Quitting eBay Completely, A New Blog & £12k on Amazon UK in My First Month!
Oh, how I missed this!!!! 🙂
It has been almost 4 months now since my last blog post but it feels like YEARS! What started as a quick summer break slowly extended into a more complex transition time for me, my businesses and this blog. Especially the blog as you can see – we now have a brand new look & layout for it! I know that it’s hard to accept something new but I really hope you like how it all turned out and will get used to the new design very soon.
I’ve actually started to receive emails from long time blog readers asking whether everything is okay with me! Luckily I’m all good and actually in better shape than ever before! But I will leave that story to January, when it’ll be one year since my “Get Fit” start date.
Anyway, back to the question at hand – what have I been up to for all this time?
To start with, in the beginning of the summer, I went on a long awaited holiday to Croatia with my family – it was in the beginning of June, when the season over there technically hasn’t even started yet but for us it was perfect! 10 days with no rain, 30 degrees, a swimming pool and lots of relaxation.
At that time I didn’t even know that a major change for me and my business was just around the corner.
You have probably already noticed that something is different about the blog now?
That you see Amazon on every corner, and not eBay anymore?
Long story short, I quit eBay in August this year. Yes, after 10+ years of selling on eBay I stopped trading there completely and I have no plans to go back anytime soon (probably ever).
Why? Basically what happened is that the two Amazon businesses I started in 2015 and 2016 improved so much in sales over the summer that I asked myself – why the heck do I need eBay anymore as I get such a better ROI on Amazon? And not only a better ROI money wise, but time wise too – as on Amazon I’m fully relying on FBA for order fulfilment so my businesses basically run on their own, 24/7!
So I decided to leave eBay behind and fully concentrate on Amazon. (more…)

£1349 Last Month on eToro, Working Just 4h!
This week I have prepared something very special for you – let’s put aside eBay, wholesale and eCommerce for awhile and take a look at one specific way of making money online I have been practising with great success for the last few months. Yes, I’ll share with you exact strategy that generated me £1349 in ONE MONTH alone, and yes – I worked on this just 4 hours in total (1 hour every week)!
Question: How to get extremely wealthy? As wealthy as Warren Buffett for example?
Answer: by using Money to Make More Money!
In some way it relates to eCommerce World as well – we buy stock for wholesale prices and sell for retail prices to make a profit. But Warren Buffett didn’t open a B&M shop or a fast food restaurant chain, no – he used money to invest in financial instruments, such as stocks and shares. I have always been interested in such financial markers, stock trading and generally, in “using money to make more money” concept. Years ago I was heavily involved in Betfair trading, which is actually quite similar to stock market day trading. But already back then I realized that day trading is not for me:
- It was a very boring way of spending your day, glued to PC;
- It was very stressful;
- Potential earnings were some way limited, at least for my trading techniques.
But still to this day, from time to time, I was looking for opportunities to invest money to make more money. With increased profits from my info products business and eCommerce stuff, I wanted to find a way I could invest my profits into some sort of financial instruments to let my money make more money, hands free way!
Problem is that with most traditional financial investment instruments, such as stocks, mutual funds, savings accounts etc. your potential ROI is very small. Risks vary from one instrument to other but in general, in my opinion, reward for taking those risks is way too small! Invest in dividend paying stocks for 5% yearly ROI? 5% per year? I would better use that money to buy a pallet of un-branded Tablets, made in China and sell off in 3 months time for 20-30% ROI on eBay. Yes, selling physical products involve way more work than financial investments but again, 5%-10% yearly returns doesn’t sound appealing to me either!
And then it happened – six months ago or so, when I was searching for some creative ways to invest money, I found a concept that totally blew my mind away! Same concept that few months later made me £1349 net profit in one month alone!!! And today, I’ll share with you exactly how I did it… (more…)

BRAND NEW “Chat With Andrew” Business Consulting
For a very long time my blog readers and customers have asked for a down-sized version of my popular 60 Day Blueprint program as not everyone can afford the £1997 price tag and not everyone actually needs a full 10 week coaching program.
Sometimes you just need expert advice for an hour or two – on specific topics and questions that you’re struggling with. This is exactly where my brand new ChatWithAndrew.com business consulting services come into play!
Now you can “hire me” for just one or two hours and gain the huge benefits that come from my 10+ years of online selling and consulting experience.
Why waste days, weeks and even months on things you can solve within 1-2 hours? Why make the same mistakes everyone else is making when I can easily help you avoid them? There’s no point!
I have always placed a lot of value on expert’s opinions on things I’m personally not good at and I myself have taken many classes/coaching sessions over the years, spending thousands of pounds in the process! And while I don’t know absolutely everything, I truly believe that I can help you solve many problems and avoid many pitfalls by offering these services.
And to make this new service even more valuable, I have created 4 different “packages”, basically mini coaching programs, covering:
Let me quickly cover what each one involves:
Market Research – this is a 2 hour chat session where I will help you do proper market research – to find and verify profitable products to sell on eBay, Amazon, an online shop or even a market stall. I will make sure that the products we brainstorm are suitable for your buying power, have good Terapeak numbers and in general – have good potential of being profitable products that actually make you money!
