After watching so many of our students succeed in building beautiful businesses, and also observing the distractions that have prevented some from getting there, we’ve noticed some definitive patterns.

There are some common DISTRACTIONS that seem to lure the attention of even the most disciplined students, so today we hope to warn you about them so you can recognize and avoid these common pitfalls!

Our successful students have a firm grasp of what it takes to AVOID these distractions as they focus on the task at hand… and we hope to equip you do to the same as you pursue building your business!

The below list of distractions are discussed in this episode. The list includes several activities that should be AVOIDED or will need to be overcome by new sellers in order for them to build a successful business of any kind – especially, and Amazon REPLENS business like you’ve heard hundreds of others doing on our podcast.

The distraction list includes:

  1. Launching a new product, new listings on Amazon or attempting Private Label too soon
  2. Going after Liquidations/Overstock or Dropshipping
  3. Looking for that perfectly appealing product that you “feel good about”
  4. Going too deep too fast on one product
  5. The treadmill models (yard sales, discounts, clearance aisles)
  6. Unnecessary frustrations about the Amazon Ungating challenges that new sellers often face
  7. Jumping too soon into pricey software and tools
  8. Focusing on “getting ready to get ready” (i.e. Taxes/ Business Entities etc.)
  9. Enjoying the community and relationships but not working on your business
  10. Life circumstances (your day job, health, kids, commitments etc.)
