08 Oct October 8, 2021 – One Billion Sales Shaahin Cheyene and Better Connecting Susan McPherson
Do NOT sell your hours! It is the worst trap ever invented.
It’s where dreams go to die!
Shaahin Cheyene is an Iran-born American businessman and award-winning filmmaker. He is currently the founder and current CEO of the companies Accelerated Intelligence, a maker of nutritional supplements, and Victory Films, a documentary film production company. Shaahin went from sleeping in his car to building a multi-million dollar empire that spanned the globe by the age of 18, earning him an international reputation as the mastermind of the “smart drug” movement and garnering the fierce attention of federal authorities. His legal party drug, “Herbal Ecstacy,” took the music world by storm, putting this ordinary young man on an extraordinary collision course with a life of fame, fortune, and high-flying excess. But the higher you fly, the further the fall. With Big Pharma, disgruntled drug dealers, and federal regulators all itching to pull him down, how does one man fight to keep this wild ride alive?
