This week's episode represents 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 same ideas on an episode that was one of the most popular and controversial episodes we've ever done.

Kevin Graham joined us for that episode. 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 speak at great length about the types of successes that people are having on Amazon, the criticisms of Amazon based businesses, and what kind of opportunities exist in this marketplace for entrepreneurs of all types.

A few weeks ago on this podcast, Dan and Ian spoke about a failed negotiation that Ian went through when trying to purchase a car.

Ian has said many times that believed he could have closed that deal if he just used the right tactics.

Today's guest has spent a lifetime working on negotiating tactics, but he has primarily done so in matters of life or death.

Chris Voss is a former FBI hostage negotiator and the author of "Never Split the Difference".

Since leaving the FBI, Chris has devoted his time to a new business called Black Swan Ltd., which teaches people how to use the skills that he learned during his time as an FBI agent to improve their negotiation skills in business situations.

On this week's episode, you'll hear Chris go into great detail about emotional intelligence, how to choose the right language to use while negotiating, and why you should never split the difference.
