About Amazon coach, Michael Veazey
Is this site for you?
This site is for all people selling Private Label products on Amazon.
Amazing FBA is specifically geared to the needs of those just starting out in this sphere.
If you’re a more advanced seller, ie, doing over $10k/month, we are launching a sister Podcast in Feb 2019 for advanced sellers. If you sell over $30K (£25K)/month online in ecommerce, and can get to London regularly, you should check out the 10K Collective Mastermind, whose members have been experiencing some astonishing leaps forward in their businesses.
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 half of the podcast listeners), you’re very welcome and I think you will still have a lot to learn here.
I have sold on Amazon USA, UK and all of Europe, so I’m familiar with the demands of all of those Amazon marketplaces.
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? Let me be your Amazon coach!
You can get free guidance via the free podcast and blog, the free Facebook Group and free PDF guides.
The podcast is based around 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.
Online Video Course
If you can afford to spend $500, our flagship product is the Private Label Process course – a true A-Z of how to go from no experience to launching your first Private Label on Amazon within 6-9 months. Consisting of 349 bite-sized videos, organised into 20 modules, this is a complete plan for 6-9 months of work building your own business online.
If you have a bigger need or bigger budget, the gold standard of help is 1-to-1 mentoring, which I deliver online to clients. Many clients are and have been British based; but I’ve also had clients as far apart as Colorado, USA; Melbourne, Australia; Ireland; Poland; and Germany.
What qualifies me to help you?
I’m a UK based (London) Amazon Entrepreneur myself as well as working as an Amazon Coach and Amazon mastermind convenor.
I’ve been selling on Amazon USA since December 2014 and started selling in the UK in July 2015, branching out into other European marketplaces in late 2016.
Between my own brands and those of business partners, we have made around $250,000 in sales on Amazon since starting business.
More importantly, as the convenor of the 10K Collective Masterminds since Sept. 2017 and as a member of private groups of power sellers and interviewer of Amazon experts for 3 years, I’m in the trenches alongside some major players. I can pass on strategies and techniques that are working right now for really serious players that will only hit the public in 6-12 months’ time.
My own brands…
Brand 1 – 1st 2 years’ sales
USA sales $73,124 UK Sales: £13,862
German sales €555
Brand 2 (1st 6 months figures)
UK Sales: £4,037

I started work as an Amazon coach with my Mentoring programme in April 2016.
I’m a Member of the Chartered Management Institute, Membership ID: P04491439, as part of my Consulting work. I trained in Business Consulting with, among others, Peter Thomson (Nightingale Conant leading author), Dan Bradbury and Daniel Wagner.
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!
