It only took 33 episodes, but I finally got one of the leaders of the Meetup group, Gabe Cossio, on the show to chat about the group and of course… selling on Amazon. We’ve been working to have Gabe come on since the beginning of the podcast and the stars finally aligned.

Gabe has been an avid entrepreneur since he was a young child. He grew up in a household with a single mom who was also an entrepreneur and simply loved to work. That drive was passed to him and he started several of his own businesses before he ever left high school.

Ecomm has his heart however and he loves chatting about it. We spend time discussing our China trip and why it has been so impactful in Gabe’s life and business. We step a little bit into Gabe’s thoughts on the future of ecommerce and why we should be prepared for additional global pandemics.

This was such a fun conversation spanning several different areas of discussion. If you’ve been interested in joining the China trip or just learning more, this is the episode you’ll want to listen to. Gabe is actually the one who coordinates all of our international trips now!
