Student Success: An $85,000 Boat Purchase After 2 Months
Written by Bashar Katou on August 14, 2018
n this video, I interview Zach Brown one of my students from North Carolina.


He’s been in my mentorship program for about two months and you’ll never believe the results he’s seen. 
 

After our short time working together, Zach was able to accomplish one of his own personal goals … he purchased an $85,000 boat with his income from Amazon!
The Interview
Bashar: As of right now, how many units are you selling a day on average?

Zach: A day on average, anywhere from 7-15. I think I’ve gotten as high as 21. I’m making an average of $13 profit on each unit I’m selling. I have three products I’m selling and getting ready to launch my fourth.

Bashar: That was actually my next question. How many products do you have … now, how long ago was it that you joined the mentorship?

Zach: About two and a half to three months ago.

Bashar: So you’re about a product and a half per month pretty much … which I haven’t even done that and I’ve been selling for over two years! That’s pretty awesome. That’s really incredible. I remember you telling me you were waiting on new products. I thought you had three, but now you have four and that’s amazing. So how long did it take you to launch your first product after the actual mentorship beginning?

Zach: Once I got everything into Amazon fulfillment center, I think it was maybe two and a half or three weeks. I did have the inventory shipped to my house first, that way I could personally check quality, things like that. Then I sent it off to Amazon, that probably took two or three days. I told you the first day, I even got in the inventory, I sold out.

Bashar: Yeah, that was incredible. I know you said you didn’t do a whole lot of giveaways or anything like that.

Zach: I did zero giveaways on my first product.

Bashar: Ok, you did no giveaways.

Zach: No reviews, everything was fully priced.

Bashar: Now let me ask you this, did you have any prior experience with selling on Amazon before you met me.

Zach: No absolutely not.

Bashar: What did you do before that?

Zach: Well, I’ve got a couple of income properties, rental properties, I’m also a FedEx driver. I juggle a few things. Then I started this and hopefully, in a year or two I’ll be able to quit FedEx.

Bashar: But you’re still with FedEx, right?

Zach: Yes.

Bashar: That’s amazing and that’s the thing I’m trying to explain to a lot of people.

Zach: You can do two or three different jobs and do this on the side and work different jobs. As long as you have your phone.

Bashar: Now let me ask you this, how much time do you spend selling on Amazon? Look, you’re doing a lot more than a normal beginner does. You’ve launched four products in under three months. So with that type of progress, how long do you spend per day on Amazon?

Zach: Per day … anywhere from 30 minutes to two and a half hours. It kind of varies depending on what I need to do.

Bashar: Right, absolutely. So it’s absolutely something someone could do on the side as you just said. You are a landlord and you have a full-time job, and you’re doing this on the side AND you’re having major success. Launching four products in three months, that’s not easy. I have students that don’t make that progress that quickly. You seem right on it. You like your product, we discuss it, and boom you’ve already ordered it. Which is great and that’s what a lot of people need to understand. You can’t just wait for me to hold your hand and guide you through.

Zach: Yes exactly. That’s one thing I figured out myself. You have to make mistakes. I’ve made mistake after mistake after mistake and just learned from it and just built on those mistakes.

Bashar: Exactly, you can’t let it hold you back. You’ve gotta keep going. Well, that’s awesome, let me ask you this … now how has selling on Amazon changed your life at all, do you see the potential for it, what is your plan, you know what have you accomplished in the past couple months and where do you see yourself in the next couple of years with selling on Amazon! 

Zach: What I’ve accomplished the last couple of months with Amazon, I’ve been able to put a down payment on that boat I just bought, which was $16,000.

Bashar: Now was $16,000 the cost of the boat or was that the down payment?

Zach: No, no, the down payment was $16,000 the boat was about $85,000.

Bashar: Wow, ok!

Zach: In the future, I hope to just keep growing and keep growing and just roll with it and see what happens.

Bashar: Now do you see this actually you know getting to six figures and maybe even getting to seven figures?

Zach: Yeah, you know that would be awesome. Obviously, I’m going to have to work for it, but that would be great.

Bashar: Absolutely, absolutely. Well, that’s awesome. Well listen, I know you’re a busy man so I don’t want to take up too much of your time, but I have one more thing for you and one more thing for all the people out there that I want them to understand. I hear about 50% of my students, and your colleagues that you see every day, that they join our mentorship and because they have experience with other gurus and they go and buy a course, and there’s really no communication. How have you found, and I’m not trying to promote myself, be brutally honest, how do you see communication with me and how has it helped you?

Zach: With you, it’s very hands on. It’s very one on one. It’s not like these other guys. Like I said, when I first met you, I had talked to other mentors. They were very kind of shoddy, I guess would be the word. Kind of hesitant to be one on one. With you, the price, you can’t beat the price for the product basically is what you are. The one on one help is absolutely the best.

Bashar: Absolutely! Well once again, I know you’re a busy man and I don’t want to take too much of your time. Once again, it’s been an honor and I can’t wait to see you explode!
