Hello from Germany!
Before you discard this thread let me just start of my saying: I learned my lesson

Before I read any of MJs books I started an FBA "business" selling fitness accessories. Needless to say it failed in a matter of months because of quality problems with the Alibaba products. I followed an Amazon Gurus course, which was a big mistake but back then I didn't know any better. Ironically, the Guru was also the person that highly recommended both of MJ´s books. I read them as quickly as I could and they were absolutely eye-opening because MJ mentioned the EXACT problems I had in my "business" (especially in Unscripted). After finishing both books I stopped the whole FBA "business", at least what was left of it.
I am still dealing with closing that business down and got discouraged for a while after that failure. After almost two years I picked both of MJs books back up and read them again. On my second read-through I noticed that I didn't even understand a lot of what he was saying at first (and I still learn) but it gave me new insights and a strong desire to stop my action-faking.

I plan on following MJ´s ideas and CENTS framework meticulously. Starting with my registration here and posting an Introduction thread.
Thank you for your attention!

Thank your RazorCut

The discussion in there exactly resembles my experience with FBA and how controversial it can be in regard to CENTS

I did not share it at first because I was not sure if it's against Forum rules but here we go: Dan Vas
Oof, I had a feeling it was him when you said he heavily promoted MJ's books. I also bought one of his courses. He seems a lot better than many other gurus out there and I can't say I regret buying the course, other than the feeling i've been done by some marketing bs. Oh well, that's what happens when you're desperate to get out of a job you hate and blinded by the money. His course has certainly helped me so I can't bash the guy.
