Getting out of the hot Florida summers has become a priority. What better way than to take to the upper Midwest. I visited 5 states I hadn't been to before in my quest to visit all 57 states. Caught up with Captain Capitalism and got an update on A--hole Consulting. Business is booming. Visited Mall of America, what an awful amazing place. Then off to Mount Rushmore. It looks much bigger on TV. After visiting those states, MI, SD, ND, WY and MT, it was off to the Sprott Resource Conference in Vancouver BC. I flew into Seattle and was promptly harassed while crossing the border, par for the course. The conference was an upbeat affair with many of our sponsor companies in attendance. A record number of individuals attended as well. Great to see the sector come back. 

One place that's not coming back is NYC. Commissioner Bratton just stepped down and Washington Square Park has turned into an open air drug emporium and homeless shelter. Thank you comrade deBlasio!

When we last spoke with Mike Gazzola he had just broken the $200k mark in sales. Here's the latest results since he started his Amazon Store at the end of January 2016

Total Sales: $232,000

Total Unit Sales: 6472

Sales on 8-3-16: $3935

Past 30 day sales: $71,427

Past 30 unit sales: 1839

These would be amazing numbers for any small business start-up, but consider that Mike and Matt have zero employees, no receivables, minimal inventory and put in just $6,000 in start-up capital and haven't put in one cent more and it's all the more amazing. And what's even more amazing is that you can learn how to do it too and get started almost immediately. 

I'm about to start my own store selling a stainless steel drink tumbler and an electronic lighter. I can't wait to get start. 

We're off to China in early October with a group of students, in search of killer products. Join us!
