Stephen:                             [00:00:24]               Hey, great opportunity. Q four is here, right? You’re ready to buy. You’re ready to sell. Uh, if you could look for some cashflow, a now might be a great time to jump back into Ra at OAA. Lots of people do it. There’s some people that that’s all they do. They only work this time of year, sell enough, and then take the rest of the year off, sipping drinks on a beach and bottling. Anyway, though, the outliers. Let’s talk about the rest of us, but if you want to add back already, no way, then I have a great group for you. It’s through amazing freedom. Our friends that amazing freedom, my friends at amazing freedom and it’s Gaye Lisby specific. She is an unbelievable teacher and so what the deal they offered us through this podcast is two weeks free, so it’s a two week free trial, so there’s no risk to you at all, so it’s amazing.

If you sign up now between now and September 15th, so that’s coming up in less than two weeks by September 15th, if you’re a subscriber and you stick through to black Friday, you’re going to get Gaye’s black gold list. Okay? So the beauty of it, it’s a black Friday list, right? If you’ve ever went out shopping in black Friday list when you, we’d send shoppers out, we’d go to a whole bunch of different places and you get those peak items, the great news. Now you can order a bunch of mud line too, but you also want to do, but to have a list in your hands, you go in, I buy these three items, boom, I’m out of there. Well, she gives you that list and that is a list they sell.

Stephen:                             [00:01:50]               It’s expensive. However, if you’re a member and you’re a member by September 15th and you stick your way through to black Friday, you automatically get it for free, so you got to act fast. Try the two weeks. It’s completely free. See what you get. Look at those daily fine list and then say, Huh, for the small fee, it is a month. This is worthwhile for me, especially this quarter. Get somebody’s buying for you. Give them this list. This is what you’re going to invest in. This is a simple testing tool for you to see, hey, is this something I can be good at? Men, invest now, take the two weeks free and try it. I love it, love it, love it, and trust her. One hundred percent. She is such a teacher. Go check out our group. Okay, amazing., forward slash momentum, hyphen, arbitrage. Know the other sponsors I want to talk about is sellerlabs scope and we just launched a new product.

Stephen:                             [00:02:38]               I’m very excited about it. It’s wholesale and private label combined for us. Kind of a bundle thing that we do. Um, but I’m very excited because we use scope to help me with the keywords because it’s such a big deal figuring out the key words. How are you going to rank for this? How do you rank for this? Well, guess what we do, we go like everybody else and we figure out what the top products keywords are and then we use also that’s what scope allows you to do. And so it’s such a great, great product for discovering profitable Amazon keywords. You can even use it for finding products to you can with fee, cow sale calculations, all that stuff’s included, right? And it’s, it’s just a chrome extension simple to use, simple to use. We use it, um, if you could say 50 bucks by entering the code momentum.

Stephen:                             [00:03:21]               So seller, forward slash scope and to the code womentum save 50 bucks. That’s real money, save it please. And finally, I don’t want to Miss Karen Locker solution for ecommerce solutions. The number for ecommerce forward slash momentum is our link. Um, Karen, Karen’s been a sponsor, my show, I guess it’s almost three years now and it’s been phenomenal. The people that are still with Karen all those years, including me, I paid the same price you do. It’s because the consistency. Um, so many times I, you know, I get these emails, hey stranded inventory report, boom, you know, I look at it but I don’t have to do anything because there’s a member of my team, somebody that we can count on to help my wife and I with our business so we don’t have to pay attention to it. That’s what I like, that’s what I needed.

Stephen:                             [00:04:06]               And so solutions four ecommerce care locker, her team, um, I get notes from all the time I launched a. I think I talked about this last time. I launched a ton of products. The same product that I’ve used in scope for. I sent her here. The images here now we do the key words. We do all that stuff upfront. She does a flat files for me. Boom. They went in. It was perfect. No feedback. I don’t have anything to change because it was done exactly as it was supposed to be, but I didn’t have to mess with it. And it’s not that. I can’t, it’s not that I’m above it, it’s just that it allows me now to focus on this other piece. And so when you’re a small company like ours, when you have other people on your team working with you and working for you, it just makes the difference.

Stephen:                             [00:04:42]               And you know, I’ve said it for three years. Again, I look for consistency over time and Karen’s given me that, um, is it perfect? No, Steve’s never perfect. And so she keeps me on track and really helps us when we need it. And so it’s been a great relationship and I’m just so proud to offer it. I’m very careful about these things and I’m so proud to offer it. So solutions the number for ecommerce forward slash momentum, you’re going to say 50 bucks and that’s real money. Again, that’s real $50 by using my link. You don’t get that link anywhere else to save the 50 and she’s going to do an inventory. Health report, storage fees who get hit with storage fees right through just happened, right? A longterm storage is now their monthly, right? This quarter they’re going to be monthly by using Karen and her team, you could get that inventory health done, boom, pull back, which you don’t need or put sales on it, whatever it is. I’m Karen also does work on Ebay. If you want them to bring your listings over to Ebay using joe list or any of the other products. She does that kind of work too, but you got to use my link solutions, the number for ecommerce forward slash momentum saved the 50 bucks. Tell Karen I sent you and make sure that you really understand all the stuff that you can get through her service has been phenomenal. Let’s get into the podcast. Welcome back to the ECOMMERCE momentum podcast. This is episode 336 Paul megapixel.

Stephen:                             [00:06:02]               You might think that this is a pitch fest for Tony Robbins because Paul was involved with him and him giving you the heads up. Now, um, it’s not, um, because I don’t benefit. I don’t get a percentage. There’s no affiliate fees or anything like that. I like to see people move forward in life. One of my goals is to help people who are stuck and I think a lot of getting stuck, um, and Paul uses this number. Success is 80 percent mindset and 20 percent mechanics. I think that’s fair. I think when you sit back and look at it, you already know what to do, right? Why aren’t you doing it? Right? You are me and my weight loss. I already know what I need to do. I need to stop eating a whole bunch of crap and move around. Right? That’s pretty easy math. Why don’t I do it?

Stephen:                             [00:06:40]               Why haven’t I been able to do it for so long? Right? And Paul gives you some really good examples. And so there are definitely some quote Isms of Tony Isms, right? But you know what, um, if, if Tony’s a guy that helps you get, give yourself permission than men spend the money, you know, he’s going to help you if that’s possible. And if it’s not, Tony, I mentioned Oprah, right? If that’s who inspires you, it could be your ministry in your church, if that helps, whatever it is, you know, realize that there’s more to life. I think Paul is a perfect example of somebody who’s had doesn’t have it all figured out, but is maybe one of those guys that you need in your life that says, I don’t have it all figured out, so therefore I’m not going to just let life happen to me.

Stephen:                             [00:07:21]               I’m going to, I’m going to happen to life and I’m going to make sure that me and my wife and you wait to hear the love he has for his wife. Um, we’re going to do it on our terms. How cool is that? Is that missing in your life? If you’re not, if it’s not missing, man, don’t, don’t listen to this one. Move on, but if there’s something missing in your life, do you, do you need more? If you’re trying to lose weight, if you’re trying to repair your relationship, if you and your spouse or drifting apart, if you and your parents aren’t talking, if you and your friends are drifting, if your business isn’t moving forward where you want to go, if a, if life is happening to you, Paul can help you get some permission to start happening to life. I think it’s a great example, great guy, and he gives his contact information.

Stephen:                             [00:08:06]               I absolutely would follow him because he. I mean, he’s living his dream. It’s not your dream. Okay. And don’t see the Lamborghini and think that that’s your dream. Right? When you see that Tai Lopez guy lived the dream, you want the one that’s right for you. Paul will help you get permission. Let’s get into the podcast. Alright, welcome back to the ECOMMERCE momentum podcast. I’m very excited about this guest because I’ve been wanting to have this conversation for a whole bunch of reasons. A because he’s a reseller, right? And he’s been doing it, but he’s been doing it at his terms, which I think is always awesome. I think anybody who designs their life intentionally, but one of the other things is, is that Paul, MCA peggle. How did I do in the name up? Pretty good. We’ll take it. What’s the. Give me a better version.

Stephen:                             [00:08:51]               A macro MCA pegol. Alright, I got to get that out the last. Okay. But Paul is also a big Tony Robbins guy and we’re going to talk about the levels that he gets to ’em and I think, you know, some people are turned on or turned off. So if you turned off, this might not be for you. I understand that, but if you’ve not experienced him or if you’ve not met somebody who can help pull stuff out of you, who get some of the junk out of your life and get it out into the open so you can clearly talk about it. And this is for a lot of guys who can’t do that because that’s not the way they were raised. You got to be tough. You got to be mean. You gotta be, you know, keep that stuff, you know, keep your dirty laundry in house.

Stephen:                             [00:09:35]               I think Paul is going to give us some great perspective on things that you’ve seen. But again, Paul was a seller and I think like so many great outliers, they have figured out a way to earn enough money to make the life they want. And I think that’s an awesome life. Welcome Paul. Welcome. Welcome, welcome. Thank you. Glad to be here. Well, I mean, what I said, you know, I think, uh, when I look at what you’ve been able to do, it’s, it’s intentional or at least it’s been intentional for how long would you say?

Paul:                                      [00:10:07]               Um, you know, I’ve been, uh, I’ve been at this business now for a right around the two year mark. Um, so you know, this in the very beginning of, of this, uh, business venture, it was really nothing more than just a hope and a prayer and an idea. Uh, but you know, once the fire was lit it was nonstop after that,

Stephen:                             [00:10:26]               so two years. So that means your life hasn’t always been in order by designed like everybody else.

Paul:                                      [00:10:34]               No. You know, we control or having everything where it needs to be. It’s really a figment of your imagination. You know, everything is a hot mess. Until you could do it, you could put all of your time, your effort into put into placing all the pieces together. And you know, once I figured out how to put these pieces together or at least most of the pieces, you know, everything started falling into place.
