Yanik Silver started from his one-bedroom apartment with just a few hundred dollars, and has now built multiple 7-figure businesses. Yanik describes himself as an “adventure junkie”, with experiences such as running with the bulls, bungee jumping, sky diving, exotic car road rallies and Zero-Gravity flights, which in part 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.

His lifetime goal is to connect visionary leaders and game changers to catalyze business models and new ideas for solving 100 of the world’s most impactful issues by the year 2100.
A best-selling author and co-author of several books and tools, including Moonlighting on the Internet, Instant Sales Letters® & 34 Rules for Maverick Entrepreneurs, Yanik has been featured in WIRED,, USA Today,, MSN Money, Entrepreneur, Fox Business News, and the Wall Street Journal among others.
