Recommended Courses and Content
They might say, “Those who can’t do, teach.” However, that is far from the truth when it comes to our team. We are not just teachers; we are sellers at heart. We teach because we believe that educated sellers make the marketplace better. We have courses and programs for those just starting on in eCommerce and those who sell at consistently high volumes. We have coached and taught thousands of people all over the world. If there is a course or topic you would like us to create, please email us, we love serving and teaching other sellers.
We have laid out content that is appropriate for different volumes of selling. We know what is like to start with nothing. So our two getting started guides will always be free. After you have had some success on Amazon we would love to help you take your business to the next level. We have everything from single courses to our Master Class and Mentor Program.

Getting Started on Amazon
Getting Your First $1000 In Sales
This stage of your business is for focusing on the basics. It might not be cool, sexy, or fun; but it is worth it! Whether you are starting with $100 or $100,000 we recommend starting with Used Books on Amazon. We also have a course for gathering seed money using buying at Garage Sales and selling on Amazon.
One of our passions is helping others succeed. There is no shortcut: there is no secret. The key is consistent action over time.

What I don’t recommend for this milestone:
Wholesale- Until you have a better feel for the marketplace I recommend you start with Retail Arbitrage or Used Books. While it is possible to go straight to wholesale, your mistakes will be more expensive.
Private Label– There are some compliance and liability issues with Private Label. Creating your own brand is a great way to sell on Amazon. I would recommend that you get several months of experience before trying to private label a product. If you still decide to do private label at this level, make sure you have a good business entity and business insurance.
Importing- Like private label there are a lot of liability and compliance issues. There is also a lot of regulations with importing, lead testing, etc. In addition you will need an import broker. Your business insurance will go up dramatically if you import.
Growing To $5,000 A Month In Sales
In order to get from those first sales to consistent revenue, you need to start thinking like a business owner. Starting to create systems, better understand the marketplace, and have control over your numbers will help you push past that $5,000 a month mark. If you haven’t done so already, you should make sure you get your business entity set up and purchase business insurance.
Steps for Milestone 2
- Create Goals and an action plan
- Create Systems
- Conquer Stale Inventory
- Refine Your ROI and Margin
Our recommendation for this milestone is the Unstoppable Academy to help you inexpensively scale and streamline yours business.
Consistently Generating $20,000+ A Month In Sales
You should be very proud of what you have built so far. Your business is generating income on a regular business and you have learned a lot about the marketplace in the process. Now you focus needs to shift on creating systems, profitability, and new streams of income. At this point creating systems in your business will allow you to have the freedom you have always wanted from your business.
Steps for Milestone 3
- Hire Help/Refine Systems
- Inventory Turn Rate
- Refine Buying Strategies
- Add a New Stream
- Get Some Accountability
Our recommendation for this Milestone is either the Unstoppable Amazon Academy or our Momentum Group Coaching Program. People working toward this are also a good potential fit for our Mentoring Program.
