How did you start the first time in the import export business?

It was year 1974/1975 when I first started my import/export business. Total money I spent on buying the necessary tools was $35.00 and I started from my home.

I would go to my daytime job an in the evening would type letters and send it to the suppliers abroad.





I had heard that if I write 100 letters and if 3 reply you are good and I would type as many letters I could in six to seven hours a night.

In about 20 days I starting getting replies and then on my days off I would take the samples I had received and go around the market to see the importers if they would buy from me. Every one I went to gave me a run around saying, I need this and that and not what you have and I would go back and start writing letters again every night.

Till one day a friend of a friend saw me in the market and called me and asked what I was doing and I told him the whole story and he said, I know you are honest and a hard worker and it will not work this way in this market. He told me to go home and come back tomorrow and see him and I did so.

When I went there he offered me a cup of tea and told me to come to the other room and showed me a table and chair and said that is for you my friend and when ever you are ready just start working from that table and I will guide you and tell you what and how to do business.

In a couple of months I started getting orders and business came my way from left and right and which would have not been achieved if that person did not guide and show me the right path. I always praise and pray for that old man as after the revolution we were separated and I have not since seen him or heard from him. I always tell this story to my friends when ever I get a chance.
