Maverick NEXT – The NEXT Generation of Maverick Entrepreneurs
As we all know, being a Maverick requires a special kind of expertise and skill – something that develops out of a base of having the rare and natural Maverick DNA. The fresh launch of Maverick NEXT may be just the key to what is needed to prepare oneself for this task. Maverick NEXT is for entrepreneurs who are 25 years old and under who exhibit this DNA and have a strong desire to grow as an individual and as an entrepreneur. There is an annual membership fee of $3,300 – $300 of which goes into the NEXT IMPACT Fund. The requirement for joining is a six + figure yearly revenue, a desire for social impact and experience in raising capitol. Also, no egos allowed – one must be open to learning from and contributing to the network. Although the cut-off age to join is 25, there is a two year grace period if an entrepreneur joins at age 25 – by 27 they are encouraged to apply for Maverick 1000. During a NEXT membership, there is an evolution that takes place. They learn, they grow and they contribute until they are ready and qualified to move up to being a Maverick1000 member. Maverick NEXT differs from other young entrepreneurial groups in several ways, but its key difference is that there is a lot of attention put towards building an infrastructure that will help grow each member’s business.
The Maverick NEXT membership includes 2 yearly events: Underground and a Young Entrepreneur’s Summit (which will be taking place in Austin,TX. November 1-3, 2014). Members will also be given the opportunity to join an online Mastermind group, where they will be able to interact with each other as well as get input/advice from Maverick1000 members who will donate their time and jump on the calls. They will have access to Maverick1000 CEO Yanik Silver, along with all of his literature.
The Inspiration Behind Maverick NEXT?
We have all heard the term “Its lonely at the top.” Well, imagine being a young, successful entrepreneur at the age of 21. While your friends are piling into one car that will take them from frat party to beach bonfire shenanigan, you are staying in your dorm room, alone, returning emails, balancing your books and fulfilling orders. To be successful in this arena at such a young age requires a special and unique kind of focus; the ability to look above the heads of everyone that surrounds you and move towards a horizon that no one sees or understands but you. If you are “this person” you will find that it is even lonelier on the way up. If you believe in your vision and are confident in the future you envision for yourself, you will have to put a degree of separation between yourself and your high school/college friends – they will hold you back. You need like minded people and mentors who have already traveled and conquered parts of this mysterious journey we call “becoming a successful entrepreneur.” You will find yourself feeling torn between wanting to make lasting memories in your 20’s and being pulled to climb up that ladder. You will find yourself hanging out with people who are 10+ years older than you, just because they are the only ones who can relate and who will support you in your endeavors. If this describes you or a young entrepreneur you know, then becoming a member of Maverick NEXT just might be the answer you have been looking for. NEXT will connect young entrepreneurs with others who are all floating around in the same boat. Compared to other Young Entrepreneur accelerates and clubs, Maverick NEXT focuses on creating an environment for its members that encourages finding a balance between business and life happiness.
How Can Maverick1000 Members Get Involved?
If you are a member of Maverick1000 and can identify with what it feels like to be a young, up and coming star in the entrepreneurial world, then getting involved with Maverick NEXT is a great way for you to get connected. There are several ways for you to contribute: You can “host” or jump on a Maverick NEXT Round Table or Mastermind call, or you can take one of these young bucks (or bucktresses…I think that’s what you would call the female version of a buckaroo…?) at an event such as Undergound – you can show them the ropes of networking and just share in the experience of learning from other entrepreneurs. Future plans include a possible Maverick1000 “Big Brother/Big Sister” relationship with NEXT members as well as planning back to back Maverick1000 and Next trips (ie, scheduling the Young Entrepreneur’s Summit right after a Maverick 3X Multiplier trip to make it more convenient for Maverick 1000 members to participate). Maverick NEXT is open to all input as to how Maverick 1000 and Maverick NEXT can work together. If you have any ideas or input, or know of a young entrepreneur who would benefit from joining Maverick NEXT, contact Dmitriy Kozlov at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send potential applicants to MaverickNEXT.com where they can fill out an online application.
