Interview with Pylyp Matiukhin from Yes Man Enterprises

Published

on

I had the pleasure of interviewing Pylyp Matiukhin, CEO of  Yes Man Enterprises – American multinational technology company with headquarters in Miami, Florida. Pylyp’s company develops and manages a massive portfolio of digital assets including mobile apps, cryptocurrencies, adult content & social networks. Founded at 2016, Yes Man Enterprises launched over 800 startups in the blockchain, real estate, entertainment & adult industries many of which were acquired by large corporations and individual investors.

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Thank you for having me. My career path began in 2006 when I launched the biggest fashion-oriented social networking website in Eastern Europe while still studying at the university. It was a pre-Facebook era in the region and network had a viral success allowing fashionistas to connect online. At its peak network had over 200,000 active users. We also had curated original content and landed massive advertisement deals unseen for the local digital space in those years. Later I briefly moved into political consulting and promotions while starting to build and sell digital companies in the entertainment niche. In 2013 I started my research into the blockchain technologies and the possibility to integrate them into mobile apps and websites. Throughout the years I have worked closely as a co-founder and advisor with businesses of various sizes and in diverse industries, including crypto, banking, social media, adult & entertainment.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your company?

I’ve been starting various companies since the age 18, and the only particular feeling that never gets old – not having a boss and being in charge of everything. Interesting stories created every day when you have full control in your hands.

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

I don’t really regret anything, but I can say that my biggest mistake is the fear to say “no” to the clients you never wanted to work with and to the partnerships that were doomed to fail. Learn to say definite “Yes’ and “No” and you will save a lot of time and avoid unnecessary stress.

What do you think makes your company stand out? Can you share a story?

We own multiple proprietary technological solutions that allow us to develop & launch ready-to-use digital products within days. This helps our portfolio of assets integrate technology trends much faster than competitors and extract revenue out of fast-changing digital landscape more efficiently for us and our investors.

Usually, when you look for the company to do the business with, you choose between the TOP 3 – “most innovative”, “strongest brand” and “cheapest solution”. We combine all 3.

Even after building over 800 digital companies we are always trying to improve and learn new overlooked technologies and niches.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Acknowledge your weak sides and avoid doing them. Delegate these tasks to your employees or contractors. Maximize the use of your strongest skills. Take a break if needed. Only do what you love and never chase that hot industry you have zero knowledge about.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

I am the type of person that can be fueled by criticism.  Without naming any names the best teachers in my career were haters and people that say you can’t do stuff. People might tell you that your business will never succeed or that you will never accomplish your goals. You should use negative noise as a motivation to succeed. You do not need to prove anything to anybody. You might receive deeply personal insults that attack your beliefs, goals or character. That said, you do not have to conform to anybody else’s tastes. Instead, you should be proud of what makes you special. I prefer to use criticism as a validation that I have been doing the right types of things.

Beyond that, I would like to thank my friends and family for continuous support in my journey.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

Besides my numerous contributions to environmental charity organizations, I think the best goodness to the world that Internet entrepreneur can do nowadays is to educate people for free using the power of numerous digital platforms. At the beginning of my path, I learned many technologies simply by accessing public educational videos and articles. Now I feel it’s my turn to give back.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Confucius.

Very powerful for the people stuck at the career crossroads. This is pretty much how I live every day. If you do what you love it’s easy to get up in the morning and feel pumped. It’s hard to go to the bed because you still have so many ideas to accomplish.

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me before I started my company” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

1) Pick your business partners very carefully


When you start a new company, make sure the people on your team are of high integrity and you know their strengths and weaknesses. A great business is built on great people. Perfect scenario, you do completely different tasks and have 100% trust.

2) Overdeliver on your promises

Don’t focus on only selling and making money. Focus on providing value. Customers love exclusive perks and feel special when you exceed their expectations.

3) Work hard & don’t forget to have fun


Being 100% serious works, being 90% serious + 10% fun works better. For most founders, your business is your life. So why not enjoy the process as much as you can? At my company Yes Man Enterprises, we believe that having some fun can make everything better. Proven to work. Period.

4) Keep an eye on your competitors

Understanding what is going on outside of your company is an important part of success. As with many other areas of business, knowledge is power.

5) Fail fast

Prove the concept to work before going all in. Do not invest too much and money into the business before you see the first results. If you’re bleeding cash, move on. It is very similar to the stock market, better take a fast loss than become a bagholder.

You are a person of great influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂

Throughout the years of working in digital space, I have unique insight into the complexity and power of government and corporation influence on technology, civil liberties, and privacy. This urgent matter in our modern society needs a closer attention and involvement from technology influencers. In my books and public speeches, I push my audience to educate themselves and defend our rights on digital platforms and to take responsibility for the future of the Internet.

How can our readers follow you on social media?

Absolutely, I will be happy to connect with new people. I always try to respond ASAP.

I am active on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/yesmanpylyp/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/yesmanpylyp/  )

This was very inspiring. Thank you so much for joining us!

Fear is familiar with the unknown. For an entrepreneur, they understand the risk of business, and every single decision change life. Parmarth Mori has dealt with negative anxiety as an IT entrepreneur and gives some tips for eliminating worry as an entrepreneur.

Being an entrepreneur is appealing, but it can also be a difficult battle, especially when you are running the business. When new entrepreneurs are just beginning, they often fret that they are not going to make it in the business world. Well, it is a familiar feeling among entrepreneurs; some may not know how to overcome it. Here are ways to beat fear by Parmarth Mori.

Leading Entrepreneur of Gujarat Parmarth is the founder of the best website designing company in India PM Communications and Top App Development Company in India.

Identify the doubt

It starts with identifying fear once you realize it, you can eliminate it from your life.

Entrepreneurs need to discover what precisely is causing it. So when you are passing from such stage, just sit down and think about it and ask yourself what is causing these feelings.

Is it the fear of product failing, or is it the concern of not being able to keep up with other entrepreneurs? You have to find out the actual reason first so that you can overcome it.

Embrace Defeat

After finding out the reason of fear, the next thing you can do according to Next Gen IT Entrepreneur Parmarth Mori is to accept it. Let’s say, one of the most familiar fears that every entrepreneur has is fear of failing.

Many entrepreneurs in the start are afraid that they won’t make it like others. Well, this is not a line; it is a fact which is shared by many successful entrepreneurs with their business experience.

Take Risk

They are afraid that a product of theirs won’t appeal to people, and they will face a significant loss of time and money.

Well, Parmarth Mori believes that failure sometimes is beneficial than the direct success. Failure teaches you many things in life and makes you perfect in your field. Failure sometimes also improves you as a professional.

Fears can Guide you in your Entrepreneurial Journey

Fear is beneficial too, and when you have the right doubt means you are on the right path. It helps you improves more and more in your work, which makes you perfect in your field.

So if you are an entrepreneur, it’s a natural thing that you might get afraid. But letting fear take over can severely limit growth and who don’t allow fear take over can become a successful entrepreneur like Parmarth Mori.

Matthew J Phillips is Disrupting How Coaches are Normally Helped

Published

on

Best Coach who can help you earn in six figures:

We’ve all seen it, the hundreds of courses out there designed to take coaches and consultants to 6 figures in 30 days. The gurus charging 5k for 1-1 to help only to throw you a couple of finding your avatar worksheets. Isn’t it sad that the majority of support out there for struggling coaches, consultants and mentors sucks?

Matthew J Phillips under 20 Entrepreneur:

Matthew J Phillips a 19 years old entrepreneur from the United Kingdom has completely disrupted this. His educational company and Organic Clients Program has transformed the lives of hundreds of coaches for a fraction of the price of these low detail, overpriced courses, and guru mentorship programs.

Earning in big numbers:

As proof, from an investment of $300, coach Adam Smith made $7,000 in 5 days. From an investment of $1,000, Gilberto Morales made $11,000 in under 4 weeks. From an investment of $500, Devansh Sharma made $9,000. You don’t see these types of success stories anywhere else.

Matthew knows how to run programs and content on social media platforms:

We think it’s fair to say Matthew and his company have truly disrupted how coaches are helped. His programs and content across platforms like Facebook & Instagram simply work and it’s not just Adam, Gilberto and Devansh that have seen success. They’re just a few of hundreds.

Learn how to gain more leads:

We asked Matthew how you pick the right person to learn from if you’re looking to start fixing up your problems and get more leads and clients flowing through on a week-to-week basis. He said, your best bet is to not go searching for a big guru. The best help he’s ever had is from highly successful individuals that don’t have their face plastered on every youtube video, podcast and ad. Shop around in quality groups on Facebook.

Nice Human Being:

He also says to avoid anyone who’s only success stories go along the line of this “You should work with Jack, he’s a real nice guy”. Again, this is common amongst those that plaster their face on ads and are not in the slightest bit results-oriented with anyone other than themselves. Also, you want to make an ROI, someone saying that someone is a nice guy shouldn’t give you confidence that you’ll see that ROI. You want to see real success stories.

Last words:

Matthew’s fuel to help those in his industry, the right way, comes from individuals like one of his students who spent $40,000 on courses and gurus with not a client closed in return. After sitting down with Matthew, we believe he is disrupt approved.

Learn How Jess Crow Became The Successful WoodWorker She is Today

Published

on

 Jess Crow Is the founder of Crow Creek Designs, a woman-owned and operated woodworking shop located in Alaska. She is widely known as a leading authority in the artistic woodworking and epoxy industry.

 Crafting A Name For Herself

 Jess has not found it easy to get to the level she is currently at; Jess explains that she has made a name for herself by trying to be being an inspiration and sharing everything she’s learned so far. 

 By striving to be approachable and willing to accept advice from anyone; Jess feels that that has been an essential contributing factor to her growth, both personally and professionally.

 So far, Jess’s designs have caught the eyes of notable individuals like Team Gary Vaynerchuk in New York, LinkedIn, as well as Insider, DIY Network, and many more. She’s well on her way to becoming the most sought after woodworking epoxy artist in her field. Jess also is a highly sought after teacher for those wanting to learn how to grow their business despite facing challenging obstacles and learn how to “build more than furniture.”

 Overcoming Obstacles

 Obstacles are a part of everyday life, and so far, Jess has dealt with more than a handful of them. Some of the challenges she has had to deal with include criticism and rejection.In a lot of Social Media circles, the advice is often “stick with what other people are doing,” and that is how you can succeed. Jess has found that standing out and being different than the crowd is the way to go.

 “It is a lot easier to conform to what is known than it is to break free and become what is will be known.” – Jess Crow

 Below Jess shares how she handled this obstacle;

 “To overcome not only these obstacles but any obstacles that are in my way, I run through all the problems I think I could happen. For me, I function better when I am not surprised. 

 

Some folks may see this as “worrying” whereas I feel it falls more in-line with pre-gaming and planning. If you can think about, the “no’s” you may get; you can fine-tune your approach based on that information.”

 Making A Difference 

In a field that’s dominated by men, Jess sometimes finds that her voice sometimes has to be louder to make an impact. Although this sounds daunting, Jess has taken it as a good thing. She shares that she’s learned so much from her male counterparts and that she feels her ability to accept the different ways men and women think has given her an edge. 

She listens to what everyone has to say, and if she deems it’s worth trying, she takes it and adds it to her knowledge bank to make something new or better.

 “Woodworking is an art unto itself, but when you add unexpected elements by way of color and objects, it is exhilarating.”- Jess.
