What are you dreaming about? I believe many of us wish not only to gain something for ourselves but also to please our parents for all that they’ve done for us. They deserve it, right? Today, we’re going to discuss how to ensure carefree lives for our parents. This is exactly what Paul and Isaac did – they retired their parents at 21!

Ensuring secured old age for parents? No big deal!

Everyone has their financial dreams, right? Some dream of buying a dream car, others a house, and some wish to travel the world. But one common desire many of us share is to pay tribute to our parents for supporting and providing for us until we could stand on our own feet.

Do you feel the same? Then you’ll find the story of our heroes today, Paul and Isaac from Canada, extremely compelling.

These two guys kept their online business success a secret from their parents for a year. Now, they’ve provided their parents with unlimited gold credit cards, and that’s just the beginning.

But let’s go back a year, to how it all started.

Starting an online business: solution to all problems?


Some doubt whether an online business can truly be profitable or even accessible to people without experience? We always firmly say – yes!

Think about it. Over a year ago, Paul and Isaac, two brothers from Canada, were still finding themselves. They lived in a small house with their supportive parents. When they stumbled upon ecommerce and told their parents, they received full support, though the pressure was on.

Meanwhile, the guys had a long journey. In 10 months, they ran as many as 22 stores, tested hundreds of products, and various marketing strategies. They even deleted social media apps from their phones to focus entirely on their business.

The result? They gained invaluable experience at first.

After 10 months of hard work, they managed to launch one store with only tested products and a polished marketing strategy.

Now the results speak for themselves. $70k a day in revenues, and they started hiring specialists, like customer support, to maximize their free time for themselves and, of course, their parents.

The year of dropshipping: eternal success?

A year after starting their business, the boys had achieved significant success, and it was time to reveal everything to their parents. They didn’t just want to tell them; they wanted to amaze them with gifts, thanks, and more.

This coincided with their father’s upcoming 50th birthday. The boys stocked up on new iPhones, headphones, bought their parents a trip to Hawaii with first-class tickets and unlimited spending.

It’s hard to convey such strong emotions through text, but the parents were genuinely shocked by the gifts, especially the cost of the trip. But they were even more astonished when the boys showed them how much they had earned in a year with their business, which the parents knew about but hadn’t shown much interest in.

They had made almost $700K in total! And now their daily revenue has hit the $40K/day mark. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it? The parents agreed.


Gifts aside, it was the solid revenue that allowed the boys to give their parents gold credit cards with no limits, quoting “so you can buy absolutely anything you want.” To which the mother said to the father, “our lives are complete.” Isn’t it what we all live for?

Actually, guys have big eyes as for their business, as for keeping their parents pleased. What if I tell you that they’ve already bought a new BMW IX for their mom?

The boys went through a long path from failures to success through trial and error. They identified three factors that significantly hindered their growth.

  • Creating video creatives – it’s too long and tedious.
  • Poor supplier, poor fulfillment – there can be too many problems with banks because refunds impact trust.
  • Poor customer support – it stems from the second problem and results in a high volume of work on refunds and low trust.

Let me tell you, these are problems they faced by their choice, deciding to learn everything on their own. It’s a good path, but very resource-intensive, especially in terms of time.
