How To Keep The Fire of Ambition BURNING!!

There is no success without motivation and the will to pursue one’s goals. Ambition is the principal factor when it comes to growth and evolution of any business. In the absence of ambition, you wouldn’t want to improve, you wouldn’t even have the drive to start a business, heck, you wouldn’t even be reading this article! So if you got here, then for sure, you are on the right path.

Ambition pushes us to venture into an enterprise and it is still ambition that drives us to expand and grow that enterprise. When a business is going through tough times (this is inevitable 🙁 ), your desire for success AKA ambition is what will sustain you and your business and keep things together.

If you lack determination and ambition, you are prone to give up when faced with obstacles. It is a known fact that those who give up never succeed.

So the key question to ask now is how do you fire up ambition with regards to your business?

Well… let’s see…

  • Try to remember why you went into business: the ability to recollect the reason for venturing into business serves as a good source of motivation. Was it the shitty attitude of a bad boss? Or your friends or enemies telling you that you wouldn’t amount to anything good? Or maybe you are just an independent person who wouldn’t want to work for anybody.. Whatever your reason may be, remembering them will help keep you focused on your goals, in other words, it will keep you ambitious!

 

  • Analyze your goals: ensure to keep track of your goals, know how far you’ve come and what you’ve accomplished and what you haven’t. Could you have done things differently? Would you have had different results? Analyze this data extensively, make new plans for moving forward. This would keep you optimistic about the future.

 

  • Count your blessings: During hard times, it is not easy to stay motivated or optimistic, but this is absolutely necessary! Even if you haven’t hit your $1 billion goal yet, you should still try to appreciate your successes, no matter how small they are. Celebrate yourself and remain positive. No matter how little you might have accomplished, always remember that tiny drops of water make a mighty ocean.

 

  • Networking with like-minded individuals: Contrary to what some people think, networking with individuals that are in the area of your business is actually a great thing. Having a network of like-minded people will help to motivate you and spur you to success. We recognize the importance of this and have created an amazing group for guys in the e-commerce niche to get together, share problems, solutions and give motivational testimonies. Head over to sells like hot cakes WALL to learn more.

In the pursuit of our desires, giving up is often the easier thing to do, but the merits of determination, ambition and focus completely outweigh the temporary relief that comes with giving up; which is preceded by only one thing… Regret.

With the tips above, you can stay motivated and ambitious enough to bring all your dreams to reality!

Great idea George.. The best thing is shopify is not just for dropshipping! You can sell your own products and even fullfill by amazon for your shopify sales. Check ByteStand and several other apps for AMAZON integration into shopify

Welcome Sarah!! Try musefind, tapinfluence, tomoson, famebit. also check Groundsignal, socialchain , Shoutcart.
Or reach personally specific top influencers via their contact forms/fb messaging/youtube etc. Most have already ads department and managers to handle that.

For me works best reaching influencers directly.. I never had much luck with those paid services, they are just a middleman.

When running a promotion, what is the recommended discount for the sale to count as a verified review and feed the amz algorithm?

Amazon does not reveal exact cutoff data for "verified" vs "unverified". some people say it's 50% but it's a wild guess. It does not matter really. Don't overthink it Father.

I give minimum of 80% off. Keeps buyers happy and many reviews coming (WITHOUT asking even with new policies all ok).

Hai, I am obsessed with online business. I have bought some e-commerce affiliate software, that is completed with with Youtube video review for every product I added. The e-commerce is linking to social media. It covered three affiliate : Amazon, Ebay, and Ali express. Organic traffic is about 8,000 visitors in 3 months, but ZERO affiliate hit. No sales. Then yesterday I saw this system. Here claimed can get usd 45,000/month if we follow all the guide. My question, if we just started with Shopify, and we follow the guide, is it possible to get that number? By some posting I read, the contribution is more come from FBA instead of Shopify. Nice to meet you all here.

Glad to have you here. There are many shops on shopify that are doing much more than 45k, it's a pretty modest number but after couple of years you should be doing much more than that. just take your time to learn!

Hello Im a fresh rookie Im a little confused on the Goal of 45,000.00 .....It reads...."Our goal is to make at least $10 per product per sale and at least make 10 sales per
day from each product, which means from five products, we are going to make
$45,000 at least per month plus your Shopify store profits and, of course, minus the
cost of sales, production, shipping and advertising. Our estimated profit is $45,000
per month. Well you can’t live with that but you would agree it’s a good start "

Is that goal only when you start with Amazon, or still good if you take the Shopify to start with...?

Welcome Andres. $10 per product per sale and 10 sales is a universal rule of thumb for any ecommerce store. 10-10 rule some people call it. It's same rule no matter if you start shopify or amazon or even better BOTH channels combined.

Great quetion from Nasim, i wanted to share it and then my response. "This course is really inspiring me to open my own store. Can you give me one more suggestion. From your experience which one you think is better a specific product type or mixed product stores? "

There is no specific answer to this. You know Amazon itself is "everything store" and they are very successful. At the same time a lot of shopify stores are "one product only" or "one niche only". If you target specific niche (like pugs lovers, pug owners for example) then your store should have only products for pugs, because if they see the product for bulldog, they will be frustrated and leave). I hope it helps, but there is no RIGHT or WRONG way here.

I would suggest

1. If you go with "everything store" then research top competitor everything stores and make sure to sell similar products by similar prices. This will reduce chance of failure.

2. If you go specific niche, again use competitor spy tools and find out best selling products in competitor stores and duplicate them.

Super exciting news guys! I just came from the Sellers Summit conference in Miami, it’s the biggest Amazon seller conference in USA organized by Steve Chou

?I had a unique chance to see in person and to talk and listen to the industry leaders such as Greg Mercer (the creator of Jungle Scout), Scott Voelker (the creator of The amazing seller podcast) and of course Manuel Becvar, the creator of ImportDojo and Number 1 Best selling Amazon Course on Udemy.

I had also a chance to talk to Manuel after the session and even made a short video interview where he is going to share his secrets and insights on how to choose the right product and avoid getting scammed. Once I get back home from the trip, I will edit and release the video, really great stuff.
?
The conference was really amazing, a lot of great new strategies, tips and tricks on what is working RIGHT NOW on Amazon. However the biggest surprise for me was that most people have not started yet, they are stuck in the research phase and take too much time picking the product. That’s why I plan to release more videos with helpful tips and ideas on how to pick the right product, right from the start.

During the conference we had a great chance to talk to ex-amazon employees and see how it all works. The biggest thing you need to know is that Amazon is BOOMING right now and it is also cracking down on the shady sellers and scammers, that means you have a great timing to get started and take a piece of the 250 billion dollar industry! Don’t miss out and take action, the timing can’t be better!

Wait… You don’t have time to start ecommerce business? I heard that million times. Truth is, we all have same amount of time, it’s only about HOW you spend your time and what your priorities are. Setting your passive income should be the highest priority and will set you up for life. You don’t have to quit your job, just start it part time, in the evening, on the weekends and you will have a great passive income stream that will bring you money for years to come.

Today during the lunch break I talked to George, he started his coffee related business on Amazon just 7 months ago (on the side from his main job) but already making over $15,000 in sales every month. All is possible! He did not quit his job.. but he might soon

That’s why the best time to get started is right now!

Stay tuned for more videos and updates! And remember if you have any questions, let me know!

Mike
