Amanda Goldman-Petri, also known as “AGP”, is a survivor of poverty, child abuse, rape, teen pregnancy, and near death. As Valedictorian of her elementary, middle, and high school, she overcame all odds and was awarded a congressional nomination to the United States Naval Academy, Merchant Marines Academy, and West Point Military Academy, as well as a full-ride scholarship to Johns Hopkins University.
Before embarking on her freshman year at Johns Hopkins University, Amanda was walking across the street when she was hit by an 80-year old man speeding in his minivan at 50+ mph. Her femur broken, skull split open, and head one-foot away from being crushed by a passing 18-wheeler, she barely survived. After spending a week in shock trauma and months learning to walk again, Amanda continued on to college, only to discover she was 5 months pregnant with her first child, at the young age of 18.
Amanda raised her child while working 3 jobs to pay the mortgage for her mother, so that she could finally leave an abusive relationship, and still went on to graduate in 4 years with 7 honors and 3 degrees in Writing, Chinese, and Russian. Still soul-searching for her purpose, Amanda took a job as a social media marketing intern with marketing legend Mara Glazer. It was there that she fell in love with online marketing.
Amanda quit her jobs and left graduate school to open up her own business at 21 years old. After her fair share of trial and error, Amanda experienced her first $10K month within 4 months at the age of 22. She then went on to earn $150K in 4 months at 23, $120K in 90 days at 25, and a whopping $562K in 4 months at 26. After expanding Market Like A Nerd to over 30 countries and 6 continents, and being featured on 50 podcasts in 60 days, she became known internationally as the “Work Smarter, Not Harder” Online Marketing Coach.
As co-author of the books Light at the End of The Funnel and Empire Builders, and owner of the Award Winning Facebook Group and Podcast, both named after Market Like A Nerd, Amanda has been featured on major media outlets such as Fast Company, Forbes, The Huffington Post, Small Business Trendsetters, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Worth Magazine, International Business Times (and more). She was named one of the Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 by Influencive, an Under 30 Up and Comer by The Tampa Bay Business Journal, and was even dubbed One Of The Top 100 Badass Women To Follow In 2017.
But Amanda doesn’t just get results for herself. She’s also known to have one of the highest client success ratios in the coaching industry. Amanda honed her coaching skills by becoming a Certified Marketing Coach, Certified Money Coach, certified Public Speaker, Certified Email Marketing Specialist, and Certified Law Of Attraction Practitioner. After coining her own “Cash Injection Campaigns” designed to get big financial results for her clients in a short period of time , Amanda clients were able to generate
millions in 30 days or less.
