The other day I was in a coffee shop and ran into Kendall Davis. Kendall had attended a Career Focus class I help teach at my church. At the time of the class, Kendall was between jobs and trying to determine what to do next. So, naturally I asked him if he found a job. The answer was no. Do you know the feeling you get when you think you have failed to help someone? That is how I felt. But the rest of the story made me feel much better.

Kendall shared with me WHY he was no longer looking for work. Now, instead of a job, he does what he loves working from home (or coffee shops) and making his household living on his own terms. And when I found out what he was doing, my reaction was “you can make money like that?”
So I had to have him on the show!
Making a Living from Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)
I will confess, I have no expertise in what Kendall and I discussed on the show. But I did want to provide you with this information as another path to make money on your own! I have sold via eBay and Amazon, but nothing of this level.
But I will give you the basic path Kendall and his wife took to their new business:
- They love garage and yard sales. A fun family hobby.
- In the Career Focus class, we took Kendall through the How to Find Your Calling exercise. You can get the ebook that takes you through the same exercise below.
- He started exploring selling goods on his eBay store DAVISDEALS4U. Realized some products had enough markup to make it work.
- Found out about Amazon’s service Fulfillment by Amazon (also known as Amazon FBA) and began to explore options.
- Learned others were doing this at a higher level. See the Episode Resources below for links to some of these other people.
Now, the Davis family is a retailer. The business is growing and Kendall is beginning to see a lot of options for growing his business.
To learn more about Kendall, visit his store at Kendall’s eBay Store.
