Today’s guest is a few years out of college, and he has a good job in his field of study, but he’s getting more and more excited about the business he’s building in his spare time on Amazon. He’s a student and a coaching student who manages to sell about $15K per month at a healthy 21% net margin in his spare time. We talk about how he finds products to sell, some tips he’s using from his coach to make shopping and prep more efficient, how he finds new inventory to sell, who he will be hiring soon to help him grow, some book recommendations and much more.
