001: How We Started A 6 Figure Business Selling Hankies So My Wife Could Stay At Home With The Kids

Steve Chou Episode 1

Because this is the very first episode of the My Wife Quit Her Job podcast, I thought that it was only fitting that I would be the first guest.

In this episode, I take you back to the very beginning when my wife and I first started our online store selling wedding handkerchiefs. You’ll learn how we got started, how we stumbled upon our niche and how our business gave birth to a popular blog and an online course on how to start an ecommerce store.

Finally, you’ll learn about my motivations for the podcast and what’s in store for future episodes. Enjoy!

    Launched FBA effort January after attending FBA Boston Seminar.
    Not pleased to date, not experiencing the guaranteed success pitched at the seminar. SO, been seeking other opportunities outside the current relationship.
    Digging a pretty deep rut myself seeking a product with Jungle Scout, SaleHoo, etc.
    Working this full time. Sales are increasing, running out of product, unable to find profitable products to sell. Confident in the model, just need to find the skus.

    Am following up with it

    I’m late to the party and wanted to start listening to your podcast from the beginning. Since the older episodes aren’t available on Itunes I searched for your blog. Unfortunately somehow this episode starts playing and then suddenly for no reason the episode re-starts from the beginning all over again. So basically all that is available is the beginning of this episode. Is there any way that can be fixed so I can listen to the whole episode #1?
