How To Be 10x In The Talent Economy – with Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg

This week, Nick is joined by Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg, the co-authors of ‘Game Changer: How To Be 10x In The Talent Economy’, a work designed to help you “identify, attract, vet, employ, manage, and retain—or become—the game-changing talent that will make a difference in the work world of tomorrow”.

Now more than ever, there has never been a more important time to refine the talent we acquire, and to become the valuable talent that others hope to attract.


  • If you are determined enough to succeed and play the long game in any kind of business, then eventually things will lean into your favour, and allow you to be a force for good in your sector.
  • It is not enough for a person to simply add value in terms of revenue. To truly integrate, they must also seek to align with a company’s values.
  • 10x’ers always work best when they are not treated as a simple cog in the machinery. Leaders must strive to treat their organisations as human beings in order to generate the best from each person.
  • There will always be a need for bureaucracy, but it must never impede progress or competitive advantage for an organisation. If this occurs, then the organisation runs in a detrimental way. We must streamline bureaucracy in order to put forth the right message and gain agility.


’The art is in the execution’

‘When you want something done, you go to the busiest person in the room’

‘Luck is the cross-section of opportunity and preparedness’

’It’s really about a people-centric management policy as opposed to a “cover your ass” management policy’

‘Rent fast – hire slow!’

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.
