Elizabeth Harding was selling on Amazon off and on for years and finally decided to dive into selling full time. After the first time, she  knew she needed an accounting solution because, as she says, “I do not do math”. Elizabeth signed up for InventoryLab and loved what she saw so she decided to help out on Facebook and answer questions just for fun. Before long she was on the payroll.

Today Robyn and Elizabeth discuss why you need a solid accounting and tracking practices in your ecommerce business. Too often sellers go into the ecommerce business and not realize that it is a business and that you need to plan for taxes, insurance, and have a proper business structure to safeguard what you have worked so hard to build. They also discuss hiring practices and why it’s so critical to have systems in place to hire the right people for your business. With ideas like the “Easter egg” in the job posting, to the unusual interview questions that give you insight - Robyn takes you through everything you need to know in this actionable conversation with Elizabeth.

Growing your Amazon business can be hard, regardless of where you are in your success journey. Many entrepreneurs struggle with being able to determine whether their business is profitable – at least until it’s time to see the Tax Man at the end of the year. Having effective and efficient systems and processes in place is one of the foundational parts of ensuring your business is profitable and growing in the direction you want it to go.

My guest today is Angela Totman, strategy implementation expert and Chief Operating Officer for Pay Your Family First. Angela has an impressive background in business, accounting, and strategy consulting. She joins us today to share her tips, advice, and insight on ways new and veteran Amazon Fulfillment sellers can grow their business in 2017 and maximize their profits through strategically evaluating their current systems and processes.

 

“Entrepreneurship is risky. By mitigating some of the risk with the way you build as you grow, it makes it easier to grow and become a long-term business.” – Angela Totman

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • What entrepreneurs and small business owners can do to accelerate their growth.
  • Taking a close look at your systems and processes and how to streamline them to grow your business.
  • How to project and ensure your Amazon business is profitable – even before the year ends.
  • How expense tracking mobile apps can help you keep track of your online and offline

  • Should entrepreneurs grow just for growth’s sake?

  • What to consider before investing in new products, services, and tools for your Amazon business.

 

Angela’s Advice to New & Veteran Amazon Sellers:

  • Look at the people around you. Find a mentor that has been where you are and where you want to go.
  • Don’t let lack of confidence stop you from reaching your goals.
