If Amazon can be a money-making machine, Grant’s guest Brad DeGraw surely knows how to operate it; starting with 100 dollars and making a thousand times that in the first year then scaling up to seven figures, Brad learned the downside of reselling and then started to go after his own brands, first with white labels then his own products. He also helps other people get their business running and shares the reasoning behind it, his amazing philosophy on hiring and how he wants his employees to make mistakes while keeping the company’s moral stances in focus… and on top of that, some pretty good relationship advice: accept the terms.
