Building An Online Business To Survive Difficult Times
When I started SurvivalGrandma.com, I did so with the thought of learning and passing along information about prepping and self-sustaining measures. I didn’t give a lot of thought to surviving financially should a disaster hit and I lose my job.
In the past year, many people have found themselves in this situation. Many lost their job and many others lost their business. Perhaps it has never been more important than now to have a side gig or an actual online business to keep the lights on, food on the table and a roof over our heads.
In 2017, I set out on an adventure to learn more about creating a business on Amazon. It was rough going, but fortunately, I had a lot of help from someone who had forged the way before me. I learned how to source products, relabel them, stock them, get them listed on Amazon, and then drive traffic to them so that they could be found and purchased. It was a lot of work but in the end, I was fairly successful.
Today, the same person who introduced me to this method of selling on Amazon, Jason Fladlien, has created a training where he teaches a better way. This new way involves selling wholesale products and it removes most of the work that I struggled to master a few years ago.
He created a .pdf that you can download here to learn more about it.
One of the best things about what he will be teaching is that this business model comes with an exit strategy. In two to three years, it can be sold for a very handsome sum.
Full transparency, he will be offering a full course at the end of the training. However, Jason is one of the best presenters that I have ever witnessed and I guarantee that if you attend his training you will learn a lot, and perhaps enough for you to start it on your own.
I have signed up for this free training, too. One of the best things about what he will be teaching is that this business model comes with an exit strategy. In two to three years, you could sell it for a very handsome sum. As I near retiring age, this has a lot of appeal for me. Roberta, a student of Jason’s was interviewed about this business model.

This year has brought home for me that survival isn’t simply about getting through what the short term might throw your way, but it is more important than ever to plan for what today’s problems can mean long term.
