Who’s Camping With You?

Past Expert
"Camp Counselors"

Your 'Camp Counselors' are the experts and top business minds you'd normally see delivering keynotes at seminars – but not here.

You won't be sitting in boring presentations or spending countless hours in a generic meeting room. Instead, you'll actually be taking part in hands-on learning, workshops, and meaningful conversations throughout the 3 days together.

We haven't announced this year's counselors but last year's group was pretty epic (and many are coming back as paid attendees):

He believes that the key to creating a business and a life you love is to do less, not more. He'll show campers how to achieve unprecedented efficiency and growth by simplifying your business, stripping out what's unnecessary and focusing on what's really important.

Dan Martell is a walking testament to the fact that anyone can turn things around with enough determination.

Dan got off to a rough start in life. By age 17, he had been in jail twice for drug-related charges. While in a rehab center at age 18, Dan discovered computers and became fascinated by technology.

He developed a passion for entrepreneurship, and jumped into it with no formal business training. After a few early failures, Dan has successfully built and sold 3 companies (so far).

First he founded Spheric, Inc, which grew an average of 152% per year until he sold it in 2008. Next he co-founded Flowtown, a social media marketing platform that grew to over 50,000 small business customers before being acquired in 2011.

Then Dan founded, which helped entrepreneurs and business owners get advice from top business minds over the phone. The company raised $1.6M in funding and was growing about 30% each month until Dan sold it in 2015.

Aside from launching his own businesses, Dan has also been a very active angel investor. Dan invests in startups whose opportunities and ideas he can get excited about. He's made dozens of investments, including GetAround, Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce, Manpacks and many more. In fact, in 2012 he was named Canada's top angel investor.

Dan says he never invests for pure financial reasons... he looks to do business with great people who share his values & work ethic. Dan is also heavily involved in many charitable organizations, such as Clarity: Water,, and Portage.

At Camp Maverick, he'll share his hard-won knowledge on growing fast and metric-driven marketing.

Stories connect with people on an emotional level. They make you seem real, authentic and relatable... but only if it's done well... And when it comes to storytelling, Patrick Combs is a master.

Patrick wrote, directed and starred in a comedic one-man show that has wowed audiences and critics on more than 400 stages around the globe, from New York to London. For it, HBO named Patrick the funniest new performer in America.

He's also been invited to speak at companies like Google, Hilton, Visa, Shell, Boeing, Motorola, and many others on topics as diverse as entrepreneurship, creativity, customer service, innovation, and accomplishing the impossible.

Patrick can help you learn to inspire, engage and motivate your customers to a whole ‘nother level. And that's very good for business.

If you want to learn how to use the power of story to really engage an audience and make the message stick, you'll want to meet Patrick at camp.

Renée started doing marketing and entrepreneurship as a 17-year-old running a restaurant, so she's been an entrepreneur since before she could even vote.

Now, she runs an innovative marketing firm called Onboardly, where she uses a strategy she calls Demand Marketing to help clients:

  • Establish themselves as thought-leaders within their industry.
  • Earn recognition for their ideas.
  • Create authority and connect with their audience.
  • Increase visibility & top-of-mind brand awareness.
  • Capture the attention of media, influencers and prospective partners.
  • Build trust and capture attention through creative content... and more.

Basically, she helps fast-growth companies gain authority, visibility and brand awareness... and she's been successful enough at it to be recognized as the 2016 Phenomenal Woman of the Year!

Renée's tactics are so effective, she once landed a client on the Steve Harvey show just for telling his rags-to-riches story.
One of her clients got so much traffic from a single blog post that it created $500k in sales in 48 hours!

Renée has tons of winning brand-building and authority-generating strategies to share that have made her the secret weapon for high-tech companies.

If you're struggling to create an awesome, high-performance culture in your business, John Ratliff is the guy to see about that. In fact, this is the guy Verne Harnish, best-selling author of Scaling Up, goes to for strategy.

John's focus on creating a great work environment that maximized employee morale, engagement and retention is exactly what made Appletree Answers a huge success.

In 1995, John founded Appletree Answers in his two-bedroom apartment as a traditional telephone answering service. Over time, he transformed it into a high-end customer service contact center that used everything from phone, email and chat response.

John reduced turnover at the company from the industry average of 110% to around 18% in just four years by creating a totally unique culture.

That high retention rate allowed the company to grow exponentially without falling prey to disorder and chaos.

By the time he sold it (for well above industry multiples), he had expanded the company to have 24 locations and 650 employees.

These days, John helps companies improve their employee retention and morale, maximize employee engagement and drive higher performance.

James Altucher is one of those guys who seems to have experienced 5 lifetimes.

James got his start working at HBO in the IT department - and ended up hosting a TV show for them.

In 1996, he founded a web-design firm called Reset Inc., and managed to land big-name clients like Wu Tang Clan, American Express, Con Edison, Time Warner, and BMG. He sold Reset Inc. for $10 million just 2 years later.

After using the proceeds to invest in tech stocks during the dotcom boom, he lost everything he had in just two years. That led him to seriously re-evaluate his approach to both business and life.

Then Jim Cramer of hired him to write about stocks. Altucher also started a hedge fund, which he managed until closing it down shortly before the financial crisis.

He founded an investing website called Stockpickr, which he sold for $10 million in 2007.

All in all, James has started and run more than 20 companies and is currently invested in over 30.

He's also an incredibly prolific author, having written 17 books.

Two have been WSJ best-sellers: 'The Power of No' and 'Choose Yourself'. USA Today also named 'Choose Yourself' among the 12 Best Business Books of All Time. And his book 'I Was Blind But Now I See' reached No. 1 in's motivational books section.

James currently hosts a super successful podcast called "The James Altucher Show" with guests of the caliber of Tony Robbins, Mark Cuban, Peter Thiel, and Tim Ferriss, to name just a few.

He's also the editor of a newsletter called "The James Altucher Report" where he talks about big trends in business, investing, and success in general.

Sheryl Netzky is a Shamanic Energy Practitioner & Golden Mind(SM) Meditation Teacher. She helps business leaders from around the globe spiritually and professionally transform their relationship ecology. Her clear seeing supports clients in releasing perceived obstacles, connecting to purpose and amplifying abundance.

Walking with more than 30 years of meditation, yoga and advanced shamanic practices, Sheryl offers spiritual tools to increase clarity and deepen relationships. In essence, she helps her clients align with purpose and reshape their lives and companies as they'd like them to be.

Sheryl is what's known as a "trained tracker". Similar to how a jaguar tracks a scent through the jungle, Sheryl tracks the energetics underneath her clients' stories, to support their most optimized intentions in manifesting.

As one entrepreneur expressed, "When I was looking to increase my personal growth and spiritual practice, I found my work with Sheryl not only massively improved those areas, but positivity overflowed into all other areas of my life. My friendships improved, my ability to experience healthy romantic partnership increased, and the daily operations of running my company became easier.”

As another entrepreneur shared, “I am not sure exactly how this works, but I am not the same person as I was 2 weeks ago, prior to our last session, and in a good way. I’ve fallen back in love with my business, rebuilt my team, stopped numbing through alcohol and actually have the support in place for the abundance I’m creating.”

Sheryl is the founder of Good Energy LLC and the Golden Mind(SM) Meditation technique. She’s also an award-winning literacy consultant and former senior faculty member for The Four Winds Society's Healing the Light Body School, wherein she trained and mentored over 1,000 global shamanic energy medicine practitioners. In the past year, she's been honored to support CEO's, their families and teams with over 500 shamanic sessions.

Her vision is to support passionate entrepreneurs in aligning with their soul's purpose such that every product and service created, is attuned to a spiritual center, and hence, a more purpose-driven, conscious culture evolves.

If you're curious about deepening stillness, removing blocks between you and what you want, and sharing your unique gifts more visibly, connect with Sheryl at camp.

100 Tickets Available

In order to create a truly remarkable experience, Camp Maverick will be significantly more intimate than any of the previously sold-out Underground® events. Instead of 400-500 attendees like we would normally have, we’re paring the numbers down to just 175 campers in total.

  • 4) Early Camp Maverick priority notification list
  • 5) Invited partners and guests
