Get uncomfortable

A remember reading an article online somewhere that was interviewing several well-known entrepreneurs about the “secrets” to their success… There were lots of gems in there, but one thing that stood out to me was this quote… “The more you can find things that make you uncomfortable and do them anyway the more you’ll find…

Just to clarify

Was listening to a podcast a while back that really resonated with me and reminded me of a lot of the Recruitment and Search Business Owners I help… The episode was talking about the importance of clarity and how, without it, any problem you have in your business can seem stressful, overwhelming, cause sleepless nights…

Hunt then build

The longer I work with Recruitment and Search Firm Owners, the more I am convinced that they are split into 2 types: CHASERS AND BUILDERS. The CHASERS are like the hunters of old. They see an opportunity, and they chase it. Some days they come back with a fresh wildebeest to eat for a few…

Responsibility > Blame

I’m very selective about who I take on as a client and have a strict screening process in place to repel the wannabes, talkers and bullshitters. Admittedly, now and then one of them slips through the net, and I’ll have to show them the door after we’ve started working together. But for the most part,…

I’ve been lying

A mentor of mine helped me come to a realisation a while back… I’ve been lying to myself… For almost all of my life in one capacity or another… And I’ve seen the same behaviour in the Recruitment and Search Business Owners I help… And if you’re willing to be honest with yourself, I’m sure…

Hiring Managers want more sex not more broccoli

A big mistake I see from Recruitment and Search Business Owners when marketing and selling their services is… they focus on the process they use rather than the outcome they deliver! The process is important… But all your prospects really want is the end result… It’s like a personal trainer selling the idea of exercising…

“No”

Most Recruitment/Search Business Owners don’t say ‘NO’ often enough… Often believing any business is better than no business… Saying ‘YES’ to any and everyone as long as they’re willing to pay something… Anything… Even when it’s significantly less than the fee you actually want… WRONG! There’s good business and there’s bad business… There’s Hiring Mangers…
