“Do-Wha-Here?” – Big question but easy to answer when there is e-commerce
The story of balancing work and family of a busy mother-to-be, the story of entering the life of a young student who is still struggling, to the story of a failed start-up due to the epidemic, or the story of a failed business. The business failures of a young couple all meet at one thing in common: they all ask the question, “What do we do next?”
“Do-Zi-Here” – The common question of anyone starting an online business
Ms. Trinh Kieu Tien was formerly a department head of a large bank, her busy job made her work from morning until late at night. Since being pregnant and having a baby, she has been working very hard while taking care of the children and working at the same time.
Faced with the question of what to do to earn an income and have time to take care of her family, Tien decided to try her hand at doing business on e-commerce. However, at first, Ms. Tien still faced many difficulties due to lack of experience in doing business on digital platforms.
“At first, I couldn’t compete with other stalls on price, nor did I know how to run ads to attract more traffic for the store. At that time, I was very confused and sad.” – Tien recounted.

Not only Tien, Trong Tin – a bachelor born in 1998, is also facing the big question of life “What to do?”. At that time, Tin had 2 options: to return to his hometown to work comfortably or to open a business and have his own business?
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. In the third year of university, Tin also tried to work in the right industry, but found it not suitable for his interests and passions.
Although his family still urges and wants Tin to choose a job in the right field of study, Tin is determined to prove he can be successful with the path he chooses, which is a business on a digital platform. At first, Tin faced many difficulties, but you still try to follow your passion to achieve desirable results.

In another situation, the path of doing business on e-commerce is not easy for Mr. Pham Van Chinh and his wife. In the initial period of opening the booth, in order to save costs, Chinh alone took care of all the work from finding products, taking photos of products, selling, closing orders and delivering goods. In particular, there are days when Chinh has to drive more than 50 kilometers to handle all the workload.
“Starting a business with little capital, so I determined it would be a lot harder. There were times when there was a lot of difficulty, even though my husband and I didn’t want to, we had to give up,” – Mr. Chinh confided.

Similarly, “What to do?” This is also the question that Pham Minh Hoang asked himself when he was faced with a big event – the start-up project he had pursued for 3 years had to stop because of Covid-19. At the age of 30, Mr. Hoang, like many others, is under a lot of pressure to have a solid career.
Refusing to sit still, Mr. Hoang was determined to enter a new field – e-commerce. But starting from zero at a time when many of his peers had settled, he was forced to run many times faster than others.
Pham Minh Hoang (first person from right to left) is constantly trying to race against time to build a career for himself.
It can be seen that four people with four different backgrounds have the same question “What to do?” every time trouble comes. And fortunately, they have found the answer for themselves and have a reliable “companion”. So who is that “companion”?
Having Lazada, “Do-Zi-Here” is no longer a difficult question!
In March 2021, “Doing-Zi-Here” is no longer a challenge for Ms. Tien, when she joins LazMaster season 3 and is guided with enthusiasm: from setting prices, to running ads, to participating. Promotions. Since then, Ms. Tien started to have the first orders.

But I thought I was still young, so let’s go. Thanks to the support and cost control from the Lazada community, I knew where the problem was and put the stall’s development on the right track,” Tin said.
