Show Notes

Welcome to the Sprint to Profit Podcast. This is Kirsty and Isaac and we developed this podcast to help highlight the very best strategies on how to grow your Amazon business as well as how to plan for your future growth and lifestyle.

Today we’re talking with friend and colleague Corey Smith about his journey from being a New York Physical Therapist to MLM sales to building his own Amazon Empire. He talks about how he got started as an Amazon seller, his highs, his lows, the struggles, his advice for people who have already started on Amazon or people who are afraid to start (drawn from his experiences), about working with a team, and the importance of keywords.
