No matter how careful you are, you’re bound to experience challenges, tragedies, and struggles in life. It can be easy to let these things tear you down and bring you further away from your dreams. However, Jaiden Vu believes that it doesn’t have to be this way.
Jaiden Vu is an entrepreneur and dropshipping expert. He fell into the profession accidentally while he was working as a corporate chef. One of the things that made the process of building his business from scratch more difficult for Jaiden was his age. “I was really young when I started,” he said. “People didn’t take me seriously.”
Yet, instead of seeing these challenges as insurmountable or a burden, he used them to fuel his fire. “I worked hard on my branding, and my success gave me the confidence to laugh in the face of adversity.” Jaiden has had other challenges on the way, like increasing debt and losing friends. However, he chose to see them as opportunities instead of hurdles to be feared. “Things became less stressful when I started seeing the world that way. It allows you to focus on your next steps and not get discouraged. Every bump in the road can turn into a fortunate opportunity down the line.”
Jaiden Vu founded Launchers Academy with Christy Liu and Melissa Ng. The platform helps people get their dropshipping businesses off the ground. It’s quickly becoming one of the premier destinations for online education on entrepreneurship.
Jaiden’s biggest piece of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs is to always be learning. “Surround yourself with smart people who you can learn from and do your research before you start your business. Even when you’re a veteran, you should still be reading books and learning about the world around you.”
Whenever you can, consider seeing your struggles as opportunities in disguise. If you can do this, you’ll always be working towards a better future, assures Jaiden Vu.
