Business Consultant for Amazon Sellers

As time allows I help Amazon business owners by answering questions on the following topics that sellers may wish to keep confidential rather than post publicly. I also enjoy helping leaders of current Facebook groups. Disclaimer: I cannot offer legal advice.

Trademark Your Brand

Need help? Have questions? I hold 4 certificates and have advised sellers on things to consider and have ready when filing to help prevent delay or refusal.


Protect your work (books, courses, and photographs) from being used without your permission so that a cease and desist order is more effective.

Sales Tax

Questions about collecting Sales Tax, Product Tax Codes or filing? Learn where to get help, and how to fill out the Tax Settings on Amazon.

GS1 Barcodes

Questions about GS1 Barcodes - the pros and cons? How, when and where to register. Labelling products, and sending in stickerless.


There are so many moving parts when setting up promotions. Read our Blog. Prefer someone to personally check your settings? Contact us.

What do you need help with?

My time is limited but I can point you in the right direction of where you can get help if I'm not available or don't have the answer.

I'm Here to Help You

Don't be afraid to reach out.
My name is Karen Holmes. I was born in the U.K. and I have lived in the mid-west United States for over twenty years. I joined Amazon as a 3rd party seller in 2009. I love the opportunity and freedom that comes with running your own online business. There is always something to learn and new challenges. When I am not working on mine or someone else's business, I enjoy time with my family and travelling..
