Maverick Business Adventures Offers Entrepreneurs and CEOs  The Chance to Play Hard, Network Together and Pay It Forward

Celebrity Business Icon Joe Sugarman – Direct Marketing Legend to JoinMaverick Business Adventures Ultimate Baja Experience This January 

POTOMAC, MD, November 19, 2009 – How to steer a steady course over a bumpy road takes on double meaning during a Jan. 26-31, 2010 Maverick Business Adventures® outing where participants will climb into custom-built Baja Challenge race cars for three terrain-chasing days over parts of the famous “Baja 1000” course interspersed with group sessions focused on navigating current business challenges. 

Insights from direct marketing guru Joe Sugarman will augment business building and networking meetings directed to the unique times and opportunities for entrepreneurs during a troubled world economy. 

Maverick’s “Ultimate Baja Experience” includes three days of wild off-road adventure driving starting outside of Loreto, Mexico and ending in Cabo San Lucas with highly seasoned Baja 1000 off-road driving champions. Participants will follow part of the famous Baja 1000 course along mountain roads, ocean-view vistas and untamed trails not accessible to most others. Along the way, time is spent sharing business ideas and case studies bringing personal breakthroughs and new opportunities. 

The trip fee of $12,995 per person includes all accommodations (single occupancy), meals, off-road race vehicle, professional guide, chase support crew, fuel, safety equipment, driver’s orientation and spare parts. 

Celebrity guest and business icon Joe Sugarman has been described as one of the greatest direct marketing legends alive. “He’s a true innovator having been the first to use toll-free numbers to sell electronics and the one credited for introducing the U.S. to cordless phones and calculators,” explains Maverick Business Adventures (MBA) founder Yanik Silver. “He then moved on to sell 20,000,000+ pairs of BluBlocker sunglasses and he’s still going strong.” Sugarman will be with the group for the entire Baja adventure offering one- on-one time and private access to a true marketing pioneer and giant. 

In Cabo the group will close out the adventure with a business session and an optional program for local young entrepreneurs. Members refer to the Young Entrepreneurs session as one of the highlights of their Maverick Business Adventures experience. 

Yanik Silver believes in “paying it forward” to inspire and financially support young entrepreneurs. “It is the creative thinker, the risk taker, the out-of-the-box dreamer, the young entrepreneur who will lead this world into the new economy and renewed age of prosperity,” says Silver. “One of my real passions is helping young people and turning on the lights for them to see a different direction in their life.” 

MBA is the first and thus far the only membership to gather successful, like-minded entrepreneurs and top achievers for adrenalin highs and case study networking. Part of the MBA mission is to also give back and help empower future entrepreneurs. MBA gives money and provides live and virtual educational products and programs for aspiring entrepreneurs sourced in communities where adventure trips are held. Five percent of gross revenues go to self-sustaining charities selected by the members. 

MBA founder Yanik Silver believes that getting outside the office and tackling new challenges provides the right fuel for innovative, breakthrough thinking. A self-described “adventure junkie,” maverick internet entrepreneur and self-made millionaire, Silver has found that his own life-changing experiences such as running with the bulls, bungee jumping and high altitude sky diving have brought a profound sense of accomplishment and led to clarity in ideas and focus. This inspired him to create Maverick Business Adventures® for like-minded entrepreneurs, CEOs and business owners.  

MBA member and manufacturer Mike Lally of PCB Group says that these trips take “work hard / play hard” to a whole new level.   

“What we found here is a group of like-minded individuals. We’re not all in the same business; we’re not doing the same things and that’s part of the beauty of it. But everybody is here to work hard and play hard, so you get a very intense group of men and women. You don’t get to meet someone like that in an evening or over a round of golf,” he says. 

Maverick Business Adventures® is structured to be an exclusive group and membership is by-application-only, limited to forward thinking business men and women with proven abilities and success. Silver stresses that the focus is not on corporate team building or motivational development. Instead, members will be invited to join all-inclusive adventure outings that encourage the type of high-level networking and powerful connections that can only occur outside of normal business settings. For details on the group and how to apply for membership you can go online to or call 240.744.0165.
