This week’s podcast

Since we are in transition on the show schedules (moving to 4 podcasts a month and the e-commerce gladiator on Tuesdays) I couldn’t get a call in time with Roland as per usual – so I’m going to go through some solo reflections on what we have been learning and what I am noticing in Amazon FBA in 2018.

International business is a huge challenge, and if there is one point out of all of this that I can say is – be patient! Be respectful. Getting frustrated and offensive is not doing anyone any good. 

Calling all Chinese suppliers who want to learn the benefits of opening a USA company, we will be having a workshop tomorrow at 2pm to 6pm in Futian district of Shenzhen. Need more information about the workshop? Refer to our event page below:
