Maxim Sapozhnikov Profile Information

  • TEAM WORK creates DREAM WORK.
⠀
First of all, don’t rely just on yourself in your business, like I did years ago - it’s totally wrong! 🙅🏻‍♂
⠀
At the beginning, my @fashiontomax team included only believers who agreed to help me for free (I couldn’t even provide budget). We united our powers, and worked together to gradually achieve our common goal. You have to know it’s started with you guys, and I’m endlessly thankful for your support.✈️
⠀
Step by step, I started involving experienced professionals, and the company’s development rushed up to the sky 🌌📈 We had more motivation, more ideas, and more income ever since.
⠀
By the way, when I was in #SiliconValley at Startup 500 meeting, those ‘Unicorns’ company holders claimed all as one, that usually important startup investments depend on whether there’s a good team, which has to consist of at least THREE partners. ⭐️
⠀
Who do you think these partners are?
Should I share more of what I learned from this heaven of investors?☁

  • How’s you Monday going? Fabulous so far? 🤣
⠀
Don’t cry, just think that some people prefer mondays to fridays, like millionaire @garyvee .Not sure what his life is like, but do you think he manages to push rest into his tight schedule? 🤔
⠀
For me, it’s very important not to work just because. I also have to enjoy life time to time. 🥳
⠀
Let’s vote: Monday or NO Monday? Tell me also why, I’m curious! 😉

  • What’s your weekend like? ⭐️
⠀
Honestly, I have lost the track of weekdays, because my work requires me to be online 24/7. On weekends though, I get less distracted, so it’s the perfect time to get back to what I’ve been leaving for later and think out the strategical questions.
⠀
What about your weekend? 👆🏻
⠀
Choose one from below:
🛌Lazy in bed
🏃🏻‍♂Active
🕺🏼Turn up
👯‍♂Get-together with friends
🖼Cultural enlightenment (cinema, exhibitions, theater)
🏜Nature get-away
⠀
Or maybe you have better options?
Share with me 😉

  • Travel 10 months a year and always be in a good shape and keep your sanity! 🗺
⠀
How do I manage it? 🙃
⠀
- I think the reason’s that I was born with itchy feet!
Although, being a Sagittarius might have something to do with it!? 🤺
⠀
🚀All Sagittariuses I’ve met along the way were intrepid travelers.
⠀
What do you think? While you’re leaving your comments, I’ll also have a think about the real reason! 🛣
⠀
Maybe one of your comments will get me thinking? 😉

  • Madrid - to go, or not to go🧐
⠀
DEFINITELY - YES✔ I had to try hard to sum up ALL in just 5🤚🏼
⠀
🔺Feel loved. The warm-hearted spirit of the city won’t let you feel lonely or bored here - the city never sleeps, not even naps.
🔺Get inspired. For a fresh gulp of inspiration - choose any art space, from classical @museoprado @museothyssen @museoreinasofia in the Golden Triangle to gorgeous garden in @museo_sorolla , or exhibition at @palaciodegaviria
🔺Get high. Not what you thought, guys😂 There’re plenty amazing terraces to enjoy the city views. Sharing some of my favorites: Jardin de Salvador Bachiller, The Roof, and Sabatini Terrace
🔺Eat creatively. My discovery this time was @restauranteojala . They have the real beach, you can’t miss it! 🏖
🔺Mix cultures. The strolls between areas Salamanca, Chueca, Chamberì and Malasaña will open up different traditions, lifestyles, and people
⠀
Did you start packing for Madrid yet?🇪🇸

  • Home away from home🏘
⠀
Traveling 10 months a year, I follow certain rules when choosing a place to stay.
⠀
👉🏼Feeling like a local. That’s why I choose places close to the city center, restaurants, shops, and life.
👉🏼I only trust booking.com for best deals and ratings. I go for 8,5 and up mark.
👉🏼Read the reviews. For sometimes photoshopped pictures of the hotel don’t reflect the real conditions.
👉🏼My best advisors are friends and TripAdvisor for the real pictures and reviews. Choose wisely - apartments are sometimes better than hotels.
👉🏼I can’t stay offline or rely on WiFi - the connection must be perfect.
👉🏼Relax is also a key to success. Choose a place with a SPA. But consider if the services are included, or cost x2 times more.
⠀
Do you prefer hotels or apartments? 🙂

  • Nothing is impossible, even the word says ‘I’m possible’💁🏻‍♂
⠀
✔Faced challenges - I won a car on university contest🚗
✔They told me it was risky - I moved to Italy and opened my own business📈
✔They told me I’m incompetent - I brought my @fashiontomax team to collaborations with the top fashion brands and magazines🕺🏼
⠀
You are the one who have to believe in yourself. Pick up your scratches and make them successful sketches. Be confident and kick those new heights!🧗🏻‍♂👊🏼
⠀
Are you confident in yourself?😉

  • Street art in Madrid🎨
⠀
This is why I love this city! Madrid is very supportive of street artists and has plenty of locations, like this one on Calle Embajadores, 37😎
⠀
Colorful street art is not just cool, but also capable to pull out problems like sustainability and reusing materials. Enough to create something beautiful (and huge), like this mixed chimp made only of trash and spray paint by @okudart and @b0rdalo_ii 🐒
⠀
Can you recommend me any fancy graffiti spots in other cities? I’ll come🤪

  • 📌 I founded @fashiontomax in 2013, and it’s insane how much we’ve developed since.
⠀
We’re fast and furious - sometimes we shoot and produce the final video in less than an hour! 🏁
⠀
🚀 Our superpower of being fast brings us more projects, more experience and expertise.
⠀
And isn’t speed the key to survive in this world today? 😉
⠀
🏆 By the way, @mispropiostips guessed the year right!

  • How to work with criticism? 👌
⠀
📝 I have long developed a simple algorithm for myself: accept criticism - draw conclusions - put into practice.
⠀
Another thing is that not all criticism can be constructive, and here it is very important to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff. 📌
⠀
💼 I consider the criticism that is constructive and important for me:
⠀
It comes from a person whose opinion I trust, or whose experience really gives the right to criticize other people. Mom is the best example: you can't imagine authoritative opinions! 🛣
⠀
🎭 It does not go against my principles and desires. At the beginning of my career, whether it was moving to Milan or creating @fashiontomax, I faced criticism at every turn, but I always listened to my heart and did what I felt! Do not forget that your desires and passion are the last resort.
⠀
And how do you react to criticism? 😉

  • Who are “Fashion to Max”? Part 1. 💫
⠀
🎬 I keep mentioning my team as a whole but haven't had time to give some extra info about who @fashiontomax are.
⠀
So, here are some interesting things about us:👌
⠀
🎞 Today, «Fashion to Max» is a media holding. Honestly, it's quite hard to believe that my idea has grown into such a large company. Today it includes 3 online magazines: fashion magazine online, @beautytomax and @traveltoMax.
⠀
Our team is over 50 people. I remember the times when we you could count the members of staff on the fingers of one hand.🎥
⠀
💼 «The Fashion to Max» team are based all around the world, and depending on the location of the project, we can quickly find the right people for the task.
⠀
I'll be happy to share some more insider information about @fashiontomax team - if you guess when I started the company, I promise to write the second post.😉
