  1. Hey Yanik,

    I saw your interview on Mixergy and just had to reach out.
    (I’m the guy whose friends wonder why I barely have any music and a ton of interviews on my Iphone.)

    I’ve started a few fairly successful ventures but I’m hungry to take it to the next level.

    Your approach to life really resonated. Especially how you recognize the need for true passion in business. The difference between your definition of “passion for business” and Andrew’s definition was really eye opening.

    I want the type of passion for business and life that you have. I find my self slipping towards the passion where you change your name for branding.

    I want to deliver excellence because I love what I’m doing and not because I know it’s the most effective method of selling and gaining / retaining customers.

    So (without further ado), I never thought I’d beg someone for access to their program… but, here we are.

    Is there any way that I could gain access to the information in Maverick Business Insider?

    If it’s possible, just let me know how much I owe you.

    Thanks for doing the interview,

    – Alex

  3. Mr. Yanik Slver,
    I bought a book from you a couple of years ago anf it was really great,but had no computer. So I used the library. But could do only so much, now i have have Internet acess and can not find it,but do have some notes from a old notebook.I am trying to hard to get some things established on the net in multiple ways which I believe God has led me to be set free. there is something im involved with called the Shopping Sherlock, and would like to get your opinion on it—please.Love your blogs and the way you help people!

  4. Hello,

    Am new to internet marketing business and I have been following you and blog post for a while. Pls kindly update me on how to stay focus and achieve success in internet business expecially info marketing, blogging and leads generation.

    Thank you.

    • Mike, I’d suggest grabbing ‘Moonlighting on the Internet’. I wrote it a few years ago but still an excellent primer.

  5. Hi Yanik,

    He who dare’s wins and I know there WILL be some way of connecting with you.

    I’m an ex children’s nurse and lecturer. I run a company called Ki Resolutions as a business coach and consultant. 10 % of the income I make goes to helping children around the world. I do this because it’s the way I now choose to give back. I’m also working on a book for Young Entrepreneurs as have a lot of experience working with young people, for the Prince’s Trust, and now the Canadian Youth Business Foundation and as a nurse all my research was on adolescents. I have a gift of making people excel. Happy for you to look me up on LinkedIn or my website if you want more information.

    I’m currently working on my research project for the Masters in Innovation, Creativity and Leadership, entitled Maverick Approaches to Business. I’m interested in exploring the why? what? and how? of people who ‘think differently’ in business. To learn from them about them. I’ve got a diverse array of participants from London, US, Canada, & Australia. From recent startups to companies bought up by Google. I would very much like to invite you to participate. This would mean completing an online questionnaire and VIEW assessment http://www.cpsb.com/assessments/view (September), and a Skype interview (October) as I’ve just moved to Vancouver from London.

    Also know you will know a lot of Mavericks and wondered if you will help me identify and connect with them.

    Create an awesome day Yanik.

    Billie

    • hi Billie,
      Thanks for the post. Very interested in the young entrepreneur book. Reach out to amy at maverickdna.com

  6. Hi Yanik,

    Just listened to the interview you did over at Entrepreneurs On FIre, and I wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all the insights you offered in it.

    I’m making the sometimes painful transition to full-time freelancing right now myself (copywriting and content marketing), with the ultimate aim of building a products-based business and toning down the freelancing.

    It’s cool to follow someone who’s farther along than you are and to learn from them, and I definitely plan to pick up Moonlighting on the Internet asap.

    Keep up the great work. Looking forward to your upcoming stuff!

    -Corey

  7. HI Yanik,

    You don’t need a lifetime to achieve your goal.
    (solving 100 of the world’s most impactful issues).
    We already have the resources to accomplish your goal
    in ten years. We have 300 million problem solvers now
    who are linked. They need to be aligned and linked and
    focused on a humongous goal. We went to the moon in
    ten years with fewer resources. We can definitely do
    this, while creating the same number of young entrepreneurs. Let’s begin.

  8. Yanik: I really like the Maverick DNA Core Values. I was smiling and then laughing at the end. I remember when you started out with the likes of Corey, Joel, Frank, the guy in Canada (I can see him in my mind), and many more. Congratulations on your continued success and branching out with such terrific results.

  9. hello yanik i was giving your bok on sales by some mentor in nigeria Sunny ojegbase, akn alabi.and you are so inspiring i am more a believer of the more profits more fun more impact

  10. Hello Yanik, I read about your work on Jack Canfield’s book: “The Success Principles”. I am very interested in joining the Instant Internet Profit line of business. Is there a service I can offer in order to make payments for all the charges required before I can have access to business opportunities at your website? I know that you already have a virtual assistant, but I believe that I might be able to assist you in some way and contribute to your business.

    Thank you so very much for your consideration in this regard.

    Sincerely,

    Wangeci Warui
