Interview with Zak Mayhew-Yanez (@zakmayhew)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I did not limit myself to a conventional career, and explored different arenas, but what inspired me to be where I am right now is the hope to spread kindness and positivity in the world. Ive always wanted to make an impact, create a difference no matter how small, and that became my drive.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Whatever you do in life, nothing can be more important than your mental health. Everything else comes after that. So take a deep breath, and step back from whatever is causing your burnout until you can get energized again.
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’m very close to my family, who have always supported me in my decisions and of course, my fans who have been my motivation from Day 1, clapping for my success and always being super supportive.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
My aim in life is to spread positivity and kindness in a world that is too cruel. That was the inspiration behind my Youtube Channel, Life of Mayhem.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Some things cannot be taught, they can only be experienced”. I learned that the hard way, that you must conquer your fears to succeed in life. Some things need to be experienced, an life is a never ending learning experience for all of us.
