    Shawn Cannon and his partner Becky began selling on Amazon merely as an alternative income source and have been able to bring in a seven-figure turnover yearly.

    Consider every listing as a doorway to get into Amazon

    Branding can greatly impact your Amazon sales turnover if done rightly

    When it comes to running a business, focus on two things—what you love and what you’re great at.
