In this podcast episode I fly solo while answering common questions about a business I’ve been building on the side selling private label physical products on Amazon.com (my own brand). I've been selling on Amazon.com for less than 3 months and I’m already on track for a six figure+ business. I hit the $10k in the last 30 days mark recently and that’s from only one product.

I still have 9 and a half months to scale sales to an even greater level before the one year anniversary of my first sale on Amazon.com. I started this business because I was inspired by Podcast 17 guest Brian Leyde who in less than one year built a much much larger Amazon business. I’m completely confident that this will be a solid six figure revenue business with the potential to go even beyond that.

In this podcast episode I chat with Brian Jones who I first interviewed earlier this year about his interesting internet business. He runs several niche movie memorabilia websites surrounding the popular Christmas movies "A Christmas Story" and "Christmas Vacation."
