From poverty to pushing (legal) drugs: billionaire Amazon business expert shares how he achieved the American dream We’re Making Conversations about building a business on Amazon Count! Bustling to billionaire

How did this man go from living in poverty to achieving the American dream?

After growing up in what he felt was mediocrity, this week’s episode’s guest Shaahin Cheyene decided that enough was enough and left Iran for the US.

Once there, he invested all his energy into building a legal alternative to ecstasy- which is still one of America’s most popular rave culture drugs.

The secret sauce

He has managed to turn around his life by starting small and working hard until he reached the top of the earning ranks.

He’s now living the life many of us dream of, hanging with celebrities, driving fast and expensive cars, and flying around the world first class or in private jets.

What you will get out of listening

This episode will explore how Iranian immigrant Shaahin achieved success in such an unlikely manner, as well as what we can learn from him about entrepreneurship and perseverance. Also, how to apply the systems and processes demonstrated by Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, so that you can enjoy similar success!

You’ll learn:

  • What Shaahin did to make the start on his new journey
  • How you can model Shaahin’s process to launch your own successful business on Amazon
  • Some useful tips on leverage
  • A couple of good book recommendations to inspire

More about Shaahin

Shaahin is considered one of the leading global minds on what’s next in e-commerce, Amazon and the internet.

He is described as the “Willy Wonka Of Generation X” by the Observer and Newsweek and is one of the most forward thinkers in business – with his Amazon Mastery Course he acutely recognises trends and patterns early on the Amazon platform to help others understand how these shifts impact markets and consumer behaviour.

Wendy Harris Making Conversations Count Podcast

What can I tell you about me?! I'm very good at getting other people to talk about themselves. Having been in the sales arena for over 3 decades, my skillset has developed to enable others to introduce their services to other businesses. Talking about myself always feels odd.

But here goes. I've made over 2 million phone calls in my career, helped 1000's people pick up the phone and have better conversations which has leaked into life in general, I've created billions of £££'s in opportunities to do business.

I love nothing more than listening to other people's stories and gently guiding people to share their insights with others.

Whenever I'm in training it's always interactive and fun. I truly believe we learn by being involved.

It's why I started my podcast, to share these stories and be helpful to the business community. I also wrote a book with many of my training exercises in it for those starting out as the demands of your cash flow when you get going mean there's often a wheel not oiled as it should be.

For me, conversations is where it all happens.
