Have you been crushing it on Amazon and you feel like you’re ready to take some risks? Conversely, do you think Amazon is crushing you, and you don’t know how you’re going to make things work?  This week I’m focusing on the mindsets of successful and professional e-commerce sellers and talking about how to take yourself out of a defeatist mindset to one where you make great decisions.

 

 

 “Know that tomorrow is another great day and there are going to be amazing opportunities – you just have to be willing to go out there and get them.”

 

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • Your preparation strategy for Q1.
  • I let you know my insights into the disempowering story line.
  • I reveal my personal story about fact finding and changing your mindset context can get you out of a negative head space.
  • You’ll hear an enlightening story about how my coach helped me see a negative situation in a new light, which changed my perspective on what happened in the business.
  • I walk you through what you need to do to figure out the numbers so you can be comfortable with short term and long term goals.
  • You need structure and goals in your business life, and I help you maintain your accountability. 

 

3 Quick Tips for New Merchant Fulfilled Amazon Sellers:

  1. Look at the facts as a start to changing your mindset.
  2. If you’re feeling overwhelmed in your business take a temporary step back in Q1 so you can recoup your energy.
  3. Prepare for what’s next and be clear on what actions you must take to achieve the results you want.

Have you ever wondered whether you could sell your Amazon FBA business or if Amazon would even allow a transaction like this? If so, how would it work and how would you determine how much your business is really worth to a potential buyer? On today’s episode, I’m joined by Joe Valley of Quiet Light Brokerage. Quiet Light Brokerage is a business brokerage firm that focuses 100% on internet-based businesses, and what sets them apart from their competition is that – not only do they have experience with buying online businesses, everyone at the firm has personal experience with building and selling an online business!

Joe has personally sold his online nutritional supplements company back in 2010 through Quiet Light, and today, he shares his valuable insight and tips on what Amazon sellers need to focus on before they decide to sell their business.

 

“If you don’t know the real current value of your business, you can’t set goals.” – Joe Valley

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • Is an Amazon FBA business sellable?
  • What makes an Amazon business valuable to business brokers and buyers?
  • What determines the value range of your business?
  • How long does the process of selling an online business typically take?
  • How does the “non-compete clause” work?
  • What are “clean books” and why is it important to keep your books clean instead of using an Excel spreadsheet?
  • If you have a good business that has value – there’s a buyer out there for it.

 

Things to focus on before selling your online business:

  1. Clean books.
  2. Multiple streams of income.
  3. High value product lines and relationships.
  4. Sales tax and Nexus.
