Yanik Silver, is a super entrepreneur, who bootstrapped 8 different businesses that have all hit the million dollar sales mark – all without taking on debt. He is an internet marketing guru who created the “Maverick Marketing Program” for entrepreneurs.
Yanik regularly networks with world-class entrepreneurs like Richard Branson, of Virgin Air and Zappos founder, Tony Hsieh. He believes life should be more than about making money. It should also be about family, fun and philanthropy!
Here are some incredible life lessons Yanik shared in his interview:
- Develop the power of visioning. This means looking into the future, describing it and picturing it as clearly as you can. Create a vision sheet. Write down your ultimate life wish list, i.e. what you want to be, do and have. Include the people you want to meet and places you want to go!
- Develop a big idea for your business that is exciting and scary. Then start writing down small ideas to get to your big idea.
- There might be others doing what you want to do, but don’t worry. Just think about ways you can differentiate and stand out from your competition.
- Don’t get stuck on trying to make your product perfect before you launch it. Get it started and out the door and constantly continue to improve it!
- Learn about crowdfunding and crowdsourcing. There are lots of people who may be willing to invest in your idea. Put your idea out there and start asking. You can never get a “YES” if you never ask!
- Make an impact. Impact determines income!
- Great marketing involves testing and trying! Keep testing and tweaking and checking to see what is working and what is not working! Once you discover what works, put your full energy into it.
- Develop affiliate relationships and grow a group of people who know you and like you. The internet allows us to create friends, fans and advocates. Make the most of it!
- Make sure your business has the three interlocking key perspectives: Make Money, Have Fun and Have a Heart to Make a Difference!
