The Opportunity Ep.37: From Living off $10k a Year to an 8-figure Amazon FBA Exit

Branden Schmidt May 26, 2021

In this episode of The Opportunity Podcast, we will be speaking with Max Chu, who recently exited his Amazon FBA business for 8-figures. Max explains how he and his brother went from surviving lay-offs and bouncing back from a collapsed business to finally making a life-changing exit from their FBA business.

Max and his brother started out growing their first content sites back in 2007 monetizing them through Google Adsense. After being hit by the Google Panda and Penguin updates and lost 80% of their traffic, they were in need of a new way to make money. Max had just had a baby and trying to live off 10k a year from the site wasn’t working. That’s when they made the switch over to Amazon FBA. While doing everything they could to make ends meet, Max and his brother went all-in on their Amazon FBA business, reinvesting the profits to help them grow it to new heights. Tune in as Max explains the struggles of building an 8-figure FBA business from start to finish, what to expect when the negotiation process begins with high net-worth investors, and how to get the most from your exit with the help of a broker.

Sit back, grab a coffee, and get ready to hear an inspirational story of how one FBA seller was finally rewarded for overcoming challenges with an 8-figure exit.
