Steve opened the show talking about the Chinese New Year and pointed out that there is no reason to get too worked up about those who are in the fear mongering businesses who talk about Chinese factories shutting down or 40% of factory workers not returning to the factory. This is normal and this kind of talk happens every year. Although the economic headwinds are strong in China we do not see any signs of massive issues there today.
Steve talked about some of the good news for Amazon Sellers which includes the idea that some FBA fees are being lowered. He went on to suggest that prices will remain elastic and bend with the supply demand curve as it always has. It is welcome to see these fees lowered, but Steve pointed out that using 3PLs or other inventory staging ideas is a smart way to prepare yourself for future unanticipated price hikes which are inevitable.
If you are interested in hanging out with Steve he will be in Costa Rica from Feb 13th-20 at a mastermind event.
