Hi, I’m Lewis.
This is the part where you might be expecting me to rant about all my achievements… But the truth is…
I’m 30 years old, I live in London with my wife, Becky.
I enjoy cooking, running, travelling the world with friends
Oh... And my electric scooter.
But I’m guessing you didn't come here to watch me scoot...
In fact, you’re probably wondering,
"What does Lewis Smith know about dropshipping and is he worth my time and attention?"
But the truth is...
I might not be your cup of tea.
Here are 3 reasons why Dropship Unlocked might NOT be for you…
Don’t work with us if you want to ‘get rich quick’.
Dropshipping gets a bad rep for chasing money, selling up and living big.
Burner stores selling cheap widgets.
Here today, gone tomorrow.
Can you generate sales this way?
Is it a long-term sustainable business you can rely on?
But if you’re just looking to make as much money as you can, as quickly as possible, by selling £2 trending products, without a thought for customer satisfaction.
Then we wish you good luck...
But we can’t help you with that.
We help our members create businesses that generate full-time income through just a handful of orders per day.
If you aren’t committed to investing in yourself, don’t work with us.
The great thing about dropshipping is that it doesn’t demand huge upfront costs, like buying stock or private labelling.
But someone once told me that in entrepreneurship, you should get the boat as close to the dock as possible before you make the leap.
Trying to start a business with nothing to invest is like jumping off a cruise ship a mile out to sea.
You can only swim so far…
If you’ve got nothing to invest, you’re jumping in without a life jacket.
We don’t put our clients in that position.
Don’t work with us if you’re looking for shortcuts.
If you’re expecting to be an overnight success, we can’t help you with that.
Many of our members do see their businesses transformed overnight… but it’s nearly always preceded by months of hard graft and fine-tuning.
Think of business like fishing. We’re not here to serve you a fish supper that will feed you for just one day.
Instead, we teach you how to fish.
Cast your net and you can eat for a lifetime…
We won’t just hand you a supplier list or sell you the same old product directory.
This is a road map to success which you can then replicate as many times as you like.
We don’t want 100 members with 100 identical stores, all competing for the same customers.
That’s a race to the bottom.
Our members build businesses that can last a lifetime.
So, if you’re looking for shortcuts, we’re NOT right for you.
If you’ve read this far, you’re probably a lot like me…
Here's My Story
Eat. Sleep. Work. REPEAT.
Got my first graduate job, which turned into seven years climbing the corporate ladder. Long days, longer commutes. Spinning in a hamster wheel.
A Glimpse Behind The Curtain.
Listened to an audio book about entrepreneurship. Discovered a whole new world of online business that I’d never heard of. Immediately got the itch for dropshipping.
Started a Side-Hustle.
Jumped straight in selling £15 products imported from China. Sold four - an overnight success.
Woke up to two chargebacks and one complaint – not quite what I had in mind. Realised I'd built a business I hated.
Invested In Myself
Decided not to reinvent the wheel. Spent the next few months saving up the money to join a good program about how to do it properly.
Did it work?
Was it everything I needed to do this in the UK?
Took The Leap
Quit my job with the freedom to run my own business from Thailand, Mexico, Vietnam and Bali with my wife. Living the dream, until…
I encountered all of the blind spots UK entrepreneurs face with dropshipping: VAT, ad spend, balancing the books, MAP pricing, UK legalities.
Any one of which can RUIN your business overnight.
Came Back From The Brink
Brought my business back from the edge of financial ruin. Learned every valuable lesson I know about UK dropshipping the HARD way.
If you’ve never seen a stressed entrepreneur – THIS is what it looks like.
Eventually It Worked.
After years of trial & error on how to do this in the UK market.
And all of the anxiety, fear and overwhelm that goes with it.
Something I’d never wish on anyone.
My businesses started to see real, consistent success.
