Is Amazon FBA Too Saturated? Is There Still Money to Make?

Is Amazon FBA too saturated? This is probably the most popular question I see being asked on the internet regarding Amazon FBA.

Only a year ago I too was asking that very same question. I wasn’t yet selling then, but I really wanted to. The only thing that was holding me back was the thought that I won’t make any money. I was afraid of putting in the time, the effort and money, and not getting back anything in return. So whenever I hear the question “Is Amazon FBA too saturated?”, I can understand people’s concern and relate to it. But on the other hand, I don’t understand when that question on its own holds people back from even trying. As Wayne Gretzky once said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

How to Stay Motivated When Things Go Bad

We all have a better life that we dream of, and we all have things that we want to accomplish and achieve. As a result, we create new and exciting ideas that motivate us and push to take action.

However, in order to live those dreams, it is not enough to just become motivated. We need to know how to stay motivated.

We all climb the mountain of success, during which it may seem as if nothing can go wrong, as if we finally made it. But unfortunately, life is like a rollercoaster, full ups and downs, full of surprises. No matter what you do, if it’s challenging enough, there will be moments of difficulty and despair. We are then faced with the problem of how to stay motivated when things are not going the way we planned them to.

Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail – Making Them Work

The New Year is approaching, which means it’s time to look back at everything that has happened to us during the year. Take a look at the good things, the bad things, the things we have learned and were able to overcome. Look at the people that we have met and the experiences that we have had. What do you feel?

If you are like most people, you have probably made some New Year’s resolutions last year. Do you remember them all? If so, how did it go? Did you lose weight, learn to play the guitar, meditate 10 minutes every day, started a business, read one book every week, donated to charities, get into a new school, find a job, visited parents more often, joined public speaking classes? How much did you accomplish?

Conventional Wisdom Creates Limiting Beliefs, Is the Enemy of Progress and a Dream Killer

When I work with people, one of our main goals is to find limiting beliefs in them. Limiting beliefs are beliefs that others either hold about themselves or the world around them. Those are the beliefs that prevent people from successfully moving towards their dreams. Simply put, limiting beliefs hold people back.

But to be completely honest with you, getting rid of a limiting belief is not hard at all. All you have to do is realize that you have one, become aware of it, and voila! That pretty much on its own solves the whole issue. But like I said, that isn’t hard; identifying the belief is.

My Top 10 Strong Work Ethic Rules for a Solo Entrepreneur

Having an outstanding work ethic while being a solo entrepreneur is crucial. Unlike in a company, where the work ethic will be forced upon you, as a solo entrepreneur, you must create one for yourself. Having no strong work ethic means troubles with having success. Having no strong work ethic also means that other solo entrepreneurs – your competitors, those that do have an ethic, will always be one step ahead of you.

Keep in mind that your position is unique. You are not a large corporation where decisions are made slow, but the money still flows. In order to make a living, you will have to hustle and act fast. It’s scary in a way, but it’s also exciting – as an entrepreneur, you get to keep all the “shekels” you make. No sharing with anyone else (excluding the tax office)!
