He is an entrepreneur who found three like-minded business partners in integral parts of his life. They are now founders of one of the biggest Amazon managing and dropshipping brands in North America — Project Wifi
He grew up watching the blood, sweat and tears his family put into creating a 30 year business founded by his grandfather. Cantu was expected to continue the family’s legacy, one day running the auto-upholstery business himself, but Cantu had other dreams.When Cantu discovered eCommerce in 2018, he knew other people who achieved results fast in the industry — A lot of these people were young like himself.
“Once I got my first $8,000 in sales in 7 days with no prior experience, I knew I had something,” he says.
Cantu moved from Texas to California where he attended a conference. It was at the conference where he met Andy Ta Kong, his first business partner. They had a strong connection from the start and knew they could create a budding business together.
Ta Kong introduced Cantu to his roommate Paul Parker who had asked to join their team as he saw the same potential the duo had discussed.
Later, Cantu attended his second conference. The conference featured a presentation by ATM business guru Mohhamed Shakaoat. Cantu never planned on partnering with Shakaoat but was intrigued by the experience and success Shakaoat had in several different businesses.
The four created Project Wifi, a dropshipping management and mentor business that currently helps over 55 clients grow their Amazon businesses to achieve great results ranging anywhere from $35,000 – $115,000 in gross revenue a month.
Cantu has a positive mindset and good spirit that allowed him to excel far beyond managing his family’s business.For more on @marcellocantu, follow him on Instagram
