Who is Brock Johnson?
At 27 years old, Brock is the CEO of multiple businesses and is well-known for going from 0 to $6 million in 6 months selling solar eclipse glasses on Amazon. Brock is also the creator of The Last Amazon Course, a comprehensive guide that changes people’s lives by teaching them about how to succeed on Amazon.
Brock Johnson was born in 1992 and raised in Eagan, Minnesota. For the majority of his life he dealt with a variety of health complications. It wasn’t until an incident when he was 18, did he realize something was wrong.
It was during college where he would receive the awakening that would massively shift his life.
While he was in his dorm in between classes, he started breathing irregularly. He took a deep breath of his inhaler and proceeded to head to his next class.
A few moments later he blacked out and fell down a flight of stairs almost breaking his neck. He knew something was up because his health was dramatically declining as he got older.
He visited several doctors to get multiple opinions of what could possibly be wrong with him. They all told him that it’s normal to get light-headed when standing up quickly. He wasn’t satisfied or convinced with these answers.
Never Give Up
He kept searching and finally spoke to a doctor that properly diagnosed his condition. He had Pectus Excavatum.
It was a congenital deformity in which his chest had a caved in appearance. This caused his heart to have to beat twice as hard for him to perform regular activities such as breathing.
In addition, his bad diet caused even worse health issues. To get his condition fixed he underwent one of the five most painful surgeries in the world. Twice.
After the surgery he realized he may not have a lot of time left. Drawing inspiration from people like Tony Robbins, Dave Asprey, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and Gary Vaynerchuk, he set out on a mission to impact the world.
His current goal is to create a tech company and build an application centered around building good habits and boosting happiness and gratitude.
Online Gaming Turns Into A New Game
One of his techniques for making money involved farming for rare items in the popular MMO World of Warcraft and selling them on an online marketplace for real cash.
He recognized during early mornings and late nights was when there was a low volume of people online. As a result, he spent most of his time during those periods farming for super rare items. He strategically skipped school.
Turning Copper Into Gold
Another period of his life was when he recognized the demand for copper was starting to increase. Brock realized that essentially 1 penny was worth 2 cents.
So he went out to banks and started converting his cash into pennies. He purchased an industrial-sized machine that melted down the pennies and sold the copper for twice the value.
Turning Surplus Into Surplus Cash
In college while Brock was searching for furniture at the university surplus store, he found crazy deals on printers, computers, and other electronics. He flipped those goods for huge profits. One time he even bought a microphone for $10 and sold it online for $500.
He really started getting into entrepreneurship when Radio Shack was going out of business. He realized a huge arbitrage opportunity and started buying their items for huge discounts and selling them online for a profit.
It wasn’t until he started doing E-Commerce in college did he find success.
Finding Success With Amazon
He learned everything he could about Amazon FBA and started selling products through his online store. He went negative in his bank account selling his first seven products.
Then he saw a huge opportunity in the solar eclipse early in 2017. He started selling solar eclipse glasses a few months before the event and went from $0 to $6 million in 6 months.
Since then, he’s been selling other products and consistently makes above seven figures.
In December 2017, after a meeting with Gary Vaynerchuk, he realized there was a huge barrier to entry in learning Amazon FBA and E-Commerce.
He sought out in creating the most comprehensive course on Amazon FBA with the help of other 7 and 8 figure sellers.
His mission is to impact as many people as he can by allowing them to learn the skills that made him millions for as low as possible.
He wants to give enormous value to those who are willing to take control of their finances and give other people the opportunity to create their own business through Amazon FBA without the high barrier to entry.
