“To me, journaling has always been one of those success foundational principles, especially for creators and entrepreneurs and leaders. I’d been writing and doodling in my journal for years, and hoped to one day publish it to inspire and motivate entrepreneurs to advance towards their goals.
The investment from Bliss Champions Investment Fund immediately gave me the accountability I needed to move the needle. Within a week of obtaining that funding, I already had a printer lined up to make my Cosmic Journal a reality.”
It wasn’t a huge investment, but it was an investment. And it’s someone else’s money so you get that confidence from someone else. You also get the fiduciary responsibility.
Before Bliss Champions, Yanik Silver was already a maverick in his own right. As the founder and CEO of Maverick1000, an invitation-only, global network of exceptional entrepreneurs, he’d spent the last 14 years giving members the push and support they needed to accomplish what really matters.
His goals were lofty. He was laser-focused on connecting business leaders and game-changers to create innovative business models and new ideas. Yet, with all of his accomplishments, there was still something holding him back from pursuing his own Bliss.
Yanik has long been a proponent of journaling to express his ideas, dreams and ambitions on paper. He saw journaling as “one of those success foundational principles, especially for creators and entrepreneurs and leaders.”
As he continued to journal, he regularly went back to past entries to reread important messages he had written. As this habit continued to develop, he realized his journal was no longer just a place to capture his thoughts and ideas; it had transformed into an oracle that pointed him forward.
At Bliss Champions, our mission is to help bring secret and unrealized ambitions to life. During a conversation with Eric over breakfast, Yanik passionately shared his vision for his cosmic journal—and how he hoped to one day publish it for others. He saw its potential to inspire and motivate entrepreneurs to move towards their goals.
Immediately, we recognized this vision was Yanik’s Bliss journey, and we needed to help bring it to life.
Yanik was already successful in business and in helping others reach their vision. However, he needed a push to thrust his own vision forward. So Bliss Champions Investment Fund jumped in. Our investment immediately gave Yanik the accountability he needed to move the needle and drive the dream of publishing his journal. Within 72 hours of obtaining his funding, we received a photo of Yanik’s doodles spread across his kitchen table. Within a week, he already had a printer lined up to make his Cosmic Journal a reality.
He told us our investment was the key piece that had been missing from the puzzle. As Yanik puts it:
The funding was a massive nod in the right direction to continue doing something that Yanik loved. Finally, his dream was coming to fruition.
Within a year of our first breakfast meeting, Yanik is still challenging entrepreneurs to realize their potential and use their voice to transform the world. But now his vision has expanded even more.
Bliss Champions helped Yanik dig deep and upgrade his purpose of “catalyzing the catalysts in order to nudge the consciousness of the world”. He wanted to turn his journal into a multifaceted vision that embraced a playful element that he wasn’t incorporating in as much before.
According to Yanik, “That [the playful element] can become an overlay of what I do and who I help and serve. And you know, I’m sure there’s going to be programming that we do around entrepreneurs with this vision piece that I can get in and help them with.” Yanik’s Cosmic Journal had an initial print run of 888 special edition copies. Additionally, the transformational book publisher, Hay House, reached out to create an oracle card deck to accompany his journal.
