The Business Secret Podcast is based on our second book The Business Secret which you can download for FREE here. The book is aimed at business owners starting their journey or looking to shake up their business, putting the right planning in place, creating more time, and managing their team properly. The Podcast aims to shine a spotlight on some of the best established and up-and-coming business owners South Wales has to offer. Members of our team get the chance to speak openly and frankly to people that have taken the big step to go it on their own.
As a firm we wanted to give budding business owners, and those already well on their journey, the opportunity to take a candid look at the highs and lows faced by other business owners of South Wales in 2019. We discover how they found success, their future plans, and what makes them tick.
In this episode of The Business Secret Podcast, Oliver chats to Sitka Recruitment founder Ita McNeil Jones. Ita and Olly’s chat is both hilarious and candid as Ita gets under the bonnet of running Sitka and how it was built from the ground up. Ita chats openly about why being flexible with your team’s time is important stating “As long as they put the hours in and get the work done it doesn’t matter, it’s about what’s delivered in that time”. Ita also lets us know that its not always about trying to make all the money and looking after yourself is more important, and why she thinks that sponsoring events as a business might’ve been her biggest mistake early in Sitka’s life.
