CONSTRUCTION AND TRADES
Before I had Brad as my mentor I had no direction in my business and didn't understand the fundamentals of running a business.
This led to high stress and no profit.
After working with Brad I understand how to run a successful business, I have a clear direction I am taking the business, I only work 4 days a week, create consistent healthy profits on top of a good wage and have a team I can trust so I can have a holiday and know everything is sorted.
Brad knows his stuff and I wouldn't have achieved this without him.
Jayden Locke - Environ Air Conditioning
Since working with Brad, we went from a team of 3, each working 80+ hours a week and not making any money to now having 11 vehicles on the road, working no more than 20 hours a week and making profits we would never have dreamed of.

Working with Brad Flynn as our Business Coach, hasn't only transformed our business, it has transformed every area of our lives. I only wish we knew what Brad teaches when we first started our business and are grateful to be able to pass this onto our children.
- Phil & Zoe McIntosh, Allied Concrete Cutting and Drilling, Chermside
I needed someone to guide me, educate me and teach me the in’s and out's of the business world, as I was just an average tradie taking a leap of faith with no particular direction in mind.
I'd seen one of my closest friends using Brad Flynn for business mentoring. Seeing these guys do very well in their business that was thriving, it made want to start working with a business coach.
In our first session Brad instantly saved me a vast amount of money not only at the time but probably millions of dollars over the years that i will be in business.
Being just a tradesman I didn’t see outside the box and naive to running a business. After the first session, I knew I found that person to keep driving me, challenge me and step out my comfort zone, as this is what I thrive off.
Since starting with Business Mentored I've increased my turn over by over 125 x, increased my profit by 100 x, been a finalist and won awards for business, created a great working culture among my team, systemise my business and all in a time less than 3 years.
I wouldn’t have achieved or even came close to these goals if it wasn’t for Brad.
Brad Edwards – Managing Director - QPT Electrical
Brad is a master of business fundamentals and the inner workings of the mind.
No amount of words can express the gratitude I have for someone who helped me start from nothing to having a loving family, financial security and an amazing team I get to work with every day.
James Grafton - Champion Health, Owner
Working with Brad, we have learned new skills, particularly around asking better questions when faced with difficult situations.
Working to achieve win-win outcomes for our team and constant quality improvement for our business, including the perpetual team recruitment system, has been invaluable.
We gained personal growth from our sessions with Brad and would highly recommend his hands-on style of mentoring.
Sharon Armstrong & Kathryn Bishop - Owners, Embrace Life
I have worked with Brad on and off since 2010 with my business (a physio clinic). The mentorship he has given me has been transformational - the confidence I now have as a business owner has surpassed what I thought I could achieve. Don't mess around - give him a call and make a commitment.
- Nick Schuster, Scarborough Physiotherapy
Since 2010, Brad has been an integral part of the growth of my business. From myself and one other trainer to now having 5 licensees and 14 locations around Queensland, Brad’s coaching and team training sessions continue to help us grow and evolve to the next level.
- Jake McLuskie, Positive Existence Personal Training.
When I first begun coaching with Brad, we were in a position of being
ready to close the doors of my business and walk away.
I now have a team of more than 20, make more profit in a month than we made in some years and have the freedom to choose how much time I spend with my family.
– Ben Stokes - Managing Director - CRU Digital
“Only after one meeting with Brad, I improved my performance and re-focused on my goals. It wasn't about teaching me how to do new things. It was how to understand what I was doing already and do it better and in a more focused manner.
Brad's help has been invaluable in improving my sales and leasing results and would highly recommend him to anyone who thinks they are already doing well or are looking to improve their working position.”
- Phillip Grant, NAI Harcourts
I have been discussing business strategies with Brad for a few months now and found that not only does he have some great idea but his advice is practical and just plain makes sense.
- John Peters - Broadlink Finance
If you are tossing up whether or not you should engage a business coach – just do it!! And Brad Flynn is your man!
I can’t thank Brad enough for the personal development path he has opened up for me. So many learnings but one thing keeps ringing in my ears – your business cannot outgrow you!
To get your business to the next level you really need to work on yourself, your mindset and any limiting beliefs that maybe holding you back. Through working with Brad I have learnt that having a vision and purpose for your business or why you are in that business, that really resonates with you, and is aligned with your highest values, is so very important.
Knowing your WHY and really believing in it, helps you to be able to persevere and persist through all the challenges and fears you will face as you grow your business.
Having a business coach helps keep you accountable and focused. However, one of the best factors about working with Brad is being able to learn from and collaborate with his other client’s through Brad’s Business Olympians – awesome concept, where learning and supporting each other is encouraged and opens up a network of likeminded business owners for you to connect with.

Running multiple business interests often meant that we were losing focus on the critical areas and thus were not completing the most important tasks to help us get the results we wanted. Having Brad work with us, has helped us to get very clear about exactly what we want from our business and our personal lives then working out strategies to help us get there as well as keeping us accountable to get those results.
As our coach, Brad has added tremendous value by challenging us to always go to that next level as well as look out our own beliefs about what is possible. He provides sound objective external advice as well as a wealth of resources from the Act system to assist us in achieving our desired results.
If you are wanting to go to the next level with your business, I would highly recommend Brad to show you how to get there”
John Campbell – Principal – Campbell Scott Group
Brad has certainly helped me take my business to the next level. Not only have I increased my sales and profit, but I also now have better systems and processes to work more efficiently and ensure my team are all working consistently. I would highly recommend talking to Brad.
Michael van Loenen - Managing Director - Valley Mayfair Financial Services
Brad is an honest, knowledgeable and supportive business mentor. He has great strategies, resources and guidance. He will challenge you to be the best version of yourself. Highly recommended!!
Ruth Woolett - Flourish Consulting
The learning, mentoring and accountability in building our business by working with Brad, have been a key element for us in its success.
Whether it has been about finding, retaining, or getting the best out of our team, boosting profitability, improved communications or mindset shifts, we have needed in order for us to keep growing, Brad has played a significant part.
If you are serious about building a great business, you can't do it alone.
Apart from learning about business, having someone help you see blind spots and find solutions is imperative. I suggest you give Brad a call as his coaching will be the difference for you as it has been for me.
Jody Allison - Crown Properties
Brad began working with us at a time when we were doing quite well, but we knew we were missing something with getting the best from ourselves and the team.
Through the mentoring we had with Brad, we shifted our mindsets significantly around our real role as leaders in our business and how to authentically empower our team.
Most significant has been what we learned about how to ask great questions of not only ourselves but equally importantly of our teams, which has led to great solutions that they came up with that they took ownership of and successfully implemented themselves, leaving us to focus on the bigger picture.
We are both extremely grateful for what we learned working with Brad and highly recommend his services if you are looking to break through to the next level with yourself and your team.
Christie Smith & Yvonne Howard - Principals, LJ Hooker Yarrabilba
Brad Flynn has supported me to grow our business since 2014.
With Brad's guidance, we have been able to grow from a basic idea with no customers or revenue into a thriving, profitable business. We now have 10 team members who are enrolled and engaged in our vision.
By choice, I am still working "on the tools" a couple of days each week but am able to balance this with working "on the business" a few days a week too. Brad has helped us immensely, particularly with establishing a business culture, recruitment, and marketing.
We have refined our organisational values and this has given us confidence to stand firm in those, which our customers also love.
Brad's wisdom continues to provide insight when we need it and he asks the right questions at the right time to help me reflect, adapt, and grow.
Brad also has a multitude of tools and resources at his disposal, which he is only too happy to share with his clients.
Every top athlete needs a coach, and I have certainly needed the outside perspective, guidance and coaching that Brad has provided as our business coach.
He has helped me maintain our vision when I've lost my way and provided accountability when I've dropped the ball and stopped growing. We have achieved many of our business and personal goals earlier than expected, and this is in no small part a reflection on the support we have received from Brad.
Brad is a key part of our continuing business success and personal growth plan.
Luke McKenna – Managing Director of Unleashing Personal Potential
Running multiple large businesses in the education sector, in Australia and internationally can be extremely rewarding and challenging.
A positive mindset is key to success and growth. Similarly having clarity on who am I, what I want to achieve in life/family/business will take me closer to my dreams.
These were few things I was able to work and achieve with Brad over the past few years. One of the main things was getting clarity which is one of the most important things for any entrepreneur.
Brad worked very closely on my mind blocks so that I could clear them and maintain the momentum I needed to reach my goals.
If you are an entrepreneur looking for someone to have as your sounding board and coach you along the way, don't hesitate to reach out to Brad as he works with business people from diverse industries.
Santosh Pandey - Director - Queensford College
Having Brad work with me and our leadership team across 6 hotels and accommodation business units, has been a key part of our significant growth.

Chris Allison - Lewis Leisure Group, Regional Manager
Since 2021, myself and our team have been mentored by Brad Flynn. Prior to working with Brad, I lacked clarity on how to get the best out of our staff to help the business reach its full potential.
The growth in myself, the staff and business as a result of working with him has been and continues to be transformative. We are all now clear and aligned in our direction, producing outstanding results in our the bottom line and staff performance and retention.
I highly recommend working with Brad if you are wanting to take your venue to the next level and beyond.
Mitchell Paul - General Manager - The Belvedere Hotel - Woody Point.
Brad greatly assists myself in running a large business of 80+ staff. Developing techniques in delegating more effectively and empowering our staff has been a huge breakthrough that has occurred for me through working with Brad Flynn.
This in turn has helped our key staff grow, confidently take on more responsibility, becoming better leaders and staying with us longer.
As a result, I am now able to spend more time on the higher value activities that are best for the business. The amazing results we have achieved, in terms of our customers, our culture and financially in a relatively short time, have been significantly influenced through Brad's work with us.
Lachlan Bytheway - General Manager - The Komo.
As the General Manager of a very busy hotel and function Centre with a team of 27, it can be hard to sometimes see the forest for the trees.
Working with Brad gives me a valuable forum to discuss what are the highest priority actions we must take for our business and team to continue to grow and achieve our targets.
Brad’s thoughtful and balanced approach gives me powerful insights into the finer distinctions on running a successful business, I had not previously considered.
I would highly recommend Brad as a mentor, regardless of your industry.

Amy Miles - Valley Radiator Service, Managing Director
As someone in my role who is responsible for over 300 significant appointments including all of our judicial officers, the head of crime and corruption commission, human rights commission and the ombudsman,

I have been working with Brad Flynn for most of my 10 years in business.

Prior to working with Brad, I was unsure about what to do with running my business effectively and profitably.
Working with Brad has brought new focus to all aspects of my business and we’re now kicking amazing goals with great team members, better clients and improved systems for delivery.
More than just a business coach, Brad teaches, challenges, motivates and inspires whilst providing practical guidance across HR, operations and finance.

The education and support provided by Brad has been invaluable to the Redcliffe PCYC. It has helped us in many ways including recruitment & management our staff, training & education, system development and analysis, sales and marketing and goal setting and planning. He has also provided fantastic personal development for my senior staff and myself.
The changes we have seen during this time have been incredible and the club is in better shape than ever. I highly recommend Brad to anyone wishing to grow their business.
- Peter Parkes, Branch Manager- Redcliffe PCYC
“The whole process has been an extremely beneficial experience and has put strong foundations in place which will facilitate the growth of the Salon in the short-medium term.
If you’re a business owner who feels like you are constantly going through the same old processes and not getting the desired results out of your business, then I strongly recommend getting in touch with Brad - you will not be disappointed!!!”
- Kimberley Staff, Rustic Blend Hair Studio, Scarborough
Brad has presented to our students in year 10 for the last 3 years.
His simple message has been impactful on the kids, making them really think about why they are getting the results they are in all areas of their lives and the subsequent consequences, good and bad.
Our teachers have also got tremendous value from Brad's message personally and also now with someone external backing up what they have been telling the kids all along.
I highly recommend having Brad speak to any of your senior students.
Maria Williamson - Principal Redcliffe State High School
Brad has spoken for our senior students at Aspley State High School for the last couple of years, providing our students with important basic principles around life and employment.
His presentation, “What I Wish I Knew”, was entertaining, inspiring, and impactful in its simplicity and authenticity with stories from his own life experience, resonating with the students and getting positive feedback from students and parents.
To keep over 200 students engaged in a 45-minute presentation after 2pm on a Friday afternoon following on from a day at a career’s expo is no mean feat!
If you are looking for a quality external speaker to inform your senior students of what it’s like in the real world, get in touch with Brad.”
