“Selling products on Amazon has become a great starting point for building a business.”

Kiri Masters started Bobsled Marketing, an agency that helps brands to launch their products on Amazon. At the age of 28, she quit her job as a commercial banker to start the company. Now, she and her team have launched over 100 products on Amazon, ranging from drones, to pillows, to gun holster belts.

I wanted to get Kiri on the show because, as she says, “being an employee isn’t a bad thing.” Kiri worked in the banking industry for years before she started her own business, and she picked up some invaluable skills along the way. We talk about how to be a more productive employee, how to manage your manager, and how working for someone else prepares you for entrepreneurship. And, of course, Kiri talks about some of the ways you can get started selling products on Amazon!
