AF346: The Evolved Enterprise with Yanik Silver
The Evolved Enterprise with Yanik Silver
Today’s guest Yanik Silver redefines how businesses is played in the 21st century as the intersection of more profits, more fun and more impact.
Starting with his first million-dollar idea at 3 o’clock in the morning, he has bootstrapped 7 other products and services to the 7-figure mark from scratch without funding, taking on debt or even having a real business plan.
Yanik’s story and businesses have been featured in WIRED, TIME.com, USA Today, SmartMoney.com, MSN Money, Entrepreneur, Fox Business News, WORTH.com and the Wall Street Journal among others.
He is the author of several best-selling marketing books and tools including “Maverick Startup,” Instant Sales Letters® & “34 Rules for Maverick Entrepreneurs”. Yanik is the host of the annual Underground Online Seminar®, a noted “Top-10 Event for Entrepreneurs” by Forbes.
His latest venture is Maverick1000, a private, invitation-only global network of the top entrepreneurs and industry transformers. This group periodically assembles for breakthrough retreats, rejuvenating experiences and ‘giving forward’ opportunities (to-date raising over $1MM+) with participating icons such as Sir Richard Branson, Tony Hawk, Chris Blackwell, John Paul DeJoria, Tony Hsieh CEO of Zappos.com, Russell Simmons and Tim Ferriss.
The Evolved Enterprise
The evolved enterprise is what Yanik believes is the evolution from the way old businesses became successful to the methods new businesses must adapt if they are to become wildly successful in modern times.
While I say Yanik believes, it’s not like it’s a theory. It’s a study and focused observation that Yanik has carried out over the past five to ten years. Its discoveries and learnings that have been made through his mastermind group, through his own research and discussions with those that are carrying on evolved enterprises.
I really want you to listen to the interview to hear Yanik and I discuss the “evolved enterprise” so I will only provide you the gist in this summary.
Essentially the evolved enterprise is about making sure your business has a positive impact on multiple levels of society. It needs to have positive impact through your products and services of course but it must extend beyond that to causes, community, internal culture, your people and of course on yourself.
It’s much more than that though, so please listen to this interview in full. It holds the keys to take you to stardom success following the simple formula, that will not only cause you to make obscene amounts of money but feel great about yourself for doing it 🙂
