicians monetize music, merchandise and events all while helping them capitalize on their brand through lifestyle marketing. This is all possible because we are able to convert fans to customers do to the utilization of social media.
We have achieved many accomplishments with our business. There are two that stand out, being recognized as “Shop Consultant of the year 2011” & “Top Retailer 2012 and 2013” by the Corporate team.
