amazon FBA earning potential

Raun (and others too), is a goal of earning a profit of $2,000 per month with FBA attainable, assuming you can invest $400 per month into the business?The reason I ask is, Raun, I don't know if you talked about your earnings on the call with Dan, but that's my initial goal.

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I have been a fan of Dan Miller for YEARS! I am a proud owner of one of Dan's 3 ring binder 48 Days workbooks, complete with cassette tapes! I have had a lot of ideas, some bad, some good.

I have recently developed an iphone and Droid app called "My WDW Tips", an app with Disney World tips and secrets, and I want to share my experience and help you with iphone app development, Droid app development, and more! You can see my app development group here, or my companion website and podcast at www.unbeatableappdevelopment.com
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a a full time employee who contracts physicians and hospitals to participate in a HMO health plan, but I would LOVE to be able to earn enough income through my App Development coaching and through Beachboody to focus on that!
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I hope to take my App Development aching business to the next level, by sharing my own experiences with you and with business owners and individuals I meed, and helping you take that leap to develop your own iphone app!

I also want to work on improving my own fitness and helping a LOT of others do the same, and to seek out other Team Beachbody coaches who have the same ambition.

I hope to transition this to my main source of income in two years.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to be debt free using the Dave Ramsey plan. I want to be able to provide for family, and spend quality time with my wife and our daughter Olivia, who we adopted from China in 2006. And i want to maintain a level of fitness that I had when I finished Navy basic training in 1990.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I have a knack for building rapport and networking with people. I love to write, and I love to help people fill needs. I am also failry competent with computers.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
More than one website?
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
This e-book course is the result of my own app development for iPhone and Droid apps, and shows you how to create your own iPhone apps and Droid apps, and how to start earning with those apps! Take a look at http://www.unbeatableappdevelopment.net, and use coupon code 48DAYS for a discount! Help me spread the word about this great product!

Hi everyone......simple question.....or maybe not so simple......I'm unable to upload my app which I've had developed to Google. The problem is with the zip align apk files.......the Google program will not align them upon uploading the app.

Do you have to specifically use their Google Android App development kit in order to be able to upload an app to them....if not, then what what be my problem......there is no Google phone support available and their on line tech support is useless........


Thanks much.......

Just noticed you joined 48Days.net -- WELCOME! It's a great site with tons of great people.

If you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out the following groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place.

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

One other thing…I want to offer you a gift. You can download my FREE e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! by joining the REAL Success E-Zine community at www.liveitforward.com. It's a growing and dynamic community of people striving to live WAY BEYOND their average in the most important roles of their lives. I think you'll get a ton out of both the Goal-Setting product and the REAL Success E-Zine. And again, both are absolutely free.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian

Michael -- Welcome to 48Days.net. You’re joining lots of other Dave Ramsey listeners here. Dave and I have been friends for over 20 years now. So you have one of my old 3-ring binder 48 Days -- cool. Adam and Eve also were buyers of that.

This site is the place where you can get advice from people you trust. You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group. Many of the members here have already found their focus and are up and running with work that is meaningful, purposeful – and profitable. Whether you are arriving here with your business fully formed or are still in the beginning stages – just stick around. This group is full of great ideas and strategies to make them come to life.

My son and daughter-in-law are big P90X junkies. And they are both very buff.

Thanks for being part of the 48 Days family. We’re glad you joined us! Dan Miller – 48 Days
