How Juliet went from $0-$91k on Amazon

Uncategorized Sep 02, 2018

Juliet lives by the motto, “If others can do it, why can’t I?”

And she did just that.

Juliet moved to the US from the Philippines 8 years ago. She and her husband have a beautiful baby daughter, Sammy. If that is not busy enough, she also works full time as an assistant manager for a high-end retail clothing company.

What she does in her “spare time” is the most amazing thing – she runs an Amazon FBA business.

Juliet began her journey too Amazon much like many others – she used to sell on eBay.

After researching on Youtube she learned Amazon FBA was an easier way to sell online. On March 6, 2016, she opened her Amazon store. She began by selling her eBay inventory before moving on to retail arbitrage during her 30-minute breaks while working at the outlet mall. Retail arbitrage is simply buying products from retail stores and selling them online for a profit.

In our interview with Juliet, we asked her a few questions about her business

How to Approach Amazon's Rolling Long Term Storage Fees

the amazon files Aug 13, 2018
Something is on the horizon that will NEGATIVELY IMPACT the profit you earn in your Amazon business. This is not something you want to sweep under the rug and ignore. 

For years, Amazon has charged sellers long-term storage fees every six months (February and August). Sellers like you could get away with paying minimal monthly storage fees on items collecting dust in Amazon's warehouses. Amazon's warehouses were stuffed to the gills with long tail inventory - items that sold once in a while with no consistency. This became a huge problem for Amazon warehouses during Q4 a couple of years ago. Amazon has been trying to manage the problem ever since. Back in March, Amazon stated that they would be implementing rolling long-term storage fees starting on September 15. 
  • What does this mean?
  • How will it affect your profit?
  • What can you do about it?
In this episode, we break down what Amazon’s new rolling long-term storage fees could mean for your business...

As humans, we all tend to struggle with things like motivation, procrastination, and fear.
