Meet Bradley

Founder

Bradley Hamner

Bradley started his first business in 2009 with no customers, no leads and very little cash but he did have a desire to win and succeed.  After being successful early in his career in sales, Bradley believed that his ability to be the Rainmaker for the business would be enough to grow and scale.  That however, proved not to be the case.

From 2009 – 2014 after seemingly working around the clock, Bradley knew something had to change.  After a health scare, Bradley began to build back himself first and then his business “architecting” his business to work for him, not the other way around.

Since then, he has gone on to start three other successful businesses and launched a podcast dedicated to leadership development.  Bradley fundamentally believes that if business owners would work harder on themselves more than anything else then they can go from Growth to Contribution.

In 2017, he founded what was then called “The Hamner Group” later rebranded as “Business Growth Curator” to help entrepreneurs avoid the same mistakes he made early in his career so they too can become architects for their business which will lead to the freedom they wanted when they first set out to start their business in the first place.  Bradley loves to mix in stories, analogies and metaphors to help anchor his concepts, tools and frameworks.

He is also the host of the incredibly popular podcast “The Club Capital Leadership Podcast” where he interviews authors, speakers, coaches, consultants, experts and entrepreneurs to help his listeners Grow their Leadership, Develop their team, Scale their Business and Make a Difference.

Bradley has been married to the love of his life, Amanda since 2008 and they have two beautiful (and very active) children together.  Bradley and his family live in Huntsville, AL.  When he isn’t working, you’ll find him either at the lake, on the golf course, coaching his kids or cheering on his beloved Auburn Tigers.

He often ends with his talks with the tag line – “Lead well”
