What is your ultimate vision for your business? What are your long term aspirations for your recruitment company? There’s not a right or wrong answer to that question but it is an important decision and one that I would encourage you to start thinking about.
Certainly, it’s one of the first questions that I ask all my new coaching clients when we start working together because although there’s not a right or wrong answer it does set you off in a direction and it does to some extent determine how you structure things.
Usually when I ask that question clients fall into one of 3 categories.
- The vast majority are Solopreneurs like me who they don’t want the hassle of hiring employees in a traditional sense. They might have an offshore virtual team they might have a virtual assistant that they work with but they want to stay small and maximize their billings while still enjoying a lot of flexibility and life-work balance.
- At the other end of the spectrum, I do have a few recruitment companies I work with who are hugely ambitious so their dream is to scale their recruitment company and ultimately to be able to exit that business and then the third category is somewhere in between.
- Maybe you don’t want a huge business but you would like to build a self-managing recruitment business where you can go on vacation for two weeks or more and the business continues to make placements and generate cash flow for you but you’re certainly not the primary fee earner and you’re not required operationally on a day to day basis.
So whichever those business models you find the most attractive or the most exciting if you’d like to discuss it or get my feedback then please feel free to schedule a 15 minute clarity call with me where we can run through your options look at creating your long term vision and figure out a road-map or a strategic plan for getting you from where you are now to where you’d like to be.
