My partners and I have an 8 figure physical product business online. We could live VERY comfortably ONLY selling stuff to random strangers. Why don't we just do it then? Aren't we inviting competitors when we share our ideas and products publicly? One of the questions we get from time to time from new members of our community is this, "If you are so good at selling why do you teach instead of just selling?" It's a fair question, and on this episode, I answer all those questions! Get the show notes at http://SilentJim.com
The Amazon opportunity has NEVER been brighter, nor have the opportunities on eBay, Facebook Marketplace and all other online selling platforms. That being said, there are some areas of caution you should be aware of as a seller. On this episode we talk with Scott Margolius about the latest Amazon suspension issues. Scott has helped hundreds of Amazon sellers get back their account after a suspension issue. The success rate is well over 90% in fact!

Selling physical products online from anywhere in the world DOES NOT mean you are in the business of touching boxes all day! Put down your tape gun and listen up online selling warrior! Today Jim talks to his favorite "Prep Partner". A prep partner is someone who receives your product and either stores it for you, or ships it to Amazon for you. For many sellers, this is a service that pays for itself almost instantly while freeing up loads of time for you to do what you do best - instead of spending days playing with box tape!

In episode #58 you heard Jim's wife Andrea join him as they discussed building a business while balancing business with family and the other more important parts of life. In that show we emphasized that sometimes only ONE of the two spouses works on the biz while the other does not. On TODAY's show however we dive deep with a married couple where they both work on the business together! There's an entirely different set of opportunities and challenges with this model, and we have plenty of inspiration for you regardless of your family situation because Larry and Sue Pruett are also JimCockrumCoaching.com coaches!

Several business lessons are mixed in with object lessons as Jim and Aven discuss some of the items in "dad's office" with the live viewing audience.

There's one simple principle that just might be one of the best kept secrets of our success around here. You can call it a "mind hack" if you'd like. We call it our "F.Y.A." principle. Jim will explain it all in this mini episode. Without "FYA" your odds of success in ANY online venture are slim, however if you implement FYA you'll be virtually assured of having some degree of success and quite possibly WILD success! This principle explains why we are so excited about things like Amazon, Facebook, growing our audience of text opt-in subscribers and email opt-in subscribers etc. Applying the FYA principle virtually guarantees you'll succeed to some degree with any and all of your next projects online.
