Today listeners, we are privileged today to have a very special guest named Rus Hughes on our show.
Rus, is a systems architect. He has been working online since 2002 and been an entrepreneur since 2012. His background is in development and systems administration. During his career, he has worked with small startups and large enterprises to develop, scale and maintain various styles of web, data and telecoms applications used by schools, hospitals banks and governments. Since 2014 he’s also been selling physical products on Amazon.com.
Recently he’s entwined his love of systems and Amazon knowledge to create Amazooka.com, a SaaS to help Amazon sellers understand their customers more and sell more products.
Here is what I love about Rus….
He is humble, unassuming and incredibly generous. I have seen Rus in action and can tell you point blank that he is more concerned with creating products that add value and truly helping people than he is about making money. He has a high level of integrity, works hard when he needs to and delegates as much as possible. He is a master analyzer, and can take one look at what you're doing with your business, give some quick advice that can catapult sales, and skyrocket your conversion rates. He has an incredible track record of working online including creating a 6-figure business in less than a year. Rus has one of the most incredible and exciting stories of anyone that has stayed in The Entrepreneur House that he shares that with us in this episode.
