Meet Amar.

Amar is an adventure traveller who has spent the last 10 years building businesses on the road and now helps other entrepreneurs grow theirs.


Amar started in the world of blogging back in 2009, a pipe dream cooked up in his friend’s kitchen while he contemplated The Four Hour Work Week and ate feta cheese. Two hours later Gap Year Escape was born which resulted in a 10 year adventure exploring the 7 continents.
(Read his story on Business Insider).


From hanging out with penguins in Antarctica and climbing dunes in Namibia to walking the tracks in Sri Lanka and exploring Honduran ice age reefs in a submarine, Amar experienced all of this and more all whilst working on his online businesses.


Amar expanded his portfolio to include Suave Grooming, Nerd Bear and Amar Eats and came to the realisation that his passion lay in growing brands.


More recently, he founded Amar Digital a full service digital marketing agency that helps entrepreneurs and startups grow their business without the hefty price tag. He also contributes his knowledge on Forbes and Entrepreneur.


Now Amar likes to inspire audiences about travel, being a digital nomad and also lifting the veil on marketing techniques that bloggers and brands can implement in-house. Amar has spoken at startup events and even does guest lecturers at universities. He can also help market an event using his social following.
