Happy New Year for 2017

December 29th, 2016 by Skip McGrath

2016 was a great year for all four of our businesses

  1. Writing and training business – This was one of our best years in the past five years for our training book sales
  2. Our Amazon Business – Amazon has continued to grow.  As we have gotten older, we have scaled our business back to carry fewer SKUs (Down from 900 to less than 300), but our business is still profitable –partly because we have stressed Private Label
  3.  eBay Business – Our eBay business has struggled for the past 7 years, but is now coming back.  It is nowhere as profitable as Amazon, but much better than it was a few years ago.
  4. Affiliate Marketing – Again – this business is nowhere near as good as it was a few years ago, but it really bounced back this year- and is now almost 15% of our income.

We sincerely hope 2017 will be great for you   Our desire is for all of you, to have a happy, successful and profitable 2017 !!!

As you go into the new year, keep it in mind that you only live once, life is short, rules are meant to be broken, and having fun and creating memories are what really matters.

My New Year’s wish for you is:  For days that are hassle free, a mind that is burden free, and love that is condition free.

Cheers and Happy New Year

Skip & Karen McGrath
