    Is Amazon FBA dead in 2022 for starting a business?

    QUESTION 
    Hello, I'm thinking of starting a company via Amazon FBA, that is, using Amazon for product research and for testing the products by launching them there. If a product does well via FBA, I would then offer it via other sales channels (that have nothing to do with Amazon), thus gaining more...

    I wanna start selling my own product soon (still have to look for one btw xD), however, I'm unsure whether I should start with my own website or with FBA.

    FBA for a Financial "Getting Started" Basis

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    I have a lot of amazing business ideas to build, but at the moment I'm pretty broke. I was thinking to start an FBA business to get some cash coming in for a financial basis and then move on to the bigger projects. Would you say that's achievable, even though FBA isn't necessarily a Fastlane?

    INTRO 
    I read TMF in 2019 (late to the game) and was very inspired to actually take action and move into the Fastlane. I have a 6# job and save ~50% of my income (no kids, share my apartment to keep my rent low, etc) so I had some income to dedicate to testing out a business. After a lot of back and...
