FBA Goal

Spent the morning going through the list of potential products and added the competing products.

After going through, I ended up with only 4 viable products but I can at least move forward with the next steps. Can come back and try again if none of these pass the next steps.

FBA Goal

Today I was able to narrow down two Hot Product opportunities. While I was working on my Competing product list, I found several more Primary Products to add to my original list.

I’ve spent about 2 hours so far working through Competing products.

I still have a list of about 16 items to go today.

FBA Goal

Today I was able to work on my primary product list for an Amazon product. I went through and picked about 22 to get started. I spent about 3 hours searching and adding to the list.

Tomorrow I will do the Competing product for as many of these as possible. My goal is to have my three Hot Opportunities selected by the end of this week.

Other Progress

  • I proofread and edited two blog posts for Megan’s childcare blog.
  • Setup our new Echo Dot.
  • Researched Alexa development.

FBA Goal

Went back and watched the Module 1 lessons on production selection to get back in the mindset to start getting serious about moving forward. My goal is to have my three Hot Opportunities selected by this Friday.

Other Progress

Today I had to get back to my normal routine with the day job after a several week vacation so my time was more limited.

Doing day-to-day around the house getting prepared for the coming week. Did a lot of clean up and got the kitchen reorganized. It was a big project.

No progress on FBA today, but this was planned due to vacation and preparation to new routine.

Another day driving back to Texas, and then a half-day of mental downtime.

No FBA progress; but planned for vacation and a mental break since my day-to-day grind starts back up on Monday.

FBA Goal

…I accidentally watched a little of Module 4, but I didn’t complete it or earn any badges.

I was still feeling fired up from the lessons I binged yesterday and also knew we’d be driving back home over the next few days and getting settled in over the weekend.

FBA Goal

I was feeling bummed about the lack of progress so I decided to re-watch a few lessons on product selection today while we were relaxing. This got me fired up again…

…and I know I really shouldn’t have moved forward since I have still not found my product opportunities, but I accidentally watched Module 2 and Module 3.

  • Earned: Completed Module 2 badge.
  • Earned: Completed Module 3 badge.

I was feeling extra stoked about the whole FBA plan and goal after watching these next two modules. I just have to make it through the tedious and frustrating product selection step.

Other Progress

Megan and I talked about her Miracle Mornings book and we listened to some of that today. I’d like us to implement some of this into our routine and I think she plans to as well. She did really well using this when we lived in Hawaii.

Journal #8 for 2019

Turned 40 today.

I didn’t want to do much other than relax and reflect. We went to Hooters and Megan accidentally had them sing to me.

But then we went to the Beach Bar and had a few drinks and chatted. We discussed what my goals were for the next 10 years:

  • Get in shape and stay in shape.
  • Be successful with FBA. Whatever it takes. Never give up.
  • Bare minimum of 250k/year.
  • Move to Florida.
  • Buy a house on the beach (within 5 minutes walking distance).
  • Buy a Boat.
  • Buy a Tesla.
