Welcome to the ONLY Recruiting and Retention education you'll ever need to FIND,
HIRE, and KEEP the talent you need to fuel your business's profitable growth.
By the creators of
DO ANY OF THESE SOUND LIKE YOU?
A Multi 6, 7, or 8-Figure Business Owner who knows that people are the key to building the business and legacy you want to create, but you're losing hope that you can actually find, hire, and keep the people you need.
A Business Owner that is looking to position their business for sale and knows that without the right people in place you won't get top dollar (and may not ever get an offer)
A High-Achieving Executive with an equity stake that understands that a high-performing team is the key to the payday you're working so hard for, but you're frustrated and disappointed with the applicants (or lack thereof) you're seeing.
A General Manager who has full profit and loss accountability that understands that the quality of their team members directly correlated to the size of their bonus and knows they're leaving money on the table by not having a stronger team that ties profit to the bottom line.
A Visionary CEO tired of taking on more, feeling the weight of damaged morale, significant reduction in productivity and poor client service delivery.
Recruiting, Hiring, and Retaining top performing employees has been the obstacle that's been holding you back from building the business you know is possible
IF SO, THEN WE'D BET ONE OF THESE IS ALSO TRUE
You're ready to grow and if you could find and hire the right people you'd add locations, product lines, or divisions to your business in the next 12 months.
You're doing everything you can think of and still not seeing the level of talent you want - leaving you feeling even more frustrated and doubtful that the talent you need to grow even exists.
You know your business has the potential to be a powerhouse, and you know - in your gut - that without the right talent acquisition and hiring practice you won't be able to reach your potential and leave the legacy you want.
You know your business hasn't hit it's highest potential. But you know it could - if you could find the right people.
WE'RE SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE!
GET READY BECAUSE WE'RE ABOUT TO TURN IT ALL AROUND...
