Dear John
I discoverde that amazon has a new system called FBA "Fulfillment by Amazon". Basically you send them your products and the storage and send them to the amazon customers. What do you thank about that system?
***Very expensive, so I don't do it...    Amazon does not help you sell, so you may just be paying expensive storage ...  there are better/cheaper ways than amazon right now....****

I read about some guy who was about to being replazed by amazon. As amazon contacted the producers so the producers would ship directly to amazon bypassing the middleman.
***Many people going out of business blame amazon....  I haven't seen a single credible case yet...  Amazon is part of the CIA/NSA, but I love what they do and I work with them ... amazon buys from me, they are a customer of mine...  I sell "ON" amazon, and I sell "TO" amazon...****

In that scenario: Is a good idea to take a product, create my own logo, label, brand etc (with my contact info) then send it to amazon as a way to protect my products?
***Well, you should always trade under your own name....  the only reason to involve amazon is if your customers demand it...  either explicitly or implicityl.***

Thanks for your time
P.S. I finally found  a potential product in my country that could be exported. Though I will have package and label it myself, for me is no problem as I wanna make a diminute shipment....
***Let's get going... what is the HTS number?***

With Trump being a businessman, it's going to be interesting to see what he does as President now.

Hi John,
Can you please explain what you mean by, "the specificity fits the brevity"?
I know it's probably real obvious but if you can expand on it that would be great. Thanks!

There are only 4 contact hours in the class with me... it is intense... but naturally, the course never ends... as long as I am breathing, I'll be answering emails from students, well after the end of the formal sessions...
