119. Stephen Somers, How to create an income stream with Amazon
In this episode, Stephen Somers and I have an amazing conversation about Amazon and how everyday people can build an incredible extra stream of income creating their own products for sale on Amazon! Not only that but we talk all things personal development including success habits, mentorship and more!
Stephen Somers is a co-founder of Marketplace SuperHeroes, an education platform that teaches members how to create a 5-7 figure income stream selling products on Amazon.
He and his business partner, Robert Rickey, are both 7-figure Amazon sellers, and serial entrepreneurs who have built Marketplace SuperHeroes, as well as a full Freight Company and Accountancy Service for Amazon sellers.
They have spoken all over the world, helping over 3,800 individuals build real, sustainable, and global businesses on Amazon selling boring, everyday items across multiple markets (not just .com!).
