I know it has been ages since I have posted. First, I want to sincerely apologize for my absence. Sometimes life gets in the way and I had to take an unannounced break from blogging. I want you to know that I didn’t forget about you, and I have been continuing on my journey to master e-commerce.
So here is what I want you to know about me. I am a full time wife, mom, and employee of a fortune 500 company. I do like my job, but I’m on the search for financial independence. I am also on the leadership team with Houston African American Bloggers Association. Because I have been working hard as the social media chair, plus working a full time job, and being wife and mom, something had to give. Don’t worry, I have still been doing Amazon FBA and learned a ton during Q4 of last year. So now Q4 is upon us once again, and I will be taking everything I learned over the past year and will apply it to this year.
In case you are wondering, Q4 is the best time for sellers. People will literally buy just about anything this time of year. I LOVE IT. And over the next few days and weeks, I’m going to share what I learned with you.
For example, last year, I hit up almost every store for their after Christmas sales to stock up on items to send in this year. I may have spent a good portion of what I earned for the buy and hold strategy, but when you are getting items for at least 50% off, and then selling them for at least 100% profit, you’ll do it, too. I also bought from a Chinese supplier that was selling items at the fraction of the cost that you would pay from Aliexpress and I didn’t have to buy a minimum order. The shipping was a little high, but almost every item I picked sold out in a matter of days once they made it to Amazon.
Going forward, here is my promise to you. I will post at least once a week. I will share with you my mistakes and triumphs and I will be transparent.
