Stop Doing This NOW!

It’s easy to get discouraged and de-motivated these days. After all, 2020 has been nothing like any of us have ever imagined. From pandemic to racial injustice, there’s a lot of issues that force us to adjust to a new normal - even when it comes to running our online businesses. But while the struggle is certainly real, a few reminders of the Dos and Don’ts of growing your Amazon business will help you balance yourself and tread the waters of an uncertain time. 

In this episode, I discuss some key points about selling on Amazon that we need to remember, no matter our level of experience. I describe how, like in any other business, you’d need to invest time, money, and energy into your Amazon business and why it isn’t a get rich quick scheme. I explain why you need to narrow down your sources of information about starting an Amazon business and underscore the role of research in growing your Amazon store. I also highlight the benefits of wholesaling and explore why you need to think about your goals and anchor into them.
