After graduating from Auburn University with a degree in civil engineering, Greg Mercer found himself working a 9-5 corporate job. To escape from his mundane work life, he started selling products on Amazon. In the beginning, he was using the wholesale method but eventually transitioned over to manufacturing his own products. He was able to match and then exceed his salary as a civil engineer relatively quickly, so Greg decided to quit the corporate world and dive into entrepreneurship full time. He took his knowledge and experience selling on Amazon and created a tool to help others sell on Amazon successfully as well. Thus, Jungle Scout was born.
