Where You Might Have Seen Yanik Silver and Maverick Business Adventures®
Virgin Galactic Passenger #144
There’s no doubt – we’ve come to a significant moment…
What’s worked before is no longer an option. It’s time for Maverick entrepreneurs, visionary creators, change makers, and impactful leaders to rewrite the rules of business for the 21st century. In fact, I predict that businesses without a core impact will be at a competitive disadvantage in four to seven years (or less).
A GRT recommended I speak at a Maverick event his buddy was organizing ... What got me though is that this group of super smart business types would also be helping the Green Beret Foundation execute a new program designed to make it easier for GB’s to find work in the civilian world..."

"Yanik Silver, a serial entrepreneur by nature, couldn't help but turn his hobbies into yet another business - one that combines his thrill-seeking nature and his passion for work into a concept that is irresistible to his contemporaries....."
"Yanik Silver was getting nervous, which was making him angry. He'd come all the way to Iceland from his Potomac, Maryland home to scuba dive the Silfra Ravine, a rocky crevasse about sixty feet deep but often narrower than a two-lane road. About two hours east of Reykjavik by car, the ravine is a place where the American and Eurasian continental plates meet — you can literally swim from one continent to the next — and Silver had dreamed of diving it for years. The sky-blue water was so clean you could drink it, so clear you could see through it for 100 yards...."
"I didn't really want to strip to my underwear on a street in broad daylight and sing Bob Seger's Old Time Rock and Roll a lá Tom Cruise in Risky Business. But when I agreed to come on this trip for a very unusual entrepreneur's adventure, I told myself that I'd play along. And this, apparently, was part of the drill...."
"On Sunday, the Image staff showed you how to wear pink on your fingers, feet and sleeves to support breast cancer awareness, but why stop there? In honor of October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 20 business executives met at the Marina del Rey Ritz Carlton on Sept. 30 and let John Paul Mitchell hairstyling students turn their manes the month's signature shade. Part of an event for the Maverick Business Adventures group -- whose membership consists only people who run a $1-million-plus company -- the entrepreneurs also gave $7,000 to Fran Drescher's Cancer Shmancer and $8,000 to the Variety Boys & Girls Club in the Boyle Heights area of East L.A. Not ones to run and hide their new coifs, the Mavericks then let their pride flags fly some more as they drove exotic cars up to Napa on a road rally...."

An established Internet marketing expert, he's been in business online since 1998 and has numerous Internet products to his name. He is a self-made millionaire and is recognized as one of the leading experts on web marketing, but considers himself a "techno dunce" because he still doesn't know how to put up his own web pages. With help only from his wife, he has grown his businesses from an initial investment of $1,800 to over $13 million in sales. ..."
"...The millionaires are on a zero-gravity flight high above the Nevada desert, but they could just as easily be off-road racing in Baja California, Mexico, or rock climbing in the Rockies as part of a Maverick Business Adventures (MBA) outing. MBA is the brainchild of Internet-marketing whiz kid Yanik Silver, who contends that adventure and business networking are compatible bedfellows..."
