About

Is this site for you?

This site is for all people selling Private Label products on Amazon.

If you’re British or live in the UK, welcome home! This site is especially for you.
If you’re from the USA (like about 45% of the podcast listeners), you’re very welcome and I think you will still have a lot to learn here.

How can I help you?

If you need help  to choose better products and get sales and profit on Amazon Europe and Amazon USA, it’s my mission to help you.

How? Expert interviews, mostly (see below for the list of guests to date – a real Who’s Who of Amazon).  

I also simplify and apply general  economic and internet marketing principles to Amazon.

What qualifies me to help you?

I started Amazon Mentoring in April 2016.

About me

Having been a musician and music teacher for a couple of decades, I got tired of the low pay (and bored with watching small children try to play the piano in my piano teaching!)
I discovered the Amazon Private Label opportunity and loved the creativity of being an online entrepreneur, as well as the time freedom it gives once it’s up and running.
I’ve always loved listening to intelligent “talk” radio (mostly Radio 4) and that has been expanded to include a great liking for listening to business podcasts over the last decade.
I have been very inspired by many great business podcasts and blogs over the last few years, like those by Tim Ferriss and Seth Godin.
 Although there are now many other good podcasts about selling  on Amazon in the USA,   they are all aimed at US based sellers. There seemed to be no podcast specifically for  Sellers who live in the UK selling in the USA and/or in the UK. So, I decided to create it!

What I can do for you

I bring you my learnings, so you don’t have to re-invent the wheel. I bring you my mistakes, so you don’t have to repeat them. And I tell you what’s working, so you can duplicate it quickly and without wasted effort.

 I’ve run out of inventory three times, had Amazon keep products in “Hazmat” for two weeks, I’ve ignored the business for 2 weeks at a time,  I’ve had products held at customs for two weeks… – you name the mistake, I’ve done it.
Also, I’ve sold 30 units a day of one product at a nice profit…while doing…nothing. Or hit highs like 103 units sold in one day, all at a profit. Nice work if you can get it!
Through the highs and the lows, I’ve made some good money and, despite the odd stressful days, have had a good time. Nothing beats selling while you sleep, trust me!
