Over the years I've observed many people who have succeeded seemingly easily with an online business, and I've seen many who just can't seem to get going no matter what strategy or technique they deploy.  It's not your intelligence, your tools, your cash, your education or your determination that matters nearly as much as this ONE single factor that I reveal in this simple episode.  Deploy this strategy and you'll be unstoppable.

This episode is off the typical topics of business building tips, but it's also a topic that comes up quite a bit when our family is around other business building families. At our recent CES live event it seemed like as many people talked to me about my kids and how we are educating and raising them as much as any other topic. In this episode I give a couple of practical tips for parenting your kids in a way that sets them up for success as an employee, or better yet in my humble opinion, as a business building warrior! If you don't have kids, this episode may not be for you, but for those who have been asking me to talk about this a bit, I hope you find these ideas practical and helpful! Show notes at

Guess what time it is?! Yes it's Q4! In this super short episode Jim talks about the last three months of the year  - which is when online shoppers go CRAZY and the retail stores begin to feed us as online sellers a never ending wave of profitable inventory!  Online selling warriors need to get ahold of as much valuable, profitable inventory as possible for Q4 - and now is the time to do it! Today Jim explains the mechanics of the strategy.  These are our popular small sourcing groups that we do each year. Remember, timing is everything. You can spend lots of valuable time researching by digging out this information on your own or you could instead serve the market with speed getting items listed and SOLD instead of wasting time researching!  Just one great tip from our Q4 groups and your membership is paid for! We'll be posting a steady stream of deals though - you'll run out of money before you run out of profitable deals! Q4 here we come!

It truly doesn't matter where you live, or what your background is when it comes to succeeding online with an Amazon or online selling business.  Today I hang out with a couple of great guys who have incredible stories. Our community is FULL of great stories like these, and we hope it encourages you! First up we have Barrington who had lived in Jamaica his whole life. He started out with the course and went on to build an empire online from the tiny island! You can hear the first recording I ever had with him at the top of the Proven Amazon Course website.
Next we talk to Lance Wolfe. He started out selling a few books on Amazon and then really grew from there into a healthy seven figure business through unique partnerships!
There are plenty of great tips and lessons in today's show! Enjoy!

Jim discusses why he and millions of others choose not to consume business training and content from those who regularly use profanity.  What is a "bad" word anyway?
