    #34 - GETIDA Review w/ Yoni Mazor | Amazon Reimbursement Company

    “An Amazon Business is no franchise where someone tells you exactly what you need to do step by step. There’s no manual book titled “How to get your Amazon business right”. It’s a game of innovation and entrepreneurship, it’s an open landscape. It’s exciting, but it’s also wild, so make sure you play it right.”
