In our careers we have two choices. We work for a company helping build their goals and achievements with our skills, strengths and experiences or we work for yourself to build on your ambitions, goals and achievements using the same skills, strengths and experiences. Who's dreams are you helping build?

Have you had those same thoughts? 

A few years ago I decided I was done helping someone else build their business and set out on my own, to build on my dreams. I always dreamt of being my own boss, setting my own hours and doing things my way. Have you had those same thoughts?  My  opportunity presented itself when a close friend suggested I looking into selling physical products on Amazon. After looking into what its' all about, I found it blended well with my skills and experiences, I started my own company and away I went. I have come to love it!

I'm going to share my successes and failure with you, to give you a look into what's it's about. This is why I've decided to write a blog, to document my journey, thoughts, and insights into selling physical products online.

My Plan for helping you

My initial focus will be on news and info about selling on Amazon because of my current success there. My plan is to expand into other areas such as eBay, Etsy, Facebook, Shopify and my own website, to name a few. As I develop my business in those area's, I'll be writing about them also. I'll be covering with you why, what, where, how to sell on each of the platforms, along with whom they work best for. We'll cover how to maximize your sales and profits. I'll include product and sourcing ideas, how to pack and ship products, how to price and minimize competition. It's not all about maximizing profits though, it's taking care of customers. yourself, your family, and enjoying the journey of doing it your own way. There is plenty of room or everyone.

With over 30 years of marketing experience in many varied fields, I'll be covering other areas of marketing, business and life's journey's which are of interest to me and I feel will benefit you as well. I really hope you enjoy them too! Feel free to drop me a note on your comments, concerns, and questions about my subject matter. I would love to hear from you on your thoughts, feeling, and observation about my writing, I might use them for future content.

More about how i started my Journey

With a few hundred-dollar investment, I started as a third-party seller selling on Amazon. I've developed my business by studying market trends and consumer buying habits which have resulted in creating value for consumers with products and bundled products focused on their demands, wants and needs. I've applied my experiences in sales, marketing and merchandising to create product listings with an emphasis on images and descriptions so that consumers like, trust and understand them. This has worked out to be a winning combination.


I’ll ask the question again. Who’s dreams are you helping build? Would you like to build on your dreams? If so then selling physical products online might be the answer for you as well. You can do it on a full time or part time. It can be quite satisfying. You can do it for the enjoyment, to create a living wage, earn extra money for things like a college fund, vacation or early retirement. Stay with me, and you'll see what I mean.

Chances are when you started your business you had very little money to invest.  Most businesses start out on a shoe string budget and have lots of places to spend it on basic necessities.  You can’t build a house without necessities such as hammers, nails and construction materials.  In business that’s computers, printers, Office Equipment, Etc.  A lot of us turn to Amazon to find the best deals, but are you sure you are getting the most for your money through Amazon?

It’s no secret Amazon is one of the largest online shopping places for buyers. They are known for their competitive pricing, customer service and delivery. In addition to individual consumers, business can shop on Amazon as well for their office supplies and other business related purchases.

Maximizing your saving

If you buy for your business, Amazon has a special program for you. I consider it Amazon’s best kept secret for business buyers. The program is called “Amazon Business.”

No cost to start saving money

It’s a free program available for any size business – large or small. By signing up for Amazon Business you’ll have access to exclusive prices, discounts, shipping and payment offers not available to individual account users. Besides you’ll save time by shopping multiple offers from a variety of sellers at one time.

Here are a few of the benefits of an Amazon Business account:

  1. Exclusive business products, pricing and discounts
    • Business only prices- exclusive pricing only offered to business buyers
    • Quantity pricing – exclusive price breaks for multi-unit purchases
    • Business only products – there is a growing number of products that are being offered exclusively to business buyers

Here is an example of a case of paper comparison, the consumer side verses the special pricing for business buyers. Note, the price difference along with the delivery date.

Business Account pricing

Consumer Account pricing

  1. Fast, reliable shipping

  2. Payment solutions

    • Corporate Credit Lines offer expanded user and management options – authorize multiple buyers on a single account, download order history reports, and pay by purchase order.
    • Share payment methods, including your company's existing purchasing cards, with a few users or your whole team.
