Welcome to our first blog post here at Sourcing Monster channel. My name is Tomer David, nice meeting you all!
I will share with you my plans and vision of the future of this Channel which will mainly tackle my beliefs on Amazon, private label products and about making money online.
You can simply call me Tomer. I am originally from Israel and we’ve moved to USA six years ago.
I started making money online when I was 13 years old. It was about a website called, ‘Topic’ where we would go to schools and take pictures and upload it to the site. We had a lot of traffic from people who wanted to grab their photos and upload them to their social media accounts. It was fun, I was young and bank teller would ask me how I did it with a weird look at me. didn’t really understand how I come with foreign checks at that young age.
When turned 20, I got into jewelry business which I am working at up to this day.
I always thought about how I can make more money and get another source of income. I got into buying and selling websites that already have traffic but after years of doing it, I realized that it doesn’t really provide the income that I was interested in.
I did a lot of research on the best opportunity to make money – a lot of money with the least effort or time involved in it.
I wanted something I could do all over the world and that basically doesn’t require me to be physically located in a location.
That was very important to me.
That’s when I stumbled upon Amazon…
How did I get into Amazon?
It turned out that the selling on Amazon option looked the best for me because Amazon is doing everything for you.
You don’t really have to store physically at your place or warehouse. It saves time. They do the customer service, they do pretty much everything for you and the only thing for you is just to bring the product and deal with the suppliers but it’s very minimal.
And then I saw other people making a hundred of thousands a month. These guys make $50,000, $40,000, $30,000, that was really nice.
Those people have less background or experience in computers or online marketing than me and I said “If they can make it, I can too. So, okay, let’s give it a try!”
“How can I invest?” I really think that this opportunity is worth doing. That’s when I downloaded an online course about selling on Amazon, I followed what they teach and I started doing the product and research.
At first, I was not 100% sure of what I was doing. Obviously, I did so many things wrong so I said to myself, “Okay, every year at my birthday, I set up and make a list of my yearly goals “
So I would put a long list every year of the things that I want to achieve.
Then after reviewing previous year’s history, I didn’t see that I’ve achieved a lot. I got some progress but not the progress I wanted.
I must change something.
You cannot expect different results if you do the same things over and over again.
Then I realized, I have to set one goal. The goal is to make $10,000 net profit every month from my online business.
I didn’t really know what I want to do. I’d just put my online business. That was actually a little before when I decided to go with Amazon and started the product. So, I set that goal and I just put three things that must happen.
Three steps that I must follow and as long as I’m going to be committed to these three things, I know the results would come.
The first thing is waking up as early as 4 AM in the morning. The reason being is that I have a day job and I won’t have the time to work all day +, in general, it’s recommended to wake up early and get rid of the important things you have to do while everyone else are sleeping.
You have the best focus and energy of the day.
So I wake up at 4 AM and work at least three hours on my Amazon online business.
I said to myself, “If I do it, waking up every day from 4 AM to 7 AM, I will figure it out. Even if I don’t reach my goal at least I know I gave hundred percent of myself and tried.”
Then the second thing was to write a journal.
I would write what I am going to do the next day in the morning and at the end of the day, I would write how was my day.
I would write what I did wrong, what I learned, what I could do better with the struggles that I had this day, and try to be as focused as possible for the next day.
This is to keep me focused on my goal and to not waste time.
And the third thing, between 4 AM to 7 AM wake up that early. It’s something that I learned through the Miracle Morning book. I was committed to always do the two things above and then tweak that to improve it.
I just started. I did it for a year.
For the first two months, I didn’t really know exactly what I want to do because I failed with the first product selling on Amazon.
I also spent time on learning & doing affiliate marketing, I built landing pages and try to do some affiliate marketing. But at the same time, I researched more about Amazon.
After two months, waking up from 4 AM to 7 AM. And doing all this work. I decided to go and just concentrate only on Amazon.
I will also share some affiliate links to some tools that we use to find products or things that help me in my Amazon business but for now the goal of the channel is to focus on Amazon.
I will only focus on Amazon, one thing only this year. So I don’t have excuses at the end of the year that I did too much or didn’t make it simple.
In general, what I found and figured out after this year, that if it’s simple, and it’s clear, and it’s not super complicated, the chances that you will make that goal happen is very high.
And also with goal setting, I only put three things, at the end, I just followed two things from the list.
Focus is the most important thing, and I would repeat a lot on this blog.
I met a guy that was teaching how to sell on Amazon (I will link to it down below in the description. His name is Yaniv Itskovitch)
I owe him everything because he taught me how to sell on Amazon. Yes, I did the job and I learned everything but he basically taught me everything.
I asked him so many questions and he helped me down the road in the journey. And that’s how I got started.
You don’t have to buy any course or pay to anyone to succeed in Amazon.
But I would 100% recommend having someone that you can ask him questions, someone that’s already reached or have the things that you want to reach and your goals.
This will make a huge difference.
It can tell you that after this year, I made my goal. I made at the end of the year $10,000 net profit.
Now it’s more than that it’s more like $15,000 to $20,000, and during the holiday season months it was around $30,000 profit a month.
But my goal for this year is to make $350,000 net profit a month.
it’s not going to be easy.
It’s going to be even harder than what I had last year but last year taught me a ton of things about myself and about business, about how you do things and things that I want to share with you on this blog.
So why create this blog?
I’m really tired of these videos with promises and people talking bullshit.
My goal in this blog is to teach serious people and show people how to do it the right way.
And that understanding that it will not just come like that. You cannot put 20 minutes a day or 30 minutes a day and expect to have success like that.
You have to be 100% committed.
So maybe you need to cut watching TV or really make big sacrifices.
It won’t be easy, but it’s totally worth it.
And if you’re not serious, maybe I’m not the right person to learn from or get inspired from.
My goal is to really deliver content and provide value to people that are serious, that want to make a change in their life and they know it will not be easy but they are willing to make these sacrifices and to get the job done.
Why you should follow Sourcing Monster?
Because I feel that my way of doing things is very aggressive, very right to the point.
Cut the bullshit. Just focus on what you need to do
And source very, very fast, very quick and rapidly grow the business because I see people three, four years and they didn’t make $10,000 net profit a month that quick.
The reason is that they were just flowing and not setting precise focused goals.
I will share more about how I did it – my style.
I will share what needs to be done to make it grow fast. It doesn’t mean that you need to do crazy things.
It just means that you need to focus on the thing at a time, that may affect the bottom line.
In the beginning, you have to focus on the bottom line, you have to focus on the things that will reach your results faster and will change the bottom line numbers.
I appreciate you reading my first blog post here and I hope you got some value out of it.
If you have any comments to share or thoughts I’ll appreciate if you can share them in the comments section down below.
