Welcome to my about me page.
My life started at a very young age. So lets skip ahead awhile. I have always been unconventional and never desired the 9-5 life. This about me will not go fully into that aspect of my life.
In 2010 life threw a curveball at my family. We relocated life to Virginia and I needed to find a way to provide for my family. My wife and I had 5 kids at the time. I got a seasonal job that took me away from my family for about 50 hours a week during the holiday shopping season. After that season I was downsized and I knew at that point that i never again wanted to work a regular “real” j.o.b. or 9-5 job.
I had 13 weeks of unemployment to figure out something. I was online a LOT during that time looking and looking and hoping for something. I attempted contact with many so-called internet gurus and marketers knowing that many were well off. One of them contacted me back and helped me with a course to sell on amazon. It really was life changing. I have been doing what that program taught for about 10 years now and it has been really a blessing from Heaven.
Due to the craziness of this year with Covid-19 many of the locations that I have relied on for sourcing have gone out of business or changed their business models. I was forced to pivot and look for other ways to get stuff to resell. So I turned to liquidation lots of brand new items. Some were great for reselling and I was able to send in. Some I had to get approved for. Others I was not able to sell on Amazon and i did not send those items in. However a few of the items I was allowed to send in had issues with the owner of the trademark and they did not lock down their brands with brand registry and they reported me to Amazon for copyright infringement or counterfeiting. These were legit items and brand new. The crazy thing is they were items that were less than $10 and I only had 1 of these items. So my account and selling privileges were again at jeopardy for doing nothing wrong. I am sick and tired of Amazon doing this. Many lose their accounts this way, and their ability to earn a living.
For the past few years from time to time I have had similar issues with Amazon like this and have looked for ways to move my metaphorical eggs to more than one basket. One thing that kept popping up has been a solid recommendation from a successful internet marketer friend Steven Alvey that I should join a program that helped him. It is costly but I knew that I needed to do it. This time with my stimulus funds in the bank I decided I really needed to make it happen. So I am staying FOCUSED and jumping into this with both feet.
