Happy Anniversary – Maverick Paradox Magazine! A year ago was the official launch of the magazine. In late November 2019 I decided to add a Magazine to the Maverick Paradox Stable.
In usual Maverick style I contacted a few people that I considered were Socialised Mavericks and asked whether they were interested in joining my venture. I started with a small number of writers and this was my recruiting pitch:
“I’m thinking of starting a magazine written by mavericks, are you in?”Judith Germain
They all said yes. No questions asked other than ‘what do you need me to do?’. That’s the response of the Socialised Maverick. They all thought it would be a fun thing to do.
We still have some of those early writers as part of the Writing Team a year later:
- David Chislett
- Annabel Kaye
- Patrick Ballin
- Christine Perakis
- Joe Lawrence
- Josuel Rogers
and it’s great seeing them spreading their maverick views to ever increasing numbers of people each day. (I am also grateful for the other early writers who wrote regularly for the magazine for at last 6 months, sometimes longer). Without the Team the magazine wouldn’t be as popular as it is.
Thank you guys, my Swagger  of Socialised Mavericks.
Since then we’ve had a number of writers – currently we have 14 regular writers on The Writing Team and have had 34 guest writers. Click here to see the team.

It’s been an interesting year for sure, and not just because of Covid-19. Take a look here.
We’ve had visitors from over 100 countries, with the majority coming from the UK, US and the Netherlands. Hopefully the magazine will gain more readers from across the globe!
The most read articles in the last year were:
- The Hospitality Maverick – Harris Rosen
- The uncomfortable conversation
- 6 Traits of a maverick? Their attributes
- What follows confusion is clarity
- Maverick Leadership – what is it?
Happy Anniversary – Maverick Paradox Magazine – Here’s to the many years ahead … thanks for reading and supporting us.
 A Swagger is defined by Judith Germain as the Collective Noun for Socialised Mavericks.
