James Blackwell, also known as Entrepreneur James, wants you to stop wasting your time and energy trying to figure out what business venture you should take to become wealthy. As someone who has built a seven-figure earning recruitment agency, he says that through his program, he’ll show you his journey on how he achieved that. So that you can replicate the same level of financial success that he acquired. But will his methods and system work for you as well? And is his business venture also suitable for your needs? Let’s find out.
For most people, running a recruitment agency means that you’re going to spend all day over the phone doing cold calls or reaching out to various profiles on LinkedIn. But for James Blackwell, that isn’t the case at all. In fact, those activities don’t apply to high-level agency owners at all, he explains. “They have systems in place that allow them to cast a wide net and catch swarms of clients, resulting in exponential growth each and every month. Which is why I’m able to live in Dubai and spend most of my time truly enjoying the success of my business, without having to check on it every day. I have the freedom to enjoy a lifestyle that I built for myself. I’m no longer constrained by a lack of time or by other people,”
“You need to really understand one important fact,” James continued. “The success of your agency is solely dependent on you. It’s not about how hard you can work because anyone can grind away twelve, fifteen hours a day. And don’t get me wrong. Working like that can make you a lot of money, but at the risk of sounding cliche, I have to ask you: Are you living to work or working to live? Because, if you wanna win at this game, you have to work smarter.”
James then presents three tips on how you can work smarter for your business to flourish. Not just for an agency kind of business, but basically any type of business. The first tip is to avoid prospecting like the plague. This can be admittedly hard, and this may be the very reason why you’re getting good results for your agency business. But as James explains, relying on prospecting too much means you’ll never be able to scale your business to where you want it to be. Instead of you reaching out to prospects constantly, you should make it so that the reverse happens. Clients will instead automatically come to you and do business with you.
Entrepreneur James’s second tip is that retainers are an illusion. Again, it can sound contradictory to some of your former beliefs, but it’s only because James is considering all the possibilities. In an ideal world, two clients each paying 3,000 a month, and being signed a contract for a six-month commitment is already enough for your business. In the real world, however, you may encounter clients who don’t even honor the contract and the fine print at all. With that in mind, some of them will simply “ghost” you when they’re not feeling it to work with you anymore, oftentimes without paying you at all. And since pursuing legal action may cost you more than what you can earn from that client, they’re banking on the fact that many businesses like yours would find it troublesome.
The final tip is, as James would put it, to “switch from soldier to general“. Stop working in the business and start working on the business. This is where the concept of developing a system and automation for your business comes into play. As a general delegates to his soldiers various tasks, so should you delegate some of the needed work to personnel that you hired. By achieving this, you’ll be able to achieve more while doing less, thus giving you even more free time to do something else entirely.
Entrepreneur James’ coaching program gives you all the templates, tools, and frameworks you need in order to be successful at building your recruitment agency business. As the website says, his training program will help you review your current situation, services, revenue, and team, deep dive into your growth plans and what success looks like for you in the future, get clear about the real problems holding you and your business back from success, and come away with new insights to increase velocity toward your goals and a path to success.
There’s no mention of cost here. You have to book a “discovery call” with them to find out. The pitch looks promising, to be honest. But I don’t really think setting up a recruitment agency business is suitable for just about everyone, even when they put some work into it. Besides, James seems to be missing some specifics on his pitch, so it’s a bit of a letdown for him.
