Recruiting is such a rewarding career in general; we’re literally changing a person’s life. As far as running a business, the most rewarding part has been building it all from scratch and watching it become what it is today. Before I started RSG, I was an environmental recruiter for 19 years, and when I left my old company behind, I had to slowly build RSG from the ground up. Now, five years later, we’ve built a successful team, created this truly wonderful company, and we continue to help people day in and day out. Seeing it all come to fruition is the most rewarding part.
What has been the biggest obstacle that RSG has had to overcome?
Finding talented individuals to help us grow. I want our company to continue to expand and flourish, and I think finding talented individuals to help us grow has been the toughest part of running a company. I recently hired a business coach to help show me how to truly hit my full potential as a leader for my team.
What has been the best lesson that you’ve learned since starting RSG?
To learn from your mistakes. There’s always a lesson to be found. Everyone will make mistakes, but it’s important to take responsibility for them and move on.
What does your vision for the future of RSG look like?
I see us growing tremendously so that we can help more people. RSG will have a national team one day, I assure you. I know the only way to achieve this goal is to keep seeking out people that are smarter than me, bringing them on, and building a strong team. I think this is what leadership is all about. I want our brand to be synonymous with excellence. A few other plans I have for the future include starting a civil engineering group and a construction remediation group. Overall, I just want to continue to help people grow. I’m excited for what the future holds for RSG. I know it will be outstanding.
