Jon’s Bio

After working for a few years after graduating from the University of Washington in 2010, Jon grew impatient with the progression of income at his corporate commercial construction job. After doing months of research on his own, he started his Amazon FBA business in 2014 with a humble golfing product and soon became the #1 seller in the category.

Within a few years he was doing multiple millions in sales on the Amazon platform thanks to multiple brands and ever expanding product lines. In just under five years, he did over $10 million in total sales. In 2018, he reached out to a business broker and sold for a mid 7 figure exit in 2019. He is now helping sellers new and old achieve the same level of success at Black Label Advisor.

Jon’s Advice

Just related to Amazon being really diligent and really just disciplined with how you're looking at in terms of launching a product. A lot of people get obsessed with data and they experience data paralysis. It's really important also to go with your gut a little bit on Amazon. Just pursue your passion and really just focus on how profitable product is.

My particular advice and that is I never would have thought I would be in the circles and doing the things that I am now like 10 years ago. The more that I pushed forward, the more that I was able to break down doors and glass ceilings. So now everything seems pretty limitless. For a lot of founders out there, they just feel like they're going to win overnight and then most folks are not going to win overnight.It's like a 10 year journey itself. Your journey. I've seen folks that raise several rounds and they're still, like needing to raise more rounds. Really believe in yourself, surround yourself with other folks that believe in yourself. But also challenge you to be better.
