When you think about wholesaling on Amazon, do you immediately think about how it’s unaffordable and financially overwhelming? You’re not alone. We all have limiting beliefs about money. Whether it’s “I can’t afford it!” or “I don’t have enough money,” it impacts our lives and the decisions we make for our businesses. But while the struggle is certainly real, whatever thoughts are preventing you from taking that leap into wholesaling, the great news is that you have the power to change your money mindset and take control of growing your online business and success.


In this episode, I debunk the myths that prevent Amazon sellers from wholesaling and dispel the money mindsets blocks that prevent us from investing in our businesses and ourselves. I share some of my childhood experiences and how it shaped my attitude towards money and illustrate how our money mindsets affect our decisions on life and money. I explain why you can afford to wholesale on Amazon and describe how it can earn you more money than doing retail arbitrage. I also discuss how you can overcome the challenges of selling single unit items on Amazon when you go wholesaling as well as reveal how you can find wholesale vendors and connect with them.
