Becoming an Amazon FBA Seller
Update Jan 2016: I’ve been selling on Amazon for nearly two years. All new posts related to Amazon selling and private labeling are on my new site PrivateLabelPreneur.com.
If you’re interested in following my journey, come on over and get on the email list! I’ve also expanded/updated my Resource list, you can find it here: PrivateLabelPreneur.com/Resources.
If you know me, you know that I’m a podcast junkie. I love them! Pat Flynn, owner of SmartPassiveIncome.com, hosts one of my favorite podcasts.
I was intrigued to say the least…

And, that got me thinking
One of my personal goals is to find ways to generate income that allows me to be location-independent. That means that I can earn my living from anywhere.
Escaping Dodge was intended to be one way that I could generate income; however, I only earn income through affiliate links for products that I’ve used and believe have value. And, I use them sparingly. I have my own products, but haven’t made any sales so they really don’t count! (More to come on that in an upcoming lab.)
I’ve been reluctant to put up ads because the whole point of this site is to help people who want to change their money habits.
Tossing random ads in your face tempting you to buy things you probably don’t need just doesn’t fit the goal of this site so I pass on most income opportunities here.
The Income Lab series is born
Given I haven’t yet reached my net worth goal, I still need to earn a living…besides, earning money is fun!
As I experiment with different ways to accomplish my goal to earn a location-independent income I’ll document my experiences in a new series of posts under the heading “Income Labs.” This might give you ideas on ways you can earn extra income or replace your income and help you ramp up faster and avoid costly mistakes.
I’ll be very honest about what I discover such as costs to start, barriers to overcome, income earned, tips, what to avoid, etc. The first in the series will document my experience as an Amazon seller using their FBA program. (I’ve been at it now for a few weeks so look for new posts coming out shortly!)
Let Me Know What You Think
These tests are as much for you as they are for me. To borrow Pat Flynn’s line, let me be your crash test dummy!
Does this sound interesting to you? Do you have ideas for location-independent work that I should put on my list to try? What do you want to make sure I reveal as I go through the process?
Also, if you have experience with this type of work, let me know and maybe I’ll occasionally post reader stories highlighting their journey. Please take a minute to leave a comment below, they are always appreciated! And, stay tuned for the next post in the series.
