You’ve probably heard of Amar Patel. He’s a legendary entrepreneur who helps businesses develop, manufacture, sell, store, and ship nutritional supplements. Added to that, he has a net worth of about $8.5 million.
Patel was born and raised in New Jersey. He quit his job at 19 to start his own business. That was no simple decision because his family, being of Indian descent, wanted him to become a doctor, a lawyer, or an engineer. It's like…enterprise? Who cares about that? Well, Amar was about to give them a show and prove them wrong.
He started by developing his own brand of supplements. And in doing so, he saw, firsthand, how skeevy producers of supplements would prey on newbies. They would basically tell you exactly what you wished to hear. “We are affordable; quick turnarounds; amazing quality; order as much or as little as you would like,” they would have said. Of course, you would bite, not knowing any better.
Next thing you know, you’re paying Christian Dior rates for thrift shop style supplements. And having them can take months (not weeks). There’s also a possibility they won’t be made of entirely legal ingredients. But hey: no one will ever know because you've blown your entire budget and now you've got nothing left to market and advertise.
Unfortunately, this is very normal for most supplement marketing companies. That is, unless you're lucky enough to work with Amar, who has now made it his mission for his customers to detach from this whole thing (namely, businesses listed on the Inc 500 and Forbes, with budgets of half a million and up). The Outcome? Good additions. Well finished clients. And for Amar's customers? Better margins and extra revenue.
Amar Patel has really pushed boundaries and worked his way onto the millionaires’ list while staying true to his ethics and principles.
