🎧 Harnessing the Transformative Impact of Storytelling in Sales


Today, I want to share with you an incredible journey of resilience, innovation, and the art of storytelling from my recent podcast episode. I had the pleasure of interviewing Akeem Shannon, the entrepreneur behind the consumer brand Flipstick, which has made waves through Shark Tank, the Today Show, and major retailers nationwide.

Akeem’s story is nothing short of inspirational. After losing his college scholarship, he faced numerous challenges but never lost sight of his entrepreneurial dreams. He became a top sales professional at two Fortune 500 companies. However, his leap into entrepreneurship with the founding of Flipstick truly showcased his tenacity and vision.

About Author

After losing his college scholarship, Akeem was forced to find work for $10 an hour at a local cell phone shop. However, he leveraged the sales skills he had learned there to become the top sales professional at not 1 but 2 Fortune 500 companies. After an accomplished sales career, Akeem chose to pursue his dream of entrepreneurship. He struggled initially but eventually scaled his company, Flipsitk, from a single mall kiosk to an Inc Magazine Top 50 Fastest Growing Consumer Brand. With the help of celebrities like Snoop Dogg, appearances on Shark Tank and The Today Show, and distribution in 3000 retailers, including Target, Best Buy, and AT&T, Akeem has now made customers out of 1 million consumers. Akeem’s stories have entertained and inspired on the stages of South By South West (SXSW), the Consumer Electronic Show (CES), Fast Company, Bank of America, the Smithsonian, and many more.
