Today’s guest Dean Soto is the founder of Online Academy Empire, the place to learn more about how you can earn with drop shipping from Amazon.

In today’s episode, Dean shares the story that led to his current business which allows him to sell and profit significantly even though he does not have his own products. Dean talks about the things he learned about drop shipping, marketing, and making money on Amazon. Living in the country with six children, he also shares how working online, outsourcing, and automation help him be efficient in his business as he allocates more time to and prioritizes his family.
