Webinars & Training

This month, we shared two stories from Amazon sellers who have used Jungle Scout to successfully launch their dream businesses. You can find tons of helpful lessons and tips in their recorded interviews below. 

Amazon Success Story: Kim Meckwood of Click & Carry 

Kim Meckwood’s Amazon success story is one we couldn’t wait to share! This entrepreneur took a slightly different route to Amazon FBA success than many: she invented her own product. 

Today, Kim’s success on Amazon and at brick-and-mortar retail stores has allowed her to work on her own business full time — including pitching her product on prime-time TV. Thanks to the record-setting sales she earned after her Shark Tank episode aired, she’s halfway to reaching her projected goal of $500,000 in sales by the end of 2021. 

Amazon Success Story: Morgan of Cajunventures

In this Amazon FBA Success Story, we chat with Morgan of Cajunventures, a self-made millionaire who shares how she was able to quit her day job and build a new life for herself by selling on Amazon. 

Morgan shares her journey to $4.5 million in sales on Amazon and how her life has changed since becoming her own boss. She also discusses the challenges she’s faced along the way, what inspires her to keep going, and some of her pro tips for people looking to get started.
