You may be an excellent recruitment consultant but does that mean you’ve got what it takes to become a successful recruitment business owner?
Simply put, have you got what it takes? Do you have the energy, the passion and the drive, to join the select group of individuals that took a risk and opened up over 4,000 new recruitment agencies in 2014.
Enter ‘entrepreneurial traits’ into Google and you’ll be flooded with the Michelle Mone’s, Alex Polizzi’s, Steve Jobs's, Sir Richard Branson’s and Bill Gates's of the world. Whilst they inspire those brave enough to go it alone, they all share the same traits and characteristics that take them from just business people to successful entrepreneurs. Ask yourself the question, do you have what it takes to join them?
Whilst not every single business owner has Branson’s creativity, Gate’s grit or Mone’s determination, if you have opposing opinions to your corporate managers or find yourself day-dreaming about owning your own recruitment business, then you too could have what it takes to get your name etched into the entrepreneurial history books.
Starting your own recruitment business is an ultramarathon. You’ll live with uncertainty, pushing through the constant hurdles that will inevitably plague you in your early years. But when faced with this, did Branson, Polizzi, Mone or Jobs give up? No. They are all resilient, tenacious and stubborn – three traits that make a remarkable -and very wealthy- entrepreneur.
But, it isn’t enough to be driven by the money that comes with the success. You’ll need to be fuelled with a passion – an intrinsic and solid belief that your vision will drive your industry forward. Then, and only then, will you see your dream truly come alive.
It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. If you have a thirst for success, a need to succeed and a perseverance to rival the great entrepreneurs of today then you’re already half way there.
