Nathan Hirsch

Nathan Hirsch is a 28-year-old serial entrepreneur who is an expert in hiring online and building eCommerce businesses.
 
He co-founded his first eCommerce company out of his dorm room in 2009 dropshipping products on Amazon.com and built it to sell over $25 million worth of products over 5 years.

“Ask questions, meaning Information is power!”

His tips to become more culturally competent are:

  • Try new things; get out of your comfort zone
  • Ask questions; remember that information is power
  • Follow the local news and stay up to date. This way you can better relate to the locals and you show an interest in their world.
