In 2014 I discovered Amazon FBA and decided to go all in. And I’m happy to report that I’m still succeeding at it or you wouldn’t be reading this post! I went all in, and within six months of starting, I’d made selling on Amazon into my full time business.
I figured others could benefit from following my journey and learn from my success and failures. So I started this blog in Feb. 2015 and began posting updates. I also started a Facebook group and wrote my eBook. I began to focus a lot more energy into the FB group vs this blog as time went on though as it’s more interactive, vs static. And it’s grown from 400 people to over 4,700 today, which is incredible.
I’ve had the privilege to help hundreds of people with their own Amazon businesses since I started, and coach several one-on-one. This is so rewarding to me and I love to see them grow their own Amazon FBA businesses.
I’ve pulled back a bit from the Facebook group lately though, as it has taken on a life of it’s own. Members of the community help each other out and I don’t need to chime in as often. I’ve decided to begin focusing more on this blog again along with my YouTube channel moving forward.
Nowadays, my Amazon FBA business is 90% hands off. I do my “business stuff” early in the morning. Then take the rest of the day off to enjoy life and spend time with family and friends.
I’ve created my ultimate freedom business, that provides a great income and takes up very little of my time.
I wouldn’t trade this for more money if it required me being involved 8+ hours a day either.
I’m fully aware that I could scale my business much larger if I spent more time on it, but that’s not what I want at this stage in life. I got into the Amazon business for more freedom of my time, not to pursue wealth at the expense of it. My kids are growing up fast, and I treasure being able to spend time with them.
I hope you find our community useful for your own Amazon journey, whatever that may involve and look forward to hearing about your own success. If you’re looking for training, I created an affordable training package that teaches you all you need to know to set up and run a successful Amazon business. Details here.
All the best,
