I am brand new to the online business world and I need help. I need to find someone who can help a 50's something guy who has been a successful business man all his life but has to travel extensively, who wants to stop traveling and start an online business but does not have a clue.
I need to find someone who can tell me not only how to start my first store but, the best type of products and help me set up a budget for this business. I want to start with one store and when it reaches a certain stage open a second, then a third and so on. I want to drop ship and I also want to get paid for referring customers to other sites. If anyone can help, please send them my way.

Helen here from Shopify Support. Welcome to the Community, and thanks for reaching out about this.
In addition to the resources Katie provided to you in your other post, it’s also possible to hire assistance with creating your store via the Shopify Experts Marketplace. Here you can find a wealth of Shopify Experts available to assist you in every aspect of your store development and growth.
You can access the Experts Marketplace directly from your account profile in your admin as seen here:
Next, in regards to getting paid to refer customers to other sites from your store, this is possible by setting up an external affiliate link using a third party app from the Shopify App Store. I recommend taking a look at these ones:
For more information about using third party apps on your store, please refer to our Help Doc on Working with apps. Additionally, if you have any specific questions about these apps, how they work or need a hand setting them up, please contact the app developer directly. Please refer to the Help Doc on Getting help with third party apps for guidance on this to ensure you get the support you need.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions!
