    Hey, so I've been trying to document my process via a vlog. I'm currently selling on Amazon, but wanting to expand into more in the future.

    Hey Pete - Your content is absolutely stunning. Extremely high quality, and you've got a great story that you're constantly adding to. Here is some advice I read earlier today posted by Alex Becker.

    I hope all is well with you and I look forward to seeing your future updates. Stick with it!

    Thanks! I'm planning on posting some more clickbiatish stuff. I've noticed that for some reason talking about big accounts seems to get people views, so I'm going to make a couple of videos about why I've stopped watching Tai Lopez and Gary Vee and see if that gets attention. I'm also going to talk about other subjects that are popular like robots taking over jobs, the future of online retail and SnapChat's chances of survival ect. Maybe go on about popular stuff in the business news like Toys R Us shutting down and why I think it has ect too. I'll make all the titles clickbaity and make people ask a question.

    So it will still be tracking my story, but the odd thing to attract people too. I want to keep it atleast on topic and genuine though. I don't want to just do a load of spammy stuff just for the sake of views, but I realise I've got to do it to a degree to get anywhere.

    Hey guys, so here's the latest update!

    This one I go through what I think the future of retail will be, which was sparked off by a thread on this forum.

    I'm also considering moving into more of a private label based business model. Even though the wholesale is growing (which you'll see), it's pretty slow and I want to atleast dip my feet in private label when I have some cash spare after Christmas and see if it's easier!

    P.S. I think the beard is due a trim! Haha!

    Hey guys,

    So here's the next vlog. In this one I talk about how Apple are starting to show signs of starting to go downhill (attempt at clickbait) and I talk about how I'm tripling the amount of products I'm buying because of things selling faster during Christmas.

    I've tried to make it more choppy and fast paced because I've noticed the bigger YouTubers do this to keep people's attention. Let me know what you think about what's in the video and if you reckon the editing has made things better!

    Cheers!

    Hi everyone,

    So here's the next episode of my entrepreneur vlog. In this episode, I talk about how I've bought in £15,000 worth of stock to sell this Christmas and my sales expectations vs last year. I also talk about how I've had to stop selling supplements because of problems with ingredients getting listings banned.

    BTW, what do you think to the new editing I've been doing? Do you think the fast and choppy style is good or just makes it annoying to watch? I've tried to copy Phillip DeFranco and Logan Paul with keeping people's attention ect, but I'm not sure if it takes away people's ability to relax during it compared to the old slower paced stuff?

    Thanks!

    Hey everyone,

    So here's my next vlog. I talk about how I've been refused by my doctor to take out my brain cyst, I talk about my Amazon FBA repricing strategy and I also say how my employee seems to be improving. Thanks!

    So here's the next vlog- I talk about my best day so far on Amazon and generally track how well the Christmas season is going so far. I also talk about how I'm calculating my costs for FBA.

    I've tried to edit it, so it's more relaxing and less fast paced with music in the background ect because I think it was abit too cut before.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks! I actually uploaded the next one, but forgot to post it here:

    Sales have tanked off since all this, so it's not all as great as my last two titles have suggested haha.

    So I uploaded this a while ago, but I've only just got round to posting it here.

    Basically I've got into trading cryptocurrencies and in this video I go through 2 that I've invested in so far:

    So I've made this fast because there was too much content to fit into one vlog.

    I talk about how I sold £3k worth of Dragonchain right at the wrong time and how I'm thinking of quitting Amazon FBA to do cryptocurrency full time.

    In this PetePreneur, I talk about more reasons why I'm going all in on Nebulas coin and I look at VeChain as a possible strategy for splitting my risk in the future in my cryptocurrency investing.

    Curious what exactly happened here... pretty quickly went from FBA to all-crypto... I imagine the fact that the crypto market has never really recovered kind of hampered your spirits a bit? I went from $19k to $5k on Binance in the span of a couple weeks so I can sympathize a bit. Hope your journey has continued nonetheless.

    Thanks, yeah I’m moving into private label on Amazon and haven’t really been posting here. I’ve been keeping up with it on YouTube though. But yeah, feeling pretty down about this whole crypto stuff! It’s been absolutely sinking for like 6 months now!

    I’ll post links to the other videos when I make another one. Thanks for watching!

    What's crypto? Is it just a fad?

    The cryptocurrency market is basically a load of start ups using blockchain (some not) to solve certain problems in the world.

    I don't think it's a fad because decentralisation offers more security because there's more points of attack and smart contracts help eliminate trust.
