Show Number: 54

Guests: Cynthia Stine & Brandon Lee

Cynthia Stine:

Cynthia Stine is an owner of a struggling small business who got into online selling as a way to pay for the extra expenses that came up when she and her husband adopted a special needs teenager. Having limited time of 10 hours a week or less, she looked for a business that generated a good income for time invested. What she discovered is that she could make thousands of dollars a month leveraging’s Fulfillment by Amazon program.

She started with $200 and grossed over $40,000 in sales her first year. Her book Make Thousands on Amazon in 10 Hours a Week! is the one she wished she’d had when she was getting started, and it reflects the questions that came up when she was helping her friends and family start their successful online businesses
