I'm Bradley Richardson
I'm Bradey Richardson, a 5x author, a headhunter, a coach and mentor, entrepreneur, a single dad of 3 obscenely gorgeous, bad ass kids & a blue pit bull, a 5th generation Texan living in Dallas... and some even say a "pretty good guy".
... a few people call me things that end in "hole, "ucker" or "ick"... but I tend to ignore them.
Here is a taste of professional AND personal info to get you up to speed quickly and familiar.

but first... a quick word on "bios" & personal info
I've found that anyone can have a trained PR monkey write a glowing bio or background page, filled with vague BS terms like "visionary" or "thought leader."
You've seen them, the type of amorphous, hyperbole and grandiose BS that make that person appear to have split the atom in between modeling gigs, saving puppies and teaching orphans to read.
Need proof? Go on LinkedIn or Instagram and see how many 25 year old "transformative, "game changing", "influencers" you'll find. Free Pro Tip... If Oprah, Fast Company or The Wall Street Journal call you a "visionary, thought leader" ... YOU ARE! ie. Malcomb Gladwell, Seth Godin. If you call yourself that ... chances are YOU AIN'T. (sorry Bob with Accounting Pro's in Toledo)
Of course I realize there has to be some sizzle with the steak, but I also believe that it is just as important to know the real person and his or her story, as it is the stats or career highlights.
Speaking of career highlights, hyperbole aside, I take the approach of former baseball great Dizzy Dean said, "If you've done it, it aint braggin." But you need to know both professional and personal so read on below.
