Insider’s Guide to Successful Importing from the Third World

From: Tomas Belcik

Dear prospective importer/ exporter, small business owner, entrepreneur,

My name is Tomas Belcik, and I have been an importer, wholesaler and retailer of products from South and Southeast Asia, China, Africa, Latin America and Europe for some 35 years.

Are you frustrated with your job? Are you thinking about starting your own business? Are you confused and feel lost as to what type of business to start? If you’re confused or feel lost, you’re not alone, especially in today’s economy!.

Suppose you’re in retail or wholesale already. How much would getting your inventory at a greater profit margin be worth to your business?

Suppose you could start a business that would put you on course of becoming profitable right from the start!

Imagine you are getting 8 to 10 times markup on the product you sell!

Sounds too good to be true?

We hear about import export business every day as just about anything in this country is imported from somewhere, but few people really understand what to do to get started in import export business and how things really work.

Manufacturing in the Third World and Importing into the United States has become a necessity in order to cut costs and compete in today’s market. Involvement in import export business and International Trade must become an inherent part of any successful business operation today as more than ever before the whole world becomes your market place!

“Mr. Belcik is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of importing from around the world – excellent material!” Michael Lougee

It doesn’t matter what business you want to start, eventually you’ll need a product to sell, you’ll need a product/products to help you sell other products or offer service based on those products. Whether you buy goods from wholesale suppliers for resale or manufacture products you sell you must always look for ways to cut your costs. If you manufacture you must look to sources of not only skilled labor but also low-cost labor to keep your overall cost of doing business down. It’s an undeniable fact in the way business is done today that in order to cut costs and stay competitive, you must start looking overseas, globally, to where skilled and low cost labor may exist and product can be bought for less, not only within the boundaries of the United States! You can not succeed in any business venture these days that involves retail or wholesale of some kind, if you don’t consider buying your product or at least part of what you sell overseas!

But Creating a Profitable Import Export Business Is The Hard Part…

It could take you years and can cost you a small fortune to figure out just the right combination of what to import and how to make money at import export. Many would be importers / exporters fall flat on their face as they jump into the business without knowing all the ins and outs of the business!

I learned the hard way, by trial and error, as when I started 35 years ago by importing from India, there was no Amazon.com, no guidebooks, no courses, no published “how-to” information on import export business to be had. I started out small, literally selling my imports from the back seat of my car. But by late 70s, I was importing container loads of a variety of merchandise, from fashion accessories to architectural artifacts and you name it in between. By late 80s I had hundreds of accounts in the US and overseas I sold to.

The new lifestyle in import export business changed my life entirely!

You can travel all over the world, buy products you like, import your purchases into the United States, or into any other country, hence the whole world may be your marketplace, sell them, and travel in search of more products to buy and sell. You can run your own import export business as a walk-in business, home based business, online business or combination of all three. Above all you can live almost anywhere in the world you wish doing it! You can start an import export business using your own money or you can start an import export business using other people’s money. Above all, you will soon discover other ways to get involved in business and become a true entrepreneur! Import Export business may then indeed become just a steppingstone to a lifestyle you never thought of being possible. That is the main point here – you should not look at Import Export business as a job or a career but an opportunity to start a lifestyle you desire! If you ever dreamed of seeing the world, this is your chance to do something about it. Why stick to your current job or struggling business that leads to nowhere especially in the current economic climate in the United States.

Life is a journey, not a destination! and your import export business can become a lifestyle, not a career or a job!


If you’re in business already, any kind of business!! – would selling your inventory at a greater profit margin dramatically improve your cash flow? Of course it would.

But don’t take my word for it, here’s what my students and clients from all over the country are saying about what I teach:

“Tomas is so knowledgeable that he makes import business sound like an adventure and at the same time he gives a real sense of the pitfalls of the business.” Audrey Brennecke
“Tomas is highly knowledgeable in the import-export business. His many years of experience are apparent in his presentations.” Cindy Sullivan
“Exciting, fact-filled, and made sense. Deeply informative!” William Van Meter

Discover why and how-to start an import export business!

May be even ten years ago people used to look at the label where the product was made. They insisted on buying American made! Remember those TV commercials? But it’s not quite the issue any longer! Everyone loves to get these great looking products made to our taste and specifications and who cares and why even look where in the Third World it is really made!

Remember the economic boom in late 90s? So much came to this country from China and Asia that we all bought this stuff at those great Third World prices and no one was looking were it was made or insisted on wanting to buy American-made!!! And the imports keep coming.

The US government dislikes importers because importing means the dollar is going out. Exporting means the dollar is coming in and we make money. Importing we spend money! But how come then all the American companies are doing it? You know why already. They make money off of you, the consumer, selling the product to you at what seems like a cheap price but they in fact make a higher mark up on what they manufacture overseas and sell here today than ever before when they used to manufacture it in this country! You can do the same!

You should do the same! You must do the same, today, in this economy! Yes, the talk is about loss of jobs in this country and need to bring the jobs back. But let’s face it, you can’t really profess Free Trade and hope for much of what we now import to be suddenly Made in USA, not anytime soon. And even if, you can take your Made in USA product and sell it elsewhere as in this business the whole world is your marketplace!

I have taught classes in Denver, Colorado and elsewhere in the United States for 20 years. Over the years I have had hundreds of students in my classes and many more who found my materials on the internet. Most had no idea what they’d want to import, no clue how to start nor what problems to expect. Actually I prefer this type to those that are already fixed on a product to import, for many are on the wrong track… Taking my classes or getting my materials they got a sound idea where to start and some became very successful!

“Tomas is clearly an expert on the subject matter and can teach anyone how to make it work.” Sharon Kratze
