Ideal Candidate:


They work with all types of candidates... those who have been entrepreneurs, and those who have not. There isn't one type of person they look for, but what they do look for are qualities that person processes. It's a small business, so getting out of bed everyday and hitting the ground running is key... you need to go after the business. Sales and marketing experience are a plus. You need to be able to have a conversation with your customers and show them why you are better than your competitors. They also encourage their owners to operate the business, at least to start, absentee owners do not have a strong track record of success.
