The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed everything wrong with the typical nine-to-five work structure. Even as many businesses allowed their employees to work from home, many people found it even harder to have a life outside their jobs as the line between their personal and professional lives started to blur. Nowadays, it has become normal for many people to render 14- to 16-hour workdays for days on end.
These are the same conditions that once pushed Ryan Buttigieg to voluntarily exit the rat race to pursue a much more fulfilling life in business.
‘Enough is Enough’
“I was sick and tired of working 14-hour days,” says Ryan. “I knew there was more to life than working that much. I have two daughters and I felt like I was missing out on a lot of time with them.”
Ever since he found success in business, Ryan has never looked back to the employee life. Now he gets to spend all the time he wants with his family and has achieved most of his personal and financial goals to boot. To give back, Ryan Buttigieg now hopes to guide other people in their quest to forget about the rat race and achieve financial freedom as early as they can through e-commerce.
Beyond the Get-Rich-Quick Myths
Recent years have seen e-commerce grow to immense popularity. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has upended the natural order of most businesses, has only encouraged the growth of this relatively young business model. The draw of contactless transactions, quick-and-easy door-to-door deliveries, and the infinite variety of possible products have become simply irresistible for both customers and entrepreneurs, given the world’s current situation.
Here’s the thing, though: earning money through online entrepreneurship, despite the countless online ads promising a way for effortless entrepreneurship, is harder than it looks.
Often, low margins require sellers to move high volumes to make a decent profit. Supply-chain issues also plague drop-shippers, who are often trapped between customers and suppliers when such problems arise. More recently, the competition has become increasingly steep as more and more drop-shippers enter the market. In practice, such competition manifests in drop-shippers vying for suppliers with lower and lower markups and increased difficulties in building a solid, recognizable brand. In a business where the products are very often already front and center, the presence of numerous drop-shipping brands makes branding a puzzle that leaves many online entrepreneurs stumped.
Changing the Story With Change Online Ltd
Through his company Change Online Ltd, Ryan Buttigieg hopes to pave the way for more people to find the same success he did while doing online business. Change Online Ltd thus offers a variety of mentorship and full training systems with topics including drop-shipping, affiliate marketing, working with Amazon FBA, and even website building, among others. While the available lessons may seem excessively varied, Ryan’s depth of experience has shown him that these are all essential elements that can allow a total beginner to develop their own profitable online business.
Beyond the wide array of topics covered, another significant aspect that distinguishes Change Online Ltd from other mentoring services is its customer service and supportive community. The company offers round-the-clock support through direct messaging on top of constant calls with all of their students. Even the company’s founders, Ryan and his brother Reece, make themselves available for regular phone calls as part of their commitment to customer service.
Ryan Buttigieg believes there is enough room for everyone to make a fortune on social media. But while Change Online Ltd promises to help, Ryan says their clients are expected to do their part. After all, they are the only ones responsible for changing their lives.
As Buttigieg puts it, “Don’t bother starting if you aren’t going to give it all you can to change your life. You need commitment, sacrifice, and the desire to be something more than who you are now to break out of the conventional way of life.”
