However, his passion and love for entrepreneurship were also very strong, and he immediately realized that it was a path he wanted to pursue. This is how he started his first businesses on Shopify and dropshipping. Like most young entrepreneurs, Trevin did not start on a decent run; he failed miserably. But a positive-minded individual, Trevin was very objective and learned a lot during the process. In the summer of 2017, Trevin dropped out of college and got a 9 to 5 working in the construction industry. But it was not long until he discovered that he was not meant for a full-time shift job. He immediately started seeking out other business opportunities, and that’s how he joined an MLM (multi-level marketing), which started to do well for him. Trevin grew a downline of a few hundred people, and overnight, his success was wiped out because the MLM company went out of business. As a result, Trevin found himself stuck yet again, not knowing what to do. After a while of searching, he came across the opportunity to sell on Amazon towards the end of 2017. This was a pivotal moment in his life because his life has never been the same since then. “The moment I learned about the Amazon FBA opportunity, I went all in! I would work my 9 to 5, get home, and work on my Amazon business from 6 pm to 1 am at night. I kept grinding for six months straight until finally, my business replaced my 9 to 5 income, and that was the moment I quit my 9 to 5 job forever and pursued entrepreneurship full time,” Trevin explains. At 25, Trevin Peterson is one of the most notable successful persons in the eCommerce space. He sells over 40 different products and continues to grow every day utilizing Amazon’s Fulfilment by Amazon Program. Trevin is also the founder of AMZ Champions, a consulting business that helps companies and individuals learn how to start selling on Amazon. An impactful organization, AMZ Champions has over 2,000 students, having grown an online community of over 425,000 people who are learning from Trevin’s experience and expertise in the industry. The success of his online businesses has allowed him to start investing in real estate, crypto, the stock market, and different new business opportunities. Trevin has a total of 15 units in his rental real estate portfolio, which continues to grow each day. Trevin now wants to scale and become a household name in the eCommerce space, particularly Amazon FBA.
