"A little something to encourage newbies like me. I'm just into my third month since joining PAC and selling through FBA. So far today has marked 2 milestones:
1) I have just received my 11th "Amazon has shipped your item" email. Totalling 12 sales for today.
2) My only PL product just crossed into the top 1% in Beauty.
All this while living on the other side of the world and doing everything through my laptop
I left my salaried position in a big ministry more than a year ago and it has been tough (trying to sell the house to clear the mortgage, etc. while planting a couple of house churches for people who would never step into a typical church service and training others in India and Cambodia to do the same AND fundraising for the orphanage and school my wife and I started there!), but at this rate I just have to triple my current sales for the profit to match my previous salary
Many thanks to Jim, Barrington, Duane Malek and so many of you who have availed yourselves and helped tremendously in this adventure!"
Since that time, the thread has generated questions and discussions beyond what I had ever imagined (190 comments at the time of this writing). After some thought and encouragement from members of the MST group, I have finally decided to roll up my sleeves and journal the journey. The beauty of this journey is that it is not made alone, but is an adventure with a community of wonderful, like-minded and humble people who go the extra mile to help each other surmount new peaks everyday.
Special thanks must go to Jim Cockrum and the team he has assembled, who provide not just a course but an environment for the incubation and nurture of ideas that translate into action and life-change.
I invite you to join me in this journey!
