Bradley always emphasizes a critical piece of advice: never trust a coach who doesn’t have a coach. His commitment to personal and professional growth has led him to invest in his development consistently. Recently, he returned from a mastermind session in Tampa, Florida, hosted by Chad Cannon and other esteemed leaders. This diverse group of business owners from across the country and various industries has been a source of immense learning for Bradley. Today, Bradley shares six key lessons from his time in Tampa, structured to provide high-level insights followed by detailed explanations.

Six: The Value of Community

Bradley has always believed in the power of community, especially in the business world. Despite the incredible advancements in artificial intelligence, he maintains that nothing can replace the experience of being in a room with other like-minded individuals, sharing ideas, and learning from one another. He recalls a challenging week in Austin, Texas, where personal commitments almost prevented him from attending the mastermind session. However, Chad Cannon’s insistence on his presence made Bradley realize the importance of being part of a community. Once in Tampa, he immediately felt the positive impact of being surrounded by other business owners, gaining perspectives he wouldn’t have had otherwise.

Five: My Business Isn’t as Unique as I Think It Is

One of the most humbling realizations for Bradley was understanding that his business wasn’t as unique as he thought. Across various industries and revenue levels, from marketing consulting firms to multi-million-dollar enterprises, the fundamental principles of business remain the same. Bradley witnessed a fellow mastermind member sell his company for eight figures while they were at the event. This reinforced the idea that core business principles—like messaging, problem-solving, team-building, and customer retention—are universal. By learning from others and applying these principles to his own business, Bradley realized the importance of not becoming too insular and instead embracing broader business fundamentals.
