Have fun while the entrepreneural spirit guides you.
Hi, I'm Brad Rosser and this is the mantra I live by.
Perhaps this is because I was fortunate enough to work directly with two of the world's most famous entrepreneurs, Virgin's Sir Richard Branson and Australia's Alan Bond, but more likely it was in my DNA and they encouraged it. Or maybe it is simply because the entrepreneurial journey is fun and exciting!
It may also be why I believe that people who build businesses are the cornerstone of every prosperous economy. This is why I spend my life working on businesses ranging from startups and established businesses to corporates looking to rekindle their entrepreneurial growth.
I love doing the hard yards, in the trenches, with partners trying to get to the next level. This is my passion and my talent. It's what I do.
On my travels I’ve learnt that one in four start-ups fail in their first year. Worse still, only 20 per cent make it through to their sixth year. For those who do survive and prosper, even after all their hard work only a small proportion of medium sized businesses owners manage to sell. I find these statistics tragic and I passionately believe that it doesn't have to be like this.
My hands-on, practical, results-focused approach, my straight talking and my 'can do' attitude have made me a successful business builder.
So far, I have raised over £1billion with startup investments ranging from as little as £20,000 to as much as £900million.
I have nurtured and ultimately sold businesses with values from several million pounds to over hundreds of millions of pounds. I spend my time travelling around the world looking at new ways of living, new ways to do things.
Of course there are definitely some ‘do’s and don’ts’ and there is plenty you can do to avoid being on the wrong side of any statistic. I even wrote a book about starting, growing and selling businesses.
But at all times I feel entrepreneurial spirit is at the core of any success.
If my philosophy resonates with you, please glance through the rest of the website which outlines my background and my current projects, and then feel free to contact me. Perhaps you need some help getting to that next level, getting ready to sell and selling, or you would like to join me on one of my adventures, or you just want to communicate with a like-minded person.
At any rate, go out, grow - and let the entrepreneurial spirit guide you.
See how Brad's passion and open approach gets results!
Do you have a killer business idea that you want to make a reality? Do you already run a business and are looking for help to grow it to the next level and, ultimately, sell it? Or do you simply have a business question for me?
