The Real Deal

I first learned of Kristen’s story while listening to the Christy Wright podcast. I knew I wanted to learn more. Then I found the duo, Kristen and Amy, on their YouTube channel. The stuff they share for free is so helpful. I have taken two paid for classes and there is so much content in them that I have to keep going back to review. Did I mention that they answer emails! Thanks dear ladies for inspiring me!

Worth it!

If you’re like me, you listen to a lot of podcasts. Probably too many! I cut back on the number of podcast shows I listen to so that I can focus and take action.

This is one I DID NOT cut back on. In addition to the actual how-to technical part of running an Amazon FBA business, these two nurture your entrepreneurial mindset, as well.

They show you how to get over mental hurdles and how to BE a successful business owner. Where to outsource, how to get it all done, strategy, etc. That was what I needed as a new entrepreneur.

This show is the perfect mix of inspiration to keep you going and hard questions to help you grow both personally and professionally.

Take a listen because it’s well worth your time!
