Starting a business is mentally tough. People think about every excuse possible not to get started. It’s not the right time or the business plan is not perfect. If we sit around long enough, we can dream up anything. What you find is that it’s the people that take action who are the ones most likely to succeed. You’re never quite ready for the situations that happen when you run a business.
Starting a company and running it for what is 10 years now has been a crazy journey. Thank you to all my team, clients and candidates, I wouldn't be here today without you all. I've learnt many things along the way and continue to every day.
When I hire new people, one of the key traits I look for is kindness. Delivering results is important, but if the person is toxic to the culture, the long term outlook won't be so good. There are loads of people in business who produce great results and are kind too.
A company is a group of people, and it’s the people that determine your experience, learning and enjoyment.
Culture and reputation are paramount for attracting top talent. Candidates don’t make their decisions of who to work for based solely on brand name and salary.
