We interview Geoffrey Valance, who cranks out a new SKU of his own branded product every single quarter! This process has allowed him to net $10,000/month all from building his own branded products. Find out how he’s been able to build his brand so quickly in this episode of the Amazon Seller Podcast!
———-FULL SHOW TRANSCRIPT———-
Hey everyone, this is Andy Slamans from Amazing Freedom. This is the 100 real seller series. If you haven’t had a chance yet, I encourage you to go back and watch the previous episodes. We’ve had some phenomenal Amazon sellers.
And the reason we started this series is we want to bring before you real folks who are in the nuts and bolts and in the trenches actually really selling on Amazon. You know, YouTube is awesome. Facebook is awesome, but unfortunately, it creates a platform that can allow a lot of folks to talk about selling on Amazon or you know, sell courses about selling on Amazon, but they themselves don’t actually sell on Amazon. So a lot of times that misinformation can be misleading.
What we want to be able to show you and tell you through these 100 real seller interviews is that it’s not all unicorns and rainbows as Amazon sellers, as brand builders. Or if your business model is online arbitrage, retail arbitrage or wholesale – each of those has challenges. And unfortunately, Amazon sales channel is so powerful that there are a number of people that can get lucky on Amazon really with any of those business models including Private Label because they drive such massive traffic.
But what we want to do is we want to bring you 100 real sellers who have transitioned from that phase of luckiness, you know, of just choosing a product, slapping it up on Amazon and immediately getting sales. And there are still a lot of sellers that do that to that next level where you transitioned from being just lucky to actually begin building a real business that has real value. And so the past interviews have been awesome.
Andy: Today we’re joined by Geoffrey Vallance, who again is going to bring you the real nuts and bolts and in the trenches information about building brands on Amazon. Geoffrey, thank you so much for joining me today. I’ll say this before I allow you to introduce yourself. I actually had an opportunity, I believe it was about six months ago. Geoffrey came to my area and I had a great time with him in my home. Around the table, drinking some coffee. I think we spent two or three hours together with my wife, super impressed at the brand that Geoffrey’s been able to build on Amazon. He’s continuing to build that out. And I’m sure we’ll get into that a little bit today. So, Geoffrey, thank you so much for joining us and I do want to say Happy New Year.
Happy New Year. Thank you very much for having me Andy. And looking forward to what’s to come.
All right, awesome. So what we’d like to do is, the first question basically is share with us how you first heard about Amazon and then, how long you’ve been selling on Amazon.
Yeah. So many years ago about 2014, you know, my wife and I were looking to – the job I was in wasn’t probably going to go anywhere and we saw the writing on the wall, but, it wasn’t going to provide for my family longterm. And we really wanted like a freedom of time or freedom of finances. And so we tried a few things. You know, like some MLM stuff and stuff like that and got pretty, you know, discouraged?
Which MLM did you try?
I don’t want to out people here, you know? So the one, the main one we tried with Isagenix, the shakes, but,ou know, at, and my wife’s dabbled in things like Mary Kay and oil stuff and things like that. And we realized that it really wasn’t for us. I mean,just our personality types and we, we really to, you know, we really kind of valued friendships. That’s kind of mean to the people.
No, you know, it’s interesting that you bring that up because, I’ve met a number of Amazon sellers like that was kind of the progression, you know like they were doing MLMs and just kinda got burnt out on always having to reach out to family and friends, right? They wanted to create a business and so it was a natural transition. So it’s interesting for you to say that.
Right? I mean, yeah, we lost friendships from it as well. You know, it was like, no, we’re not pressuring anybody, but we’re probably the least pressured people that you could meet. But yeah, so we started, you know, praying being Christians, you know, we just pray for a while and then a friend of mine posted something on Facebook just like, Hey, I made like a quarter of a million dollars selling on Amazon last year. Does anyone want to know how I did it? And so I was like, sure. Quote a million dollars. That’s good. And so kind of signed up and yeah, kind of went from that. He started just kind of training us bit by bit in, in our patrol.
And who was that?
Uh it was Zach Young.
Yeah. I was wondering how our connection came about. Yeah, I love that.
Yeah. So yeah, I don’t know if he’s, he’s in it anymore. He’s gone to other entrepreneurial ventures, but yeah, I love him. And he was basically the one that showed me how to like, manually, this is before, you know, software like Tactical Arbitrage, and OaxRay, I think, and stuff that were out there. So it was like two or three hours of videos, like live going through well this is how source product from Amazon through Arbitrage basically.
GEOFFREY’S JUMP INTO AMAZON
So at the beginning of 2015, I kind of jumped in with we had a bit of a tax return so we could jump in and kind of start doing that and pretty quickly actually we saw that private label was the way to go. I think probably around that time, Zach had connected with you, and you were able to, you know, teach us some things. So how I got into private label was you know, over the years started kind of building my OA business while doing.
When did you leave your full-time job?
Yeah, so I left my full-time job. Where are we now? We’re in 2019 of 2020. Sorry. so yeah, 2016, I think.
Wow. You’ve been selling then for about 18 months and you’re like, okay, this thing is real, let’s go all in.
Yeah. So actually I’ve been in 2017 thinking about it now, but it, yeah, it was like my OA business was doing well enough that we could, that I could quit my job. And the idea being, yeah, I was working so much on the OA business and I had a nine to five – probably a mistake that I made at the time in hindsight was I probably should have just kind of let the OA business go and completely focus on doing something Private Label.
But, the original vision was, okay, quit my job and then I can take those hours that I was doing and put them into Private Label. So we did that. And took your guys’ course and basically I – and this isn’t a plug for a course or anything. But I know that you and Liran and Nathan and your team have pretty much taught me almost everything I know about Private Label. And, so soon after we moved, I quit my job started doing a Private Label research kind of here and there and realized I needed to there was an opportunity for me to connect with someone to kind of basically mentor me in getting my Private Label stuff off the ground. So and it was, I think you probably even had him on here – Craig Soderdahl.
He’s a phenomenal seller.
Yeah. Great guy. We had many hours of chatting together over private label.
So let’s just address this real quick, because a lot of people are like opposed to paying for courses or paying for coaching. I’ve always believed in it. I believe it shortens a learning curve. So this was private coaching that you reached out to Craig or he reached out to you, you paid the money and you know, I’ve heard you share this before and it was extremely valuable.
Yeah. I mean, it wasn’t cheap and that’s not, you know, on Craig and or anyone else. You know, it was one of those things where it was like, whoa, this is a, this is a real stretch for me. Even originally purchasing your guys’ course and like courses prior, like every kind of incremental step I’ve done with like moving towards private label, it’s always been like, oh, can I stretch this? And you know, and I have made, not with you guys or, or with Cray or anything, but I have occasionally made purchases where it’s like, oh, that really didn’t help, you know, in other – shall we say, forms of selling on Amazon and stuff. And so there’s always a little bit of trepidation with that. But yeah, I mean each time, it’s always hurt a little bit, but it’s also, I think having to, having that there has also like, you paid for something, so you want to get the most out of it, right?
So, tell us about – cause I know you share with me – I think you guys were both kind of looking together for potential products, right?
Yeah. So we, we kind of went with your, sourcing format on how to do that. And so I spent, I was able to kind of push away to the side or have someone kind of work on it for me while I exclusively sourced. So I just sat myself in my office and said, okay, nine to five, even though I’m not on a nine to five job anymore, like I was going to force myself to look for product and you know, through the sourcing methods that you say and you know, whether that’s a rabbit trailing, you know, on Amazon or looking through viral launch.
I’m just thinking like getting back to Craig and yeah – so were you, were you working with him too? Like looking for potential products?
Yeah, so it was like a mentoring kind of. He took three people under his wing and for a number of months actually. So we would like FaceTime once a week. At the beginning, we would have like maybe a half dozen, a dozen people that he was working with and we would meet maybe once a month on that and kind of just explore the things we needed to be looking at. And yeah. So I would take my nine to five and basically do all my sourcing, like figuring out what the product, what products look had potential.
And then I would bring them to Craig and we would have like an hour or two on Skype and I would say, okay, here’s my top five or 10, that I think are really good potentials. And then he would shred them apart. He would, you know, he would see things that maybe I wouldn’t see initially being, even though I’d done the courses and stuff, you know, I remember submitting some things to you guys and it was like garlic presses and lemons, stuff like that.
That to me is a huge value. Like, you know, whatever mentoring you know, you get or whatever course, if, you know, if you’re newer to private label, if you’re able to submit like potential products and they’re able to give you feedback. I mean, I literally can save sellers thousands of dollars,
Thousands, tens of thousands, you know.
I always tell people my first product was silicone spatula sets and you know, if, if I had a mentor to be able to share who had been selling for a while, they would have told they would have put a big red light up and said, no way, right?
THE JOURNEY TO FINDING THE RIGHT PRODUCT
Right. And it took like two or three months really of searching and kind of rabbit trailing. In the meantime, you know, I’m setting up the business as well. And so it’s not like, you know, maybe 30, 30 to 40 hours of research. I was pretty focused on it. And then one day where it kind of, you know, looking at what I’ve gotten and I’ve gotten better at finding stuff and some of it was maybe, you know, like too expensive for me to start with and stuff.
I had a budget and we came across a product and you know, I was looking at something else thinking, oh well this one is better than what we’re looking at. And Craig was like, no, look at this. It’s like we pulled up all the details and viral launch and everything and it looked like it was going to be a really big hit. So, or at least, you know there’ll be a good starter product. So, and I was initially like, I don’t know, you know, it’s not it wasn’t something I was passionate about, you know which I think is the, and you probably discussed it before, but like you might be passionate about horseback riding or whatever, but you know, there might be, it’s in the numbers, right? There’s no demand for it, maybe on Amazon.
So getting over, you know, I think one of the things when looking for a private label product is kind of like getting out of your system, like the things that you think are going to be good to start with, right? You know, this is a popular product, this fidget spinner is great, I can do this, know, and then you start researching. You realize, well everyone, my mom is doing that. And then you know, and when you dig down deeper and deeper and get better at finding products and stuff.
So you’re searching with him and you’ve discovered this product in this niche. It was in something that I think that you hadn’t sold, you know, and before, right? So you get the confirmation from Craig and he’s like, yeah, look, you know, we think this is a great product, so boom, you go to work, right? And this is kind of like a private-label baby.
Yeah. So then I, you know, start getting on Alibaba and like looking for manufacturers basically. And you know, that took a little while too – I know you’re a big proponent of getting on Skype and everything. My productivity is more in the morning than the evening, so I’m getting, getting up and, you know, staying up in the evening to like chat with these. I did. You know, I did more at the beginning than I do now because I have manufacturers, we can just email back and forth a little bit and it’s pretty much doesn’t speed anything up now, being live with them but yeah.
And so you know, probably have four or five manufacturers that gave me quotes and I’ve kind of went with the one, it was actually a little higher than most of the other ones, but that communication was much better. And in hindsight with that, you know, I found the with sometimes the cheapest isn’t the best. So we’ve had, we’ve had products come in like samples and stuff and the things they give us are like, like have visible dirt on them, you know, and it’s like, you’re meant to be impressing me right now. This is dirty. I had one recently and they were like, well, we can’t guarantee any less than 20% defect on there, you know, like 20% of them are going to be dirty. And I’m like, how do you know? That’s crazy. But…
Well, I see some new people jumping on here. So this is Geoffrey Vallance, he’s been selling on Amazon since 2015. I started selling in a similar way to many of the folks that are in our audience. He started selling with online arbitrage and then progressed basically to private label. He actually has a, a second account and he’s kind of winding down his online arbitrage business. He’s been building its private label brand, I believe since like 2017, 2018 or maybe it was 2018 that you started.
CREATING A BRAND
So he’s got a great brand. I was able to spend three hours with them here at home about six months ago. He’s at a level now where he’s profiting you. I, we’ll say profiting between eight and 12,000 a month. And obviously some months are very different. And so, you know, he’s having great growth. He’s got a great niche. Like anything though when I talked to other sellers there, there comes a time and let’s talk about this a little bit Geoffrey, where, you know, you kinda hit that, that point and it becomes a real business.
So when you got a real business, you deal with real business issues, you know, like cashflow you know, like placing more orders, like inventory projections, you know, understanding like, okay, you know. Whether you Airship or boat ship, it’s gonna land at this date and then I really only have 15 days before I have to wire another 20%, you know, to get, and so, you know. I know those are the constant issues that we are struggling with now as we’ve moved down to the phase that we’re, you’re just lucky.
Moving it into it’s a real business and now you have to start treating it with those real business issues. And so, you know, talk to us a little bit about those struggles of those challenges, like with inventory management, you know, have you been able to avoid stocking out how, how do you handle inventory projections? You know, because really, you know, you and I, you know, with a brand that I’m building with my nephew Nate, we’ve only been building it for 18 months and it’s still kind of in startup mode.
And so you’re introducing new products to the marketplace and you don’t know necessarily how fast those products are going to sell or how slow they’re going to sell. And so, you know, you’re just kinda testing and then trying to figure that out. So talk to us a little bit about that.
Yeah, so then, it was pretty quick actually that I hit my first problem, my first product, I bought like a thousand units of it. I’m thinking I’m going to start low even though it costs me more to obviously do that. And it sold out within like three months and I could see the, you know, after like a month I’m like, wow, this is selling way better than I was expecting. But I don’t, ah, man, I don’t know if I have the cash flow to like totally get another order yet.
Cause even that first order was really pretty, pretty expensive for me at the time. And I’m seeing, I sell about half of it and I’m like, okay, I really need to do something here. So so yeah, some of my first issues were selling too quickly, which is a good issue to have. And then obviously cashflow. But with, with the cashflow part, I was able to I, I took my first product and basically use that as like a Guinea pig, you know, if I can make the flesh out everything you know, of anything bad, you know, at the manufacturer happens, then I know, you know, learned some lessons there.
But it actually went pretty smoothly and until this point. But it, it gave me a good platform that I was able to talk to some private investors basically my inlaws and say, Hey look, would you be willing to invest in some way, whether that was through like a personal loan or like some interest in the business and stuff like that. So so we worked something out and they were able to fund some of you know, that and on the next lines of products and stuff. So
That’s a great point. I just want to draw that out a little bit. So yeah, we’ll do that. Are listening on the podcast. So if you’re watching this live, I promise you that if, if you begin to build your brand and you actually find a product that is successful, you are going to face this issue of how am I going to manage my cashflow and am I going to need to seek out capital, you know, to, to fund those logistical and those cashflow issues. And so very creative way.
That’s always my first recommendation. Like, you know, once you find a product that’s selling the margins there, you know, you can show the numbers. You know, if you want to go to a bank, a local bank, that’s fine. You know, it’s something that a lot of people don’t do anymore. And then, you know, my second option is then reach out to, to family. You know, folks that are in a, in a situation, you know, financially where they have some capital in the bank and look at the bank, they’re only making 2 to 3%.
If that’s you know, on their interest and if they’re willing to believe in you, they understand the business and they’re willing to take that risk, you know, that’s a great way then to be able to infuse capital into your business. So again, like this is a longterm mindset that a lot of Amazon sellers, because a lot of us didn’t run businesses before we started selling on Amazon, you know, like you need to understand and think about that when you start having a successful product, it’s a great thing, but it doesn’t mean that these real business issues like cash flow, inventory, production projection logistics, those aren’t going to get any easier. As your business grows, it just means that they get kind of more expensive than the numbers get higher. So that’s a great way, I think, to be able to seek out, too, to provide a cushion and work through those issues.
Yeah, definitely. And it’s like, you know, if you, if you have a good product and it’s, you know, making good money and good profit and you can back up, you know, the kind of future products with, with some of the data as well, you know, not, not kind of guessing, you know, like, Oh Hey, this is going to make $1 million in a year. You know, we’re going to be millionaires and stuff. But with some true numbers, you know and particularly if it’s somebody you know, you know, related to or whatever, you can be pretty transparent with like your difficulties and, and all that stuff. And that I think helps go a long way. So
Let’s shift gears a little bit, share a little bit about what some of your struggles are. So again, you’ve got your business to like this level right here, you know, to, you know, again, a real business terms. Like you’re at first base, your profit is awesome, right? But now you’re trying to move to the next level. What are, what are some things that you are doing as the CEO, right? As the founder that, that are trying then to now you’re trying to just level up.
Right. So there’s a, there’s a few things that are the struggles always real sometimes. You know, one thing is I can’t, you know, I came to realize pretty quickly I can’t do it all myself. You know things like especially once, you know, you start getting into like several products you know, advertising for example, is just a beast. You know, it’s, it’s a job in and of itself, you know, trying to keep all the keywords together. You know if you’ve got a design packaging right, you know are you now, thankfully I’m fairly okay at like fudging things with within design and stuff like that. But you know, is it, is it worth my time to just spend like 10 hours doing it myself or pay someone to do it in an hour or whatever. So so
So it’s advertising, do you outsource your advertising?
Yeah. So until maybe six months ago, I didn’t, and then I realized that it was taken me two or three days. You know, cause I’m, I was a bit of a perfectionist so it would take me a number of days kind of going through every single keyword, like figuring out the computations, what I’m competing against and all that stuff. Liran…
Right. Yeah. That and that was, that was definitely a plan plug cause that’s.. Liran, who we partnered with I think is just the absolute genius optimizing campaigns and advertising so that’s great.
And it came to a point where it was like, okay, I was kind of spiraling out of control with some costs on advertising as well. Cause you know, on the one hand you want to be number one on it, on an, excuse me. But on the other hand, it’s like for something I products and margin wasn’t there. So in talking with Liran and, and his team, they were able kind of bring those costs down, but keep my at least keep my sales as they were. And in some cases go up.
So what I hear you saying is you’re really trying to outsource the things that you can outsource and you’re doing that to allow you more time to do what?
So I see, I feel like my strength in, in the business I have is, is the creating part and kind of the sourcing and kind of, you know, the fun, the fun stuff as I see it. You know, the original goal. Yeah. Product development. The thing that I was when we originally started was like to try and automate as much as possible. You know, so utilizing FBA heavily having someone do the graphic design, obviously, you can’t do all of that all at once unless you have like a hundred thousand dollars just sitting there waiting to be spent. So you know, incrementally, I’ve, I’ve been able to do that but also have to be self-aware that ok you know, like with advertising, I’ve been doing it for so long and I’m, I’m, I’m okay at it, you know. But now it’s time I need to let it go. Right. So
Interesting hearing like over the last interviews that I’ve done with other sellers, it seems like primarily the biggest responsibility that founders are, you know, the CEOs of their brands, they see themselves as the best use of their time is in product development right now. Finding those new products or building out that current line and they’re really trying to outsource the rest of it, which to me makes all the sense in the world.
Yeah. I mean, doing the product development, you know, as you add more SKUs, hopefully, that’s going to expand your business and grow your business. Whereas writing copy for Amazon pages, well, you know, it’s, it’s essential and it will kind of, to some degree help grow your business. You know, if you are a creative person or an entrepreneurial person and I can really kind of stifle creativity and like kind of thought processes I’ve found at least with, you know, expanding your business and growing in parts.
What’s interesting to me about that is when you just first start out selling on Amazon, you decide you want to build a brand or you want to start on private label. The biggest question usually is like, what product am I going to sell? Right? That’s when you’re a total newbie. And then, you know, like us, like me, I, we’re building, I have a brand for five years now I’m continuing to add another one. I’m building with my nephew Nathan, 18 months. That question is still at the forefront of what is the new product we’re going to, you know? Yeah.
That’s the challenge. Like I feel like that’s another, going back to your original question in this section like that’s another challenge that we face. Although it’s a more fun challenge to some degree because, you know, it’s kind of more of a creating kind of thing. But like when you hit, you know, say you’ve got five SKUs out there and you’ve kind of maxed out, say it’s like colors or a tee shirt or something like that, you know and you’ve got a good hit. Like what is the next, the next step? You know, I found for me sometimes it was bundling your products, sometimes is a good way to kind of bleed out some more margins. And there’s obviously dozens of different ways you could kind of expand outside of Amazon if you wanted.
And Facebook marketing you can go the full nine or whole nine yards, but you know, so that’s another challenge really is like you said, like I think, you know, trying to be a few steps ahead as well, thinking like longterm. Okay. Like for me personally, I probably have like another 10 products kind of within my niche that I could do. But obviously cashflow and time for me right now is, is the thing, but always thinking, okay, what’s the next thing? You know, what? And maybe I’ll come across something that’s better than those 10 things within my niche before, you know, I’m able to design any or create or, you know, whatever, any of those things. So so yeah, always like thinking, okay, what’s, what’s the next thing there? You know? So, yeah. Anyway.
Oh yeah. So we have some new folks joining on here. So those of you that are just joining on, if you’re listening on the podcast, we’re talking to Geoffrey Vallance. He’s a seasoned Amazon seller in our space and sound since 2015 has a great private label brand that he is building out. Again, the series is 100 real sellers and we’re doing this to let folks know it’s not all unicorns and rainbows. It is very easy to get lucky on Amazon. It is much more difficult to build a real business on Amazon. So we hope that you are enjoying these interviews. Geoffrey, we like to keep these to about a half-hour or less because in our Americanized culture, most people lose their attention and about five seconds. And so here’s the last question that I have for you. Someone is new that are listening or watching this maybe for the first time and they’re just getting into private labeling or brand building or selling on Amazon. Oh, what’re some words of wisdom that you would give? Cause, unfortunately, like many businesses, folks will start out and, you know, they’ll hit some potholes and they end up quitting. Like what, what are some things that you would share?
Yeah, I’d say buying people kind of in an inner circle that will encourage you to the kind of belief in the same vision you believe in. And you know, they might not understand it all. Like my wife, she believes in what I do, but she doesn’t understand three-quarters of what I talk about sometimes. But you know, on those days where you get so discouraged because like, Oh, I can’t find a product. You know, it took me three, three months about to find my first product.
And there were days where it was like, so discouraging. You know, I’m sitting there, I’m feeling tired. Like, why can’t I find the right thing? And you know, finding people in your inner circle if you can, if you can afford it, you know, you have to pay for it. Find a mentor that’s good in that, you know, at least a few steps ahead of you in private label that can kind of guide you in those things. Ultimately it’s about not, not ever giving up, right? So even if it takes you six months, you know don’t, don’t, and also don’t discourage like the base hits, right? So like you might get something and it makes like 500 or a thousand dollars profit. That’s, Hey, that’s, that’s a win, right?
Because you’ve learned the logistics of how to get that product to market and you’ll be stronger for it. In the long run, obviously, if you have, you know, a product that you can expand to 10 different SKUs, then you know, you’ll know 10 times a thousand is 10,000. Right? So if you can, if you can do those base hits you know, and yeah, so I would just encourage everyone not to, not to give up, to keep persisting, get, get laser-focused.
But at the same time, enjoy, enjoy life as well. Right? you know, once you get that product in and like take a step back and see, you know, you’ve created something, you’ve brought it to market, even if it only takes 500 to $1,000 you know, you’ve done something and you will be stronger for it. And but I would highly encourage people to get, you know, just a small circle of trusted people that you can either bounce ideas off of or you know, when you’re having a rough day that, you know, they’ll be able to kind of pick you up and get you motivated again. And you know, continuing to watch these videos and listening to the podcasts as well. You know, I’ve heard the real Amazon sellers you know, I’m sure almost everyone you interview right has gone through like a ton of hassle and trouble trying to get their products to market. And I’m sure they at some point a question, you know, is this the right thing? But you know, it’s, it’s worth it when you get to the, to the finish line there. So.
Awesome. Well, thank you very much. Again, this is the hundred real sellers, or we’re going to be bringing you many more over the next 52 weeks. And we’re doing this because we want to show, it’s not all unicorns and rainbows, but at the same time, we also are bringing new real sellers to let you know that there are real folks like Geoffrey and myself who are supporting our family 100% by the products that we’ve been able to build and private label on Amazon.
So if you’re watching this on Facebook or even if you listen on a podcast, I encourage you to go to my personal Facebook wall. I just made a post that Amazon, put out a great news article and video about this little town in Iowa that has five or six full-time brand builders who’ve all decided they didn’t know each other, but they all live in this small little town and they’re building amazing brands using the Amazon sales channel. And so, you know, I know my partner Nathan and I, we believe 100%. We’ve been able to build a brand over just the last 18 months to over a million dollars in sales.
Our projected sales for 2020 are 3 million, and we think we will triple that in 2021 so we hundred percent believe in the Amazon sales channel, while at the same time understanding that there’s a lot of folks that make noise, but they don’t really understand that this is a real business or they’ve never transitioned from that luck phase to making it a real business. So we want to bring you folks who are, who are either in that transitioning period or have already surpassed that and they’re building and bringing that up.
So I encourage you to go back, watch the rest of the interviews. If you’ve enjoyed this interview, if you have a question for Geoffrey, I encourage you, drop it below. I know Geoffery is transparent, he’s vulnerable, and he will take time to answer any question that you may have. He shared earlier, he was able to collaborate with Craig Soderdahl and was in a mentoring program.
Geoffrey paid Craig and Craig helped him tremendously as he started out on this journey. I know myself personally, I have depended heavily on folks who are more seasoned to me and understood selling on Amazon as well as private labeling. And that’s been a huge benefit for me as I’ve been growing this business. So make sure comment below if you’re watching this on YouTube, the same thing. Any questions you have, drop on below. Hit the light button if you’re enjoying these and we’ll see you next time as we interview another real seller on the 100 on the amazing freedom 100 real seller interview series.
Geoffrey, thanks a lot so much. I’m going to let you get back to your day and continue building your brand. Take care.
