Featured Perk: Maverick member #242 Bruce Parkman – The Macalan Group and MainNerve
For those of you who have not had the privilege to spend some time with our resident “tough guy turned wicked smart business owner” Bruce Parkman, I highly recommend that you grab hold of an opportunity to hang out with him! To refresh your memory about Bruce’s business expertise, check out his bio below:
Bruce Parkman founded The Macalan Group in 2012, after the divestment of his former company, NEK Advanced Securities Group, which was founded in 2002. With little business expertise, Mr. Parkman, a retired, disabled Special Forces Sergeant Major, started NEK on his mortgaged house and a $250,000 SBA loan and with the assistance of his partner grew the company into a 115M global company in 10 years that was recognized as the premier provider of Special Operations Forces (SOF), Intelligence and Cyber related training programs worldwide.
“After 21 years in the Army serving as a Special Forces Sergeant Major and participating as a soldier and civilian in four different combat operations, I’m familiar with challenge and living outside the comfort zone. Starting and building a company is definitely one of the hardest things I have done, it has been definitely also one of the most rewarding. The successes and lessons learned we had over the last 11 years at NEK has set the foundation for future success at The Macalan Group,” says CEO, Bruce Parkman.
Bruce is also the CEO of MainNerve. MainNerve is a leading provider of managed services, compliance as a service, cyber security services, training and incident response to the commercial, defense and government sectors. Leveraging years of experience in training, security and global asset protections, MainNerve specializes in network and information security services and technology innovations.
Bruce would like to offer a 25% discount on his cyber security and compliance offerings to any Maverick member. Please check out the pamphlet insert for more information on this perk and for details on how you redeem it.

17. Lukas Fisher, Maverick NEXT Member – Praenato Ventures
“Have you always wanted to create a Facebook Advertising campaign for your offer…but could never get it to work? Or had trouble with getting ads flagged? Or even just felt scared off after hearing about all the trouble people are having on the network?
Well, that’s because 99% of people who are advertising on Facebook don’t understand the key fundamentals to being successful on a network with over 1 billion people on it. And Facebook punishes the people who don’t understand…both financially, and by kicking them off the network entirely.
I’m opening up my coaching program for 7 clients. The price is $2k per month for 3 months, not including adspend. We will build your entire Facebook marketing strategy from the ground up…or help tweak and optimize what you currently have running so it can be ultra-effective, efficient, and completely compliant with Facebook’s Terms Of Service.
I’ve helped Yanik with several of his own campaigns, driving leads to high dollar offers. I’ve worked with over 50 companies in an advisor role, getting results from one client’s first 500 email subscribers in 1 week… to creating an entirely new 6 figure per month income stream for another client. One client filled his entire high level mastermind with 1 ad in 2 weeks.
Let’s have a conversation to see if this offer is right for your business. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set up a short 20 minute strategy call.
You must have the following criteria to qualify:
- The ability to spend on advertising. Typically, this means a $5k budget to start, with the immediate ability to scale converting offers.
- A converting offer. This can be through Adwords, JV and Affiliate traffic, email traffic, etc. But you must have an offer that converts in other channels. This isn’t for new, untested offers.
- Coach ability. Facebook is a growing, changing beast. That means that you can’t be set in a specific mode of operation if we’re going to succeed together. So bring your thinking cap and leave your marketing ego at the door.
- Long term goals. For Mavericks, this isn’t hard, but success in Facebook requires seeing the big picture and having a long term plan. I’ll be crafting your campaign to be profitable long term, and your goals should align with that.
