3 Ways to Fail at Everything in Life

You may have seen this great piece making the rounds on the internet but Scott wants to share it with TAS followers like you! So here are the “3 Ways to Fail at Everything in Life.”

  1. Complain about EVERYTHING. Have you ever noticed yourself complaining and making excuses? Knock it off!
  2. Blame others for your problems. Don’t play the blame game. Even if it’s someone else’s fault, don’t fall into this pattern.
  3. Never be grateful. Take stock of the great things you have in life. It can make all the difference!

Product Certification

One of the difficult aspects of starting your business selling on Amazon is getting your product certified. Some products will be easier than others and you might even run into products being sold on Amazon that you can’t get certified yourself. Should you proceed with selling that product even if you can’t get it certified? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott dives into the reasons why you should approach this area with caution. He also gives helpful resources that you can use to make the most informed decision you can for your business. If you are just starting the process or if you are looking to start selling a new product, this episode will be very helpful for you - don’t miss it!

BSR and Variations

When you set up a product listing on Amazon it’s always a best practice to have an option for variations selected there in the beginning for your listing. Once you have your product up and running and the sales are rolling in, you might find that some variations sell better than the main listing. Don’t worry about that! On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott explains why one variation selling better than others shouldn’t concern you even if it is affecting your BSR.
