Miro Posavec is no stranger to hardship in business. After building up a very successful business in real estate and physical stores, the Great Recession swept the rug out from underneath him. He went from successful business owner to single father struggling to keep the lights on.
He realized he had to get another business up and running as soon as possible. He sourced a healthcare product and started selling it to doctors and health stores in his area. When someone asked him about selling on Amazon, he initially declined, but later realized that it was the perfect place for his products.
It took buying and implementing the training in an online course to really move the needle in his business though. In two weeks, he went from selling $2k in products to $20k in products per week. Miro has overcome several obstacles since then and he keeps driving his business forward.
One of the ways he’s done this is by hiring skilled virtual assistants to tackle tasks in various parts of his business. He has relied on VAs for several years, but it wasn’t until he ran into Amazon PPC that he realized he needed to start hiring VAs with specific skills. It was an AHA! moment that has taken a great deal of stress out of running his business.
