Sophie Howard built and sold a 7 figure Amazon e-Commerce business in less than two years. Here’s how she did it.
Sophie Howard launched her first Amazon business, selling premium handmade products from Nepal. Within 18 months, she’d reached $2 million in revenue for a company that was only taking her a day a week to run. While it sounds like the perfect source of passive income, Howard had specifically grown her company to be sold.
But selling an Amazon e-commerce business has unique challenges. Howard had an established supply chain and interested international buyers, but no access to her own client list. Find out how Howard navigated the sale, took home a tidy cash payout, and developed a repeatable business model for herself and other aspiring entrepreneurs.
