Ex-Primark Employee, 21, Reveals How He Makes Over £28,000 Per Month During Lockdown

Ex-Primark Employee, 21, Reveals How He Makes Over £28,000 Per Month During Lockdown

A 21-year-old man from the Midlands who failed all his exams and landed a job at Primark has turned his life around and is now making millions every year.

Mohammed Kamil Sattar, who grew up in Telford near Birmingham, spent eight months working for the fast-fashion retailer after dropping out of school.

After quitting the job, Mohammed found himself without money or prospects and decided to take a chance and start a dropshipping company and within weeks, he was raking in the cash.

Mohammed explained: "I basically quit after eight months due to lack of motivation - that, and my bosses constantly telling me I'm not built for having a job.

"I guess something about the work didn't agree with me and I soon found out for myself that I'm actually built for making my own destiny.

"Nowadays I sell products online using the dropshipping business model. That basically means I don't hold any of the inventory I sell.

"My suppliers hold all the inventory and when I get a sale on my website the supplier ships directly to the customer."

As the middle man in the selling process, Mohammed's main role is finding the right product and marketing it.

He said: "I have sold high-fashion items, beauty products, gadgets, pet products, baby products, outdoor products, etc - there's simply too many to name here, but that's the beauty of dropshipping. The opportunities are endless.

"I concern myself primarily with the website layout, and the backend - the automations that process the sale. Their marketing is trash and that's usually because they don't understand Facebook advertising.

"Right now, per month in revenue, I pull in around £186,205. In profit, we're looking at around £28,100-£28,900 and my income has increased by 30-45 percent over the last three years."

The best thing is that the work is more or less entirely Covid-19 proof so Mohammed hasn't lost out on work due to the pandemic.

He added: "Covid-19 has helped my business grow. Due to the demand of business going online and people looking for ways to make money online, people are buying more than ever online.

"Making this level of money now means I can treat my partner to nice things that I wasn't able to give her when I was broke, like holidays, meals, presents."

Mohammed is also happy to share the wealth by teaching online courses on his business model. He said: "I have personally taught 150 people, the company combined has taught 459 people. We only teach three to 10 in a group at any one time."

And if you show promise on the course, he'll even give you a job. He went on: "Anyone can be successful at dropshipping but unfortunately only 5 percent of people actually make it due to their work ethic, mindset, skills.

"Dropshipping isn't some get rich quick scheme - its a three-year game plan. Competition is good for innovation and grounding. There will always be someone better than you in life.

"I completely failed school and college, I'm 100% self-taught using online mentors, courses, books, seminars. Just think of me as the Robin Hood of eCommerce."
