Make your impact
on the world without sacrificing fulfillment.
I’m Yuval Selik, and my mission is to help entrepreneurs achieve this balance through The 7 Hats.
What are “The 7 Hats”?
Entrepreneurs are the 1% crazy, the innovators, the dreamers, the doers, the believers. They ask more of themselves than the other 99% and what they crave most is to IMPACT the world and those around them.
As much as we strive to impact the world around us, at times, we’re unsure of how to find balance in the development of ourselves and our companies. That’s where “The 7 Hats” comes in. The 7 Hats represent the 7 critical areas of your life. Through The 7 Hats blog and podcast, we share ways to achieve and keep that delicate balance, so you’re able to work towards impact and success without sacrificing fulfillment in your life.

THE GOLDEN HAT
Hat number one is the self-love hat. You can’t give what you don’t have inside, so you will focus on the relationship you have with yourself when wearing this hat. Your role when paying attention to the first hat is “the soul.”
Also called the GOLDEN Hat because it's the only hat that, in my opinion, feeds you in ways required to show up for all the other hats. If you're not whole or don't have anything left in the tank to give on the inside, you won't have anything available to give to others.
Hat number two is the health and fitness hat. It would be best if you had the energy and focus on taking on the world, so you will focus on nutrition, exercise, and sleep when wearing this hat. Your role when paying attention to the second hat is ``the athlete.``
It’s not necessarily all about the number on the scale. Even if you’re fit, you should continuously improve your fitness and energy levels, and that’s the goal. It’s not about that six-pack. The aim is to improve your healthy lifestyle incrementally each day.
Hat number three is the relationship hat. Nothing attained is worth it unless you have a solid and loving support system to share it with, so when wearing this hat, you will focus on your closest relationships. Your role when paying attention to the third hat is ``the servant.``
Entrepreneurs are busy and can easily find themselves neglecting to keep up the relationships with their significant others, family, or friends. Running a business is so challenging, and you will need a loyal and supportive tribe by your side to achieve your dreams.
Hat number four is the career hat. Entrepreneurs are the 1% crazy who seek to change the world for the better, and as you follow your dreams, you will spend a significant amount of your time wearing this hat. Your role when paying attention to the fourth hat is ``the entrepreneur.``
We are a special breed for sure, and if you're starting, growing, or running a business, it's going to be one of your most vital hats as you navigate all the sub-hats you take on running a business, including the janitor hat!
Hat number five is your finances hat. Entrepreneurs are risk-takers and, therefore, must plan for emergencies. It’s critical to have the resources to get back up and fight another round. Your role when paying attention to the fifth hat is “the investor.”
The stats don't lie... 50% of companies fail within the first year, and 95% within the first five years. If you don't plan and save up for an emergency, you may fall hard if your business fails and you don't have some runway to figure it out before your next move. So you will need a plan.
Hat number six is your contribution hat and the hat you wear when helping others who are less fortunate have a better life. Your role when paying attention to the sixth hat is ``the Philanthropist.``
Contribution is strongly linked to fulfillment, and I hope that if you have the blessings, you will help others who can use some blessings of their own. Churchill stated, ``From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.`` And I believe that!
Hat number seven is the spirituality hat. You will embark on a journey and evolution as you learn and adopt the values and qualities it takes to become a spiritual entrepreneur. Your role when paying attention to the seventh hat is ``the seeker.``
Let's follow in the footsteps of some of the most successful entrepreneurs who have adopted many of the attributes taught in the spiritual books that we know and love, such as positive thinking, inner peace, optimism, humility, compassion, reciprocity, equality, kindness, sacrifice, discipline, honesty, authenticity, and so much more.
