I'm going to be teaching peeps how I raised $50,000 through crowd funding and how the money raised from that is all going to build out an amazing App Education + Platform. (App Code 2.0...which is being released next week!)
It's almost like I got "kick start" for this new business...pretty awesome. Got an idea for something? I know EVERYONE has that ONE idea that they know would make it BIG. Well you can RAISE money for that idea BEFORE you even spend a dime on the business. It's really quite amazing to be honest with ya...I thought my campaign would flop!
Anyway - I'm going to be sharing my exact campaign as a case study and showing you how I did it. Not to mention I'll be talking about some other wacky things...you know me! lol.
It's going to be educational, fun, and pretty much mind blowing content. It's also going to be LIVE for 3 hours and there will be NO REPLAY.
Register here ASAP before seats fill up:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765
And when things don’t go as planned - keep moving forward.
DO things differently. Don’t settle for ANYTHING less. Pick up the pace when you need too or slow down.
Trust your instinct...and have fun!
So, when I started…I was waking up at 7am, going to my regular job, coming home at 6pm and then I would work on my online business from 8pm to 2am. Then wake up at 7am for work again.
I was busting my ass everyday trying get this online thing to work and was working two jobs -- my regular job + my online business. 2+ years went by with a little bit of success.
Then…7 years ago in November of 2005…I quit my job after making 4X my salary in 2 months.
I can't believe it's been that long…7 years. Seems like only yesterday I was putting up blogs, building back links, doing PPC arbitrage, creating products and doing everything myself…from the programming, to the design, to the marketing, to the copywriting…EVERYTHING. I did EVERYTHING myself…and if I didn't know how…I would teach myself through hours of Google searches. I was dedicated…I was motivated…I was driven.
7 years and $20+ million dollars in business later…all I can say is that I'm so incredibly grateful for everything that my online business has done for me and my families lives.
I wish I could say I enjoyed all 7 years…but it wasn't all perfect. Along with the success came many failures too. Besides the huge ego that I suffered with for years…I also made some stupid business decisions. In fact, I can't believe how many bad decisions I have made…to the point where I lost millions of dollars and everything around me was just making me depressed. Truth be told though…all those bad decisions were meant to be and came with multi-BILLION dollar lessons within themselves…I just had to find them! :)
And so I guess the reason for this post is to let you know about the BIGGEST realization I've come to over the last 7 years...
When you focus on the money…it usually comes with negative consequences. Sure it's great to have goals and think about how much money you want to make…but be prepared! Because if you ONLY think about the money, yourself, and all the cool things you'll buy…and you DON'T LOVE every aspect of your business…and I mean every nook and cranny…then be prepared for a bumpy ride.
But if you go inside yourself to find your true passion and you pursue it with all your might, all your dedication and all your love…then everything else just seems to fall into place.
And then business becomes nothing like "work" at all…it all starts to feel like it is being led by divinity. I can't even explain what has been happening lately…ever since I turned towards pursuing my purpose/passion…awesome people AND money seem to just be flocking to what I am building...
From making a documentary about ancient civilizations, to discovering ancient free energy sources, to my marketing consulting company, to making the best app training platform + software in the world, to new personal dev products, to our non profit…I'm blessed to be surrounded by a ridiculously great team and incredible partners…all heart centered with a mission to TRANSFORM THE WORLD.
And then of course there is YOU…without YOU…none of this would have been possible…so THANK YOU…for supporting me and trusting me through this incredible journey.
This empire I've been building behind the scenes is about to blow up and for the first time in 4 years I can say…
"I can't wait for the next year to unfold and show it's magnificence."

Affiliate Marketer. Technology Geek. Traffic Guru. Business Growth Master.
Although Amish Shah is an expert in many areas, he is best described as a savvy new-age internet entrepreneur. Amish is a visionary and a futurist with many of his ideas and concepts being larger than life. Amish is best known for developing automated tools and software as well as his impressive traffic strategies. He is also very popular from his popular “Magic Bullet” courses and seminars as well as his record-setting 6-figure daily affiliate marketing earnings that changed the face of affiliate marketing forever and created a buzz no one will soon forget. Do you remember all that buzz about the “$100k Man”? That was him!
In just 4 years from his original start with affiliate marketing (in 2003), Amish had run thousands of different advertising campaigns in more than 100 different markets. He had tested his campaigns against over 50 different traffic sources and was able to clock in over 105,000,000,000 (yes, ‘billion’) impressions in the process. In those 4 years, Amish managed to bring in $110,000,000 in sales for the advertisers.
Amish eventually went on to build a great campaign tracking and management tool called Hexatrack (now called MB-X). He has developed other software as well from email marketing to advanced campaign tracking systems, his company DigiSpace has built many solutions that help companies with almost all major internet marketing projects.
After a few years of successfully dominating the affiliate marketing scene and becoming one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) super-affiliate at that time, Amish decided in 2008 to launch the first ever Magic Bullet Seminar. Even at $4k a seat, it sold out very fast. As a bonus, attendees received lifetime access to their newest campaign management tool MB-X just for attending!
After the great success with first seminar, Amish launched the Magic Bullet System a year later that taught clients how to build successful affiliate marketing businesses from start to finish using the same tactics and strategies they used themselves to build their own affiliate marketing empire. The Magic Bullet System was $3k and also sold out quickly. He launched the second version of the Magic Bullet System in early January and will be hosting a third Magic Bullet seminar this June in San Diego, CA. These software “launches” brought in over $8 million dollars in sales in 14 days combined.
In 2010, after a great year for DigiSpace, Amish’s company was named the 60th fastest-growing advertising and marketing company in the United States as well as the 10th fastest growing in San Diego, CA by INC Magazine. This success has made Amish a very sought after consultant to high-end clients and businesses looking to expand or increase the results of their internet-based marketing and advertising strategies as well as build their business and increase their bottom lines.
In 2011, DigiSpace was acquired by Bitzio Inc and Amish now focuses on Mobile Apps and acts as the Chief Product Officer for Bitzio, Inc. Bitzio, Inc. is leading the market with mobile apps and technology to fuel mobile apps and mobile app marketing!
Amish continues to work hard to improve himself through personal growth and development. He has learned through his constant growth process to always think positive and not let the little things in life get to him. He continues to share this passion via this website and his newsletter.
Throughout his personal development process, Amish has become very passionate about helping others learn the secrets to personal achievement and enlightenment as well. He is always willing to share his thoughts and views on happiness and success and enjoys connecting with others that are also passionate in their areas of expertise, giving advice wherever he can and always open to hearing others’ experiences and advice as well.
Amish believes that with success you should also give back, which is why he has helped thousands of people secure their financial futures by offering help and advice through his personal blog (Amish-Shah.com) and his internet business courses such as the Magic Bullet System.
Amish Shah has set benchmarks in the internet marketing world by constantly overachieving and defying the odds in every venture he pursues. His successes have spread across the globe, with his businesses grabbing both local and national attention. Amish’s companies have even been nationally recognized by some of the most prestigious recognitions available (such as his recent INC 500 achievement) for their success and exponential growth. Beyond his business, Amish Shah has devoted his life to helping others achieve personal greatness and accomplishments as well through many of his courses, volunteer work and his new non-profit organization. Amish’s hard work and commitment to his business and his life has made him a respected authority in internet marketing and his knowledge of business is no less than apparent as seen through his personal achievements. Amish is a marketer, a mentor, a teacher and an idol for anyone that wishes to break from the chains and stereotypes that may surround them and achieve more than they ever thought possible by believing in themselves and never giving up.
