For me, today is a Monday morning like no other, as I am thrilled to launch Monday at Nine, a brand new Marketing and Sales recruitment agency in the heart of Leeds. Those that know me well will know I have always been an entrepreneurial thinker and it has been a dream of mine to run my own business. Starting with a Laptop, a notepad and an just an idea, Monday at Nine champions the ethos that better people create better results and I am truly excited to deliver a bespoke offering to businesses and professionals in the region and build a business that people can trust.
One of the things that inspired me most to start this business was Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos’ Regret Minimization Framework, in which he projects himself to age 80 and aims to look back on his life with as little regret as possible. If you haven’t yet, give it a read!
I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has helped me in my career to this point. Learning my trade whilst being part of one of the biggest names in the recruitment industry has given me a fantastic springboard to launch Monday at Nine and I have been so fortunate to work alongside some amazing people. I am so thankful to everyone that has helped this dream become a reality and I will strive every day to make this business the most honest and trusted recruitment partner in the industry. For me, the hard work begins now.
A number of people have asked me 'Where do you want to be in five years?' My answer is I have no bloody idea - I am sure there are going to me thousands of ups and downs to come, however if I can surround myself with the best people I genuinely don't think there is a limit to how far the business can grow. For right now though? Let's just get through the first year and see what happens.
Have a great Monday everyone.
