Ian SchootsIan Schoots

After having reached great success in the world of importing Ian decided to try something new and show people how to change their life and find a new exciting direction…

“I was faced with a crisis many years ago after injuring my back playing cricket. I couldn’t work and the bills started to pile up. In the end it forced me to make a change that I have never regretted. I went to China and found a supplier and the rest is history as they say.”

“As you probably already know I have made alot of money importing my own products to sell here in Australia but I wanted to spend more time with my family and my beautiful wife Nana who I owe a very large degree of my success to. If it wasn’t for her encouragement I wouldn’t be in the position I am in today. I am totally grateful to have found such a perfect partner in life”

“Another reason is that I want to have a positive influence on people and their lives. I understand the pressure of business only too well.”

“I came up with the idea of the Australian Importing Club one day when it dawned on me that people need an honest organisation that is genuinely trying to make a difference in their lives. So my path has been changed once more and now I educate whoever wants to learn how to change their lives for the better.”

“I love it when someone comes to me with a big smile and tells me about how their first container arrived and how exciting it was to unpack it. I love hearing it because I know that feeling and I can see it in their eyes… Business is fun again!”

Adam began his rapid rise to success at the early age of 18 managing a very busy retail business. Unfortunately due to the stress of his work and lifestyle his health was affected.

Adam decided that he had to make a change and work elsewhere which eventually led him into business for himself. Shortly after he joined forces with his close Uncle, Ian Schoots and they successfully began importing their own line of products…

“In just our 6th month we turned over $30,000 purely online. The profit on that $30,000 was $20,000. I had never ever experienced that sort of margin, what a feeling!… I almost felt guilty for making that sort of money so easily.”

Container“Next we imported some Hair Accessories for my wholesale business. My Gross Profit Margin went from 40% to 60% pretty much overnight, so instead of selling $100,000 worth of stock and making $40,000 I was suddenly making $60,000… per month. So if I was to not improve the sales of the business at all, that’s an extra $240,000 a year”

In 2 years since adding import lines to my business and “on the side” importing ventures I have total financial freedom. My life is balanced between work, family and friends and I travel regularly with my partner. I have time for everyone. I even have time for my passion and play in a professional cover band once a month.

“If you asked me how to change your life, especially if you are in a retail or wholesale business already or maybe you simply want to start a business and get out of the rat race…”

“You’ve just Gotta start importing from China!”
