In today’s podcast, we talk to Jeremy Jenson, Founder and CEO of Encore Search Partners, a 38-person executive search firm in Houston. He tells us about his journey since starting the business in 2013, and how he plans to stay the course with his talented staff despite uncertainties in the economy.
“We think that going into the face of a downturn, being fully staffed, and almost even overstaffed, is really an opportunity for us to capture market share while our competitors are laying off,” he said. “That way, when things recover, hopefully in 18 months, 24 months, or whatever the economists say, our market share percentage will actually take a much bigger piece of the pie.”
The main topics of today's episode will be:
Learning how to delegate and work on your business instead of in it.
How the recruiting business is cyclical but not completely insulated from economic downturns.
Being intentional about improving things in your life, one at a time, with an accountability partner such as a life coach.
