Today’s guest Tom is a student who is only a few months into his Amazon selling journey, but it’s going great! The net income he’s seeing is about $250/hour in profit! He has advanced degrees in education and his career is helping families who have special needs kids who are on the spectrum. Covid hit his income hard though, so he was forced to go out “on his own” as an educator and he needed more income.


Within just a few months he’s about to have his first $10K sales month. We enjoyed hearing from Tom because he isn’t one of our typical “big hitter” success stories that are so common on this program. He’s a very part-time seller with only a little experience, yet he’s building something beautiful. He hopes to blend his Amazon business with his educator business at some point by creating opportunities for some of his special needs students to work in his business with him doing some of the prepping and sourcing. He currently works about 10 hours per month and has found about 65 profitable products using our Amazon “replens” strategies.


Today’s guest, Tom Bishop
