    Hey Guys, Yes I made it to the Forum!

    SAAS / APPS INTRO 
    I’ll give you an idea: A better platform for Amazon sellers to create financial overviews of their business. I’d try to make it happen myself if I weren’t busy with what I’m doing now. There’s A2X integration with quick books, helium10, and others.. but I still have to pay an accountant for...

    Swimming Against My Current

    INTRO 
    Yep! I have done the future authoring program twice now. Once when I was 20, and once earlier this year after turning 25. It definitely helped.

    If you aren't doing this, you are leaving a LOT of money on the table.

    NOTABLE! MARKETING 
    Thanks MJ! Just an idea - but what about a Thumbnail with a catchy headline (QR code underneath) that leads people to a landing page where you dish out some more valuable content. Or - if you want them to join the forum as the main goal - the QR code could lead to a link of one of your posts...

    Swimming Against My Current

    INTRO 
    I want to preface this by saying that some people are happy with slow lane jobs. They find a place they enjoy working, friends they enjoy hanging out with, and things to do in their free time. It's possible that finding a job you enjoy would be just fine for you. Whatever you do, do it...

    23 Year Old w/19 Employees: Just Did $5m in 2021, *OFFICIALLY A MILLIONAIRE* - AMA

    GOLD! EXECUTION AMA 
    Thanks! I'm going to look into it tomorrow. Would you recommend a warehouse near Las Vegas? I can't help but think East Coast (where I am) might not be the best idea with transit times. In terms of systems, I need to tighten up my spending decisions in terms of turnover/cashflow and new...

    GOLD! EXECUTION AMA 
    First, big props on your success. It's inspiring. Right now I am on track for your 2019 numbers in terms of revenue, but I still run everything solo with independent contractors. When I read your post - what surprised me was your focus on the warehouse locations. Do you care to elaborate on...

    NOTABLE! MARKETING 
    This is a post more targeted towards people who sell physical products, but I imagine that it has broader application. I'm currently eating and in a trance after a prolonged period of looking at spreadsheets - so I'll do my best to be clear and straight to the point. I'd also like to add that...

    Is this warehouse F*cking me? It smells like complete bullshit...

    PEOPLE 
    On that note - although it looks like there is going to be a compromise - I am no longer interested in working with them. That kind of dishonesty is not something I ever want to deal with when working with someone that should have my back if we are going to do business in the long term. It was...

    What Are You Giving Up In 2022?

    MINDSET 
    I’m giving up most of the customer support end of my business. I always like to go above and beyond because I’ve seen the results it leads to in organic growth. It’s time to let go of that. It’s simply not time best spent for me and I can’t afford to do it anymore. I’m also going to give up...

    Is this warehouse F*cking me? It smells like complete bullshit...

    PEOPLE 
    I actually just recorded a video like this myself! I have already let a few things slide with them, but this is just too obviously BS. I’m going to send it to them tomorrow because I’ve got to re-record it. I was such a dick in the video that I honestly feel it will do more harm than good...

    Is this warehouse F*cking me? It smells like complete bullshit...

    PEOPLE 
    Yeah, I’m definitely going to have to step up my game here. They’re a reputable company in the states, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try to pull one over on you. After my conversations with my other warehouse that I work with - as well as my supplier - they’re clearly exaggerating their...

    Is this warehouse F*cking me? It smells like complete bullshit...

    PEOPLE 
    The warehouse I am working with made a big mistake with customs and a bunch of orders got sent back at once. It led to like $5k+ in charges. It was their fault so they said they'd cover it. So, I considered the whole situation reconciled. A few weeks later - after about 20 pallets were...

    Why can't I succeed already? Is something's wrong with me?

    17 year old financial advisors :rofl: All I can do is facepalm.

    Why can't I succeed already? Is something's wrong with me?

    You've got a massive head-start. You may feel like you've failed, but if you open up your perspective you'll see that you're at a huge advantage. Don't let social media fool you. Almost nobody your age is running a successful business. The ones who are, are probably telling other kids that...

    A complete rollercoaster: Lessons I learned from raising over $350,000 through crowdfunding and launching on Amazon (today!)

    EXECUTION 
    As far as getting backers goes, I played the standard game of getting qualified leads for a launch list via FaceBook ads. Gaining these qualified leads also helped hone who to target during the campaign, but really it was a matter of pumping the Kickstarter up with traffic and sales as hard as...

    Also, sorry for the bump - but if anyone wants my advice on doing a Kickstarter or even amazon launches - feel free to ask :)

    A complete rollercoaster: Lessons I learned from raising over $350,000 through crowdfunding and launching on Amazon (today!)

    EXECUTION 
    Hey guys! This past year has been absolutely crazy, but I’m so excited to announce that EVO Gym is launching today on Amazon. I wanted to make this post as a bit of a summary of the big ups and downs of the past year, and what I’ve learned from them. I hope you can take something from it too...

    Freight costs from China to the U.S. From $8000 to $24,000 per 40 foot container in the past month.

    SOURCING 
    Yes, that's the one positive for me. I can definitely take the hit on my margins without raising price at all as well. It's just a bit frustrating since I already over-extended with this round of production.

    SOURCING 
    Hey Walter! Thanks a lot for the reply. That would be great. I definitely can't go with air freight right now, but if you have any companies you can recommend me for consolidation I would really appreciate it.

    SOURCING 
    I'm sorry to hear that man. I was thinking about how much it would suck if I sold large products. It actually looks like I'm getting better quotes by doing several LCL shipments than full container shipments.. which is odd. My suppliers themselves have contracts with some companies and they...
