Ep. 94 The Secret Scaling Hack - Hiring A+ Talent to Multiply your Growth

Welcome to the Sprint to Profit Podcast for Amazon Sellers. Today we’re going to talk about one of the key areas that you will need to focus on to take your business from a one-person show where you do everything and scale only at your own pace into a full business where you have a team helping you to grow your business in ways that you didn’t know were possible. To get time freedom in your life, you will need to hire strategically in your business, and that means, you need to hire the best talent you can at key points in the business’s life cycle. We previously talked about the FREEDOM EQUATION (MONEY + TIME + ENERGY  = FREEDOM). Neither time or energy are finite resources. You need to do something, which lets you recharge both of those things. One of the best ways to get more time and energy for this equation is to hire the right people to free up that time and energy for you.

Ep.90 How to Be Compliant with Amazon as an FBA Seller

Welcome to the Sprint to Profit Podcast for Amazon Sellers. Today we wanted to bring up some of the struggles Amazon sellers have been facing in dealing with compliance. Not to mention, what is now expected of sellers versus what they may have thought they could do in previous years (as of November 2021). We are going to be speaking about how to stay compliant with Amazon, what you should do as a seller, and when you need to do it. We are not telling you all this to scare you. We want to make sure you are protected and staying on the right side of both Amazon’s policies and actual laws. If you do things right, you have a lot less to worry about. We want to emphasize that these are compliance rules that are in effect in November of 2021. Amazon is constantly changing their policies so if you’re listening to this, far into the future, the Amazon ecosystem could look a lot different.
