AF186 - Wholesale is Easy and Affordable

wholesale Mar 22, 2021

People have limiting beliefs about money and personal finances all the time, and Amazon business owners are no exception. For instance, if you do retail arbitrage on Amazon and are thinking of pivoting to wholesale for the first time, you might already be thinking the words “I can’t afford that.” Starting wholesale on Amazon can be overwhelming, but stopping yourself from trying because of a limiting belief kills your Amazon business’s potential to succeed even before you try.

It’s time to flip the script on wholesaling and change “I can’t afford that” to a powerful mindset that will take your Amazon business to new heights.

Today, I discuss how limiting beliefs hinder you from growing your Amazon business and how you can change your money mindset. I explain why wholesaling on Amazon is way more affordable than you think and share a few tips to help you make smart business decisions. I reveal why many online businesses fail and the reason people give up their businesses at the first sign of a setback. I also describe how you can deal with different challenges on Amazon, including market competition, and underscore the power of taking small but consistent steps towards your dreams.

“How you think about money is the key to having more or less of it.” - Kristin Ostrander
