The Elite Recruiter Podcast
Earlier this year I started a Podcast called Recession Proof Leadership.
I wanted to focus on leaders and how they are navigating or have navigated through tough times before.
I wanted to share the stories to as a beacon for light for other leaders as they navigated the tough environment.
The problem was shortly after creating it and lining up a few more interviews, some places and sectors caught on fire.
Stock Market started to shoot up as millions were getting laid off, and hiring went crazy in some markets.
Learning and sharing those stories was still a passion project but it just didn’t feel right as I was seeing triple digit gains in some of my smaller stock portfolios.
So I put that project on hold.
I double down on our firm.
But something over the year kept bugging me about still picking up the microphone to continue the project.
But over the year the project evolved in my head.
Personally I was very successful as an internal recruiter in my space.
But as I made that scary jump from the inside, to my own firm, I was able to digitally surround myself with some of the industries best.
Now I am relaunching the Podcast, I am want to share the success stories that I found with my industry peers.
I wanted to share the stories and the questions that I was asking early on.
How they got there.
What kind of work did it take.
Tips, Tools, and Tricks.
The Mindset needed to get them to where they are.
What they are doing with their success.
Goals and visions for the future.
So please join me on this journey as I interview some of the best in our industry and other industries on how they got to where they are now.
