This conversation delves far deeper than just Amazon tips.

When Irina Balyurko approached me to be on the show, I was particularly interested to hear how she realized that climbing the corporate ladder was taking her in the opposite direction of how she wanted to live. She took the decision to leave her prestigious role as a VP and go travelling with her husband and at the time, 18 month old son.

In this episode, we dig into into Irina’s story, how she evaluates risk, what it’s like travelling with a young son, and how to be stand out and be successful on Amazon.

The worlds largest online retailer Amazon is a huge opportunity for anyone wanting to explore commerce and selling products online.
