Andrews Steinmayer, on his Amazon Success Selling Journey
Hey, my name is Andrew Steinmayer and I’m from Charleston, South Carolina and I have been in tech finance for about 12 or so years at this point.
What originally drew me to Sophie I guess, I heard about her on the amazing seller podcast with Scott Voelker.I was immediately drawn to Sophie because she just seemed like a very genuine person who had found success and who was looking to help others.
In this space, it’s really hard to tell who really wants to help you, and she just really was the first person that I connected with. I immediately wanted to work with Sophie. And she had also just sold her business, it seemed like she was where I wanted to be in my life.
I’ve always wanted to have a successful business, but not at the expense of my family. There’s something that I’ve always called absentee Dad or absentee father, and I have no desire to trade success for the expense of not seeing my kids grow up. I have a wife, a son and a daughter on the way in about a month, and those are my “why?” There’s a great book by Simon Sinek, Start with Why, and I think Sophie had the same why. So for her it was being home with her children.
Once I finally started working with Sophie, you know, it was just validation because she, her kids would come in in the background playing, or she’d poke her head out, and that’s what I wanted. She had the definition of where I wanted to be in a few years.
So I wanted to work with Sophie immediately, and I think everything with her coaching surpassed what I had expected. I started working with Sophie January of the following year, and actually within a year I had four or five products, and I was already selling six figures coming up, probably, had broken a quarter million. I was nearing half a million in sales for that year.
Then the following year, what really surprised me was that it happened faster than I expected. All my income was definitely not coming from Amazon. I even branched out and started doing some consulting, but that was all a result of being trained by somebody like Sophie, so, I would highly recommend working with her.
No reservations whatsoever. And yeah, she’s just who she says she is. She is a coach. I think a lot of people have the misperception that a coach is gonna build a business for them. It’s still your business. She’s very real about that. So if you have that mentality and you want to have a different lifestyle, now I’m able to be at home with my kids and make my own schedule.
I still work very hard and I’m still growing my Amazon business, but I’m hoping to have an exit you know, in the next year or two the same way that Sophie did. So, if you’re thinking about working with Sophie, she’s definitely very trustworthy.
You know, she has the success. She sold two businesses, she has the track record but not only that, she’s just a good honest person to work with, and she really wants to see you succeed.
So, no reservation at all in recommending Sophie. She has that lifestyle that everybody wants and she’s disciplined about how she went about achieving that. It’s not just titles and career and moving on and making money, and hauling your family around the country in order to do that. It’s really recognizing that there are opportunities today where you can be successful financially and still have the freedom to carve out a lifestyle that works for you. It’s still hard work, but it’s on your terms.
So, again, there are many times Sophie kind of talked me off the ledge, I wanted to stop. I had a few times where I didn’t want to place certain orders, and it just really helps to have a sounding board. And you also get that with her, and there’s obviously a group that she’s curated with a bunch of likeminded people. So, the positive energy, just being able to connect with other people that are out there trying to do this, because you’re not gonna find these people day to day at your job or even around your family.
You just need that connection, you need that mentor, so, yet again, no reservation at all. Highly recommend Sophie. She’s the real deal. Hopefully that helps you make your decision.
