Spinning silver into gold for small business owners and entrepreneurs, maverick entrepreneur and author Yanik Silver offers his take on collaboration in the new “Collaboration Economy: Eliminate the Competition by Creating Partnership Opportunities.”
Silver has successfully bootstrapped eight different product and service ideas, hitting the million-dollar sales mark from scratch without funding or taking on debt, and is the author of several best-selling entrepreneurial books and tools; he is the founder of Maverick1000, a private, invitation-only global network of top entrepreneurs and industry transformers. In “Collaboration Economy,” Ellis and Morrison collaborated with a variety of experts and also offer a series of expert interviews focused on future success as a small business owner.
“I don’t mind sharing ideas with other people. I think that’s the way we all grow, and if you’re trying to hide behind your fear of loss, it really hinders the process. I’m all about abundance and realizing that if you get together with other people and you’re collaborating with them, typically you’re going to end up being in a better position than if you stopped and only tried to do everything on your own,” Silver said. “For this to work, you have to be a little more open, a little more transparent, a little more giving.”
In particular, Silver discusses the value of co-creating, connecting and catalyzing, crowdfunding platforms, asking compelling questions, creating value, sharing ideas and even the power of doodling.
