You only have thirty days! Tick, tick, tick.
That’s about how long it takes for most of us to run out of money after we get downsized, rightsized, laid off, pink-slipped, or otherwise let go from our jobs.
So what would you do?
Would you be able to replace your income? Would it be with yet another horrible job, or with something you really enjoy?
Hi. I’m AJ. Really nice to meet you. And thanks for checking out my book.
I won’t bore you with my “rags to riches” story.
But let me just tell you how I got from a not-so-good place financially to a really good one, and what’s in that story for you.
There really wasn’t a “rags” side to the story. I was never dirt poor. I was born in Ireland, grew up middle class in England, emigrated with my parents to the U.S. (Tampa, Florida to be exact) at age 14, and lived a pretty decent life. When I was 18, my parents had just enough money for me to take out huge student loans to go to college.
I got a nice degree, then an MBA, got lucky and landed a good job in Tampa, with an OK income.
OK, it wasn’t a good job. The work was mind-numbing and pointless, the environment was soul crushing, and my boss was a real “B” who hated me. But at least the rent and the student loans were getting paid.
Being single at that point, I spent a lot of my free time online (duh). But I was a little different than my peers – I was seriously looking for ways to make some money online, rather than just scrolling through social media.
I had enough money to take the free “courses” that people offer you before they try to sell you their expensive courses.
Turns out that if you listen carefully, they put some good stuff into those free “courses.” So I put my new training to work.
I started with Amazon®, selling “stuff.” What a blast – seriously – buying stuff cheap, marking it up, selling it online, running packages to the post office, and waiting for my profit. I enjoyed having that little business, but there wasn’t a lot of profit!
So I went back to the drawing board. I was having truckloads of goods shipped to my dad’s garage (he didn’t care much for that), spending all my free time sorting, labeling, and listing them, And then shipping the packages one by one as I made sales.
What was I missing? Countless people worldwide are making small (and large) fortunes selling on Amazon® FBA®. Why wasn’t I?
Well, it does turn out there are certain secrets you need to know (which I will try to share with you here).
Things like – how to know what to sell; knowing how to price it (so you can factor in all costs); how to compete without getting in a price race to the bottom; how to find a niche with just the right amount of competition; and on and on.
Ding! First FBA sale. Then second, then third. Then breakeven, then profit. And then scaling – lather, rinse, repeat!
With this and my information marketing business (see my other books), it wasn’t long before I was able to leave that dreadful job (well, courtesy of that “pink slip” I told you about – you know, downsizing and all). With no paycheck, I spent half my time marketing online, and the other half looking for another dreadful job. I had to race against the clock to see which one would replace my income.
Amazon sales and Internet Marketing won! That was four years ago. I’m making a boatload more than any of my would-be bosses are making today – and I don’t have to listen to their c__p!
These days my dad handles most of the Amazon® FBA® business as my partner. He loves it, and it gives me lots of opportunities to keep in touch with him. I write books and handle a lot of the information side of the business.
I hope you enjoy my story, and I hope you prosper from it as I have.
Please, just don’t remind my dad that his kid is also his boss! He prefers the term “partner.” lol
