Invest in people
When you build your business from the ground up, it can be tempting to think of everyone else as competition. While you should take your competition seriously – don’t be afraid to collaborate and network! You have no idea how making the right connections can come around and serve your brand down the road. Take Scott’s example – he reached out to Chris early on in his ecommerce journey and they started working together. Now Scott and Chris are as thick as thieves!

Don’t focus on products!

As many of you know, these days, Scott is focused on helping sellers like you build a brand that can go the distance. This approach forces you to take a more holistic approach than just chasing a hot product. The future of ecommerce, according to Scott, is brand building – plain and simple.
