E374: From Professional Psychologist to 7-Figure Ecommerce Entrepreneur with Kata PhippsApril 5, 2021 in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
We’re inching our way to four hundred episodes, but this might be the first time I’ve talked to someone who got into ecommerce out of desperation—and grew to seven figures at that!
Kata Phipps is a clinical psychologist by trade. She’s married to a military guy, which meant, for years, having to constantly move from one place to another and not being able to settle in and practice her craft.
Out of a mix of chance and desperation, Kata dabbled in ecommerce. She eventually found out that she had a knack for it and built a 7-figure brand within only a year.
In this episode, we talk all about how she got started, how she deals with copycats in the Amazon space, and how joining the Titan Network propelled her even further. We also get Kata’s psychology perspective on current consumer behavior and what trends she thinks are coming our way when lockdowns are finally lifted and vaccines are rolled out.
