Speak boldly and with intellect. Never hush your voice for someones comfort. Speak your mind. Make people uncomfortable.

What the eff even are archetypes?!

Archetypes were first introduced by famous psychologist Carl Jung way back in the 1940’s.

If you wanna’ know more about the Jung’s theory, you can read my post over here, or you could just Google it. There are about a gajillion and one articles out there that talk about them.

So instead of trying to summarize his life’s work, this page is my version of how you can apply these babies to your business + life.

Online Entrepreneurs

I love me some Mavericks. I’m always drawn to them. I think it’s because they aren’t scared to say all the things I want to say. But I’m workin’ on that.

I think sometimes they get a bad rap, but they’re mostly just misunderstood. Luckily, they don’t care.

And in the spirit of breaking all the rules, I’m giving you my TWO favorites instead of just one.

Ash Ambirge // The Middle Finger Project

Oh how I want to be best friends with Ash. #girlcrushinghard

I mean, her whole business revolves around giving people the middle finger. To say I connect with her messaging deeply would be the understatement of the century.

She also has some effing amazing products for sale. I’ve bought pretty much everything she sells and you should, too.

Mark Manson // Doesn’t Give a F*CK

Oh how I want to be best friends with Mark, too. #boycrushinghard

His book is called “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*uck” and it’s freaking amazing.

I read it in like, 2 days. Then I read it again immediately. And I’m subscribed to his articles. I’d subscribe twice if that meant anything.

Fictional Characters

Did you know that the archetypes all have a “shadow side” too? That’s why I’m showin’ ya the GOOD and the BAD side, so make sure to hover over the imagesto learn how each character fits the Maverick Archetype.

THE GOOD Side

Mulan

Mavericks don’t just break rules for the hell of it. They’re agents of change. And Mulan is no exception. She isn’t afraid to do whatever it takes to protect her family. Even pretending she’s a dude.

THE BAD Side

Sid Phillips

I’m all for kids being a little rebellious and pushing boundaries. But Sid catapulted over “the line” into out-of-freaking-control territory. He’s sadistic, destructive, and generally just a dick.

THE GOOD Side

Jessica Jones

I’m totally in love with Jessica and her shitty attitude. She does whatever she wants. She never does anything she doesn’t wanna’ do. But she’s still cares deeply about her friends. Plus she wears a bitchin’ leather jacket.

THE only-kinda BAD Side

Elektra Natchios

Yeah, sometimes Elektra is bad. But sometimes she’s not. She pretty much just does whatever she feels like doing and she doesn’t really care what anyone thinks about it. She’s a badass.

THE GOOD Side

Sirius Black

Sirius ain’t afraid to break aaallll the rules. He’s was a rebel from the beginning when he was sorted into Gryffindor instead of Slytherin. Then, he busted outta’ Azkaban to expose Ron’s rat for the murderous traitor he was. RIP, bro.

THE BAD Side

Lucius Malfoy

The “shadow side” of the Maverick would includes descriptors like destructive, dark or bad, out of control, and illegal. I don’t think anyone would argue that Lucius fits the bill.

THE GOOD Side

Jaime Lannister

Sure, he’s got his flaws (like bangin’ his sister, among other things). And killing his boss didn’t do much for his popularity – even though he was crazy and probably deserved it – it sure as heck started a revolution.

THE BAD Side

Ramsay Bolton

He might be one of the most evil characters that has ever existed. He murders his whole family, cuts off Theon’s favorite appendage, and “takes advantage” of Sansa. Fortunately, she feeds him to some hungry dogs.

My favorite part… Music! 

My favorite part… Music!  

Rock n roll, baby

World on Fire // Slash & Myles Kennedy

Myles said it’s about “living your life with no regrets. Doing what you want – doing whatever makes you happy.” Sooo…sex, drugs, and rock n roll, obviously.

Country

Family Tradition // Hank Williams Jr.

Hank Williams Jr. ain’t gonna’ be held to the same standards as his daddy. He makes his own rules. He’s gonna’ drank, roll smoke, and live out all the songs he wrote.

Pop

BITCH // Meredith Brooks

My middle school anthem right here, y’all. Who said all girls had to be innocent and sweet, anyway? Screw that noise. “I’m a little bit of everything all rolled into one.” Boom.

My favorite Maverick song

30/30-150 // Stone Sour

If you don’t know me yet, you should know I’m a bit of a music snob. And I’m really proud of it.

Sure, I can appreciate the occasional pop-y song for fun, but my heart lies with the true musicians who write and play their own music.

So it’s only fitting that this is my favorite song for the Maverick Brand Archetype.

Talk about sparking a revolution.
I tried to tell you but you simply obeyed  •  They didn’t listen so they threw you away
Now all you do is talk  •  I don’t wanna hear your bullshit  •  Is this what you want?
