Martina Chavez is an expert in sales tax compliance over at Avalara and I invited her on the show today to clear the air in regards to everything that is happening with Amazon and nexus when it comes to paying sales tax. Ever since the decision of the supreme court case Wayfair vs South Dakota was handed down, states may now charge tax on purchases made from out of state sellers even if the seller doesn’t have a physical presence in the taxing state. This has enormous implications to ecommerce.
Today I have a special guest on the show, Maria. Maria is a student in my Create A Profitable Online Store Course who is making 6 figures with her business and last week, I invited her to come talk to the other members of the class about her experiences starting her ecommerce business. But instead of celebrating her success as an entrepreneur, I asked her to provide a candid account of her experiences including all of her struggles, her triumphs and how she overcame various obstacles on her journey. This is a very raw episode and in fact, my chat with Maria was not intended for the podcast. But it got such rave reviews from the other students in the class that I decided to publish it for your enjoyment.
Today, I’m really happy to have Tim Schmoyer on the show. Tim is someone who came highly recommended to me by Colin Jones who will be a future guest on this podcast. He is a veteran when it comes to audience growth on YouTube. And he specializes in helping YouTube creators spread their message to reach people online. His channel has over 400K subscribers and this interview comes at an opportune time because I'm actively trying to grow my new show, The 5 Minute Pitch.

Today, I’m thrilled to have Allen Walton on the show. Now Allen is someone who I met at Ecommerce Fuel Live a long time ago but we didn’t really get to know each other until we hung out at Billy Murphy’s Mancation earlier this year. Anyway, Allen runs SpyGuy.com which is an ecommerce store that sells spy equipment online. His store has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, CNBC, Fast Company and he was recently featured on the Tim Ferriss podcast as well. What's cool is that he bootstrapped his company from the ground up and turned it into a solid 7 figure business.
