Yahya is a family man, speaking coach, business mentor, legacy builder, and founder of Yahya Bakkar, a platform that helps experts create highly profitable impact-driven businesses that build wealth and legacy without sacrificing the freedom and time for their family. He is also one of the top speakers in the education market.
Yahya’s journey and the story have always been overcoming adversity. Both of his birth parents abandoned him. He was brought from the Middle East to the United States when he was 5 years old by his Step-mom and without his dad who was too busy with business travels. He was typically a shy boy trying to fit in the new world. It was in middle school when he joined a talent show that broke him out of his shell. Accordingly, the stage became a former validation for him, where he learned how to get the attention of people.
As Yahya grows older, he tries to figure himself out and becomes a people pleaser. He was constantly disturbing by what other people thought about him, especially his father. Their closest bond was only when he joined taekwondo and became a black-belter. Yahya’s dad thought that he needed to provide a living and protect his family but his way to justify it is by working 24/7.
At 14 years old, Yahya was left alone by his father for out-of -country works. This made him an early bloomer and a rebel. At an early age, he experienced sex, and partying, and do things without boundaries. Only he found the right path and clarity when he met his childhood sweetheart and now his wife. He realized that at an early age, no one’s going to save him. Therefore, he had to be self-reliant, resilient, and to be completely accountable to his own life.
Yahya reminded himself that he still has control over and it’s his mindset. He wanted to start a clean life free from negativities. So, he decided to get into different types of therapy to heal himself emotionally, and mentally. This was his way of healing generational wounds. He believes that he must handle it first in order to build an amazing family and life contrary to what his father did although he learned a lot from him.
In 2011, he started his speaking career. Later in 2017, he began building a brand that leads to hundreds of speaking events all over the world. However, Yahya believed that this was not him. He wanted to take off the masks he was wearing to show his authentic self. His first move was publishing a video about his secret addiction to porn that resulted in a loss of 80% of booking which he completely understands.
Relative to this, business models are a big thing to Yahya. Therefore, he shifted his business model in order to support his vision of raising a family and being always present with them. Yahya started a social media video challenge and was able to crack the code on how social media works. As well as how to build a multiple 7-figures coaching consulting business using it.
Yahya is now working online from home for three years. Being a student of life, this man is constantly learning. His mission to himself and to other people is to help them not just build generational wealth but also build a legacy without sacrificing your family, being rich in emotional accounts, navigating relationships, and winning challenges through integration between feminine and masculine energies!
