CPG life is challenging.

Let’s master it together.

Hi, I’m Yuval Selik.

Recovering CPG Founder

My wife Alla and I had a CPG dream and launched our organic skin care line, L’uvalla. But the dream turned into a nightmare, and we learned just how tough this industry can be for smaller emerging brands.

Founder & CEO of Promomash

After riding the CPG rollercoaster, I founded Promomash to help other brand founders avoid the same mistakes I made. We’re rewriting the book on CPG promotion – see how we help emerging brands looking to succeed in retail.

The 7 Hats Podcast Host

ABOUT ME

As the Israeli child of Russian-born immigrants forced to flee a war in their country, I saw what hard work was every day – and I was truly inspired by it. So much, in fact, that ever since I can remember I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Never mind that it took me three tries to get it right!

ABOUT THE 7 HATS PODCAST

I committed to learning more about how to obtain and maintain life fulfillment while building a business – and in the process, transformed my lifestyle. That’s where the inspiration for The 7 Hats originated – the notion that we all wear 7 “hats” that each need nurturing for a balanced and fulfilled life.
