It really can be amazingly simple to launch your own branded products (Private Label) on! 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! Today we'll pull back the curtain and expose the simplicity of the PL model - and you'll be kicking yourself for ever thinking it was complex or expensive! As always, get all show notes at

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!

If you know how to sell stuff on Amazon or eBay - or if you have some basic internet business skills, then you are sitting on a gold mine that you probably don't even recognize is there! You see, 98% of the population has no clue about how online business works, but everyone around you KNOWS that online business is the future of commerce. Without building a website, without learning any new "techie" skills and without even getting a business card for yourself you could quickly have paying clients using ONLY the strategies that we teach in this episode. Today Jim invites a friend of his who started on eBay and now has hundreds of paying clients around the world! This is an episode that we probably could have charged a lot of money for! You are going to love it! Special guest: Mike LeMoine - aka Fireman Mike.

Do you ever feel like there are more opportunities and good business ideas out there than you even have time to investigate? I can help! After helping thousands of entrepreneurs and online business building warriors like you since 2002 we've detected some patterns on how and why many of us wind up on dead ends. Many of us leap before we ask the most important basic questions about all those "good ideas" we run into. Today I have seven basic questions for you - ask them all before you leap!

  1. Is this a good fit for your current budget, schedule, talents, experience and connections?
  2. Will you be creatively serving others if you pursue this model? Is it something you’ll be proud to associate with?
  3. Does my spouse or the people who know me best think it’s a good fit for me?
  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?
  7. Is the opportunity cost unrealistic? In other words, What do I have to give up to pursue this?

1) She announced in 2015 that she would build her Amazon biz and get her first home in 2016- and did it…after being homeless!

2) Our own Michael Brown of Death Wish coffee won a paid in full SUPER BOWL AD yesterday thanks in no small part to the votes of the MySilentTeam Facebook community! Full story at

3) If a disabled single mom with $200 and some junk in the garage can do this, so can you!! Lisa has kept us up to date this year on “her story” It’s worth the read….all 5 “Chapters”

part 1 – Jan 2016

part 2 – March 2016

part 3 – August 2016

part 4 – September 2016

Part 5 – December 2016

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.”

UPDATE: The “stranger/student” WENT TO WORK and then WENT PUBLIC as he posted his results! He’s doing great (proof below) & we invited the “giver” to attend our live 2016 CES event free. She came! All the way from Ireland!

What are the key traits we've observed over and over again among those who continue to grow their online businesses consistently to new levels? Is there any such thing as "enough success" in an online business where you can simply coast and relax? What does each stage look like as your business grows and what does it take to get to each new level?

Jim talks about all that and more in this episode!
