This group IS for:
- People wanting to Private Label on Amazon
- People who have no product selling on Amazon yet, but are working hard to make that happen.
- People who are just in the early stages of selling on Amazon but don't have much turnover yet
- People who know it takes time to build a business before sales start coming in - and more time until you can start to take money out.
This group is NOT for:
- Focus on Retail Arbitrage or Wholesale etc. (but we may use both as training vehicles and ways to find good Private Label products)
- People who want to "replace the day job within 3 months" (HINT: they've been sold a pipe-dream)
- Flaky people: people who say they'll do things - then duck out at the last moment.
I HAVE QUESTIONS
Do I have to be at every meeting?
Relax, you can miss the odd meeting! While we'll miss you, it's normal that most of our members will have to miss some of our meetings. As long as you make a decent proportion, you'll still get the momentum, accountability and community you need.
What's the investment?
The full standard price is £97 per month.
The Beta testing places at £49 have now all gone.
But, if you take one of the next 5 spaces, you will pay just £67 a month for as long as you remain a member. However, the first month will cost you just £49 so you can try us out for one month at minimal risk.
Is there a minimum membership period (like 6 months)?
The short answer is: no. You can cancel at any time. However, I'm looking for a relationship, not a one-night stand! You'll gain a huge amount more by getting to know the other mastermind members properly, gaining experience and confidence, and being kept accountable. All of that takes time.
My advice is to come in with the intention of being around for at least 3-6 months. 6-12 months will give you a lot more.
What qualifies you to know about Amazon?
I've been round the block! I've been selling on Amazon since December 2014, done well over $100,000 in sales (equivalent). I've helped mentoring clients since April 2016 and around 20 mastermind members since September 2016. I've interviewed over 30 Amazon experts for the podcast, which has over 200 episodes and has been running since Sept. 2015.
I don't claim to be a power seller yet, let alone a "guru". You can learn from my mistakes - so you don't have to± But I'm well placed to help you get from nowhere to launched.
If I have an uncertain schedule, is there a way to work round this?
Well, on the one hand, yes, we use the robust scheduling technology to get the best dates for our members to maximise the number of meetings each member can make.
On the other hand, there is simply no way to schedule every meeting such that every single mastermind member can attend every single meeting!
If you really need something tailored to your personal schedule, you may need to explore the mentoring programme (Click to check it out).
Don't let this be too much of a barrier. One reason we offer a low price point is so you don't need to worry too much about missing the odd month. If you had a £50 a month gym subscription, you wouldn't probably worry too much about a couple of weeks there for your summer holidays, would you? You can cancel any time if you feel it's not going to work for you.
Can I get started with a couple of thousand pounds?
It's possible - in theory. I've met ONE person who did it. Out of hundreds of people I've met in the Amazon world over the last 3 years.
I don't think anyone has a high chance of success with less than several thousand. The lowest initial inventory capital I'll accept in a new mastermind member is £3000 for that reason.
This is an incredible opportunity - but it's a cash-intensive business model!
Can I replace my day job within 3-6 months?
The short answer: it depends!
The realistic answer: probably not.
For most people, to have the necessary capital for inventory to not only start but continue to grow a business, you'll need to keep the day job, an existing business or managing property (to name the most typical income streams I meet among members). That means you're only going to have limited time to devote to your Amazon business.
By the time you've found decent product niches, sold some generic products, found your winning products and got samples, done your negotiation etc., it could well be several months from starting out to getting your first 1-3 private label products selling.
It can be done quicker if you simply risk more money and put more time into it. That's a combination of your capital, time and personal risk tolerance and family situation. We can help you assess that in your first meeting if you like.
And now for more brutal honesty:
You'll be required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and a Non-Compete Agreement (NCA).
You'll be expected to share your results in physical meetings (once you've got to know and trust the other members)
(Just as fellow members will be expected to share honestly with you.)
If you have less than £3000 for inventory, we can't have you in the group - your chances of success are too low. Sorry!
You'll need to be willing to subscribe for £97 a month. While you can cancel at any time, I'm not looking for a one-night stand. I want a relationship! We are building a great team of people - we want you to be part of it.
Ready to apply?
Here’s How It Works
First, you’ll need to enter your REAL email address below. Then you’ll be taken to an application where I ask you all sorts of invasive questions about your business. OK – they’re not that invasive. I’m just really trying to weed out the “tyre kickers” here.
What happens next - usually, on the basis of this written application, we can assess whether it's a good fit for you, the group and me. If so, you'll find out immediately. And if it's a good fit, you'll be taken straight to the page to subscribe.
If it's borderline, we may schedule a chat with Michael via Skype or phone to see if we really are a good match.
Nobody will pressure you or hassle you. If you want in, great. If not, no problem. We’re cool either way.
I’m only looking for high-calibre people to join the Zero-to-Hero Mastermind. I’ll review applications on a first come, first-serve basis.
