Do you want to learn more about ways to do business online? Are you looking for strategies to achieve rapid growth in your business? Do you want to become a better storyteller and build more influence into your business and marketing?

Our special guest Shaahin Cheyenne will answer these and other questions about entrepreneurship, business growth and doing business online.

Shaahin Cheyenne has been called many things in his life including the “Willy Wonka of Generation X,” but his favorite is simple: the world’s leading Amazon industry expert.

Shaahin is the Founder of the brain nutrition startup Accelerated Intelligence (AI). He’s also an award-winning business mogul, author, filmmaker and inventor of Herbal Ecstacy, the nootropic that sparked the (100% legal) Smart Drug Movement.

His serial entrepreneurial career has spanned more than 30 years, earning over $350 Million. His Amazon products have outpaced Fortune 500 companies’ sales on the platform, selling millions of units worldwide. Many of these multi-million-dollar companies noticed, which led Shaahin to become one of the world’s most sought-after Amazon experts.

Shaahin’s Amazon sales approach for start-ups and Fortune 500’s is the same approach he uses to accelerate his own success: a mix of proprietary software, Amazon promotions, copywriting, Amazon ads and social proof.
