050 EID: How Does Diane Start a 5 Figure Amazon Business in Less Than 7 Days?

Diane-Dean-new-photo-compressedThis has got be one of the best interviews that you will hear all year. How does a mommy entrepreneur start a five figure business within a couple of weeks? Well, we've only been touting it for the last four or five podcasts and that is – Amazon.

In this episode you'll hear how she was able to convince her son to help her find products at local thrift stores and use them to resell Amazon for an insane amount of profit. Not only that, the decision to start her Amazon business saved her from a huge overhead cost from a possible decision to open up a new location for her already existing business.

In addition to all of this, you'll hear how to safely buy and sell products on Amazon and how to determine whether those products or to sell quickly. You'll know whether to buy one, 10, 50, or 100 of one product based on the indicators that you see prior to buying.

Lastly, we also talk about one of Dean's favorite subjects – outsourcing. Dan from California asked about ways to offload his tasks so that he could spend more time devoted to the things that he loves doing rather than the work that just brings in income. Well, you'll just have to see what Dean has in store for Dan.

After you hear a little bit about how to outsource effectively, you may want to consider our premium course “The Entrepreneur Idea Dads Guide to Making a Living Outsourcing Overseas.” This course will teach you everything that you need to know to get started finding employees overseas (were talking about employees that cost as little as $240 a month for full-time work). Not only that you'll learn how to hire safely and the easy way to train them. You also get all of the templates that Brett and I use in the process.

    Great job Dean and Brett. This was a very encouraging episode and Diane’s interview was very motivational. Thanks so much guys for the great episode. I am looking forward to more episodes on the FBA. If it were not for you two I would have never went ahead and taken the steps to try the PAC Course and also to send some things to FBA and then go full whirl into it. I do not want too be too excited but I really had a fun time the first month with FBA and you are going to be the first to hear how we did. I think I will email that to you Dean if you drop me an email. I tend to be a little bashful, unless of course you get me on the phone and then I tend to rattle on.

    Great episode and I can not say enough for the take action part – How true from my personal experience. If your listeners and readers are hesitant, I would say start with a small sample of items and see what happens. Easier said than done, I know as it took me a number of years to go this route.

    Thanks so much Dean and look forward to the next “Secret Product”.

    Oh, before I get, I love the new look on the entrepreneur site.
