My Online Book Arbitrage Showdown With Peter Valley

Peter Valley Zen Arbitrage

January 20, 2019 was a special day for me. My readers and I interviewed Peter Valley (above right), the legendary online book sourcing and Amazon selling expert. You may also know Peter as ther creator of Zen Arbitrage and FBAMastery. I bet you didn't know that Peter is also the the world's most published author on Amazon selling.

This interview was special as I've been a fan of Peter Valley for several years but I never got to meet him until my birthday when I had the honor of his visit to my home in Las Vegas! If you missed the interview, here's the full replay: youtu.be/0xvV2P1nvpU
