Here’s what I got out of this interview with Filip…

The first thing that this interview did was reinforce just how powerful the Amazon FBA opportunity is and that it is the best way for people to get started creating a new online business for themselves.

Whenever family and friends come to me asking, “what is the best way to make money online?”, for the past 18 months I have been telling them to start an Amazon FBA business.

The second thing I got out of this interview is that to be successful in business, you need to do things a little different than everyone else.

If you’re selling the ‘same’ stuff as your competition, you won’t stand out, and if you don’t stand out, you’ll have to divide the spoils equally with your competitors.

By creating physical products that are a little different, especially if they are in some way better than the competition, you’ll be a lot more profitable.
