Most people are dissatisfied with their jobs, in fact over 70% of Americans are not engaged employees.  So that means over 84 million people don’t really like their job.  Are you one of them?  Is nine-to-five what you really want to do the rest of your life?  If you’re thinking of starting your own business you must face your fears head on.
FEAR #1        FAILURE 
Imagine putting everything you have, your hopes, dreams, and money into starting your own business, only to watch it fail.  The fear of failure is at the top fears, even above the fear of separation and loss of autonomy.


Pros Of Owning A Business

Written on June 5th, 2017 by in Blog

One of the main reasons someone starts a Staffing and Recruiting business is to reap personal and professional benefits.  With a new business, you have the flexibility to determine your hours, work pace and work environment.  It also gives you the ability to pursue a career based on your interests.  Opening a business also represents a certain type of freedom.

You may feel limited when you are an employee by mismanagement or a limited number of promotions within your company.  While beginning a business can seem daunting, the potential for financial success is there.  Another important fact to consider is that self-employed businesspersons were four times more likely to be millionaires than those in traditional employer-employee roles.  When you own a Staffing and Recruiting Firm, the only person that can limit your growth is yourself.

Can My Company be Set up as a Non-Profit?

Written on May 31st, 2017 by in Blog

You could make the decision to set up your company as a non-profit, but why would you do that?  I’ve always said the individuals in our Profession are “social workers who like money.”  We do want to help people and make a difference but realize we need to also take care of ourselves and the people we love.

My advice would be to incorporate, become an extremely profitable business and then donate to the non-profit causes you support.  The more you make, the more you can donate.

If done right, you can build a business that can provide you with the lifestyle you deserve to live, while allowing you to help others.

Top Talent is Hard to Find

Written on May 15th, 2017 by in Blog

It is very difficult to find top talent in today’s competitive Job Market.  This is the BEST market for the Staffing and Recruiting Profession.  If it was EASY to find candidates, no one would need our services.

This candidate-driven market is going to exist for many years due to the retiring baby boomers, global competition for top talent, the trend toward a flexible workforce and the ever-changing demands of technology.

There has never been a better time in History to enter the Staffing and Recruiting Profession and the prediction for the future is continual growth.

Is Staffing and Recruiting HR?

Written on May 2nd, 2017 by in Blog

This is a common misconception.  Individuals in the Staffing and Recruiting must learn and adhere to employment laws and most HR Departments employ a Recruiter or Talent Acquisition Professional.  However, Recruiting is a Sales Profession not Human Resource.

You will sell candidates to hiring authorities and you will sell your services to the clients who will utilize your services.   You have people on both sides of the sales, which can be extremely challenging.  One of both parties can change their mind, priorities, timing or even decide to put a job on hold or decide not to change jobs.  You must learn to overcome objections, listen more than you talk and position yourself as the solution to problems.
