Chuck Boles with The CHUCK & BUDDY COLLEGE of Business Knowledge seeks an intern to help with his Continuity Growth Systems project.
Students should contact Chuck Boles for more information and to apply: 703.850.7400 (call or text)
Background: Using a business model of “more associates = more production = more profits”, real estate companies aggressively recruit independent contractors entrepreneurs (called associates) as resources for building their businesses. This “aggressive recruiting” business model has molded an industry belief that “recruiting as many associates as possible will benefit the firm’s profits”.
History has proven this “non-committal, quantity recruiting model” unsustainable for the positive growth of a real estate firm. Why? Having no interest in creating a career, a vast majority of recruited associates are part time players, unproductive and/or negative drains on resources and profits.
What about the productive, career minded associate? Unfortunately, firm owners commit little (or nothing) to help the productive, serious, career minded associate build his/her career, resulting in 87% of the associates “simply walking away from their books of business” at the end of their careers.
Vision: Replace the current “quantity recruiting/zero profit model” with a “quality recruiting/profit growth model”; a revolutionary business model that benefits both the firm and the associate by:
- Attracting career minded associates having the goal of creating “start-to-finish” career plans with “end-of-career” strategies that include potential for cash bonuses for books of business,
- Teaching firm owners how to help the career associate achieve his/her career building goal, and
- “Recycling” career associate books of business to grow the firm’s market share and profits.
Commentary: Along with some professional colleagues, I have drafted a “recruiting and business growth guide” (titled “Continuity Growth Systems™) for firm owners who recruit independent contractor entrepreneurs as resources for building their businesses.
The guide details a sustainable “recruiting and business growth strategy” for an industry that has, historically, used non-sustainable strategies for healthy business growth.
Scope of Project: I need unbiased resources for:
(1) “Polishing” the manuscript with “arm’s length”, outsider perspectives, using
(2) Text that appeals to multi-generational audiences (Baby Boomers, Gen X and Gen Y), and
(3) Creating visual illustrations to summarize/emphasize the main points of the document.
(4) Creating a final document for submission to publisher
Time Line: Project completed by end-March, early-April 2015.
