Today's ProvenAmazonCourse.com student has an incredible story. There's no hype, no slick tactics or pricey tools. His strategy is simply this, "learn the basics,  do the work and then build relationships". If that sounds too simple, we are sorry - it's all he's got! When Jeff was laid off from his job he had to scramble to find income as they burned through savings. He got started on Amazon using our PAC course, played around with a couple simple strategies and then quickly built an amazing business that should do $5million this year! You'll love hearing the journey!  Guest: Jeff Self - as always, other shows and all show notes can be found at SilentJim.com/podcast

Today's guest went through a dark time about 6 years ago with his family struggling through loss. He was a teacher at the time and he became determined to build something positive out of the losses he and his wife had faced. One of the beautiful things that came from that dark time was Tim's ecommerce business including a thriving Amazon business selling his own sporting goods products as well as grocery! His business has expanded to include family on the team, and they are selling in other nations now as well. It's a story of triumph that will inspire you!

Today you'll meet a coaching student who has used the concepts from the ProvenAmazonCourse to build an incredible business that is on track to hit $800K this year.  He shares some powerful sourcing strategies that have never been shared before as well (like how he scouts for products using only Amazon.com!) This young couple started out selling books on Amazon, but they found it to be a grind. They transitioned to our "replens" model and began to build a stable business that has them setting their sites on being full-time working from home by early next year!

Today's guest has sold books on Amazon and played with dropshipping on Shopify,  but she didn't quite find the stability and sustainability that she'd been hoping for in those models. Eventually she discovered the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course and jumped into our "Replens" module. She applied the simple process we teach and her first full month was a huge success and she quickly opened up her own "prep space" to get her business out of her house! Now she's excited to tell others about her journey. Her 16 year old son is starting to learn the business as well with his mom! Today's guest: Maria Hinton from Canada.

In this episode we brainstorm through the numerous ways you can grow an incredible business (and multiple income streams) using Amazon WITHOUT needing an Amazon account! It's an interesting challenge to think through, but our ProvenAmazonCourse.com course has strategies inside it that require NO AMAZON ACCOUNT of your own! This is useful information for those who want to consider what other income streams they might launch besides selling on one AZ account, as well as for those who are facing an Amazon suspension issue. Suspensions do happen sometimes as discussed in episode #285, but 95% of the time the seller is reinstated. As always, get full show notes from SilentJim.com/podcast

After buying an expensive Amazon selling course from a company that went out of business, our guests today were a bit frustrated by the experience, but Kip and Wendy quickly found the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course and the story changed fast! To make a long story short, they quickly ramped up and expect to see $750K in sales in 2020 after just a couple months of new strategy. You'll love meeting this kind, loving couple and hearing their encouraging story of success - and BIG plans for continued growth! Guests Wendy & Kip Sykes.

Today's young couple are the latest success story from our JimCockrumCoaching.com coaching program and their only income is from the online strategies they've learned from our training and the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course! Income streams include their own coffee brand that's doing well on a shopify site (they learned that from the coffee training module in the PAC), they sell many other RA/OA products on Amazon and have helped other brands and businesses get onto Amazon as well by helping businesses set up accounts and successfully sell online. They've left behind the jobs that weren't fulfilling to them and are on their way to having a $200,000 sales year in 2020 - and the sky is the limit from there! They have plenty of great lessons to share on how they did it! Show notes: https://SilentJim.com/podcast

During the virus chaos there have been an unusual number of sellers who have complained about Amazon's fair price warnings and gouging issues. While this is a topic we've already discussed recently in other episodes, today I tracked down three of the top experts who can help us dive a bit deeper on the topic. Each of our guests today provide us with similar, but unique perspectives on the issue because each of them provide sellers with assistance if/when they are suspended or threatened with suspension by Amazon. You'll learn what products to avoid, when we think the chaos will end, and what your odds are of permanent account loss on today's episode. While it may not sound like an encouraging episode from this
description so far, it truly is once you know all the facts. Knowing the "rules of the game" gives you a big advantage!

Those who are building great businesses on Amazon right now all have something in common. In this short episode I help you figure out if you've got "IT". Can you solve this related brain teaser? There are two identical buckets sitting level in an open field positioned next to each other. Both are open to the sky with no obstructions nearby. It's been raining hard for hours, and while one bucket is full and overflowing with rain water, the other identical bucket is only partially full. How is this possible? The simple answer is a lesson in Amazon and online business success! Get all links and show notes at https://SilentJim.com/podcast

Imagine traveling full-time without a true "home base" and building multiple income streams online while you do so! Today we meet two of our coaching students who have been married 38 years and they are doing EXACTLY that - traveling full-time! Thanks to their online business they are mobile as they go where they must in order to help out sick family and their aging parents and visit the areas they want to see! They now have their own brands that sell well online, and they also do retail sourcing (also called RA or Retail Arbitrage). They are using our "Replens" strategies as well (our sourcing strategy that involves NO scanning of barcodes!) Enjoy hearing about their strategies, successes and failures along the way and how they continue to thrive even during the uncertainties of the virus challenges.
