- Richard Telf
Richard Telf is a first generation Cuban immigrant who has been doing e-commerce for about five years now. When he began, he had an interest in business and finding ways to earn money beyond a regular job. He knew about dropshipping, but was uncertain about whether it worked or not. After doing some intense research on coaches, he went half and half on a course with his current business partner Laz Chavez. It was seven hard months confused, frustrated and profitless. Richard and Laz were trying to build an Ecommerce business alongside going to school, working jobs and maintaining their social lives, so the workload was monstrous, but they kept at it. At one point, they finally figured it out. They were too invested in the products they picked before actually testing them. After they let go of this attachment, they tested, evaluated and experimented relentlessly. That's when everything changed for them. Suddenly, they were making hundreds of sales daily and decided to keep expanding their testing mindset. Two years later, they did their first 7 figure month, had finished college, and quit their day jobs to focus all of their efforts into business. Richard realized the true blessing that came from e-commerce. He is able to spend time doing what he finds fulfilling and creating amazing memories with family and friends without having to worry about where the money will come from. That's when Richard realized this blessing is something that CAN and SHOULD be shared with anyone willing to listen and give it a shot. Richard and Laz decided to share this freedom with strangers over the internet and started "The Ecom Profit Masterclass" in the hopes that they would experience similar joy. To date, they have over 1,000 students and they couldn't be happier. Don't let any other person be the gauge of your success, your "limitations" only affect you as long as you believe in them.
- Laz Chavez
Laz Chavez is a Cuban-born immigrant living in Miami who has been involved with e-commerce for the past 5 years. He was studying at Cornell to become a Mechanical Engineer, but was looking for ways to make some extra money. Then one day he and his business partner, Richard, got involved in dropshipping. It took 7 months of testing and failing until they saw their first profitable day. Those first 7 months were the hardest because they weren't sure if they were doing something wrong or if it was the system. Those 7 months really helped them to discern which of those variables were in their control and let them focus their efforts into those variables. Once they figured that out, they started making regular sales and kept scaling from there. At one point, they were making so many sales that it was impossible for them to handle everything, so they began to outsource various tasks and really started to automate their business. After 3 years in the game, some 7-figure months, and a ton of trial and error, they decided to share their knowledge about E-com with the public and started "The Ecom Profit Masterclass." Their students started seeing success, they kept growing and created a community of like minded entrepreneurs on a similar path to financial freedom. Nowadays, some of these students are more profitable than Laz and Richard are. They provided the fundamentals, but all of that growth was due to the students' own experimentation and efforts.
