Do you think of Amazon as the place where you SPEND your money, or as the place where you EARN your money?
For 99/100 people, it’s the former.
They think of Amazon as they place they buy stuff.
There is 1 New Age Conqueror though, out of every 99 average Joes, who uses Amazon to make a killing.
Here is one of them, yours truly, giving a speech on stage at a conference in which 1500+ Amazon Brands paid over $4000 to participate. In that same event, Richard Branson, the billionaire owner of Virgin Airlines spoke a couple years earlier.
That room was jam packed with Amazon entrepreneurs, from “beginners” making “just” $20,000 to the…”sharks”.
Who are the sharks?
Multi-million dollar brands and sellers that are generating hundreds of thousands in sales every month, some even millions – PER MONTH!
This is me with one of them, Elizabeth Herrera (aka Hurricane Liz), who is an $1,000,000 a month Amazon Seller.
You see, those 99 average Joes don’t see the opportunity the 1 New Age Conqueror sees.
When I tell about this to average Joes, they come up with excuses like “I don’t know where to get started from” or “I don’t have enough money to start a digital business on Amazon”
The latter, is one of the most common things I hear from people about starting a business on Amazon.
“That takes a lot of money. I don’t have that much money to invest.”
And that’s a BIG misconception about selling on Amazon.
True, you need SOME money to start. But not nearly as much as you would think.
In fact, even if you have a lot of money on your hands, I would advise you NOT to invest a lot at the beginning.
You see, most people think that you need to buy huge quantities of a product, and to either have a huge garage, or rent a warehouse to store them.
Yes, you get better margins when you buy huge quantities, but it’s not necessary.
You can start with only 10, or 20, or 50 units of a product.
That also helps to test a market, before you invest in a market.
You must have the ability to adapt and change your plan. If you test your market first with a lower quantity, you can get an idea if this is the right market for you.
As for storage, you don’t have to store them anywhere!
Amazon does that for you, thanks to their Fulfillment by Amazon service.
What this means is that you give the manufacturer the address of the Amazon warehouse, and once it’s there, Amazon takes care of everything.
This truly is the the opportunity of a lifetime.
I guarantee you won’t regret it.
Amazon has already made Jeff Bezos the richest man in the world.
The richest man in the world right now, built a 100 billion dollar fortune via the internet.
Why are people still not learning how to start a digital business?

Amazon is a rising tide, that will carry you with it all the way up to the top.
Isn’t It Too Late to Start an Amazon Business?
When I talk to people about starting an Amazon business, and how it’s a great way to start your own business, I often hear from them:
“Yea’, that’s nice, but now it’s too late. That opportunity has passed.”
But that couldn’t be more wrong!
Amazon is growing RA-PI-DLY!
Each week, they have more and more customers and their market share is bigger every day.
That means that there’s a great opportunity for people to start their businesses on Amazon, and to make serious money.
Some analysts say that in the next 5 years, Amazon will grow each year by 20%.
That’s HUGE! (It’s actually in the running to be the first trillion dollar company!)
Amazon has become so big, that they even started buying retailers like WholeFoods. There are rumors that they plan to buy some other big names.
Roughly, 300 MILLION people are buying from Amazon.
In the US, Amazon has over 80 million Prime members, who pay $99 per year, so they could get free fast shipping and other perks.
And these numbers are constantly growing.
That is a huge number of buyers.
And they all need products! YOUR PRODUCTS
So, I’d argue confidently that this opportunity hasn’t passed, it’s only just begun.
And you should take advantage of it.
The Chinese have a proverb: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The 2nd best time is now.”
Does It Take a Lot Of Time To Start, Grow & Run an Amazon Business?
I understand why you might be wondering about that.
You think you “don’t have time”
This is a ridiculously common excuse I hear for not starting a digital business.
It’s amazing how fast you can succeed when you let go of excuses and complaints.
— Damian Prosalendis (@dareandconquer) November 15, 2017
Why do I find it ridiculous?
Because you and I, as well as everyone else on this planet, have one thing in common.
That’s how much each one of us have each day at our disposal.
Jeff Bezos. Mark Zuckerberg. Donald Trump. Arnold Schwarzenegger
Name any person on this planet.
None of them has more than 24 hours in a day.
So how come some people get a lot of things done in a day, while others can’t do one single thing?
If we all have the same hours in a day, then it can’t be the “lack of time”, right?
It’s what you DO with our time that matters. The way you manage it is what counts and makes the difference.
I do not care how “busy” you think you are and how you believe you have “no time” left.
These are nonsense excuses, and I will prove you why:
Let’s say you sleep/rest 8 hours per day.
You’re left with 16 hours.
And let’s say you have a full-time 9-5 job. And you work for 8 hours there, plus 2 hours to commute to and from work. You’re left with 6 hours.
And let’s assume that you EVEN have kids, and you want to spend some time with them. Take 2-3 hours for that.
And now you’re left with 3-4 hours.
You can watch reruns of Seinfeld. You can watch sports. Or you can actually work on your side business.
EVERYBODY has that 3-4 hours left. You do. But how do you use it?
It’s your choice.
So, you’d better say:
“I don’t have time to work on a side business because I am wasting 3 hours every afternoon [insert your time-wasting activity]”
Instead of saying that you don’t have time.
You’re lying to yourself if you do that, and you know it…
Now, are 3-4 hours enough to build a successful, profitable and stable business?
I’ve seen a lot of people do just that with only a couple hours a day.
Which still leaves you 2 hours of relaxation time at night, or 1 hour relaxation and 1 hour to workout!
Do you have other responsibilities, and you have only an hour or two per day? OK, start with that.
Do you want more time? The key to more time is systemization, preparation, and automation.
An Amazon Business can be streamlined. It gives you a system where you just need to implement. The hard work is done for you.
Just follow the system and take back your time.
Without a system, you don't own a business. You ARE the business.
— Damian Prosalendis (@dareandconquer) October 22, 2017
We all make choices. Every. Single. Day.
Choices that affect something you can never get back.
With only 2-3 hours a day, you can surely build your Amazon Business to 6-figures and beyond.
Will This “Amazon Business” Thing Work For Anyone?
After all, you might have tried to make money with a digital business again and failed.
You might have made just a little bit of money, but wasted a great deal of time.
You might have been told lies by gurus and aspiring profiteers who sold you useless junk and ran away with your money, drinking it off in Mojitos under the warm Hawaii sun.
So, you are now wondering:
- “Will I waste my time and energy on this, without any return?”
- “I am busy, I am not sure if it’s worth it to me to give this a part of my already limited time”
Whenever you are faced with something new, something that you’re doing for the first time, you often think how that ‘something’ might not be the right thing for you.
Or that it might not work for you.
That’s a very normal, natural, feeling.
That’s your brain being careful about doing something that it’s not familiar with.
The “trick” is to feed your brain with enough information, so it won’t be “scared” anymore.
Remember the Amazing Selling Machine Summit I mentioned in the beginning of this thread, where I gave my speech in front of 1500+ people?
That was my FIRST EVER speech on stage, in front of an audience that speaks a language which is not my native, and I went up there without any preparation, and played it by ear.
That was fucking SCARY!
They say public speaking is more frightening to people than the fear of death.
Imagine how that fear of public speaking is amplified, if for your first speech, you have to speak to a MASSIVE audience, in your non-native tongue, and be judged by all of them!
Nonetheless, went up there though, made it work, and killed it.
Those who are overly fearful of everything, never succeed with anything.

When I stepped down out of the stage, everyone came to talk to me.
There was a line of people lined up to say “hi” and ask for my advice.
Would they had come to me if I acted like a whiny little scared baby boy and didn’t grab the bull by the horns up there?
So the answer is yes, this will work for anyone.
For anyone who doesn’t act like a whiny little scared baby and grabs the bull by the horns!
If you still don’t want to take my word for it, let me tell you about some people I met at the Amazing Selling machine Summit in Las Vegas:
Hutch for example, started his business not because he had that “entrepreneurial fire.”
He joined because he needed money, so he could save his nephews from going to a foster home. It worked for him.
John Gill was a cop.
He wanted freedom.
He is now running an 8-figure Amazon business. AND, he taught his son to start his own, also successful, business.
Chandra got laid off TWICE in a very short period of time.
Now, he’s running a very successful business.
Anica was a hotel manager…in Paris!
She wanted more time with her kids, so she started her own business, leveraging the power of Amazon.
As you can see, everyone has a unique story.
All unique professional and personal backgrounds.
It worked for them.
Are these people in any way better than you?
Are thousands other sellers who have started their own successful businesses in any way more qualified than you?
The answer is NO.
The vast majority of them are people just like you and me. Each with their own struggles, goals, dreams, values, desires, and life positions…
The only difference is that they made a leap of faith, and followed a proven step-by-step process to achieve their goals.
They dared and conquered.
“But How Do I Start?” You May Ask
If you want to learn more about selling on Amazon, then this Free Training is a must watch.
My friends Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback who organized the Amazing Selling Machine Summit (where I have my speech on July 2017 in Las Vegas) have done a great job in creating this free training.
eCommerce is on the rise. Amazon is on the rise.
It’s now easier than ever to grab your share of the pie (and it might not stay like that for a long time).
The only thing you are missing?
A tested step-by-step system that helps you start and grow your own real, lasting business.
This training gives you the blueprint to get you started.
What do you have to lose?
Nothing, because it’s totally free to watch.
Oh, by the way, watch it immediately because the last time Jason and Matt released this training, they only left it up on the web for 7 days.
This time, they told me they will take it down again, although they are not sure exactly when.
So, go watch it right now, before they take it down. And if you happen to click the link and see it’s taken down, I am sorry.
You missed a very very rare opportunity.
I already watched it, and it truly is … Amazing.
Until next time,
Keep Daring and Conquering,
