The great part about this idea is the fact that you can easily scale the idea and keep adding more products to your product list.
Of course, this isn’t as easy as said and there is of course a ton of work that goes into it and not only “making it work” which is the utmost important aspect of running a business.`
Since Amazon FBA, Amazon has many many many many millionaires who utilize their FBA services to scale their businesses.
How do you find a product to sell? – Selling a product is fairly simple, you want to find a product which doesn’t have much competition but also is easy to find and ship. The main concept is most people purchase private label products from Alibaba.com and ship them to Amazon FBA to start selling their products on Amazon.
The process is quite simple and there are product launches which make it more successful to speed up the process of getting more reviews and/or getting more traffic to your product listing page.

Why you should create a podcast? Because of offering his free and popular Podcast he is able to interview and discuss with other Amazon sellers who make much more money then he currently makes. Other people in higher positions than he currently is in can see his success and how hard he is working and through him a few pointers or not.
Imagine all the behind the scene meet ups he gets from the publicity of his podcast.
