You’re now listening to Hack and Grow Rich with Shaahin Cheyene and his co-host Bart Baggett. There was a point in time where you probably transitioned into kind of where you are now this entrepreneurial CEO business you know, entrepreneur sense and kind of bridge me into what you’re doing now. What was there a pivot or did it gradually just go into the realm of Amazon and some of the amazing things you do now or was there a story or a point in time that transitioned you?
Yeah, I’ll tell you a great story. So now all these drug dealers became legitimized. They had official businesses, they bought territories, they got distributorships. We’re in 32000 retail stores franchises. We’re in urban outfitters, warehouse music Larry Flint got us through all the sex stores and all the hustler stores. So our product was in 30-32,000 doors retail. This is pre-internet. I get the news that we broke a billion dollars in revenue. Sam Donaldson was outside wanting me to be on nightline. I did that show. It’s on YouTube. I was on Montel Williams, two Newsweek covers, LA Times, London Observer, all that stuff. I had an exotic car collection. A collection Lamborghinis, Ferraris. I got the brand new NSX, one of the best ones I bought at that time you know, boats, planes all that stuff flying, hanging around with celebrities, big parties, all that stuff and I remember six months before this happened. Very fast. I was sleeping in the back seat of an abandoned Lincoln Continental with the pages of Think And Grow Rich taped to the ceiling with as much tape as I could afford with a flashlight reading them every single night until I fell asleep.
