00:00:00 00:00:04 what's up everyone Carter Maxwell here
00:00:02 00:00:07 and in this video I'll be kind of going
00:00:04 00:00:09 over you know my amazon selling journey
00:00:07 00:00:11 you know how was selling on Amazon has
00:00:09 00:00:13 just opened up all these opportunities
00:00:11 00:00:15 for me and really just changed my life
00:00:13 00:00:17 and I want to go through and you know
00:00:15 00:00:19 kind of inspire you motivate you and
00:00:17 00:00:22 possibly find a way how Amazon can
00:00:19 00:00:24 change your life as well so a big reason
00:00:22 00:00:26 that people watch me on YouTube you know
00:00:24 00:00:28 are subscribed to me and watch a lot of
00:00:26 00:00:30 my videos is that I'm having a lot of
00:00:28 00:00:33 success at 17 years old I mean I've been
00:00:30 00:00:35 signing on Amazon for just less than I'd
00:00:33 00:00:37 say around 2 years or so and I've
00:00:35 00:00:39 learned so much along the way and it
00:00:37 00:00:41 wasn't until about a year ago or I
00:00:39 00:00:42 actually you know started documenting
00:00:41 00:00:44 kind of my journey you know some
00:00:42 00:00:47 different tips or tricks that I had to
00:00:44 00:00:48 selling on Amazon as well also on my
00:00:47 00:00:50 youtube channel a service like a
00:00:48 00:00:52 motivational figure because all these
00:00:50 00:00:54 young kids or even older people you know
00:00:52 00:00:56 are coming on my channel I mean they're
00:00:54 00:00:58 viewing my content and seeing that you
00:00:56 00:01:00 know you don't have to go work you know
00:00:58 00:01:02 a traditional job you know 8 to 10
00:01:00 00:01:05 dollars an hour as a kid you know how to
00:01:02 00:01:07 at a restaurant or at a sporting event
00:01:05 00:01:09 or something like that like you can but
00:01:07 00:01:11 you can build something that can
00:01:09 00:01:12 financially you know keep you stable you
00:01:11 00:01:13 know every single day throughout the
00:01:12 00:01:15 month throughout the year you know
00:01:13 00:01:17 working your own time schedule and
00:01:15 00:01:20 that's why I think Amazon FBA is just
00:01:17 00:01:22 such is such an opportunity I mean you
00:01:20 00:01:24 literally have the option to be able to
00:01:22 00:01:26 sell your own products under your own
00:01:24 00:01:28 account on the largest retail website in
00:01:26 00:01:30 the world Amazon with millions and
00:01:28 00:01:33 millions of people's information already
00:01:30 00:01:34 input into their Amazon account where
00:01:33 00:01:37 they then have the option to you know
00:01:34 00:01:38 purchase your product with one quick
00:01:37 00:01:40 they can literally just hit the Buy Now
00:01:38 00:01:42 button in that product will be order two
00:01:40 00:01:44 day shipping to their door so when it
00:01:42 00:01:47 comes to selling you know on Amazon or
00:01:44 00:01:49 Ebay or all these other platforms I mean
00:01:47 00:01:51 you can do it at any age and that's a
00:01:49 00:01:52 big reason why I made this youtube
00:01:51 00:01:54 channel that's why I'm trying to put out
00:01:52 00:01:56 as many videos as I can because you know
00:01:54 00:01:58 I'm gonna build a personal brand around
00:01:56 00:01:59 myself that you know just represents it
00:01:58 00:02:01 you know you don't have to go work under
00:01:59 00:02:03 a traditional job you know you can build
00:02:01 00:02:06 your own financially freedom you know
00:02:03 00:02:07 lifestyle laptop lifestyle Wi-Fi
00:02:06 00:02:09 lifestyle you know where you can just
00:02:07 00:02:10 you don't have to leave your room you
00:02:09 00:02:13 know they'll leave your house and you're
00:02:10 00:02:15 still able to you know make residual and
00:02:13 00:02:17 come on the side or even as a full-time
00:02:15 00:02:19 income now when it comes to my Amazon
00:02:17 00:02:21 journey you know my whole
00:02:19 00:02:23 entrepreneurship journey started even
00:02:21 00:02:26 before Amazon like to eBay when I was
00:02:23 00:02:27 about 14 or 15 years old and I sold on
00:02:26 00:02:29 eBay for about two years now eBay is a
00:02:27 00:02:31 great platform and it's a great platform
00:02:29 00:02:33 you know for beginners tena learn
00:02:31 00:02:34 ecommerce you know how to how to create
00:02:33 00:02:36 a product listing how to do product
00:02:34 00:02:38 research and things like that but the
00:02:36 00:02:40 one thing that really stumped me with
00:02:38 00:02:42 eBay was just all the manual labor that
00:02:40 00:02:43 had to no go into you know like I was
00:02:42 00:02:45 constantly having to go out and source
00:02:43 00:02:47 different products and then the worst
00:02:45 00:02:50 part personally to me was having to
00:02:47 00:02:51 actually go you know find the product
00:02:50 00:02:52 wherever I was storing it and ship it to
00:02:51 00:02:55 the customer
00:02:52 00:02:57 now the big thing about Amazon FBA and a
00:02:55 00:02:59 huge reason that I you know moved to
00:02:57 00:03:01 Amazon FBA you no longer do eBay is
00:02:59 00:03:03 because you know Amazon fulfills
00:03:01 00:03:06 everything for you so you know as a kid
00:03:03 00:03:07 you know for myself you know still still
00:03:06 00:03:09 being in high school if you know eight
00:03:07 00:03:10 hours a day from 8 o'clock to you know
00:03:09 00:03:13 about 3 or 4 o'clock in the afternoon
00:03:10 00:03:14 and that doesn't even count the you know
00:03:13 00:03:16 extracurricular activities in the
00:03:14 00:03:17 evening that I have but you know when
00:03:16 00:03:19 you're wrapped up with school and
00:03:17 00:03:21 everything or maybe a full-time job like
00:03:19 00:03:23 a nine-to-five I mean there's very
00:03:21 00:03:24 limited time in the evening and it's
00:03:23 00:03:27 hard you know you're really really tough
00:03:24 00:03:29 and hard to pick up another job but you
00:03:27 00:03:31 know if you were to sell on eBay or
00:03:29 00:03:33 Amazon eBay you'd have to fulfill all
00:03:31 00:03:36 the orders Amazon fulfills them for you
00:03:33 00:03:38 on FBA so for instance I used to sell
00:03:36 00:03:39 chargers and stuff like that on eBay you
00:03:38 00:03:41 know I started to get twenty thirty
00:03:39 00:03:44 orders a day and it started just taking
00:03:41 00:03:46 a long time and I didn't I wanted to go
00:03:44 00:03:47 hang out with friends and experience all
00:03:46 00:03:49 this other stuff and was just taking a
00:03:47 00:03:50 lot of time you know an hour to an hour
00:03:49 00:03:52 half a day to be able to pack all this
00:03:50 00:03:54 stuff you know sometimes even longer if
00:03:52 00:03:57 I had you know like a random electronic
00:03:54 00:03:59 so and then I tried FBA and I sent an
00:03:57 00:04:01 Amazon shipment I think my first
00:03:59 00:04:03 shipment was like something basic like
00:04:01 00:04:05 75 to 100 iams
00:04:03 00:04:08 consisted of like some CDs video games
00:04:05 00:04:10 book and a few electronics and I sent it
00:04:08 00:04:12 all up to the Amazon warehouse where
00:04:10 00:04:14 they then store it and all of a sudden I
00:04:12 00:04:15 was starting to get you know sales are
00:04:14 00:04:17 trickling in and I was like you know and
00:04:15 00:04:19 I got to start shipping this stuff and
00:04:17 00:04:21 then I remembered like hey Amazon is
00:04:19 00:04:22 shipping all this stuff today shipping
00:04:21 00:04:24 to my customer for me like they're
00:04:22 00:04:25 dealing with the customer service
00:04:24 00:04:26 they're you know finding wherever
00:04:25 00:04:28 they're storing either shipping
00:04:26 00:04:30 to day customer shipping you know prime
00:04:28 00:04:32 shipping to that customer for me I just
00:04:30 00:04:35 have to make sure that the product
00:04:32 00:04:37 actually sells on Amazon so this is a
00:04:35 00:04:40 huge opportunity for anyone I mean if
00:04:37 00:04:42 you sell five items a day fifty items a
00:04:40 00:04:44 day a thousand items a day the process
00:04:42 00:04:45 you know the fulfillment on your side
00:04:44 00:04:47 for shipping is gonna be the same
00:04:45 00:04:49 because you don't do anything Amazon is
00:04:47 00:04:51 fulfilling it all for you so that's why
00:04:49 00:04:52 I mentioned like how you can just make
00:04:51 00:04:55 all this money in high school so wait
00:04:52 00:04:56 you know while I sit in high school for
00:04:55 00:04:58 eight hours a day no extracurricular
00:04:56 00:05:00 activities in the evening I'm still able
00:04:58 00:05:01 to make money I'm still able to make
00:05:00 00:05:03 money if I take a nap
00:05:01 00:05:05 I'm still able to make money and if I go
00:05:03 00:05:06 play basketball go swimming you know or
00:05:05 00:05:07 you know I go to a sporting event or
00:05:06 00:05:10 things like that
00:05:07 00:05:12 the reason people sell on FBA is it's
00:05:10 00:05:15 just a lot more fish and you have access
00:05:12 00:05:17 to millions and millions and millions of
00:05:15 00:05:19 buyers that are already buying and
00:05:17 00:05:22 purchasing things on Amazon so you know
00:05:19 00:05:24 discovering Amazon FBA and you know
00:05:22 00:05:26 building the business that I've built by
00:05:24 00:05:28 myself at the age of 17 being able to
00:05:26 00:05:31 utilize this program you know the Amazon
00:05:28 00:05:32 FBA program I mean it's been absolutely
00:05:31 00:05:34 life-changing to me but you know
00:05:32 00:05:36 everything wasn't always good everything
00:05:34 00:05:39 wasn't always going up and scaling in my
00:05:36 00:05:41 business you know I had my my fair share
00:05:39 00:05:44 of mistakes you know getting getting
00:05:41 00:05:45 scammed you know I'm going and ordering
00:05:44 00:05:47 products and then getting horrible
00:05:45 00:05:50 quality from suppliers you know
00:05:47 00:05:51 suppliers not communicating well or you
00:05:50 00:05:53 know doing doing not not doing the
00:05:51 00:05:54 proper product research you know
00:05:53 00:05:56 especially for my first product I mean
00:05:54 00:05:58 if I haven't heard the story man it was
00:05:56 00:06:00 a huge bust um you know I'm pretty sure
00:05:58 00:06:03 was like the my first two products
00:06:00 00:06:04 failed I mean on Amazon and you know I
00:06:03 00:06:06 lost a lot of money you know I was
00:06:04 00:06:08 really discouraged I was like is this
00:06:06 00:06:10 for me should I go back to ebay or
00:06:08 00:06:12 should I just you know quit this whole
00:06:10 00:06:14 entrepreneurship thing and finally like
00:06:12 00:06:16 I had one product click on one product
00:06:14 00:06:18 start selling well then after that I was
00:06:16 00:06:20 just scaling and you I kept learning
00:06:18 00:06:23 kept reinvesting back in the business
00:06:20 00:06:25 and just you know learning and external
00:06:23 00:06:27 for my mistakes and you know not making
00:06:25 00:06:28 them again and just to keep on you know
00:06:27 00:06:31 moving forward and just keep you know
00:06:28 00:06:32 building the business and that's a huge
00:06:31 00:06:34 reason that I made the youtube channel
00:06:32 00:06:36 because I was like you know I mean
00:06:34 00:06:38 there's some older people out there you
00:06:36 00:06:40 know maybe some 20 to 25 year old maybe
00:06:38 00:06:40 some 30 year olds out there that are you
00:06:40 00:06:42 know
00:06:40 00:06:43 putting videos out on Amazon and are
00:06:42 00:06:47 kind of good but there wasn't really
00:06:43 00:06:49 anyone like you know 20 and under you
00:06:47 00:06:50 know age wise that was really you know
00:06:49 00:06:52 having success I was really putting it
00:06:50 00:06:54 out there so I mean I've had this
00:06:52 00:06:55 YouTube channel for around a year now
00:06:54 00:06:57 and you know I posted it for a while and
00:06:55 00:06:59 then I stopped posting for a little
00:06:57 00:07:00 while then I'm starting to post again
00:06:59 00:07:02 cuz I have a lot more time during the
00:07:00 00:07:04 summer but I just want to be here to
00:07:02 00:07:06 motivate you and inspire you that you
00:07:04 00:07:07 don't have to go you don't have to go
00:07:06 00:07:09 and work a job you don't have to go and

00:07:09 00:07:11 Saturday nights be able to make an
00:07:10 00:07:14 income because your parents are pissed
00:07:11 00:07:16 at you then once you get a job salim Hey

00:07:23 00:07:26 you know if he can do it I can do it I
00:07:25 00:07:28 mean there's nothing there's nothing
00:07:26 00:07:30 special about me I mean I'm not even a
00:07:28 00:07:31 straight-a student I mean it's not like
00:07:30 00:07:33 I'm a whiz I'm not gonna be going to
00:07:31 00:07:35 Harvard or anything I mean you can do
00:07:33 00:07:37 this it's all about mainly it's mainly
00:07:35 00:07:39 about your mindset you know and just
00:07:37 00:07:41 taking action you know a lot of people

00:07:52 00:07:55 way you're gonna be able to reach that
00:07:53 00:07:57 is if you know you take action you

00:08:10 00:08:13 shipment set up this weekend like that's
00:08:12 00:08:15 the mindset you have to have if you want
00:08:13 00:08:18 to be able to build a business that can
00:08:15 00:08:20 potentially change your life I mean
00:08:18 00:08:23 imagine being able to make an extra miu
00:08:20 00:08:25 know 50 to $100 a day a day in profit as
00:08:23 00:08:27 a kid I mean imagine you know the shoes
00:08:25 00:08:28 and the clothing and you know everything
00:08:27 00:08:30 that you could buy with that I mean and
00:08:28 00:08:32 what if you know your first month you're
00:08:30 00:08:34 starting to make you made $50 a day in
00:08:32 00:08:35 the next month 100 and then by the end
00:08:34 00:08:37 of the year you were able to build a
00:08:35 00:08:39 business that's making you know three to
00:08:37 00:08:42 five hundred dollars a day profit at the
00:08:39 00:08:43 age of you know just being a high score
00:08:42 00:08:45 even a college student even if you're
00:08:43 00:08:47 watching this video and you know you're
00:08:45 00:08:49 not a teenager I mean you can still
00:08:47 00:08:50 change life it's not too late I mean I
00:08:49 00:08:53 literally been able to build this
00:08:50 00:08:54 business you know the main portion
00:08:53 00:08:57 to really scale it over the last I'd say
00:08:54 00:08:59 six months or so but people can do it a
00:08:57 00:09:00 lot quicker I mean it it all depends on
00:08:59 00:09:03 you know how you're spending your time
00:09:00 00:09:05 and you know do you want to invest it in
00:09:03 00:09:07 a course I mean I person that I have my
00:09:05 00:09:09 own Amazon FBA course if you are
