 Who is Stephen Smotherman?

Stephen Smotherman

I’m Stephen Smotherman, and for over a decade I’ve been making a full-time income (working only part-time hours) selling via Fulfillment by Amazon. With my FBA income, I’m able to work from home and be my own boss, as well as support my wife and boys. I truly love helping people achieve financial freedom, so I decided to share all of my best strategies for starting and sustaining a successful Amazon FBA business.

My family during an epic 7-day Grand Canyon road trip. Our Amazon FBA business kept going strong earning consistent money during the trip.

In this course, you’ll get the exact step-by-step strategies that my $300/hour coaching students would pay for me to teach them. But you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to learn the right way to start an Amazon FBA business. Instead, you can get it all in this 10+ hour life-changing course for only one payment of $797 (save $200 today off our regular $997 price).

Customer Testimonials

JumpStart Amazon helped me get set up quickly. The course was a step by step system to ensure that I began my journey with success in mind. Simple to follow directions plus more than enough background information into Amazon selling helped me understand why I was doing the work. The worksheets were helpful in digging deep into my WHY, understanding how to pay myself, and how to calculate the return on investment. The videos were great but the ebook was helpful as well – that allowed me to print them off – mark and highlight what I needed to do.

JumpStart Amazon helped me finally understand how to successfully sell via FBA. I could offer products, send them to Amazon and take a day off to see my grandchildren and not worry about rushing home to fulfill any orders. I really like Stephen’s teaching style and methods. Offering both video and written instructions that I could refer back to FOREVER!

This was my first quarter to sell on Amazon, and I’ve been able to find merchandise, make a profit, and continually return to the wisdom pearls I have found in JumpStart! This course has helped me to have money to put aside to help my son who is autistic.

Julie Jones

Selling on Amazon seemed like an awesome opportunity so I started looking for information on how to get started and I soon found Stephen Smotherman. His values and ethics aligned with my own, and I felt very comfortable choosing him as a mentor to start my amazing Amazon journey. I purchased JumpStart Amazon and studied all the material, then took action. I had my first sale the same day my inventory went live, and I know that was due to the guidance of JSA. My business now has the foundation needed to be a major success and is growing every day.

All of the material included in the course was very helpful, but I have to say that the finding your why section was especially helpful. I encountered several obstacles along the way and discovering my why has made all of them a piece of cake. I continue to look to Stephen as a mentor, and my business is better for it.

Michael Riley

Before finding JumpStart Amazon, I got really frustrated trying to find a way to make money online. When I found this course everything changed. I started watching the videos and immediately started to take action. The videos are easy to understand and Stephen takes you through step-by-step what you need to do and why. Since completing the course, I’ve been able to build up a good amount of inventory and I’m making sales often! I can definitely see this as a great way to make good money online.

Erica Flowers

So far, from what I have seen, this course are a godsend!!!! I learn better via books than videos, so I was happy you also had a pdf book version of the course. I downloaded the book and quickly began reading through it. I am so thankful for the information that you presented in the book. I’m so much more confident now to grow my Amazon business. Everything you shared was in a simple, easy to read and understand format – and that is a blessing. Nowhere else have I seen such comprehensive training relevant to selling on Amazon available in a written format. Thank you so much for this course!
