Yanik’s Bio:

“Yanik Silver is a serial entrepreneur although he still considers himself a ‘techno dunce’. Starting from his one-bedroom apartment and with just a few hundred dollars, Yanik has built multiple 7-figure businesses.

He is the author, co-author or publisher of several best-selling marketing books and tools including Moonlighting on the Internet, Instant Sales Letters® & 34 Rules for Maverick Entrepreneurs. Yanik is a highly sought after speaker addressing groups ranging from the prestigious Wharton Business School to international audiences of 3,000+.

As a self-described “adventure junkie”, Yanik has found that his own life-changing experiences such as running with the bulls, bungee jumping, sky diving, exotic car road rallies and Zero-Gravity flights have not only brought a profound sense of accomplishment but also led to breakthroughs in ideas, focus and business thinking. That’s why he combined both his passions to found Maverick Business Adventures creating the kind of “club” he’d want to be part of. In between adventures, he calls Potomac, Maryland home with his wife, Missy, and 2 mavericks in the making, Zak & Zoe.

Currently his most important mission is impacting 1,000,000 young entrepreneurs (ages 13-23) to start or grow their business by 2020 and to get his 2½ year old daughter, Zoe, potty trained.”
