Descripción

The U.S. Armed Forces used to promote using the motto, "Join the Navy and See the World." Based on my personal experiences traveling through 20 countries since 2009, I'm changing this motto to "Join the Amazon FBA Program and See the World." If you dream of travel, you don't have to wait until retirement to cross exploring the world off of your bucket list. You just need to get in gear for running your own business, do your homework starting with reading this book, and take off.
I was definitely one of those people who continually dreamed of global travel. Then I read 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Tim Ferris in 2009 and realized I could be liberated. I did not need to rely on the traditional 9-to-5 job to make a living. Ferris was working 14-hour days at his own sports nutrition supplement company. Overwhelmed by the amount of work and zero free time, he took a sabbatical and traveled through Europe, Asia, and South America. Ferris learned a great deal during these trips. He followed a streamlined system of checking email once daily and outsourcing small daily tasks to virtual assistants. In his book, Ferris argued that today's technological advancements, such as email, instant messaging and Internet-enabled smart phones,, are anything but time savers. They make life much more complicated. Instead, he promotes the idea of hiring virtual assistants to free up one’s personal time.
Actually, the primary challenge of 4-Hour Workweek is not quitting your job and packing your suitcase. Instead, it's finding what Ferris calls a "muse," or a low-maintenance business that generates significant income. You leverage this muse to finance your ideal lifestyle, which consists of traveling around the world.
When I read Ferris' book, I was already benefitting from my successful muse: FBA, which stands for Fulfillment by Amazon. In this book, I'm going to show you how to use Amazon's FBA system to automate your income and travel the world. I write from first-hand experience: I'm publishing this book from the "road," actually the train tracks, through Eastern Europe, continuing my travels outside the U.S. that have gone on for over four years. Right now, I'm in a posh apartment in Belgrade, Serbia. I've called this my home for the last two months.
This book isn't some theoretical experiment. I'm living proof that the ideas in this book work. Tons of books show you how to travel. Another ton of books exists to tell you to "start a business," without showing you how. My book is different. I'll give you the exact type of business to start and show you how to start it. You'll also learn the tricks I've used in order to travel over the globe for years.
What makes the difference between someone like myself who is "his own man" and left employee life behind and someone still working in the nine-to-five world? What separates the entrepreneurs from the deferrers—or those people who keep on deferring their freedom until it's too late? Here are the main differences between the two:
* Working for yourself vs. working for someone else -
* Setting your own schedule vs. following another person's time-frame
* Doing everything for yourself vs. outsourcing the repetitive work
* Making your personal lifestyle your priority vs. prioritizing your work
* Traveling when you are young and in good health vs. putting off travel until it's too late
* Making money for yourself vs. making money for someone else's bottom line
* Making a personal contribution vs. being a cog in a machine
There are three primary concepts you need to understand to make your worldwide business work out best: 1) Fulfillment, 2) Sourcing for Saleable Products, and 3) Outsourcing Your Business Administration. Once you know the basics and my tips concerning these three areas, I can get into the nitty-gritty and show you how to incorporate what you learned with traveling tips.

What Is Fulfillment?

In the typical brick-and-mortar business setting, inventory is purchased in advance of sales and stored locally. A considerable portion of a budget and a company's resources must go toward storing the product, keeping track of orders, packaging, shipping, and confirming orders with customers. Under the fulfillment model, a fulfillment company handles all of these activities.

E-commerce has made fulfillment all the more important, since many online businesses do not have an actual store. Since the fulfillment process is automated, the process can take place 24/7, with orders arriving from anywhere around the world. When an order is placed through an online shopping cart, the information is automatically sent and integrated into the order management system of the fulfillment company. The e-commerce owner is free to focus on other areas that will grow the business, such as marketing, product selection and updates, and customer service.

Most fulfillment companies offer additional services beyond storing and shipping the product, such as direct response; rebates; gift cards; sales material publishing; catalog printing, distribution and fulfillment; and warranty replacement. They are able to collaborate with to the e-commerce business and handle its customer service needs.

Most fulfillment companies charge for their services on a per-transaction basis. This usually consists of charges to: 1) receive and store products, 2) record each separate order, 3) find each item in the warehouse, 4) ship materials, and 5) pay shipping costs.

What You Want in a Fulfillment Company:

1) A safe and secure warehouse that protects your products from damage. You want the assurance that an experienced staff handles your items
