Sell on Amazon and start your own story today: http://amzn.to/1PtjzqF A former Google engineer builds a hugely successful business in smartphone charging accessories. Anker Tech July 1 of 2011. That’s the day I officially left Google. I got to work with all the great people on challenging problems (in a) great environment. People many times asked me: so, why did you leave Google? Well, actually, that dates back to 2009. My wife started selling on Amazon by drop-shipping. I helped actually to build a system for her to automate everything. It took me two months, evenings and weekends, to develop this system. Once the system is up, the selling was very fast. In months she was fulfilling three hundred orders per day. I quit Google and I went back to China to establish the company. So, Anker’s primary focus is on USB charging. On the Amazon Platform, we grew from about 1,000 orders per day about four years ago, to 20,000 to 30,000 orders per day now. We sold over 100,000 products in two days during last Thanksgiving season. Going through hyper-growth is like driving a car on the highway at, you know, 120 miles per hour, and still you want to change the wheels; you want to change the engine along the way. And that really takes careful planning, thinking, and discipline. The key to (building) high-quality and innovative products is to listen to the customers. Amazon reviews (are) actually the single most important input to our new product development process. We make sure that our new products start from the needs that customers expressed. As a Google alumnus, I sometimes compare my startup with the startups of, you know, the fellow Googlers. Mine is a lot less fancy, because all their startups were about mobile Internet, about social networks, about algorithms, and advanced systems. And mine is about, you know, just consumer products. What’s all the same was that we’re creating value. If you really focus on creating value for consumers, you’ll get there sooner or later.

Sell on Amazon and start your own story today: http://amzn.to/1S7kiEU A proud Penn State grad embraces the competition to help build a successful ecommerce business. SupplyTiger My journey as an entrepreneur began when I was born. I was the kid in my neighborhood that had the lemonade stand. So that’s sort of how I started getting money in my pocket. I started selling online in my dorm room. I looked to see what other people were selling and then tried to replicate that. Graduating from Penn State, two days later I started working as an industrial engineer in a factory in Pennsylvania. What we made was toner cartridges. They got the bright idea to send the factory to Mexico. So they selected me to go down to Tijuana, Mexico, and work with the engineers there to set up the factory. All through this time when I worked in Tijuana I was still selling online and working on my website. So when the time came that I was fed up working for the man, I was able to step back and start my own business. I started selling on Amazon in 2011. My business has grown ten times since then. If I could give one piece of advice, I’m saying, do your research. Go to trade shows—you could talk to two hundred suppliers in three days. Those guys are going to break you down, they’re going to tell you their successes, give you advice—you can learn from all these brilliant people. I’m inspired by other sellers as well. Ten years ago I thought that sellers were against me. I thought it was a war, one seller versus another, and that is not the case. We are all together in this in the same industry. We’re learning from each other, helping each other. The world is so big that there’s a piece of it for all of us.

Suzy was selling jewelry at a farmer’s market when a chance encounter her to Amazon Exclusives.

Sell on Amazon and start your own story today: http://amzn.to/1Uhe6rt An ambitious law student discovers she’s CEO material and takes the helm of a global sports & outdoors business. Friendly Swede “My name is Anna Nordlander. I started working for The Friendly Swede in 2012. I was studying law at the time and the founder of The Friendly Swede, John, contacted me. It was supposed to be a project, really—helping sort out the legal structure, etcetera. But as the company kept on growing, my role also kept on growing. “John asked me if I wanted to start working full-time. And I said, ‘well, you can have me for a year, because after that, I’ll become a diplomat.’ When I had handed in my master’s thesis in July 2013, I pretty much straight jumped on a plane, went down to Sydney, worked from a distance there. After a couple of months, I guess, I became a little bit restless. And I think John picked up on that. So he asked me—he was like, ‘So, Anna, how do you feel about becoming CEO?’ “I told him, ‘Okay, can you just hold on a little bit?’ I did a quick Google and said, okay, okay, what does a CEO do? Because I had absolutely no idea! And what came up was—luckily for me—a CEO talks to people. And I figured alright, well, I can do that. So I said yes, and I stepped up as CEO and moved back to Sweden to set up a headquarters. “So, we just decided that okay, let’s focus on sports and outdoors. We’re moving towards being the best sports and outdoors company there is. For us, that means bringing on the best people. Our management team consists only of women today. You should see all these young people; they’re amazing. They’re just, you know, juggling this massive business. I mean, we had a turnover of over 7 million U.S. dollars last year. “The Friendly Swede started selling on Amazon in 2011. 2012, we had a $4 million in sales. During 2015, we’re aiming for $12 million and we’re in seven marketplaces. “Our customers are the best product developers there are. We read every single review—good ones, bad ones. We take in all the feedback that we get and just constantly try to become even better. “It’s so important that you dare to try things. I often hear, especially (unfortunately) young women say stuff like, ‘Oh, I got this job offer, but I really—I couldn’t say yes, because I wasn’t good enough.’ Well, someone thought you were good enough, so why don’t you just say yes, go for it, see where it’ll take you? That’s what happened when I became CEO of The Friendly Swede at an age of 27.”

Amazon Marketplace seller Jin Chon was a practicing lawyer, and increasingly found it wasn’t for her: she wasn’t fulfilled and felt no passion in what she was doing. Her family had a clothing manufacturing business in L.A., which had become increasingly difficult to sustain—her brother suggested they she leave law and they transition the family business to ecommerce. They did just that, launching on Amazon in 2013, starting with memory foam pillows and other home products with the Coop Home Goods brand, then later with Mopnado, a retractable mop brand. The last three years they’ve seen explosive growth, and Jin has found that passion she once lacked: “I get to do a job where I make people happy and provide them things that make their life better.”

During his senior year of high school, Amazon Marketplace seller Jerry Kozak had his car broken into. When he received the insurance money, he spent it on a heat press for screen printing t-shirts. He and his business partner started producing t-shirts in their dorm room, eventually upgrading to a t-shirt printer that could barely fit in their apartment. With investments from friends and family, they continued to grow the business, enduring a slump in the 2008 recession. They launched on Amazon in 2012, and have grown that first year revenue of $1.5M to over $5M in 2016. For Jerry it’s about grit: “You learn that it's good to be smart but it is a lot better to be a hard worker.”

Sell on Amazon and start your own story today: http://amzn.to/1WC6123 An extra set of wheels inspires a delivery driver’s leap into a rapidly accelerating automotive venture. Driven Products My name is John Derringer. I’m the president of Driven Products, and I was born and raised in Seattle. When I was younger, I had an old Subaru station wagon that I was taking up snowboarding, and I needed a set of wheels for it, and found a guy on Craigslist that just so happened to have two sets of wheels, so I bought both sets. I put the other set online and sold it at a profit and said, ‘hey, I can make money doing this.’ And repeated that, eventually started buying wheels from the local car dealerships and selling those online, and then just kind of snowballed. So, in 2008, I started in my dad’s woodshed with 600 bucks. My dad didn’t think it was that great, so [I] moved to Public Storage and then that snowballed. And Public Storage didn’t like me getting freight delivered to Public Storage anymore, so we had to get a real warehouse. I was still working full-time and had a couple people working for me. My now-fiancée would—bless her heart—would come in. In the cold, because I was too cheap to pay for heat. So, she would come in and polish used wheels. She’s a bit of a saint for that. We’ll do several million dollars in sales this year. The amount that we’re accelerating on Amazon is several times the rate that we’re accelerating on other platforms. And I think product reviews are a huge contributor to that. You’ve got a shiny chrome lug nut and you’ve got a shiny chrome lug nut. If you’re not a scientist or an engineer, you really can’t tell the difference. Until someone buys a competitor’s product and three months later they get a one-star review because it’s already rusting and we’ve got 100, 140 five-star reviews because they don’t rust—that says something about the product. If we’re not keeping 99% of our customers happy, then we’re doing something wrong. The advice I give any entrepreneur is surround yourself with people that are smarter than you. The biggest impact on my business was actually getting a business coach. When you have someone that kind of is your ‘boss figure’ and says, you know, you should probably focus on this and not this, amazing things happen. Best money I ever spent in my entire life was on a business coach. And now we have a really specific view on where we want to go, things are going really well, and we’re growing like crazy.

Sell on Amazon and start your own story today: http://amzn.to/1K1HEJ6 A physician’s assistant trades in 12-hour shifts for a new perspective helping out her fellow dog lovers. My name’s Maggie Umlauf. I’m the CEO of Versaliving. What started this whole thing, basically, is I read a book by Tim Ferris called The 4-Hour Workweek, and that actually just changed my entire perspective. I was in the military right out of high school. You know, my family has worked blue-collar jobs basically our whole lives. So, this world of starting your own business was just this whole eye-opening experience for me. And I came home and I told my husband—I said, ‘I want to do this. I want to figure out how to do this.’ And he actually laughed at me and said, ‘Um, yeah, honey--everybody wants to do that.’ I was like, ‘Hmmm, challenge accepted. We have big, active, rowdy dogs, and basically we designed our products for people who are like us—you know, who take their dog in the car, who take their dog to the beach, who go hiking, who go to the dog park, and that sort of thing. So we really focused on making products that could really take that sort of abuse, and we’ve had the best customers ever. The growth has just been huge. We started this out of our home. I was a physician assistant working in trauma surgery. So, absolutely no business type of background. After the first year, I was able to quit my job. This second year we've more than doubled our sales. I now work full-time on the business, so I’ve gone from working 10- to 12-hour shifts in the hospital to—I now sit at a computer with the dogs at my feet most of the time. So, it’s been great. I literally tell everyone that I know, ‘You should start a business. Really and truly, what is holding you back?’ Where in the past, you never would have that opportunity, Amazon gives you that opportunity. So if you’re thinking about it, go for it. I mean—really and truly—you have to do it.
