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!

All you have to do is submit simple t-shirt design ideas to Amazon (free) and they wait for sales to be made. You get paid a nice profit for each sale!  While we don't consider Merch a great income model on its own just yet, we do think it's a great add on stream of income for anyone who wants to dive into custom printed shirts on the number one shirt selling website in the U.S. -!

 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!

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! (Our CES event in Orlando)

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!

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.​ Show notes are at

There are literally millions of products that aren't on Amazon yet that should be for sale there. It's a biz model that's wide open! If you start putting some of those products up for sale on Amazon you will eventually find yourself selling a lot of products at great profits, but you could wind up competing with Amazon as well! We love to see sellers like you approach businesses, wholesalers, product owners and manufacturers and begin selling their products on Amazon - but what if Amazon decides to try to cut you out of the picture and buy direct from the source? On today's show Jim tells you how to compete with Amazon and WIN while finding countless low risk products you can profitably sell on Amazon and numerous other online platforms.

We've sold a few hundred million dollars of private-label products on Amazon and have also successfully taught many others to do the same. In this show we "tell all!" We've also recently updated our system to cover the whole process. We can say now more than ever (with extreme confidence) that your success in private label doesn't have to be complicated! If you've been listening to the way PL has been taught by most "experts," you've probably overspent, overeducated yourself and gave up frustrated or worse yet lost a pile of cash! End the madness!

We've sold tens of millions of dollars in wholesale goods across numerous product categories on Amazon and eBay. We've also taught thousands how to do it themselves...and it's NOT complicated. Sourcing wholesale is a topic of confusion for many people, but not for those who have our course! In this one episode Brett and Jim take on the challenge of sharing EVERYTHING they know on the topic of wholesale sourcing in a single episode. If that sounds a little far fetched, it means you really need to hear what they have to say!

If you are stuck in "product sourcing mode" or if you think that success on Amazon is all about the constant search for profitable products, think again. It's way easier than that and we have plenty of proof!

  4. Are there others doing well with this model that I can follow? What’s their success rate? Are they available to answer questions and help me?
  5. Are there major trends or outside forces that make this a good/bad idea?
  6. Can it be expanded, automated or lead to other bigger and better income streams as it grows?

4) A friend in the UK shares how he finds stuff to sell online for nice profits:

5) A member thanks the MST community and shares what they were able to do for Christmas because of the biz strategies they learned here:

6) He is my heart, my purpose, my motivation, 16 years old, autistic, non verbal. I need to leave him a large trust fund.”

7) How I do my wholesale planning – Everything I plan to buy from a supplier I map it out into a spreadsheet like this so I know what to expect after the product has been ordered.

8) I just bought $500+ worth of stuff that will easily flip to $1000 net within a couple months. This happened about an hour ago. For those who say RA is hard, I gotta ask… Compared to what?

9)This simple report can be pulled down in a matter of seconds from Amazon and you can know what the “MOST VIEWED” items are among the hundreds or even thousands of items you’ve sold on Amazon.

10) Silent Sales Machine Radio podcast launched in 2016! Jim was asked to be the first ever keynote speaker at ASD in 2016. We recorded it and made it the opening episode of our new podcast at The show passed the 100K download mark in just over 6 weeks!

11) Would you like to be set for life with a business model that will ALWAYS be vital, scalable and profitable? It’s this simple: Find products that become more valuable by merely moving them from a place of slow movement and low value to a different location where they are more highly valued and/or moving more quickly.

12) Popular discussion about opening a wholesale account:

13) The best 15 second “Amazon private label” advice ANYONE has EVER given you in three steps:

14) A discussion about our coaching program. “I am considering using Jim Cockrum’s coaching program. If anyone has or is using this program, would you tell me of your experience with it?”
(also listen to podcast episode #13 to help decide if you need coaching)

15) The best advice I would give to someone starting to explore earning income online is (great community participation on this one!):

16) An email we received after one member noticed another member in need of a boost:
“I am not rolling in cash but I feel moved to offer to buy the PAC for ***** please – and my only request is that they Pay it forward sometime in the future – i do not want them to know who I am.”

Jim credits a handful of mentors for his business success. In these two episodes Jim spends time with someone who has arguably shaped his business philosophy more than any other mentor. Today the guest is Jim's favorite living author, Rabbi Daniel Lapin. Lapin regularly consults with everyone from large multi-million dollar corporations to small businesses who recognize his incredible ability to apply timeless truth to virtually any business or life challenge. Jim's two all time favorite business books are the Bible (the best selling book in world history!), and Lapin's book "Business Secrets From The Bible". Regardless of your worldview, you'll enjoy listening as Rabbi Lapin and Jim dive into topics related to Internet business strategy and how to virtually guarantee success as an entrepreneur in all areas of life.

Email marketing is boring old news to some, but it's the CORE of success for all of my top clients and my own multiple income stream businesses. My partner is growing multiple HUGE mailing lists right now and we've never stopped loving email! One of my clients just had a $1million week and credits email! If you don't have an email list tied to your online business then you have a business that could possibly vanish in an instant. The most valuable asset you can ever have is a list of people who WANT to hear from you and it's not complicated to get started. It's not nearly as much work as you might be thinking either! No matter what business you are in off or online, you need to be thinking about email marketing. Don't be nervous about getting dropped by eBay, Google, Facebook or Amazon. Grow your own audience! Let's talk about it.
