In this exclusive interview, we chat with Mark Farris about the critical success factors that, with Romney's help, led to a successful exit.

Imagine Selling Your Recruitment Business
for 7 or 8 Figures

Picture yourself uncorking a bottle of champagne and celebrating with your closest friends and family, knowing you were free of financial worry forever.

At this point, you might be thinking "Yeah, right!" and we wouldn't blame you for feeling sceptical.  After all, for most recruitment business owners, this dream is so distant from their current reality that it seems like nothing more than a pleasant fantasy.

The truth is, setting a "Big Hairy Audacious Goal" can be pretty scary.  It's easier to tell oneself, "Let's be realistic" or "I'll never be able to achieve that, so why even try" or "that guy just got lucky."  That way, we don't have to deal with our fear of failure or the uncomfortable possibility of disappointment

But before you give into fear and self-doubt by dismissing the idea out of hand, ask yourself this powerful two word question: "What if?"

What if it were possible?  What if you really could do it?  After all, other business owners like Mark Farris have succeeded in doing so.  If they can do it, why not you?  If you were 100% committed, and had all the tools, resources and information you needed, could you find a way to make it happen?

What if the only thing standing in your way is knowledge?  What if you had a mentor who could show you the exact step-by-step process to follow, and the pitfalls to avoid?  What if you could develop the necessary skills and knowledge, by learning directly from someone who's already done it multiple times?

That's exactly why Mark Farris hired Romney Rawes.  Now you have the same opportunity before you.  When you join Recruitment Growth Accelerator, you'll gain access to the same knowledge that enabled Mark to sell his firm for £25M in 18 months.

I attended a seminar that Romney delivered for senior managers in Recruitment. I approached him about helping us formulate a strategy to exit the business in 3-5 years. We appointed Romney as a Non-Executive Director. He gave us a fresh perspective, objective analysis, accountability plus ideas and insights based on 40 years recruitment experience. We increased our spread of clients, increased our margins.

We looked at what we could do in terms of marketing and strategy for getting more business. Romney helped us to develop our second tier of management, to develop their skills, so that the business was less reliant on the individuals who set it up and could operate successfully without us.

He accelerated the process of achieving a successful exit – within 18 months of hiring Romney we sold the business for £25,000,000.
