The gladiators of e-commerce. I always respect sellers, and being one for eight years, I am now reliving that feeling as our first Amazon product is finally live on the marketplace. In today’s episode we discuss our mini and short celebration of the product being live, the pressure to have it “launched”, various feedback we have been receiving on the right way to launch. On top of that, more shipments are coming into Amazon, I was just in Vietnam and saw our supplier, and we are looking at even more products. To wrap up, more team re-organization and reflection.
