Show Notes

In this episode of the Road to Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Shaahin Cheyene. Shaahin is one of the world's top Amazon consultants, an award winning business mogul, author and filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California. Shaahin is currently the founder of a brain nutrition startup Accelerated Intelligence where he is positioning the enterprise to be the forerunner in the brain nutrition supplements market.

Shaahin is the quintessential American success story. Born in Tehran, Iran in 1975, his family immigrated to America in 1980, during the tumultuous Islamic Revolution. As a young boy, Shaahin knew he was destined for entrepreneurship. Cheyene’s passion progressed into several booming small businesses, including a bicycle repair service. He read financial magazines voraciously and gleaned inspiration from the works of Dale Carnegie and Napoleon Hill. As a teenager in the 1990’s he jump started his career by inciting and leading the “Smart Drug Movement” with his invention of Herbal Ecstacy, an energizing, herbal supplement designed to stimulate the body. With Herbal Ecstacy, Shaahin founded his first business venture, Global World Media (no longer in operation), a maker of legal intoxicants. He learned early in his career about guerilla branding and he still uses it to sell his products today.

Shaahin has invented over 200 award-­winning products, selling millions of units worldwide. After pioneering the breakthrough formulation for Herbal Ecstacy, he expanded his company’s offerings with Ecstacy Cigarettes, an herbal alternative to tobacco that many have used to quit smoking. It went on to become the most successful herbal cigarette in the world. Branded the “Willy Wonka of Generation X” Shaahin has been likened to such divergent entrepreneurs as Bill Gates and P.T. Barnum. In the early 2000’s, Shaahin's career naturally evolved and matured. He began to work with several major pharmaceutical companies to broadcast the technologies and benefits of herbal medicines to the mainstream. In this process Shaahin was responsible for proliferation of several plant medicines now used in popular naturopathic health regimens.

In 2000 Shaahin invented, patented and developed a revolutionary new medicine delivery technology dubbed the Vapir Vaporizer. His invention quickly spearheaded the then burgeoning vaporization industry. He also authored the definitive book on the science of Vaporization, Vapor: The Art and Science of Inhaling Pure Plant Essences. Shaahin prepared Vapir for the public markets but subsequently sold the invention to a private investment group in Silicon Valley in 2006. The Vapir Vaporizer sales are still in the millions worldwide. Shaahin credits the creation of his top selling health supplement Excelerol to his career long love of naturopathic herbal remedies. He remains true to his goals to nurture and help improve the health of the masses with herbal alternatives to harsh chemicals.
