    Sourcing from china is wayyy tougher than people think. definetly spot on about needing to find a distributor and not an agent. Import/export in general needs to be done in BULK.

    Ed, we’ve got more coming on the topic.  Next week’s episode is with Matt K. from the DC.  He’s been living in China for 7 years exporting and acting as an agent.

    Thanks for the mention, guys!  Would love to hear about more failures you guys have had.  Other than just being nosy…I think those types of stories to provide value to us readers/listeners. But screw us…being able to analyze your failures will help you call attention to what actually went wrong and avoid those mistakes in the future too.

    i think it’s possible for us to dig up a few more fails….
