Amazon’s Empire I work part time at a small health food store in my hometown. I've been working here for 2 and a half years, but it's been in business more than 20 years. Now there's a Whole Foods (owned by Amazon) being built a couple miles away from us. My store isn't renewing our lease next year.. Most small businesses can't compete with the rise of mega retail corporations, and especially not with rise of e-commerce. There's infinitely more selection online and the prices are lower.

What is a Townie? Being a local is a badge of honor- you know where the cool coffee shops are, you have a feel for the local culture, and you wear skinny jeans. [caption id="attachment_745" align="alignnone" width="430"] This guy is a local[/caption] But, being a townie is not something to strive for. At least in New England, we use the term townie to make fun of people who never left their hometowns. The stereotypical version of it is someone you can find most nights of the week at the local bar...

What is COGs? Cost of Goods Sold is exactly what it sounds like. It's the cost of your inventory that has sold.  You need to know this so you can figure out your net profit, and for tax reasons. When I first started reselling I would manually keep track of what I bought each item for, how long it took to sell, how much it sold for and how much it cost to ship. I liked to know my exact profit and total expenses for each item sold- that's why I would...
