Scaling and growing in business is not just about the practical things we do to develop our business. It’s also about the ways in which we develop ourselves.
With this in mind, Nick offers a different episode today, a personal edition, and one that centres around loss, and the positives that we can take from the darker moments of life.
- Loss is painful, but it also crystallises our focus. It amplifies the need for course correction and allows us the strength of will to follow that course.
- You can’t stop an event. It is what it is. But you can decide the way in which you react to these events. The quality of our lives are dictated by the quality of these decisions.
- People obsessed with their businesses often do not achieve the correct balance between that and their personal lives. There are times when this is permissible, but they must always be short periods. Look again at the values that started us.
- If you’ve been at the bottom, and you’ve hauled yourself out of it, then you know deep inside that already have the tools to do it again.
‘It’s about who you are and who you become through that journey’
‘I had to live a life much more aligned with my intentions, my values and my standards’
’Are you settling for something mediocre? And if so, why are you doing that?’
‘If you’re grateful for what you have then it’s the most amazing power you can have’

ABOUT THE HOST
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.
