This week’s episode is one of the most promising and immediate opportunities for starting a business on the internet.

Dan and Ian have spoken at length about Amazon on this show in the past. Time after time, they have heard stories of success from other entrepreneurs.

A year ago, they explored some of these on an episode that was one of the most popular and controversial we’ve ever done.

Kevin Graham joined us for that one. He runs a portfolio of almost 60 Amazon product review websites, and is the founder of Bulk Buy Hosting. Kevin agreed to speak with us again today, along with Coran Woodmass, whose company TheFBABroker.com brokers Amazon based eCommerce businesses.

On today’s show, Kevin and Coran discuss the types of successes that people are having on the platform, the criticisms of Amazon based businesses, and what kind of opportunities exist in this marketplace for entrepreneurs of all types.

    Awesome episode guys! We have been dabbling with the Amazon affiliate program and have been wondering if we should dive a little deeper. It was great to hear some very constructive information from Kevin and the ‘double edge sword’ approach of the podcast.

    Can’t wait for the next episode!

    PS. Belated Happy Birthday!

    Middle age is 40-59 – straight up. Definitely feel a little older at 37, but still am young in many ways!
