In this episode Nick is presenting live in the US and asks his audience to think about the three questions that really matter when you are in business.
What is your life changing number? Why does that number matter? And is what you are doing now in your business going to get you to your life changing number?
Nick has built, scaled, and sold multiple businesses and explains the strategies that can be adopted to drive growth exponentially for your business
- What is your life changing number? The number that creates freedom for you
- A key driver for many is achieving freedom-being able to do what you want, when you want without any restrictions
- Is what you are doing now in your business going to get you to your life changing number?
- If you don’t make serious money when you are in your business, you can make serious money when you sell it
- There are strategies you can adopt in your business to drive a different type of growth
- You can grow a business through organic growth one customer at a time, its intentional but slow and a rite of passage
- Overlay strategic growth, which is faster, more focused and creates more growth to create exponential growth
- Structuring capital is about strategically placing capital to drive a higher value
- With a leveraged buy-out you take the asset value of the business and negotiate with the seller paying for the asset over a prolonged period from the profit of the business you are buying
- You need to consolidate and build the story of the business before the exit
- In order to make life changing money you must work towards life changing impact
- You can only really scale to the level of your identity
‘How you have built your business to date is only half the story’
‘You need to start with the end in and optimise the foundations of the business’
‘My driver is ‘team Bradley’ many of the decisions I’ve made in the last few years have been about them – creating a life for them and being the best role model

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.

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.
