    #569: Many successful sellers in our community have this in common

    #569: Many successful sellers in our community have this in common

    After observing thousands of Ecommerce business builders and coaching countless Amazon sellers over the years, I've noticed undeniable patterns.
     
    There are a handful of simple lessons that will serve you well if you can learn them by HEARING them instead of being PAINFULLY forced to understand them by the realities of ecommerce that we all must eventually understand if we are to succeed.
     
    These ten rules will help you avoid painful mistakes, help you have the proper mindset and also save (and earn) you more money on your journey.

    #568: Built a successful business ONLY by listening to our podcast (no investment needed)

    #568: Built a successful business ONLY by listening to our podcast (no investment needed)

    Today I interview a student who only recently bought the provenamazoncourse.com course and he's not even really dug into it yet.
     
    But get this -
    He's built an amazing business using the Amazon REPLENS strategies that we teach in our community. He's done it all simply by listening to our podcast and hanging out in our free facebook group (there's a link to all podcast episodes and our group at SilentJim.com)
     
    I think it's a huge testament to the generosity and ABUNDANCE MINDSET of the members of our community that we see great stories like this emerging consistently around here!
     
    He did make some big mistakes that he could have avoided had he come into our community sooner (i.e. he made the big mistake of trying to get into private label as a new seller - a huge error), but he's on a great path now and he loves this community!
     
    He's finding profitable inventory, scaling nicely...and he's set to grow rapidly in 2023 now that he's armed with "PAC"!

    #565: The ten scariest phrases we hear from those trying to build a business online

    #565: The ten scariest phrases we hear from those trying to build a business online

    Are you saying things that scare me (and probably should scare you as well?)
     
    Here's what I mean -
     
    As you've likely heard me mention, we've been coaching ecommerce success strategies around here for coming up on 20 years. With thousands of ProvenAmazonCourse.com students and countless success stories (as you've heard on past recent episodes of our podcast), we have some obvious observations that have emerged over time. We see patterns.
     
    There are some bad mindsets, strategies and starting points that seem to come up A LOT around here, and if you manage to avoid these, you'll be giving yourself a huge advantage as a business building warrior!
     
    Let's talk about my list of "scary phrases"
     
    The list includes things like,
     
    "I've always wanted to sell _____" (fill in the blank)
    "Can someone just do it all for me?"
    "I can't seem to find the right product."
    "I don't think I'm smart enough"
    ...and several more. Let's talk about why these are SCARY PHRASES for our leadership team to hear and how we can get you to a much better place fast!

THE BEST PODCAST

This is the most motivational and informational podcast that I have heard. Jim is amazing and you can feel the sincerity through his voice. All the guests that come on to the show are just as great and so insightful. Thank you for everything you guys do! Keep it up and never stop making episodes!!

Google Brett Bartlett and Jim Cockrum

Jim partnered with Brett and always called it their business and his eight figure business with Brett etc. he was a willing partner in Brett’s crazy schemes and played a role in the loss of millions of dollars for investors/victims in his schemes. You don’t need this cult like community and his courses etc. everything is free on YouTube now that you can learn how to do this. Don’t let his folksy Christian charm fool you. He’s a greedy shark. He does some good but he is ultimately commoditizing Christian values and mediocre ecommerce advice into his own cult following. Broaden your horizons by not locking your self into Jim’s community but gather from all sources.
