This week's conversation with Shaahin Cheyene is a classic true life Rags to Riches story. From poor beginnings, Shaahin made more money before he was 20 than most of us could make in many lifetimes. So, although this podcast isn't about building financial wealth, I was intrigued to find out what motivates someone to get out of bed each morning when they don't need to.
Faking his ID, Shaahin found work and lived rough in abandoned buildings or cars. That is where he discovered the Rave Scene and loved it. It fitted his life style, plus there were people making lots of money. This was the era of MDMA or Ecstasy and it was the drug dealers who ran the scene and accumulated wealth.
A life of crime was not what he was looking for, but it did get him thinking about the possibility of making something like Ecstasy that was not illegal.
“I was Foolish enough to not know I could fail”
That naive faith did the trick and Shaahin was successful in developing the first legal Herbal Ecstasy. With equal blind faith, he managed to persuade the drug dealers to believe in him and within just a few years the product was available in 30,000 stores across the USA. Shaahin was not even 20 years old when his company hit $1Billion in sales.
Shaahin Cheyene's story is about making it big early in life and not stopping there. He went on to create more world-changing inventions; the first mind-enhancing Nootropics and early work with Vaping systems. He holds patents on numerous ideas and inventions and has also written 4 books. His latest entitled ‘Billion’ came out last month.
I hope you enjoy this lively exchange with Shaahin Cheyene and that you find inspiration from his story.
