Welcome to the Besomebody Podcast, hosted by Besomebody, Inc. and BSB Group International Founder and CEO, Kash Shaikh. After a successful corporate career and a fast-start to his entrepreneurial journey, Kash was knocked down, kicked to the curb, and counted out after his initial product failed to get traction. He pivoted, kept going, and built Besomebody into a multi-million dollar company. Today, he's passionate about helping you do the same.
 
On this show, we will focus on three key areas of business and community building: entrepreneurship, leadership, and culture. And we'll center our discussions and dialogue on the key stories, insights, and actions that will help you bring your vision to life.
 
Subscribe if you: 1) Own or aspire to own a small business. 2) Work for, founded, or are thinking of creating an early-stage startup. 3) Are experiencing growth at your startup and looking to get to the next level. 4) Lead a team of people and want to keep pushing them to be great. 5) Are passionate about your work or community and want to make the most positive impact. 6) Feel like a caged lion and want to set yourself free.
 
Kash is an award-winning entrepreneur, brand builder, and public speaker who successfully transitioned - after lots of ups and downs - from a fast-tracked corporate career to a game-changing force in entrepreneurship. Besomebody began as his personal blog, and today - after several evolutions, failures, and pivots - is a multi-million dollar company. He then created BSB Group International, a leading growth agency that works with Fortune 500 companies and fast-growing startups across the world to help them grow their revenue, profit, and/or customer base.
 
Besomebody, and now BSB Group International, have been named one of the "Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America" by Entrepreneur Magazine, "Top Companies for Diversity and Inclusion" by Break the Ceiling, and one of the "Best Places to Work" by the Business Courier. Kash has received many awards and accolades, including AdWeek "Marketer of the Year", Google's "Rising Star for Entrepreneurship", and several 40 under 40 recognitions. He's a 3x TEDx speaker and has spoken at over 200 schools and corporations around the world.

    Episode 20 (Part 2 of 2): From Board Shorts to Billions: Justin Wilkenfeld, CEO of Kindhumans and Employee #4 at GoPro Shares the Secrets to Building A Billion-Dollar Company the Hard Way

    In 2007, Justin Wilkenfeld left a stable corporate job in the Finance industry to help his college buddy sell wrist-strap cameras to surfers. Seven years later, he was a core part of the most successful US-based IPO of the year as GoPro reached legendary "unicorn" status.  What started as answering phone calls in the one-man customer service department and building furniture for trade shows around the country, turned into negotiating brand partnerships, scaling marketing teams, and signing iconic athletes - always with a focus on building real relationships. And throughout it all, Hoost was the glue that helped build and protect GoPro’s unbeatable culture. Today, Justin - in partnership with his wife, Suzi - has combined his passion for growing businesses with his calling to build community to create Kindhumans, a new platform to connect commerce with compassionate causes across the globe.
