We've been married for almost 16 years and together Shelley and I have 3 beautiful daughters. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2007 with a degree in business and immediately started working for a distributor of electronic components as an inside sales executive and became very familiar with the distribution/wholesale model of doing business. In 2014 when my largest account was bought out by a company in India I was terrified that overnight I could lose 70% of my income to something I had no control over. We decided it was time to take back control and create additional sources of income. In the fall of 2014 Shelley and I started a photo booth rental company and then three months later added bubble soccer rentals to our event business. We still own and operate this event business today. We began selling on Amazon in 2015. In August of 2019, after 12 years in the corporate world I quit my job to go full time with our e-commerce and event businesses. I love working side by side with my wife and I love the freedom and challenges of working for myself. Our event and Amazon businesses have changed our lives in incredible ways. We very much believe in the multiple streams of income life that Jim Cockrum teaches and that selling online has helped us create and we are very excited to help you on your journey to become a successful online entrepreneur. To become more familiar with who we are, and our story please take some time to watch our podcast episodes with Jim Cockrum of Silent Sales Machine Radio at the following links.
Today I manage a team of 10 employees (5 full time and 4 part time and 1 Filipino VA) in a 4500 sq ft warehouse. We closed out 2020 at $2.6M in revenue on Amazon and eBay using the wholesale and Replenishable Arbitrage (Replens) methods of selling online that we will be covering in our coaching sessions. Our 2021 goal is $4.5M in the US and to get set up and launched selling on Amazon in the Canadian market.
