15 Minutes To Action – Build Your Empire

After start-up and then scale-up, what comes next?

The level above these places is an empire; a concern that thrives and grows naturally, and which allows us to make a more meaningful impact on the world. In this week’s show, Nick talks you through the six peaks of value creation, one of the best ways of reaching this destination in your business life.


  • An empire allows us to make a more significant and quantifiable impact upon the world. It usually stokes feelings of negativity, but this is misplaced.
  • Vision and initial strategy are the fundamental elements of beginning an empire. Every great empire understands this implicitly.
  • A crucial component in every empire is the consistent flow of recurring customers providing revenue. Empires are not built upon constant states of “market-to-sell”
  • It’s vital to have a business that is metric-driven and insight-driven all the way through. This allows us to look for constant, achievable improvement and efficiency.


’The reason people scale their business is that they want to create freedom’

‘You’ve got to have a clear vision of where you want to get to’

’The eco-system is what can drive recurring revenue’

‘If you break it down into small parts, you can actually see the cogs in the machine’

My name is Nick Bradley. I’m an entrepreneur, author, speaker and investor. My background is in growing and scaling VC and Private Equity backed businesses.

Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life. As well as investing in growth businesses and backing turnarounds – with the ultimate aim of creating value from significant capital events.

I’m passionate about personal and professional development – showing up and being the best version of myself … every day.

My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations – so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms – utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
