Success Story: Getting started selling on Amazon with no inventory

Not sure how to get started selling on Amazon?

This is a great story about a guy who found items on clearance at Target and WalMart, then posted those items on sale on Amazon...

His company is now making millions!

No need to deal with importing or distributers, just good old fashion bargain hunting... Sam Walton would be proud!

A lot of the time I browse for low cost items for the Christmas tree. It is near Christmas so you could find some jewelry or other small items for a start. What I do know from working with several small businesses is you need to start small, keep small and expand gradually.  Never let an initial success fool you into an immediate large investment. Whatever you do, do some research and be sure to sell quality, even for a small price, on something people want."
