Finding Your Focus In The C-Suite With Trey Taylor

Nick interviews Trey Taylor, author of the book "A CEO Only Does Three Things: Finding Your Focus in the C-Suite." Trey shares his personal journey of unexpectedly taking over his family's multi-generational financial business and the challenges he faced in learning the role of a CEO. He emphasises the importance of culture, people, and numbers in the CEO's job and how these three areas are interconnected. Trey discusses the significance of articulating and ritualising company values, sharing stories that exemplify those values, and creating a strong culture. He also highlights the role of the CEO in setting the agenda for the organisation and the importance of aligning the culture as the business scales.  KEY TAKEAWAYS The CEO's job is the most lonely job in the organisation, as they don't have peers and must make decisions that chart the course of the company. Vision is important, but it is more tactical than the three core areas of culture, people, and numbers that a CEO must focus on. Culture is crucial and should be articulated through values and behaviors. Ritualizing these values helps embed them into the organization. People are a key aspect of a CEO's role, from hiring the right individuals to ensuring they are supported and aligned with the company's values. Numbers are also important, and while the CFO may handle the execution, the CEO sets the agenda and ensures alignment with the company's goals. BEST MOMENTS "The CEO's job is the most lonely job in the organisation. That's the joy and the hurt of it."  "Vision is a lot more tactical than these three things are."  "Culture trumps everything."  "The reason you start a company is because something isn't true in the world and you want to be the one to make it true."  "Job performance is not results, performance, none of those things are. Culture performance is what is going to keep you on the path."  ABOUT THE GUEST Trey Taylor is the Managing Director of Threadneedle, the Taylor Family Office, Chief Executive Officer of Taylor Insurance Services, Managing Director of trinity | blue consulting and Founding Partner of Ascend Partners. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in History from Emory University, & a Juris Doctor degree in Tax & Corporate Transactions from Tulane. In 2020, Trey published his first book, A CEO Only Does Three Things.  Since that publication, he has appeared on 60+ podcasts and been featured in publications like INC., Entrepreneur, SHRM and others.  He speaks frequently as a keynote speaker challenging audiences to be more intentional, find more focus and get the right things done. In his private time, Trey is a WSET certified sommelier and a recent private pilot with a Cirrus SR22T.  He and his wife, Sheya, are the proud parents of Ret, Emmaline and Mary Salter.  They make their home in South Georgia, and travel frequently for work and pleasure.

Navigating Complexity In The World Of Dealmaking With JB Brown

Nick is joined by JB Brown, an experienced entrepreneur and mergers and acquisitions advisor. They delve into the topic of partnerships within businesses and the challenges that can arise, particularly when preparing for an exit. They discuss the importance of understanding each partner's goals and motivations, as well as the need for a solid partnership agreement from the start. JB shares personal experiences and insights, highlighting the significance of clear communication and trust in maintaining successful partnerships. They also touch on the role of private equity in resolving conflicts and creating win-win situations.  KEY TAKEAWAYS It is crucial to have a solid partnership agreement or operating agreement in place from the beginning to avoid conflicts and misunderstandings. When dealing with partnership disagreements, it is important to seek first to understand each party's true goals and motivations. In situations where partners have different timelines or end goals, creative solutions such as buying out the partner or structuring payment over time can be explored. Due diligence on potential partners is essential to ensure alignment of business philosophies and values. Trust and open communication are vital in partnerships, and regular monitoring of financials and company operations can help prevent issues from escalating. BEST MOMENTS "It's always our fault. I believe in radical accountability."  "The first thing I feel my responsibility is, is to seek first to understand what exactly each relevant party really wants."  "It all starts with a really solid partnership agreement and/or operating agreement."  "What saved me was when we were doing negotiations, we had also started a new brand."

How To Build Your Empire With Adam Coffey

Nick welcomes back Adam Coffey, a renowned expert in scaling, growing value, and exiting companies, to share his insights from his latest book, "Empire Builder: The Road to a Billion," where he discusses the challenges faced by entrepreneurs and offers strategies for success. Adam discusses the importance of understanding unit-level economics, focusing on needs-based businesses with recurring revenue streams, and diversifying assets through strategic partnerships and exits. Adam also delves into the mindset shift required to scale from a control-focused founder to a visionary leader.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Understanding unit-level economics is crucial for building a successful business. Entrepreneurs need to focus on profitability and ensure that their business model is sustainable. Recognise the need to let go of control and empower others as the business scales. Transition from being a micromanager to a conductor of the orchestra, managing processes instead of minutiae. Consider selling the business at a certain size to diversify assets and protect against risks. Selling to a private equity firm can provide financial security and accelerate wealth creation. Private equity is a growing investment class and will continue to play a significant role in the market. Entrepreneurs should understand the private equity landscape and leverage their capital and expertise. The ultimate goal is not necessarily to build a billion-dollar empire, but to achieve financial security and success at different milestones, such as reaching $30 million or $100 million in revenue. BEST MOMENTS "I want to change those odds. I want you to be one of the seven percent that get to a million, one of the four percent that get to 10 million, and then let's scale on up to 100 million."  "I think too often times entrepreneurs just don't know where they're going."  "I want you to get asset diversification to protect your family against an unknown risk."  "Real estate makes millionaires, business makes billionaires."  "The reason we're getting high prices is because that asset class exists."  VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Your Bulletproof Business Plan For 2024

Nick shares his insights and strategies for goal-setting and business planning, focussing on the importance of clarity, simplicity, and execution in achieving business success. Nick takes you through a step-by-step process, starting with creating a vivid vision for the business and setting goals aligned with that vision. He then breaks down the goals into operational drivers and strategic initiatives, and further refines them into projects and actionable tasks.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Setting clear goals and creating a strategic plan is crucial for business success. The one-page business plan framework consists of four quadrants: vision, goals, projects, and actions. The vision should articulate the desired future state of the business in clear detail. Goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART). Projects and actions should be aligned with the goals and vision, and executed within a specific timeframe. BEST MOMENTS "I'm a big believer that complexity fails and simplicity scales."  "The best time to start exit planning is the day you start your business."  "If you're focusing too much on profit, then you get yourself into a situation where if you're not selling anything, you ain't got any profit anyway."  "Culture drives everything, but it's one of those things that you have to build over time."  "Sometimes there's a lack of alignment, so you can create this work independently, but your key people in your business aren't involved, so they feel like they're detached."  VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

How Private Equity Finds & Hires The Best Talent With Rob Huxtable

Nick is joined by Rob Huxtable, a partner at executive search firm Falcon, to discuss what it takes to thrive as a C-suite leader in a private equity-backed company. Rob shares his expertise on the characteristics and skills necessary for success in this environment, delving into the importance of self-esteem, execution at velocity, hands-on involvement, effective communication, and influence without authority. They also explore the need for alignment with the specific governance model of a private equity firm. KEY TAKEAWAYS Self-esteem and vulnerability are crucial traits for success in a private equity-backed company. Executives need to believe in themselves, be open to recognising their gaps, and continuously strive for improvement. Execution at velocity is highly valued in the private equity world. Executives must be able to make decisions quickly, be data-driven, and have a sense of urgency to drive results. Hands-on involvement is essential in private equity-backed companies. Executives should be willing to roll up their sleeves, be involved in various aspects of the business, and have a deep understanding of the operations. Effective communication is key. Private equity firms value clear, succinct communication that includes the problem, solution, and action plan. Building trust and maintaining alignment with the board is crucial for success. The ideal skill set for executives in private equity-backed companies includes a strong foundation from a blue-chip company, experience in progressively smaller businesses, engineering scalable operations, and the ability to align with the investment thesis of the firm. Adaptability and the ability to influence without authority are also important skills to possess. BEST MOMENTS "If you don't prepare properly for what is the biggest financial event of your life, you are the prey."  "Private equity investors are some of the brightest and most ambitious and boldest business minds out there, but they're also risk averse, thoughtful."  "You better be reinventing yourself and improving on a constant basis."  "The minute you let that moat run dry, they have no choice but to infiltrate and start taking more control than you might like." "We want to make sure they are systematised and mechanised to scale, without excessive dependency on people and more dependency on process."  VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Using Data & AI To Scale Your Marketing With Joe Stolte

Nick is in conversation with Joe Stolte, an entrepreneur with an impressive track record of successful exits, to discuss the power of AI in business and its rapid growth and impact across the world. Joe shares his experience in using AI to drive successful marketing campaigns, particularly through email newsletters. He emphasises the importance of understanding the customer and delivering valuable content that resonates with their needs and interests. Joe also introduces his company, daily.ai, which leverages AI to curate high-quality content from thought leaders and experts, providing businesses with valuable insights and resources. KEY TAKEAWAYS Email is a powerful marketing channel that offers more control and ownership compared to social media platforms. It allows businesses to directly reach their target audience and build relationships. Newsletters are an effective way to provide valuable content to customers and prospects. By curating content from thought leaders and addressing topics of interest to the audience, businesses can establish themselves as a trusted resource. AI can be used to generate content, but it should be treated as a tool rather than a replacement for human expertise. Human oversight and testing are necessary to ensure the quality and effectiveness of the content. Adaptive learning and iterative intelligence can enhance the performance of marketing campaigns. By analysing audience behaviour and feedback, businesses can continuously improve their content and better align it with customer preferences and needs. BEST MOMENTS "Email is an asset that you own. You don't own your LinkedIn followers. You don't own your Twitter followers. You're beholden to the algorithm and how that works."  "You've got to take your client, your prospect off the platform"  "What we do is we look at AI as a really, really, really good intern."  "Generative AI is input, process, output. What you get is what you get. And if you're not testing it, you're not bathing it in the reality of the marketplace of what your audience wants and watching actually how they perform, then you're never gonna know if it actually works."  VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Nick welcomes Chip Conley, a renowned speaker and author, about the concept of midlife wisdom and the transformative power of embracing new opportunities. Chip shares his personal journey of transitioning from a successful CEO to becoming a modern elder and mentor at Airbnb. He discusses the societal stigma around aging and how reframing our mindset can lead to a more fulfilling and purposeful life. Chip also highlights the importance of cultivating wisdom, navigating midlife transitions, and embodying a regenerative lifestyle.

Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes.https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS We need to shift mindset on aging from negative to positive, emphasising the growth and opportunities that come with age. We must encourage individuals to adopt a growth mindset, where they focus on improving themselves rather than proving themselves, and view success as learning rather than winning. The Modern Elder Academy helps individuals navigate the transitions that often occur during midlife, providing support and guidance during this transformative period. Embrace a regenerative lifestyle and find purpose in giving back to the world, fostering a sense of connection and fulfilment. BEST MOMENTS "Wisdom is metabolised experience, so your life lessons digested, which leads to distilled compassion." "The person who, going into their 50s, is willing to become a beginner again, willing to actually try something out that they're not very good at, but to actually see if they can get into the flow of it."  "We see people who just say, you know what, I know what's next for me. And this group of people are going to hold me accountable and be my support." "I was damn good at getting press for myself and my business, but let's make sure that myself goes first. I was living a life that was very, very dedicated to caring what everybody thought about me."  VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

The Psychology Of Great Leadership With Jeremy Snape

Nick welcomes Jeremy Snape, a former cricket player for England and now a sports psychologist and leadership consultant. They delve into the parallels between sports and business leadership, focusing on mindset and the importance of a winning mindset. Jeremy shares personal stories from his cricket career, including moments of despair and triumph, and discusses the power of staying present and in control of one's thinking. He also highlights the need for preparation, scenario planning, and the ability to block out pressure.  KEY TAKEAWAYS We need to focus on the present moment, control our thinking and breathing, and stay true to one's strengths. There is a need to manage pressure and negative self-talk - strategies such as breathing techniques, pre-shot routines, and positive self-talk help us to stay focused and perform at one's best. Leaders can learn from top performers in various fields, including sports, to gain insights and inspiration. By studying the habits and strategies of elite athletes, leaders can apply similar principles to their own performance and strive for continuous improvement. Sustained success comes from being purpose-driven and having a bigger why behind one's actions. This purpose can help leaders stay motivated and overcome challenges. BEST MOMENTS "I just thought, what have you done? You've ruined the game. You're never going to play for England again."  "The only thing that I can control is my thinking, my breathing, my balance in this moment."  "It's almost letting go of it in a way." "There's definitely some kind of ability to vision what they want in technicolor."  VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

How To Scale Your Business & Enjoy Your Life At The Same Time With Purdeep Sangha

Nick is joined by Purdeep Sangha, an expert in business growth, scaling, and leadership, with a specific focus on family businesses. Purdeep shares his personal journey, growing up in an immigrant family and working in the agricultural business. He discusses his transition from the corporate world to entrepreneurship, driven by a desire to align his values and make a bigger impact. The conversation delves into the importance of mindfulness and meditation in effective leadership, highlighting the benefits of emotional mastery and improved decision-making. Purdeep also offers practical advice for those looking to incorporate mindfulness practices into their daily lives.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Family businesses have the potential to scale and transition into successful enterprises if they are structured and operated as such. Mindfulness and meditation practices can have a significant impact on effective leadership, improving emotional mastery, decision-making capabilities, problem-solving skills, and creativity. Creating empty space and being in an alpha theta brainwave state can enhance creativity and problem-solving abilities. Mindfulness and meditation should be seen as a lifestyle rather than a short practice, and consistency is key to experiencing the benefits. Emotions play a crucial role in leadership, as they radiate energy and can be controlled more effectively than thoughts. Developing emotional mastery can positively impact leadership effectiveness and overall results. BEST MOMENTS "I was just kind of tired. I was at a point in my life where I needed to change. So I told my wife that I was going to quit."  "I was constantly about making change and having an impact. A lot of the other people were comfortable. They weren't really taking a look at future opportunities."  "Meditation and mindfulness is a lifestyle. It's not a practice that's there for five or 10 minutes. It's a way of being rather than just a specific five-minute exercise."  "When you reduce your stress, you improve your health. There's a direct correlation there." "You have more control over your emotions than you think, because a lot of it has to do with your physiology. You can use your body to actually influence your emotions."

Buying Companies, Growing Value & Achieving A High Value Exit With Walker Deibel & Ryan Tansom

Nick is joined this time by Ryan Tansom and Walker Deibel, for a lively discussion about the complexities and misconceptions surrounding buying and selling businesses. They address the rise of misleading marketing tactics that promise easy success in the world of acquisitions, highlighting the importance of understanding the true value of a company and the practical steps needed to achieve a successful transaction. They also explore the different perspectives of acquisition entrepreneurs and independent sponsors, shedding light on the scaling gap that often exists after a deal is closed. With their combined expertise, this fireside chat between three experts provides invaluable insights into the intricacies of the M&A landscape and the importance of approaching it with knowledge and diligence. KEY TAKEAWAYS There is a prevalence of misleading marketing tactics in the M&A industry, where people are promised easy and risk-free ways to buy businesses. There is a need for buyers to have a realistic understanding of the value of a business and not overestimate its worth based on unrealistic expectations or anecdotes. It is important for buyers to have a solid understanding of financial statements, particularly the cash flow statement, to make informed decisions and ensure the financial viability of the business. Some buyers may successfully acquire a business but struggle with managing and growing it effectively, leading to potential losses or failure. BEST MOMENTS "You're helping the next generation of entrepreneurs buy companies the right way."  "I think an acquisition entrepreneur is potentially one of the only exits that'll actually work for someone." "I felt like I was as equipped as I could be going into it. All right. I ended up selling that company for seven figures about seven years later."  "You've got to get in the game. If you want to win."  VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

David Lesperance On Designing Your Tax Efficient Back Up Plan

Nick talks to David Lesperance, a tax advisor and international tax expert, about the complex world of tax mitigation and strategic planning for entrepreneurs and business owners looking to optimise their wealth and minimise tax liabilities. David shares his extensive experience in helping clients navigate the intricacies of residency, citizenship, and domicile options in various jurisdictions, and emphasises the importance of understanding individual goals, family needs, and wildfire concerns to develop tailored strategies.  Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes.https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS It is important to consider individual and family needs when planning for tax mitigation and relocation. Factors such as education, lifestyle, and security should be taken into account. Diversification of assets and investments can help mitigate tax liabilities and provide more financial flexibility. This includes considering different jurisdictions and currencies for wealth management. Working with a fee-based advisor rather than a commission-based salesperson can ensure unbiased advice and a focus on the client's best interests. Reverse engineering can be a useful approach to tax planning. By starting with the desired outcome and working backwards, individuals can identify the most effective strategies for minimising tax obligations. BEST MOMENTS "The goal is to keep the dollars paid as low as possible. Zero times even ninety nine point nine percent rate is still zero dollars paid." "Most people tend to over-index and over-invest in their current location and their current currency." "The more direct way of saying it is protecting your ass and your assets."

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes.https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS The private equity industry has evolved over the years, shifting from an entrepreneurial and sales-oriented focus to a more financial-driven and risk-averse approach. Access to debt for private equity deals has become more challenging, with banks becoming more cautious and requiring higher equity contributions from buyers. Emotional preparation is crucial for entrepreneurs considering an exit from their business. The transition from being in control of their own company to working in someone else's organisation can be challenging and emotionally taxing. It is important for entrepreneurs to have a clear end game and realistic expectations when it comes to selling their business. Focusing on the financial goals and objectives can help navigate the emotional aspects of the transaction. Ego and unrealistic expectations can hinder successful exits. Entrepreneurs should be open to advice and guidance from experienced professionals who can provide a realistic assessment of the value and potential of their business. BEST MOMENTS "Warren Buffett's famous for saying you can't get wealthy paying a lot of taxes." "Money doesn't really want to work. Money wants other people to work." "You spend all this time creating a great business, a valuable business, defined by its financial performance, but also how you've built the whole machine." "What you're missing is you're not focusing on what your goal was. Your goal was two to three times revenue." "Sometimes entrepreneurs, they get focused on the wrong details."

The Disciplines Of Private Equity That Can Be Applied To Any Business

Nick delves into his past experience in private equity and shares the disciplines and mindset that can be applied to any business. He discusses the practicalities of private equity, including the analysis of markets and potential, the development of a focused strategy, the importance of talent and incentives, leveraging resources effectively, and creating processes for continuous performance improvement.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Private equity firms excel at analysis and market understanding, going deep into customer data, competition, and macro trends to create a business that dominates its market. Private equity firms focus on a few core initiatives that drive significant results, rather than spreading themselves too thin. They prioritize execution and value expansion, with a strong emphasis on rigor and discipline. Talent is crucial in private equity, with a focus on getting the right people in the right seats and providing incentives that align with performance. Building a strong board and fostering a results-oriented mindset throughout the organization are also key. Private equity firms are masters of leverage, managing capital aggressively and working the balance sheet to maximize efficiency. They look for incremental gains and optimize processes and systems to drive performance improvements. Understanding the emotional frame and managing emotions is important in dealing with private equity. Recognising that it is a game and maintaining a mindset that allows for detachment and strategic decision-making can help level the playing field and increase the chances of success. BEST MOMENTS "Focus is a superpower." "Are you going to be the prey or the prize?" "Private equity likes to simplify things." "Private equity operates well from scarce resources." "Private equity is about results orientation and creating processes that spur on performance improvements."

Are You The Prize Or The Prey?

Nick delves into the darker side of private equity. While acknowledging the positive aspects of private equity, such as wealth creation and entrepreneurial freedom, Nick explores the psychological game of private equity M&A. He poses the question, "Are you the prize or the prey?" and explains how private equity views business owners as assets.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Private equity firms play a game of buying low to sell high, and it's important for business owners to understand this dynamic when selling their company. Being aware of the tactics and strategies used by private equity firms can help business owners negotiate better deals and avoid being taken advantage of. Business owners need to determine whether they are the prize or the prey in the eyes of potential buyers, particularly private equity firms. If a business has high cash flow, sustainable growth, a competitive advantage, and a strong culture, it is more likely to be seen as the prize. On the other hand, if a business has weak financials and lacks these key attributes, it may be seen as the prey and buyers may use the weaknesses to negotiate a lower price. Falling into the prey category can result in a significantly lower sale price and less advantageous terms for the business owner. Private equity firms may use various tactics, such as renegotiating the price during due diligence or structuring the deal with unfavorable terms, to reduce the value of the business and maximize their own returns. Business owners who position themselves as the prize and demonstrate their value and worthiness as a seller are more likely to negotiate better deals and secure higher sale prices. Confidence, preparation, and understanding the playbook of private equity firms can give business owners an advantage in the negotiation process. It is crucial for business owners to be aware of the potential risks and pitfalls of selling to private equity firms. These risks include the possibility of a retrade, where the buyer reduces the agreed-upon price after conducting due diligence, as well as the potential for reputational damage if a failed sale process becomes known in the market.  BEST MOMENTS "The difference between being the prize and the prey can be a life-changing sum of money." "You want to walk into any sales process as the prize." "If you're seen as a peer, the games that the private equity firms play won't work on you." "You may not be ready right now, but there will be a time in the future when you need to be the prize." "Don't let the process of selling your business become a car crash. Prepare and understand the playbook." VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Why Saying No Can Accelerate Success

You don't always have to say yes to everything in order to get ahead in the world. Sometimes, this "entrepreneurial curse" can lead to great things, but as Nick explains in this episode, there's also a great power to be found in saying no from time to time. KEY TAKEAWAYS As entrepreneurs, we often feel as though if we say no to something, that we will somehow be missing out. This fear of missing out can often land us with headaches we can do without. Write down 25 goals on a piece of paper (business-related), then circle the top five. Look at what is remaining and decide for yourself whether these secondary goals are worth pursuing. The real threats to our time management are not the distractions we think are taking our attention. The real threats are the hidden activities, that make us think we're working hard, but which do not ultimately move the needle. BEST MOMENTS 'There is power in saying no in your business' 'If you can get disciplined and focussed on your top 20% of priorities, then they will typically account for 80% of your business' 'You have to eliminate those distractions' 'it's easy to say yes, it's hard to say no' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Managers tend to fix problems by hiring more people, whereas leaders empower the already existing teams. When looking for your ideal COO, you have to understand yourself as a CEO first. Look at your strengths and weaknesses as well as the core areas of the business that feed your energy. You have to define the roles you give to people and what they're there to do. You can't empower people and then revoke at will. Never be afraid to turn people down. True leaders have to say no more than they say yes. We are there to grow and empower others, but we shouldn't ever have to give it all away.

Often businesses are bought as platforms, where a company is purchased as a starting point, and several adjacent businesses are acquired and added to it. There needs to be a certain basic skill set for those who buy an online business, which limits the audience when it comes to potential buyers.

Breaking Through Business Growth - Part 4- Platforming

In the fourth part of his series on Breaking Through Business Growth, Nick discusses the platforming stage of scaling up, and how it ties into value expansion and strategic thinking. KEY TAKEAWAYS You can only scale up through people, processes and systems. As a leader, your identity has to shift in order for you to be successful. When a business becomes a platform, it's an acquisition that acts as a starting point for other acquisitions in that sector. A platformed business creates value by facilitating exchanges between consumers and producers of goods and services. For this to happen there has to be a large network of users and resources. The fundamental requirement if you want to take your company from a business to a platform, is having a strong management team in place. BEST MOMENTS 'It's not an easy road' 'Showing that you can do these things before your life changing exit is a positive thing' 'We're talking about taking what you have created and being able to transition that to another buyer' 'When you break through this final stage, you are becoming the platform' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Ruari Fairbairns On Changing Your Relationship With Alcohol

Nick is joined by Ruari Fairbairns, the founder and CEO of One Year No Beer, to talk about alcohol - the impact it can have if you're a regular drinker, and what effects this can have on you as an entrepreneur. Nick and Ruari also talk about the journey that led to such a groundbreaking, innovative concept as One Year No Beer, and what we can change if alcohol is showing up in our lives in ways that fail to serve us. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes.https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS When you're a serious entrepreneur, you need to show up as your best self every single time - not just in business, but everywhere. The ones who do this, are the ones who last the longest. As business owners, the idea that alcohol is something we need to be participating in, in order to relax and unwind, really needs to change. The evidence against it is overwhelming. We must find other ways to "take the edge off" when it comes to relaxation. We need to subsidise and fund research into more healthy forms of "relaxation" with the help of the alcohol industry itself. The first step towards building a better relationship with alcohol is to remove the belief that you are an "all or nothing" person, and change that belief to one of feeling fully in control. BEST MOMENTS 'I guarantee this will be one of the best things you can do for yourself' 'Entrepreneurship is a game of sustainability and attrition' 'I am entirely in control.

Breaking Through Business Growth - Part 3 - Expanding Value

In the third part of his mini-series on breaking through business growth, Nick focuses upon expanding value, and why it might be the most crucial part of your business exit strategy. KEY TAKEAWAYS Most people think that they start a business and then exit a business, without really ever considering the crucial "expansion" phase that can dynamically increase the exit numbers beyond their initial expectations. Value expansion is sometimes referred to as the buy-and-build approach, because it encompasses the ways in which you bring companies together to create a group. Scaling is the art of making sure you are no longer the thing holding up your business's growth. It's the act of stepping out and putting into place processes that make your business thrive and breathe without you. When you bring in strategic partners, it's all about making sure that you've created a platform that can scale more assertively through strategic levers. BEST MOMENTS 'This is kind of the centre point' 'The centre of value expansion is strategic growth' 'You have to ensure that you're not the bottleneck any more' 'You have to have the plan' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Adam Coffey On The Exit Strategy Playbook

Adam Coffey is the founding partner of CEO Advisory Guru, LLC. Best-selling author of The Private Equity Playbook and The Exit-Strategy Playbook. In this episode, Adam joins Nick to talk about how the world of private equity works, and how you can position your business to have a successful exit.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes.https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Many business owners use a magic hockey stick approach to valuation, indicating that upon their exit, the company will somehow produce record-beating results never seen before. The best way to demonstrate any success is to actually test the water. With 80% of all deals going to private equity, it's more important than ever that we understand how that universe works, in order to maximise our own potential. Business owners focus their entire energies on building their company. That same level of dedication is needed when it comes time to exit. Private equity firms rely on investment bankers to sell their companies, managing competitive tension and the entire process. These bankers possess exclusive insights unknown to the general public. BEST MOMENTS 'I buy them, I put them together and I build empires' 'Most private equity firms do a really bad job of laying out what the future will look like' 'Think of all the effort that goes into building your business. You need to put some effort into selling your business as well' 'Let me show you what I've built' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Breaking Through Business Growth - Part 2: Scaling Up

Nick presents the second part of a continuing mini series in which he breaks down one of the most crucial concepts you have to understand when building a successful business - breaking through business growth. In this second edition, Nick talks about the scale up phase following a business's creation, where you should aim when it comes to goal setting, and the difference between scaling and growing. KEY TAKEAWAYS Because of the rapidly changing pace of the world around us, we need to be more agile when it comes to finding ways to scale. Technological advances such as AI are disruptive tools that can aid us. Once you hit eight figures and have a reasonable level of profitability, you become very attractive to private equity firms. The key differentiator between growing and scaling - is the growth predictable, is it repeatable, and is it potentially sustainable? To qualify as a scale-up, you must conform to the following criteria: annual growth, turnover generating between £1m and £3m, and must have raised a million in capital to scale. BEST MOMENTS 'If you want to build something valuable, don't stick around too long' 'There are things that change, evolve, as the world evolves' 'My advice to you is to have a target of an eight figure threshold to punch through' 'If you have something that can repeat again and again, that's where you drive the highest levels of value' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Breaking Through Business Growth - Part 1: Starting Up

Nick presents the very first part of an all-new mini series in which he breaks down one of the most crucial concepts you have to understand when building a successful business - breaking through business growth. In this first edition, Nick talks about that all-important start up step, including the things you need to put in place at the very beginning. KEY TAKEAWAYS Even if you have not yet started your business growth journey, it's important to recognise the important steps along the way so that you can reverse engineer the outcomes in advance. In order to be successful when you start a company, you need product market fit - something that solves an identifiable, meaningful problem for the market you wish to serve. Before you get into lead generation, you have to have the offer correctly in place. You shouldn't move on to anything else in startup until this is done. You must be able to build some kind of repeatable, predictable sales model. Devise the formula that works independently of your input and your growth will begin exponentially. BEST MOMENTS 'I built my reputation on scaling up' 'Once you master start up you then move into scale up' 'You get to a point where you grow quickly because you have your offer dialled in' 'It's usually the founder who has to sell that vision and go out there and get those first few sales' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Dr. John Demartini, known as the "Godfather Of Personal Development", is a world-renowned human behaviour expert, with a four-decade body of work and studies into the human condition. He is also the author of several books designed to accelerate our thought potential, including his world-renowned system known as "The DeMartini Method", which the world's great thinkers have adopted in order to "create new perspectives and paradigms in thinking and feeling". Dr DeMartini joins Nick for a very special episode in which he shares the powerful story of how he became who he is today, the mission he's constantly on to empower people with knowledge and wisdom, and some practical tips that you can start using immediately in order to gain mastery over your own destiny. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes.https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Affirmations have the power to change us forever if we dedicate ourselves properly. In Dr Demartini's case, he was able to instil the idea that he could be a teacher and mentor, despite having no formal training, by repeating to himself that he was a genius, and that he could apply his wisdom. We live moment by moment, according to our set of inner values and priorities. When we align with the highest in this priority list, the action becomes almost automatic. It is in this area where we are the most effective and efficient. When we challenge ourselves we find out what we're truly capable of. Stepping outside of our comfort zone is where the best life lessons are learned. Many believe that fear is something to be shunned, but it's a tool that we can use to guide us to better outcomes. It's there to let us know when the objectives we're chasing are hollow ones. BEST MOMENTS 'The perception of loss of that which you seek, or the perception of gain of that which you try to avoid, generates voids that drive value' 'I am a genius and I apply my wisdom' 'I became wealthy because I delegated!' 'Fear is a feedback mechanism to let you know that you're pursuing something that's not objective, not congruent, and a bit of a fantasy' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

15 Reasons Why Your Business Won't Sell To Private Equity

Why is it that some businesses that are otherwise seen as valuable still aren't attracting sale bids from private equity? In this episode, Nick breaks down fifteen reasons why you might be being overlooked, and what you can do to turn your company into something far more attractive in order to make that life-changing exit. KEY TAKEAWAYS You need to have not just a high cash flow and profitable business, but also a sustainable growth story that you can tell to the world. If your business is one that attracts customers who visit but only buy once, then it becomes an inefficient business model. The desired situation would be to sell multiple times to the same customer. When you have a product that's unique, people will seek you out in order to gain your solution. By this token, you are immediately standing both for something and against something, which is attractive. Numbers aren't everything - culture matters more than you know. A company with massive cultural issues will be an instant turnoff for anyone looking to invest, as it means a wholesale restructuring and re-education initiative is required. BEST MOMENTS 'You don't make serious money when you run a business, but you do when you sell it' 'Growing is obvious. No one is going to buy a business that isn't growing' 'You need to start measuring the lifetime value of that client' 'You've got to have values' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

At the age of 20, Brad began breaking national sales records as the #1 sales representative in a company of more than 30,000 and continued to do so year after year. Brad joins Nick to talk about the ways in which we can channel the disciplines from all areas of life into success as an entrepreneur, and how, through discipline, anyone can make the transition to the life you've always wanted.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes.https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Never rest up when you hit your objective. Look for the next point you want to hit and plan accordingly. if you stand still, you stagnate. We should always assess what the absolute best and worst case scenarios will be when it comes to planning and goal setting, but we must be aware that neither of those will be very likely to happen. There's a general belief that entrepreneurs need to be good at everything, but that's not true. Focus on what you are good at, and let others bolster you in other areas. You have to decide for yourself what success looks like and feels like in order to hit the marks. If success means money then you can measure that on a chart. If success means getting things done, then you can measure that by the impact you make. BEST MOMENTS 'What you need to plan for is not the absolute worst, but the likely worst' 'Slow down, but don't stop' 'You have to spend the time thinking about how you're going to handle both success and failure in the future' 'I'm very good at falling on my face a lot of times before I learn the lesson' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Tracy Litt is a world-renowned spiritual advisor and mindset coach to visionary women leaders and entrepreneurs; a highly sought-after keynote speaker, TEDx speaker, and international best-selling author of 'Worthy Human'. In a conversation that centres not only on business but life itself, Nick and Tracy discuss the ways in which we c an reframe challenge in order to increase the learnings and move more swiftly towards our goals, and also the very physiological impacts of fear itself upon us. KEY TAKEAWAYS If you let fear paralyse you or force you into looking backwards, it can slow you down and stall any plans you have to reach your full potential. No matter what's happened to you in life, you can always reframe, reverse, turn things around, and even accelerate you towards the place you want to be. You have a higher self that only holds you in your full potential, only sees you in your wholeness, is complete love, full trust, and is the embodiment of the energy from which we all derived. Safe equals same to your internal wiring, which is why the unknown feels so scary until you understand it differently. BEST MOMENTS 'Imagine if you look at everything in life not as an obstacle, but something that serves you' 'When you understand your purpose and your passion, it's not work' 'We are going to change for generations to come' 'Your journey of ascension into becoming that higher self, will always happen.

Can Every Business Be Built To Sell?

After several high-profile business exits in the world of business, Nick examines the question of whether or not every business can be built to sell, and more importantly, should it be a part of the business's DNA from the very beginning? KEY TAKEAWAYS There is always a point in your business's life, when your strategy should be fundamentally about the exit. There is also a point in time when you should focus purely on building a great business above all else. At the start up phase, make sure you have a great understanding of the market - who your ideal customer is, and providing unique, remarkable solutions to their problems. Once the mindset shift has been made towards sale, the decisions you make will be dramatically more effective when it comes to value expansion. Companies may acquire others simply because they do not wish to compete against them in an emerging market. Sometimes they are merely hoping to acquire the talent, or gain geographic expansion. BEST MOMENTS 'You'd be surprised how many exits are reverse engineered with a clear buyer in the frame, months or even years out' 'In private equity we reverse engineer the outcome' 'There are lots of different ways that we can shape the story and the narrative' 'Every business can certainly be built to sell' VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Lee Benson On Improving Your Most Important Number

Lee Benson has more than 25 years of experience as a CEO. He owned and led Able Aerospace, then sold it for 9-figures to Textron Aviation. He also founded Execute to Win (ETW) to help senior leadership teams experience similar results by working better together at improving their organisation’s Most Important Number. But what is this, and how can it benefit you? In this episode, Nick meets Lee to discuss the nature of the Most Important Number, and how he empowers teams and leaders using his Mind Methodology, in order for them to be able to achieve and identify the work that drives that number. KEY TAKEAWAYS People create all of the value in your business, so they must be always held up as the most important component in your business's success. Companies always start with a few core people, but as we scale, we should always look for those who will provide us with the best chance for maximal growth.

Does Having A Board Increase The Value Of Your Business?

Does having a board of advisors actually increase the value of your business? In this episode, Nick talks about whether or not having those added perspectives and a collective knowledge base actually can improve your business’ worth in the long term. KEY TAKEAWAYS At the start-up phase of business, it's often just you and the people you network with. Things begin to seriously change when coaches or mentors are brought in to help. As the business grows, it's valuable to have advanced help and guidance in order to help you shape your outcomes. This is the formation of a board. Boards provide a wide perspective during the strategic growth phase, allowing for a wealth of experience when you need it most. When you are in the journey from 7 to 8 figures, you need to build the board. When you break into 8 figures, you need a full board. BEST MOMENTS “As businesses evolve, you need more advanced help.” “You're actually starting to build a board the moment that mentors become involved.” “The boards are generally very effective, well engaged and well organised.” “There's a clear delineation between strategies created at the board.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it).

Amy Porterfield On Successfully Starting An Online Business

Amy Porterfield is a master of online business acumen and why working for yourself can give you the financial, time, and location freedom to change how you experience your one shot at life. Amy joins Nick to talk about why life is too short to stay in a job you can't stand and how you can break free from the constraints of employment and break free into something far more rewarding and fulfilling. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  If you don't take action, you'll never be able to figure out what the next steps are. Be brave, step forward, and take it one decision at a time. Never be afraid to admit that you want something better for yourself. The first step to freedom is telling yourself it's okay to dream bigger. The most valuable factor to alter when you strike out on your own is your mindset. You have to begin with the belief that you can make this happen if you want to. Before you teach anything, you need to have some kind of proven track record in that area. But this doesn't mean that you need to have spent more time in that area than people you wish to serve - you just need the results. BEST MOMENTS 'Even if it's a good job on paper, it's okay to want something more' 'I felt really passionate about it - it was like, game on!'

Can You Flip Businesses Like Real Estate?

Nick presents an episode that looks at whether it is possible to flip businesses in the same way you would real estate. A topic that is especially interesting now. By 2030, most of the baby boomers will have reached retirement age, which could mean that a lot more businesses than normal will be up for sale, over the next few years. He compares the two investment models by explaining the pros, cons, and risks of flipping businesses and real estate. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Business flipping usually involves buying a company for a low price, enhancing it to quickly make it more valuable, then, selling it for a large profit. This is a model that is used for private equity investment. There is more risk with business flipping than there is with real estate. It is quite hard to sell a company. Only about 20% of businesses doing under 10 million in revenue will sell. But when you do succeed you can triple your return or more. As well as turnover, the people that run it, the processes, the structures, the quality of the customer base, the brand, and the culture, have an extremely high impact on the value of a business. If the founder leaving means key staff members or customers will leave too, the value of the business would fall. BEST MOMENTS  'You are trying to buy a business for the lowest possible price' 'In real estate, even the lower value properties sell' 'Due diligence does not have to be this huge, elongated process' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Are you ready to create your high-value exit?  Apply to work with us today at https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment  ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

You can't stamp them out, but can learn how to defeat them and their toxicity. It's okay to enrage a narcissist if you have to. Don't ever fear the fury, because it manifests itself in childish ways - exhibitionist ways. Narcissists are adept at finding a way to push through their plans through a third party, thereby excusing themselves from blame and recourse. Narcissists have no empathy for other people, and cannot be cured or healed of this condition. They thrive on narcissist supply - adulation, prestige and possessions. BEST MOMENTS 'If you can learn to stand in your power then nobody can touch you' 'You're dealing with a two year old having a tantrum' 'Narcissists are always at their worst right before they're ready to give up' 'It is a disorder.

That is when the greatest growth occurs. These days we have to be far more mindful of the state of the world than ever before. External factors are affecting people far more then they did pre-pandemic. We need to raise our awareness levels. Always celebrate the wins when they happen, but don't take your eyes off what you can fix in the long term to make life easier. If we truly want to see things in a more progressive way, then we need to be able to have conversations about mental health and wellbeing.

But these periods of reinvigoration and reflection are essential. The difference between people who are building personal brands via bootstrapping, and those doing it off the back of a partnership or network, is that money seems to favour an already established name. If you have a platform at all, use it build things and start things moving in the world. If you do that then the momentum will eventually build, and people will come to you. A culture in a business is built slowly and evolves over time. It grows around the people who work within it and becomes a representation of who they are and what they wish to be. BEST MOMENTS 'It comes back to what you build' 'He's surrounded by people whose job it is, is to manipulate him into thinking he makes good decisions' 'We can't argue that he isn't a visionary' 'What we're witnessing is a clash of cultures' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Are you ready to create your high-value exit?  Apply to work with us today at https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment  Mark Drager - https://www.markdrager.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

In this very special 300th episode of Scale Up With Nick Bradley, Nick is joined by Mark Drager for an all new type of show - Scale Back - in which he and Mark will take a monthly look at the business world and use their unique and broad perspectives to not only reflect on what's hot in business, but also to answer any burning questions you may have.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes all it takes is a kind, thoughtful word from someone you admire, to reinforce the path you've chosen for yourself. It takes courage to put yourself out there, in business and life. Not only do you grow, but you gradually separate yourself from the people around you. A personal brand does not suit everyone. It all depends on what your aims are, what the business is that you're trying to grow, and whether a personal brand suits you. Keeping your promises is essential in building trust, but also essential in providing self-accountability. If people can rely on you, then you add points to your credibility. BEST MOMENTS 'Every time you take a bolder step forward, you're choosing to separate yourself from the pack' 'Some things connect with me because it's a message I need to hear at that time' 'Do what you say you're going to do, when you're going to do it, without exception' 'The lowest level of valuation is implementation' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Are you ready to create your high-value exit?  Apply to work with us today at https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment  Mark Drager - https://www.markdrager.com ABOUT THE HOST   Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Pitching is about telling a story, and every story needs its dramatic moments, so work them out beforehand Remember that the pitch is about the investor, not a chance to talk about yourself at length. Think about your audience and research them in advance. You can't always count on the time you'll be given, so make different size versions of your pitch. prepare a short version, a long version and a medium version, so that you can maximise the impact you have with the time you're given.

If you follow these opportunities then they can often lead into something that unlocks your true potential. As entrepreneurs, we follow a different path to the "collective" - we strike out on our own and make a better future for ourselves. This is how legacy begins. If we surround ourselves with aspirational people, then it drives us to do better - to reach higher. The earlier we get this inspiration, the higher we can climb. Never be afraid to break a promise if the circumstances change. Promises we make to others in our less experienced years can often leave us broken in the present. It's okay to change the game if it'll make life better for us.

Nick delivers an impactful message this week, guiding you through the three crucial roles that every business needs in order to scale effectively and achieve robust success.

A human resources leader is essential. Even if you're the CEO, you can't be responsible for building out an amazing team. You can set the tone and offer guidelines, but your HR leader on the ground will be the one who gets it done. Having a CFO who can make sense of your numbers and lay out that financial roadmap, will make your business not just robust, but far more sellable when the time comes.

He founded Mindvalley in 2003 with the goal of bringing together the world’s top educators under one platform, to usher in a new era for humanity that is more empowered, connected, and collaborative than the status quo. Vishen joins Nick today to talk about his incredible goal of aiming to reach a billion people worldwide, so as to further the collective consciousness of the human species, as well as a surprising revelation about his opinions on meditation, and how it can be better used to change people's lives. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  When we set ourselves goals, we need to make sure that the methods we use to reach them are appropriate. Often, we use meditation in the wrong way. We use it to solve the wrong kinds of problems, meaning that it is inefficient. Meditation comes in many forms, but the one most widely adopted by the west is the form by where we clear our minds and spend long periods of time in silence. However, there are better, more efficient forms out there. Compassion may be seen as a "fluffy" in the world of business. But it's only seen that way by entrepreneurs with outdated models of business. Financial success can be attained through being driven. But there is a lack of sustainability in this pursuit. Being too driven can lead to burnout, or even a reversal of one's fortunes. BEST MOMENTS 'What we've built as a platform is essential to entrepreneurs' 'The best forms of meditation are active meditation approaches' 'We use a specific compassion protocol that in two minutes, activates compassion as a muscle within you' 'You have to find a balance between output and rejuvenation' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Are you ready to create your high-value exit?  Apply to work with us today at https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment  Vishen Lakhiani - https://www.vishen.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

The Biggest Mistakes I've Made In Business

Just because we gain more experience over time in business, doesn't necessarily mean that we stop making mistakes. In this candid episode, Nick opens up about the errors he's made, the lessons he's learned from each one, and the ways in which you can avoid the same setbacks. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS The more polarising you are, the better. If you're existing solely in the "grey area" then you're not standing out to anyone. When you set goals that are harder to achieve than you believe - a moonshot - then even if you only get 70% of the way there, you'll still have achieved excellence. If you're not scaling or growing quickly right now, you may need to ask yourself if you have strong enough partnerships in place to allow you to achieve your goals. Cash reserves are wise to have, but you also need to make sure you're investing in growth. If you don't, then you risk breaking the growth cycle. BEST MOMENTS 'It doesn't matter what stage of business you're at, you can still repeat patterns' 'What would happen if you elevated your thinking?'

Learnings From Funnel Hacking Live 2022

In this very special episode, Nick presents directly from Funnel Hacking Live 2022 with associate Rob Williams, to discuss the most impactful lessons they have accumulated from this incredible event.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  Marketing and advertising used to have to rely on precise targeting at the correct time. Direct response marketing required an action to be taken, and many think this art has gone away - but it hasn't. Marketing is initially about gaining views, then engaging and eliciting an emotional response in order to gain action, and then on to conversion. Effective branding leads to the initiation of a tribe - a community - who become believers in your message. Establishing this is the key to longevity and passive marketing on your part. There are two types of individuals - the drifters and the driven. When you are faced with issues, the drifters will give in, but the driven will see it through to the end.

We just need to be more aware of when they show up at the wrong time. Meditation has become ubiquitously known as something "everyone should do", but it might not necessarily be right for you. You have to find out what the right things are for yourself. Once we begin to work on our inner selves, that's when the breakthroughs happen. Our creativity begins to ignite and accelerate. People are addicted to work and don't realise it. This means they're on the verge of burning out, and vacationing can't solve that.

10 Lessons From A Billion Dollar Exit

What does it take to create a billion dollar exit? Strategy and timing are essential. But having worked through these scenarios, Nick is here this week to share 10 vital lessons from the billion dollar exits he's personally worked on. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Achieving a ten-figure exit is a truly special event, but there's a huge difference between a billion-dollar valuation and a billion-dollar exit. Other than ego or status, you don't need to get near the billion dollar figure in order to truly change your life. A billion dollar exit revolves around solving billion dollar problems. These are the huge issues that prove truly life-changing. When someone buys a business for a great amount, they're not buying the value today, but what it'll be worth in the future. BEST MOMENTS 'Don't think that you have to create one of these things in order to have a great life' 'What is that life-changing number?'

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Helping others to learn how to raise money helps them to change their lives for the better. Philanthropy isn't just about quick wins - it's about passing on positivity to effect change. There isn't a right or wrong way to get in front of the right investors. Networking meetings are effective, and by definition, everyone attending is always looking to either invest or help investments be made. Never be too eager to pitch your idea too early. Use the power of patience. If you follow the process and tease out the conversation, then money will be the result. As you go through the process, remember that there are different forms of capital that people can bring to table - from financial to intellectual. BEST MOMENTS 'If I can be the catalyst in helping others to raise money, then I can change lives' 'Nobody's going to invest in you until they trust you' 'You can't pitch an idea on the first or second call' 'Someone in the world is waking up with the resources that you need' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      Brad Blazar - https://www.bradblazar.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

This requires a full understanding of yourself and what lights you up. The search for self-fulfilment isn't always a clear one. Sometimes we are guided by the fact that answers are out there somewhere. Consistency is very powerful. We have to take a look at our own identity, however we define ourselves. You need to look at the life you're leading and decide for yourself if you're happy or not. If there's something dragging you down, it might be time to re-evaluate some areas. BEST MOMENTS 'You can only scale a business to the level of your identity' 'I didn't have all the answers.

His "superpower" is asking the right questions while being a solution oriented outside-of-the-box thinker and finding revenue opportunities that most people miss. Dave joins Nick today to deliver an astounding masterclass on establishing operational precision - the setting up of systems and processes that allow your business to grow organically, and scale to hitherto undreamed of size.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS No matter what your circumstances, there is always someone worse off than you. Each day you're alive is a chance to show gratitude for the blessings in your life. Sometimes, we spend so long looking for the scale opportunities internally, spending time and resources on it, but fail to recognise that external acquisitions can provide almost instant scale opportunities. Many start to scale but then give up, because they cannot seem to find the right deals to provide growth, or believe that they must use their own money to close the deals. Using other people's money, or creative strategies to acquire, are always on the table. There are many jobs and industries that are completely recession-proof. People will always require certain services, and these are the acquisitions that provide bulletproof investment opportunities. BEST MOMENTS 'Gratitude transformed my life. Today is the best day of my life' 'You have to focus on what you do have' 'Look to see what's out there!'

The minimum amount of time spent on exit planning should be at least three to five years. Always discuss transitions from business with the people who matter the most to you. Your plans should always be shared with those closest to you. An advisory team should at least include an attorney, wealth and financial advisor, business consultant, your spouse or partner, an accountant, and anyone else who truly matters to you. You can increase the value of a business, to drive up the intangible value of the assets. You can demonstrate this value every 90 days. BEST MOMENTS 'You want to leave a legacy.

Taylor helps thousands create a positive impact in the world through online life coaching. But Lewis' story hasn't been an easy one.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS In our formative years, we assume identities based upon the attitudes and respect we are shown by others. This can have far reach effects upon the way we live and develop. Emotional intelligence is not officially taught, and yet it is one of the most important and formative traits in life. Men, especially, are simply ushered towards a stereotypical, societal shape of what life should look like. When they do not conform, the results can be devastating. Finding your moral compass is about battling internally with yourself, studying the results of these battles, and fighting harder and more fiercely the next time. Empowering yourself is about honing the art of giving power to those empowering thoughts. Eventually, they will win out against the more destructive tendencies. BEST MOMENTS  'When you get labelled that isn't good.

5 Things You Need To Scale From 7 to 8 Figures

For those of you who have hit the 7 figure growth target, Nick is here this week to share the five things you need to know in order to reach that elusive 8 figures in growth. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Hitting 8 figures in revenue opens up a whole new world of opportunities. It makes businesses easier to sell, and attracts a certain level of interest. Only 20% of businesses doing under 10 million in revenue actually sell when the time comes. This means 8 out of 10 do not sell. Predictability of revenue is vital. You need a machine driving leads and conversion. Something that offers value to your client or customer in terms of a conversation.

When you are presented with a problem, instead of diving straight in, always take time to reflect upon the best way of tackling it.

How To Achieve Freedom Without Selling Your Business

Many see the exit from their businesses as the chance to achieve freedom, but as Nick explains in this week's edition of wisdom, there may be another way to get there without selling your business... Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  Kiyosaki's Quadrant Of Freedom involves: E - Employee, S - Self-Employed, B - Business Owner, I - Investor. If you are working in a business, the first thing you can do change your trajectory is to become a manager. This gives you a slightly increased freedom. The next rung to climb is to an executive position. The number one reason for a business failing to sell, is that the seller gets cold feet right at the very end. If you have planned in advance, and have had the exit in mind the whole time, then it removes the emotional connection at this crucial time. BEST MOMENTS 'Freedom can be achieved in different ways' 'You can start to see where that first tranche of freedom can become available to you' 'When you become a business owner, you become the owner of a system' 'The way to become a great CEO is to make sure you're not doing any of the work' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Not just do they encroach on our decision-making abilities when we need them, they also affect our literal physicality. Life is a mirror when it comes to emotional response. In business, when it comes to teams, they will feel a mirror of the way that you feel, and vice versa. Often, those in positions of success and power are under far more pressure than those whose businesses may be failing. It is success that grows pressure and chaos in life. The great ones are those who recognise this and handle it. If you do not find the root cause of trauma and deal with it there, then you are doomed to repeat the fallout again and again in life.

It should also provide clarity about their belief system and mindset.

When it comes to coaching, it's not so much about providing answers that didn't exist before. It's about encouraging the answers to come from within, where they have always been. Exits are not centred around time, but centred around the result. Brokers and banks are only there for the actual exit. They want the deal done, more than they want the best deal for you.

Decision Fatigue

We can definitely become tired from having to make too many decisions. In fact, the more choices we have to make can negatively affect our energy reserves.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Decision fatigue is compounded by the fact that we often have too many things going on. If we have too much choice, it can leave us paralysed and then impact our ability to make decisions. Our brains only have a limited store of energy. When we make decisions, this energy depletes, thereby negatively impacting our ability to effectively operate. Plan daily decisions the night before. This means that when you wake up refresh in the morning, half of your brain's work is done ahead of time. Stop making decisions, and think in terms of commitments. Rather than hoping you'll make the right choice each day, simply commit to the larger aims.

Nothing is more precious than knowledge. It's far better to arrive at the end of your life with no regrets, having achieved everything you wanted to, than to spend time worrying about what others might think of us.

Whatever you go through, whatever you experience, whatever obstacles you face in life, they all provide learnings and gifts.

Businesses That Thrive During Recessions

Recession is on every business owner's mind right now, and fortifying yourself against the expected downturn in the economies is a wise step. With this in mind, Nic takes this opportunity to talk about the types of businesses that thrive during these periods, and the elements you can adapt to your own business in order to make sure that your organisation thrives also. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS We must always use a positive outlook for our business, as this encourages growth. But we must also focus upon contingencies. We need to fortify. The best practice is always to ensure that we have at least six months' worth of operating costs in reserve for our business. We cannot affect the larger economic picture, which is largely influenced by the media and the public's reaction to circumstances. All we can control is our own business response. Industries that did well in the Great Recession of 2008 include discount retailers, healthcare, food and restaurants, freight and logistics, and the do-it-yourself markets.

The best way to overcome this is by not punishing ourselves and keeping our eyes on the prize. Everyone's route to success is different. Some have a rigid path planned, while others take a "loose guard rails" approach. You need to find what works for you. Accountability is a great inspirer and motivator. If we have to explain our lack of movement to others, it creates disappointment. Avoiding this by fulfilling our goals is key. The way to not just raise your game, but sustain your position at the top, is to consistently blend and marry humility with confidence, and focus on the fundamentals. BEST MOMENTS 'You need to recruit an inner circle of people who are going to hold you accountable foe the things you said you were going to do' 'We don't like to disappoint people who mean something to us' 'The key to not only performance and success, but happiness and fulfilment, is to do more of what works - do less of what doesn't' 'There is tremendous overlap between raising your game and sustaining your game' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      Alan Stein Jr - https://alansteinjr.com ABOUT THE HOST   Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

There is a marked difference between growth and scale, and yet why do so many confuse the two?

Should You Focus On Income Or Value?

What's more important for your business to be focussing on - generating more income, or increasing value? As Nick explains in today's show, income and value are NOT the same thing, why both matter so much, and how both can drive growth in differing ways... Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Many think of value as the profitability of the business. The reality is that value isn't as simple as that. Some values are generated by formulas, and others are in the eye of the beholder. Businesses can make money, but not be as valuable as we believe. This can be caused through too much reliance on the owner's presence, too much reliance on a handful of customers, no IP protection and other factors. Focus on building a high value business. If you do this, you'll generate income for today as well as build a business that is exitable and attractive in the future. Once you've assessed value, make sure you protect it by ensuring the best foundations are in place. This allows you to build.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Sports participants and athletes understand the value of flow, and how by tapping into an almost subconscious level of engagement, we can achieve incredible results. Nature is the ultimate meta-frame on judging whether something is true or not. The world around us abides by a set of chaotic natural laws that keep us all thriving. Flow creates growth, and drives momentum. This leads to enjoyment, which should be one of the most important metrics we use to determine success in business. Identity should be used as a device and mechanism to help us see and explore what else we are made of and what we can achieve. BEST MOMENTS 'When you're playing in a flow state - in that zone - all of your capabilities get to come out of you' 'One of the pitfalls of ambitious, top-achieving people is the expectation of some sort of outcome' 'Flow can be applied to a human.

How to Become Slightly Happier and Get a Bit More Done (2011), and a new book, Four Thousand Weeks, about making the most of our radically finite lives in a world of impossible demands, relentless distraction and political insanity.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  The world is filled with infinite possibilities, and yet we as creatures are finite. The only way to make the best of our time is to come to the realisation that we are going to miss out on much the world has to offer. Many think that pushing for more gets you further, and that can be meaningful, so long as we temper our ambitions to realise that not every opportunity can be taken. You should make decisions as part of a practice, and see it as something you should get better at. If you're stuck, then look for some decision to make that makes the process irreversible, and make it! Habits we implement for our own self care must be conceptualised as such. If we become too focussed on the practice itself, instead of what we are trying to achieve with it, then we become far too future-focussed, which is detrimental.

Multiple Arbitrage

Nick talks about one of the most important core principles in private equity, one that helps to create high-value businesses - multiple arbitrage. As Nick explains, if you can fully understand the principle, it can lead to a life-changing exit, and will endow you with the experience and knowledge to hold effective conversations with potential business purchasers.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  Multiple arbitrage is the increasing of value of a company between buying and selling, absent of any operational improvements. Bolting on businesses to a smaller concern can help to grow size. As it increases in size and value, you create a multiple arbitrage strategy. If a bigger company has a higher value, and you are bringing a smaller value company in, the value of the bigger company instantly increases.

One of the biggest myths about entrepreneurship is that people are self-made. No one gets there alone. It requires the support and skills of an amazing team. Teams work best when they learn to constantly rely on and trust each other. It's not enough to simply inject enthusiasm infrequently. Rewards should always be based on the values of the person being rewarded. If you don't get this right, it can demotivate rather than motivate.

Marketing To High And Low Emotional States

Marketing remains at the heart of almost all strategic scale-up plans, but many don't consider the emotional states involved during campaigns. In this episode, Nick talks about the value of recognising the high and low emotional states that connect people in a greater way to your marketing goals. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS If you have a business already and are looking to scale via acquisitions, you must have the foundations in place, and you must make sure they are strong. Many see marketing as a simple message that will stop people in their tracks. The unfortunate truth is that this doesn't work. People have different emotional states depending on where they are in their journey. The people you most want to appeal to will be in a high or low emotional state, and the message you put out will dictate how effective it is.

Naveen Jain On The Magic Of Thinking Bigger

An intensely curious entrepreneur and philanthropist, Naveen Jain focuses on ideas that push humanity forward.

With an audacious vision, he knows no limits. His moonshot vision breaks through barriers; his magnetic personality inspires the impossible. Naveen joins Nick to talk about the power of not just setting hard-to-reach goals, but goals that some would consider unattainable, how applying 10x to your thinking can supply you with incredible results, and the true measure of success. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS When it comes to the goals we set, always aim higher than you need to. By aiming even higher, we achieve even more. The results will astound you. The true measure of success is not how much money we make, or the figures we accrue. It is in the shape of the world after we have left our legacy. Success comes from changing lives for the better. We all have within us a core belief that we are willing to go that extra distance for. Purpose comes from identifying that belief and working hard to make it happen. The secret to building a multi-billion dollar company is in finding a solution that positively impacts the lives of people around the world. If people want your solution then they will come to you.

Even though people might be at the top of their game, it doesn't always mean that they are happy with the challenges and obstacles they face each day. Mediocrity is the enemy of growth.

When we don't do things well, it creates anxiety around these tasks because it reminds us of our weaknesses. Sometimes the difference between a dream slipping through our fingers, and coming true, can be infinitesimal. Your dreams are closer than you think, you just need to push a little bit more.

The Perfect Exit

Nick talks about that most crucial element of business ownership - the exit - and most notably how to ensure that you can maximise this vital wealth event, and achieve an exit that provides freedom and security. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Life-changing exits are not necessarily about just money. They are about the freedom it endows you with, and what it allows you to afterwards. Business owners generally have 75-80 percent of their net worth tied up in their business. This means that their business exit is the single biggest transaction or wealth event of their lives. Leveraging yourself out of the business is crucial. The business must be able to run separately from you. This is vital for scale. You must start with your endgame in mind, using an endgame assessment. Gain a valuation of the business as it stands presently, then work out how much you want to sell for in the future. BEST MOMENTS  'For me, that's the pinnacle of what we do' 'If I can provide life-changing exits for them, then they can make life-changing impact on others' 'Only twenty percent of all businesses in the world will actually sell' 'A lot of businesses don't realise that scale matters' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

True innovation comes from proving that an idea germinated at a table surrounded by thinkers can precipitate change in an industry. Partnering with those who wish to take the brand to the next level can often provide hitherto unexplored levels of innovation and growth. Always look for the positives in what others can bring.

Do No-Money-Down Deals Really Exist?

Many assume that in order to acquire profitable concerns, that a strategy known as "No Money Down" can be used. But as Nick explains in this episode, there's a difference between "No Money Down" and "Other People's Money" Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS No-Money-Down is a term that originated mainly in the property space, denoting a scenario in which investors were able to begin their journey without the need for money of their own. Other People's Money is different from No-Money Down, as it explicitly means that other people's investment capital is being leveraged. When people invest their lives into a business, then they have done so with the intention of gaining some kind of reward in the long run. If you are fixating on a No Money Down deal, then you must be prepared for potential letdowns. Remember that it's better to spend a little and get something that works, than take s chance on something that might be fundamentally broken.

Clint Emerson is a retired Navy SEAL, survival skills expert, and the New York Times bestselling author of 'The Rugged Life - The Modern Guide To Self-Reliance'.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Current world events have gone to prove that we can never take life for granted. Events can take a drastic turn in the space of a day, so it pays us to be prepared. The key to making sure we aren't taken out by unforeseen circumstances is in ensuring that our key enablers are kept safe and guarded. Complacency has become far too commonplace, and this is largely due to the rise in use of technology, that makes life comfortable, but also dulls our senses. We may feel that time and money spent on being prepared is wasted, but the costs of repair far outweigh the small investments made in preparedness.

Identity

In this highly insightful episode, Nick talks about identity, and why it is such a crucial concept to understand completely when trying to grow and scale a business.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Mindset, and how you think about things, how you identify with yourself, how you show up - all of it is business itself. You can't grow and scale a business if there are chinks in the veneer - gaps in who we are, who we think we are, and who we are becoming. If our businesses are not moving in the direction we want, then the first step is to acknowledge that problem. We must evaluate our current identity, and then identify the identity we wish to embody. It's a case of looking at where you are and where you wish to be. BEST MOMENTS 'What I'm talking about today is who you are becoming as the business leader, the driver of what you are ultimately trying to create' 'You have to first work on yourself and define who you are becoming' 'You create the image of who you are based on your values' 'This is not about trying to pretend you're something that you're not' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Marketing and advertising used to be the same thing, leading to a misunderstanding that still exists to this day. An advertising campaign is not the same as a marketing campaign. The core principle of marketing used to be to make average stuff for average people at scale. What has shifted is that scale is no longer a plus but a minus. The finest way of reaching your customers is to create something sp special that they will run to tell others. This is a dramatic shift in the way we reach people.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Success comes from first finding out about ourselves, and discovering the strengths that reside within us through challenging adversity. Adversity and challenge lights a fire beneath us that allow us to identify the "why" and the purpose that drives us onwards. Those who successfully lead are the ones who show up no matter what. If our purpose is strong enough, nothing can hold us back. Never accept the accepted wisdom from the world at large. Far too many preach that adversity and challenge are there to stop us in our tracks, instead of providing valuable lessons in what we are capable of surmounting. BEST MOMENTS 'You have the strength in you, to battle through adversity' 'They talk about why and purpose, but they forget to talk about the burn' 'Every time he wins he gets hungrier' 'The world tells us to think smaller, to not take massive action' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      Ben Newman - https://bennewman.net/about/ ABOUT THE HOST   Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

How To Scale To 7 Figures

Building a business to scale in order to provide a healthy exit usually means aiming for an 8-figure concern. But in order to get there, you have to have a clear plan for how to first get to the 7 figure mark. This is a period that can prove somewhat tricky... In this episode, Nick talks you through the ways in which you can ensure that your business reaches that 7 figure milestone, in order to ensure that life-changing exit. KEY TAKEAWAYS Six figures of revenue does not necessarily equal six figures of profit. You still have to sensible in terms of what you want the business to be so that you ultimately end up with what you want. Momentum is important and drives the speed of your operations. But without scale, you are merely moving faster without moving forward. Cash flow is vital. This relies on predictability of leads, predictability of sales, and from these two factors you get the predictability of cashflow. Structure matters more than you might think. You should always build your company's structure around the strategy that you want to pursue. BEST MOMENTS  'Building a 6 figure business is still awesome' 'We become entrepreneurs because we don't just want to hustle' 'You want to be in the situation where you have a business that allows you to have an amazing life' 'You've got to have the right pond with the right fish and the right bait' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST   Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

John Bates On Making Your Communication As Mighty As Your Ideas

As business owners, effective communication is paramount in ensuring that our messages are received, translated and implemented. But many find their grand ideas stymied by an inability to better communicate them, leading to frustration and unnecessary challenge. Joining Nick this week is John Bates, founder of Executive Speaking Success, and a man who has helped countless leaders and executives to dynamically improve their business results through his unique communication education and training, based in the fundamental evolutionary biology and neurophysiology of human communication, connection and interaction. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS When we are given opportunities to speak, we should prepare rigorously. We may not always be aware of what can lead from engagements. Treat every opportunity as special. Leadership is a function of great communication, and great leadership is a function of great communication. The reason why formats such as TED work so well is because they understand this, and give their people the chance to reach others through tried and tested means. Structure can have an enormous impact on the way we reach others. The "in media res" technique plants us squarely in the action, and provides a hook that draws people into the rest of the message. There are certain markers that we can provide, which allow another person to realise that a story is being told to them. This affects them on a chemical level and makes them more receptive. BEST MOMENTS 'I call it the "Valley Of Awkwardness"' 'If I started at the beginning, it would have been a very different experience for people' 'That moment deserves preparation and practice' 'Our brains release the same chemical we release when we expect to get a reward' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      Executive Speaking Success - https://executivespeakingsuccess.com ABOUT THE HOST   Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

5 Reasons Why Successful Businesses Fail

Even the most successful business concerns hit bumps in the road, and generally tend to find that larger problems await us further down the road. Some succeed, but some fail, but why? In this episode, Nick talks you through the five main reasons why successful businesses can fail, and how you can avoid the same fate. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS As entrepreneurs and investors, the reward gained from solving a challenge is usually finding that a bigger challenge or problem awaits us on the other side. Sometimes, as we become successful, we stop thinking about the gains we make in terms of relativity. This means we feel as though we are growing significantly slower, even though the gains are still big. When it comes to strategy, we can become far too obsessed with taking action in and of itself, the implementation, that we forget about the strategy. We must never forget to help others in attaining their desired place in their own journey. If someone is not the right fit in your business, it could actually be the best thing for their growth if they break away. BEST MOMENTS 'As you start to build something bigger, the problems and challenges become bigger' 'Remember, that is what you are signing up for' 'The faster we grow, the more difficult it can become to top our previous successes' 'You've got to have strong systems and processes' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Mollie West Duffy On How To Be Okay When Things Are Not Okay

Mollie West Duffy is an organisational designer at IDEO New York and she teaches an undergraduate Design Thinking class at Stanford's New York City Design School. She has helped companies and startups such as Casper develop good workplace culture, and has authored the best-selling book, 'No Hard Feelings'. Mollie joins Nick today to discuss her new book 'Big Feelings: How To Feel Okay When Things Are Not Okay', as well as how to deal with uncertainty, despair, anger, envy, and the other topics that might be holding us back when it comes to achieving more. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS We cannot hope to surmount the problems that hold us back from greatness unless we first admit they exist, and then allow others to support our overcoming them. In the wake of the pandemic, the need for a more open discussion upon the ills of emotional imbalance, especially in the workplace, are far more relevant. Success is often due to our energy, talent and commitment to a task, rather than some desire to be the best, or to provide perfection. Fear can be easier to deal with because its roots usually lie in something specific. However, anxiety is non-specific and therefore can be tricky to be deal with. Therefore, by channelling our broader anxieties into something more specific can be helpful in our learning to deal with them. BEST MOMENTS 'When we keep everything bottled up, we suffer in silence' 'We want our leaders to be emotional, but not too emotional' 'The reason we allow ourselves to think this way is that we believe that it serves us' 'Fear is when we believe that something specific will happen' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      Mollie West Duffy - https://molliewestduffy.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Business Buying In 2022

Nick talks all things business buying and acquisitions in 2022 - a state of the industry update - so as to help refine the information out there, and debunk some of the rhetoric available, ensuring that you have the most up to date and accurate data to hand in order to realise your buying and acquisitions aims for the year ahead.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Main street are businesses beneath the realm of £2m in revenue. The lower middle market range from the £2m mark all the way up to £50m. The state of the world and its many economies, as well as upheavals and political events, all have a marked effect on business buying. Going through the traditional routes of buying through brokers and agents means that a lot of people will be doing the same thing leading to high levels of competition. This means your ability to negotiate will be hampered. 54% of transactions are closing successfully. This is an extraordinarily high rate of acquisition success, meaning there is economic confidence around scale. BEST MOMENTS  'Markets change all the time' 'I still think it is a buyer's market, but it's a buyer's market if you are prepared to look off-market' 'Over the next decade you are going to get the baby boomers coming through' 'Go out there and do partnerships, joint ventures and acquisitions' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

How important is branding to you? How much in the way of time and resources are you spending on making sure that your brand represents you and your company accurately, and in a powerful way? In this episode, Nick is joined by Jason Harris, the co-founder & CEO of award-winning creative advertising agency Mekanism, co-founder of the Creative Alliance and author of national bestseller, The Soulful Art of Persuasion, to talk about the empowering ways in which you can harness the powers of science and soul in order to accelerate your marketing ambitions.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Brands allow us to be a part of a hero's journey. When we see and respect sports personalities, associating ourselves with their brands allows us to feel like we are part of their story. As business owners we must sometimes come to terms with the fact that the ideas we have aren't always plausible. This can require input from an outside perspective. Companies aren't what you buy, and they're not about what they sell. Companies today are more about the idea that the consumer buys into. Around 82% of consumers don't care if a brand disappears, as they can easily find others that fill their need. Around 53% of consumers will buy products from a brand that does something positive. BEST MOMENTS 'I wouldn't just watch the ad and have it wash over me. I'd really dissect it' 'When you're not thinking about jobs, futures or careers, then what are those instant passion points you have?'

Be brave enough to take a risk, but also be brave enough to be accountable for it. Examine you customer base and ascertain whereabouts within that base your most value is being generated in terms of revenue and profit. Always follow up on your leads. Far too many people spend huge amounts on marketing, but only look at the top level results they gain. Look for ways in which you can bundle more value and add to your existing product or service. By making small, incremental value-adds, you increase the value of your whole offering. BEST MOMENTS 'You need to be thinking organically' 'You have to have a process for follow up!'

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Discipline creates systems that allow for order. We cannot hope to achieve success if we live alongside chaos. Discipline guides you to your best life. If we confront the truth at our core - the essence - then what truly matters in life are the relationships we build and foster. Ego is often driven by scarcity. We are led to believe that only so many people can win in life. When we shift our abundance mindset, this perspective changes. Many of us judge success by the result of an action. In reality, we should consider the input that got us there. Look at all contributing factors, for that is where the true value lies. BEST MOMENTS 'Discipline guides you to your best life' 'Being able to do what you want when you want is the recipe against success' 'It's developing the conversations - having a lot more of them, and helping to learn and grow along the way' 'I'm much more of a leader that focusses on principles, values and actions' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      Scott Danner - https://scottdanner.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

The Three Levels Of Value

Nick talks about the ways in which we can understand our client's needs, and better serve them, by recognising the three levels of value, and deploying them in the right order. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Decisions are sometimes made by the unconscious, but in order to process them fully, we must allow them to break through the conscious mind, which always seeks to protect and shield us. The first level of value is to help your customer to fully understand their challenge. Many feel the challenges they face, but fail to effectively identify its implications. Once the problem is understood, we must supply the quickest path or method towards eradicating that issue. The last level of value is demonstrating how your unique offering actually removes or eradicates the problem being faced. BEST MOMENTS 'It's about how you can start to influence someone by understanding their highest need from their biggest challenge' 'The subconscious mind is where a lot of our decisions are made' 'A lot of people know they have a challenge, but don't know what it is' 'If you can show that you understand their problem better than they understand their problem, then the next level of value becomes super easy' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Azhelle Wade On Why Following Your Passion Isn't Overrated

Over the past 10 years, Azhelle Wade has worked for companies like Toys R Us, Party City, and Madame Alexander, climbing up and across the ladder in the toy world. After building and mentoring a diverse and talented team toward success, she had the vision to do the same with newcomers to the toy industry. Today Azhelle is known industry-wide as The Toy Coach. Azhelle is proof that there is always a career path to be had that is aligned with your true passions in life, and in this episode, she talks to Nick about why these aims aren't overrated, how to turn your ideas into multi-million dollar brands, and how to keep fun at the centre of what you do. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  We often assume that success comes from iterating on the triumphs of others. But often, we can achieve staggering success through looking for the new ways to break ground. One of the more interesting effects of the pandemic has been the sudden uptick in playtime. With less travel happening, people are focussing on how to enrich their lives in playful ways closer to home. We often have our dreams derailed by those who cannot see the potential in them. Building a business based on what you love allows you to assert positivity into not just your ambitions, but the lives of others. The truth of the matter is that success doesn't become easier the more you have. The higher you reach, the more difficult the issues that you face.

Accelerated Change

Nick talks about why scale matters now more than ever - in terms of business and life - and how in order to shield ourselves from the external factors, and achieve accelerated change, we need to ensure that we embrace a growth mindset. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  When it comes to life, there are things we can control, and things we can't. The key is not to spend too much time focussing on the things we can't control. The pace of accelerated change is putting more emphasis on scale itself. This is clearly evident through the proliferation of partnerships and collaboration. Be more strategic, think bigger and don't be distracted by all that is going on. Embrace digital, apply across your business, and subsequently embrace the world as your marketplace. Niche down on who you are endeavouring to appeal to. Look at the target groups that mean the most to what you do. Consider not just those people but their customers. BEST MOMENTS 'There are certain things that you can affect and there are certain things that you can't' 'If you're neutral or grey then you don't mean a lot to anybody' 'Scale is a strategy that mitigates risk as much as it brings the benefits of more resources' 'Niche down on who you really serve.

He has been named a Top 8 Podcaster to follow by INC Magazine and chosen as an ‘Icon of Influence’ in the new media space. He now helps individuals unlock their passions and live life fully. Justin joins Nick this week to talk about the ways in which you can take control of your own destiny and create your own happiness in business and life, the importance of constant growth, and how by serving others we raise the quality of life for other people and ourselves. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Forgiveness is a quality we must instil within ourselves. It's okay to slip up sometimes, so long as we practice self care in the aftermath. We are in a constant state of growth, development and flux. If we accept this and allow ourselves to grow at all times, then enlightenment follows, both spiritually and emotionally. We are all infinite beings. Many believe that when we pass on we leave the world, but the footprint and legacy we leave behind allows us to live on. When we live to serve others, it creates an intense sense of fulfilment, and can serve to show us that life is enhanced endlessly by raising others up. BEST MOMENTS 'My goal within spirituality is to make sure the energy around me is flowing with me instead of against me' 'I can literally manifest any life that I want' 'Instead of being a cynical human being, I'm very much more positive with a positive outlook on life' 'You have to do this from a place of wanting to give and not wanting anything in return' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      Growth Now - https://growthnowmovement.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

How To Build A High-Impact Advisory Board

Nick discusses advisory boards, and the governance you may need in order to scale your business. Many see the growth of a business as a gradual shift in your identity, and in this episode, Nick explains why the identity of the business itself must also grow, including at the highest level. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Businesses that have some level of advisory governance, tend to work out to be more valuable in the long run. Having an external perspective can also help with execution and strategy. An advisory board is a group of subject matter experts who provide the company leadership team with a new perspective upon factors such as innovation, risk management, growth, profitability and other areas. When you bring in someone to sit on a board, you must always compensate. This can take the form of perks such as travel or accommodation and dining, but can also stretch to equity shares. Advisory boards are there to not just offer guidance on the areas you do know about, but to offer support and mentorship in the areas in which you are unfamiliar. BEST MOMENTS 'You can only scale a business to the level of your identity' 'If you're going to pay for expertise and expect a result, it is an investment' 'You need people who've been there and done it. Who've got the t-shirt' 'It's about understanding the value of having that support network around you' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

People, Processes and Automation

Nick discusses a crucial part of scaling up - the art of creating solid scaleable foundations through people acquisition, implementing processes, and achieving a state of autonomy. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS People, processes and automation are often referred to as "The Golden Triangle". They are the fundamental underpinnings that are considered to be essential to all businesses. Start with the end in mind and be clear about what you're building towards. What is your freedom number or "get rich once" number? Next we have to formulate a plan to work towards it. We must optimise foundations. This is where people, processes and automation sit. It's also where structuring capital and investment directions sit. Scale fast and build value. This is the phase by where organic growth takes places, but we supplement by adding external factors such as partnerships, joint ventures - the things that build value quickly. BEST MOMENTS 'You need to start with vision, mission and what the endgame is' 'It's owning the process.

Dean Karnazes On Dedicating Your Life To Achieving The Impossible

Named by TIME magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World,” Dean Karnazes has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits. Among his many accomplishments, he has run 50 marathons, in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days. He’s run across Death Valley in the middle of summer, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole. Dean joins Nick to talk about his incredible running career, the ways in which he has conditioned his mind and body to adapt to the toughest challenges, and how by dedicating yourself to a pursuit completely, you too can achieve the impossible. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS As we grow older, we start to develop different rhythms when it comes to energy levels. This can largely be due to our intake, and require constant adjustment. These days, many treat running as some kind of objective-based activity in which a certain metric has to be attained. But running, or any physical activity, should also be fun. Remember to use activity as an enjoyable form of play. Our bodies are machines. If we view ourselves as limitless in potential, and work to achieve greatness, then the way we feed ourselves and treat ourselves, as animals, can shape the potential we achieve. When you have harmonious inner personal relationships with those around us, your performance is better. Everything is better. If you have discord, it disrupts your performance. BEST MOMENTS 'People quantify every run. For me, the only purpose for a lot of my runs is just to run' 'I view myself through the lens of trying to be the best animal that I can be' 'I like to say that if I can't pick it from a tree, dig it from the earth, or catch it with my hands, then I don't eat it' 'Look to optimise your relationships.

How Much Is Your Business Worth?

One of the most common questions business owners wish to know is exactly how much their business is worth. In this week's episode, Nick talks about the ways in which you can determine your own magic number. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  Sometimes it takes an outside perspective in order to ascertain your business valuation, as we can be so wrapped up in our offering, that our own vision is skewed. You as the seller, may have an expectation when it comes to a sale. If you've created something that's difficult to replicate, and it appeals directly to your potential buyer, they're likely to see a lot more value in it. You can base your valuation on revenue - how much the business generates through sales. Calculate this and look at how much a typical business in your industry may be worth based on a certain level of annual sales. Never base your business's valuation simply on number crunching or formulas. Consider the value of your business based on factors such as geographical location, its potential strategic value, quality of customer base, and alignment of systems and processes. BEST MOMENTS 'People have such a broad perspective about what they're creating' 'Valuation is cryptic and ambiguous' 'The business is probably worth more than its net assets' 'You need to go beyond all of these financial formulas' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Robin Sharma is a Canadian writer, best known for his The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari book series. Sharma worked as a litigation lawyer until age 25, when he self-published MegaLiving, a book on stress management and spirituality.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Our daily behaviours reflect our deepest beliefs, and we all have a psychological story. It is this story that determines the things we do each day. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and are often not lionised as much as those who shape the world. If we install the right philosophies and seek to improve the world in small ways, then we can count ourselves as heroes. We often mistake wealth for having large reserves of money in the bank. What the past years have taught us is that wealth comes in many forms, including connections, savouring life and self-respect. Fear creates cortisol, which contracts our perceptions. In the world of today, many live their lives in fear. This means we can miss opportunities through the reduction of our perceptiveness.

Honesty and transparency in communication is vital. There's no point in sugar-coating a message when it requires clarity of communication.

This website grew to over 300,000 registered members, and was later sold for millions, in only 5 years. Amazingly… it was just his part-time business!

Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS When we travel through the business journey on the rails of the corporate model, we often aim for promotion or salary increases, not realising until we achieve them that these things rarely bring fulfilment. When we recognise our talents, and learn to assess them using our own autonomy instead of waiting for others to validate us, we create the kind of energy we need to start reaching higher and moving faster. Determining to become a success is about asking ourselves the question - am I where I want to be? And if the answer is no, then it's about finding the discipline to do more. Consider the legacy that we would leave behind if we were to depart immediately. Is the story that others would tell about you, the one you would write? If the answer is no, then it's time to start rewriting that story in your own words. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm a teacher. I love to learn, but I love to teach' 'I can visualise things, I can create the action plan, and go and execute that to get results!' 'I was really honest with myself.

Having an amazing product or service isn't everything when you come to the market. It matters, but what also drives growth and take-up, is the message. Messaging should aim to satisfy a key outcome for your client base, but should also communicate that the only way this outcome is possible is through your offering. One of the most important questions that should be answered by your messaging is why should action be taken now? We must communicate that if action isn't taken, then the world will change quickly BEST MOMENTS  'I like to get into the detail' 'If you can't communicate your message in an impactful way, then it won't matter how good that product or service is' 'Write the cover line and then find the story' 'A very simple phrase, articulated brilliantly, has the power to change everything' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Self development must evolve over time, because we grow and age over time. Never assume that what worked for us in our youth will work for us now. Most people are in "survival mode" and they seem to be okay with it, but if we are diligent enough, and are tested frequently, we can mitigate and sometimes head off health problems before they have to become manageable. Mindfulness and mental health is equally as important as physical health. We must take time to recharge and reset.

How To Exit Rich

This week, Nick is in training mode, and here to talk about exiting and exit strategies, with a particular focus upon the mechanics behind the process, how to navigate your own path to freedom, and why every business should be built to sell. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS During the start-up and scale-up process, many business owners discover that the freedom they were hoping for in running their own business, is scarce. The true freedom comes from the exit. There are two types of exit. You can exit but choose not to be involved in the day-to-day running of the operations themselves. The second exit is the "life changing exit", and involves selling completely. Never assume that the world will look the same in the future as it does right now. Circumstances can change in a moment, so instead of looking to the very long term, try to shorten your plans. Plan your exit from the beginning. It doesn't have to be your sole focus, but it helps to have a North Star that you can always be working towards. BEST MOMENTS 'The freedom really comes from the exit' 'These are all external things that you need to evaluate' 'The pace of change right now is so full on' 'You need or require a change in your thinking - your mind-set' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Our goals in life are always a matter of answering a single questions - whether we are simply interested in achieving them, or committed to achieving them. When we are truly committed to achieving greatness, then we will upgrade our identity, our knowledge, our behaviour, in order to align with that destiny, and therefore achieve it. Choice means not just showing up, but also saying yes to the opportunities that present themselves. Serendipity and happenstance only account for a small part of the journey to success. We are not born with fears, associations or memories. Therefore, limiting beliefs are little more than reinforced neural patterns that went from conscious to sub-conscious. BEST MOMENTS 'If you take care of cause, then effect takes care of itself' 'Our brain is actually a prediction machine that also deletes and distorts anything that doesn't match with the current map of our reality' 'If you are committed, then you will upgrade your identity to match this destiny' 'I believe in the power of choice' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      John Assaraf - https://johnassaraf.com ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Are You Giving Up?

With the beginning of the year, we generally tend to make promises to ourselves. But as time passes on, sometimes we lose our grip on these assurances, and veer towards giving up. In this episode, Nick talks about the different strategies he has used in his own journey, that have helped him to break the cycle of giving up. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS We set out to achieve things, and if we go through life making promises but failing to execute them, it can have a huge impact on who we are. Science states that failure doesn't come from making the wrong choice in your goals. It comes from failure in the path of executing those goals. Mindset, and mental toughness, are what separate the great entrepreneurs of the world from the average ones. They are the ones who embrace resilience and grit. Limiting your priorities is essential. Between 3 to 5 is a good number. Then make sure you execute those priorities first before you do anything else. BEST MOMENTS 'It's a really important cycle to break' 'What happens if this is the year that you absolutely stick to everything you said you'd do?' 'It's not about changing your goals. It's about changing the way you go after them' 'I'm very focussed on the things that are going to move business forward and my life forward' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ... How To Fix It Fast! - https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/free-guide1 Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment      ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Howard Behar On Leadership Lessons From Starbucks

Howard Behar's career in business spans over 50 years, all in consumer oriented businesses, and most recently as a speaker, advisor, mentor, and bestselling author. He is also the former president of Starbucks - one of the world's largest and most popular brands. Howard joins Nick to discuss the leadership lessons he learned while acting as the overseer to such an empire, including why culture matters so much, and why people should be kept at the heart of things. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  The most successful business enterprises are the ones who remember that while products are essential, the people who come for them, and the problems that it solves for them, should always be at the heart of matters. Every organisation has its own culture. They usually arise naturally. The question we must ask is if the natural culture there is the one we strive for. If it isn't, then we must change it from the top down. The great leaders are the ones who like to challenged, and want to be held accountable. If our people are doing either, then we as leaders are doing the right thing. Nothing in life happens without persistence. In the rivers of life there are rocks, and we strike them below the water line, but the most important thing is that we traverse them and keep moving on. BEST MOMENTS 'It wasn't meant to be a brand. It was meant to be human in nature' 'I got right away that it wasn't about the coffee. It was about the people' 'We wanted to be able to walk down the hallway, look everyone in the face, and say "We're in it together"' 'The question to ask yourself is "Is this the culture I want?"'

Doing Deals! How I Personally Structure Acquisitions

This week, Nick shares a very special training session containing details of some of the deals he has personally completed, as well as the ways and means through which he accomplished them. It's a chance to get a real insight into the mind of a true deal maker, and a masterclass in how to structure acquisitions correctly. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  Buying a business is very much like buying a house. When we purchase a house we get a mortgage - therefore using other people's money. Buying a business can be structured in the same way. When valuing a business, take into account any debts that it may owe, the cost of which must be removed from the buying price. Any remaining capital to be paid as part of the purchase can be taken from the profits from the business itself. Wealth is created by selling businesses. It isn't created by running businesses. More billionaires have been created by private equity than from any other industry. There are over 1600 businesses closing in America every single day because there is no succession plan. Owners who retire have no plan for post-retirement, and so many businesses close when the time comes, even though they are profitable. BEST MOMENTS 'You are going to build significant wealth from business acquisitions' 'None of this is your own cash, whatsoever' 'The huge payday is when you sell the business in the future' 'So much better to buy a good profitable business than to try and start one up yourself' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment    ABOUT THE HOST   Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

James Altucher is an American hedge-fund manager, author, podcaster and entrepreneur who has founded or cofounded over 20 companies. He has published 20 books and is a contributor to publications including The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, and The Huffington Post. James joins Nick to talk about the definition of entrepreneurship itself, how technology is impacting the way we think and learn, how mind-set and risk management can help us to make better decisions, and why failure should always be seen as the first step towards achieving success. Find out now if you’re building a high-value, exitable business (even if you have no immediate plans to sell it). You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Entrepreneurship is often defined as a great idea taken to market through careful investing and promotion, but there are many facets to entrepreneurship. Even revamping existing concerns can be defined as such. We only have so much time on this earth, and so it is always best to apply our finite resource of time to pursuits that matter to us, personally, and which bring us the greatest rewards. Investing is a path to wealth, but we have to temper our ambitions with a good deal of risk management. We can't win big without speculation, but always do your best to make the bets as safe as possible. When we fail, we learn. Lessons stick with us if they are gained through failure. Sometimes, the power of these lessons is far greater than if they had come through a win. BEST MOMENTS 'I learned so much more from YouTube videos than I ever did from my teachers in school' 'You have to try a lot of things to know what you love doing' 'You only live once' 'Failure is the pathway to success?

You’ll get an instant PDF report with powerful insights specifically tailored to your business in just 4 minutes. https://highvalueexit.scoreapp.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS  We excel when we aim high. There is no sense in playing it safe in order to score mediocrity. If we push ourselves then we try harder, fly higher, and achieve more. Many people who do extraordinary things are fundamentally flawed in other areas. Nothing pushes us harder to succeed than feeling as though we might fail entirely. Relying on one single channel when it comes to sales and marketing is never wise, especially if we do not own the data or the system. Competitors can always use processes to keep us down or affect sales. Look for ways of centralising your output and owning the data. We lack empathy in our society. People across the world seem currently obsessed with telling their own stories. Empathetic marketing begins with looking at data and coming to understand what matters to the world around us instead of ourselves BEST MOMENTS 'What I loved about it is the game - the marketing game behind how politicians get elected' 'A lot of people who do extraordinary things are flawed characters' 'The marketing world is rigged for almost every single business out there' 'My mission in life is to wake up business owners' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment    Phillip Stutts - https://www.winbigmedia.com/phillip-stutts ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.
