When I started Plan B in August of 2010, I was simply keen to get to the end of the year. Starting a business is a like jumping off a cliff, and hoping you grow wings. 2011 came along and then the goal was to make it to 2012… and so on. Even though I sit here with the company still in the ‘Boutique’ category, I would not want it any other way. I’m happiest when I’m close to the action and the team works closely with our clients.
It’s been a roller-coaster ride which has seen good days and bad. You learn along the way through mistakes. I wouldn’t recommend partnerships at a business structure, but joint ventures with good micro-agency recruiters have been wonderful. I’m still learning every day, and continue to have the fire-in the-belly that got me started in the first place.
To all of the candidates, clients, consultants, and coaches who have helped Plan B to get to the 9 year mark, I just want to say THANK YOU. Here’s to another great 9 years to come! – John
