Season 6 | Ep26 – Daniel Puttick on how taking his foot off the gas was a HUGE mistake for his recruitment business

29 March 2023|In Podcasts|By Sean Anderson

For this episode, I’m excited to be joined by Daniel Puttick, the founder of LINKS Recruitment Group.

They’re headquartered in Cardiff, with 25 staff in offices in Birmingham and Bristol.

Dan started the business in 2017 and reached rather quick success.

He saw 7 figures of revenue and record profits inside the first few years. 

In Dan’s words, he got to a point where he thought he’d made it. 

As they were making more and more money, he began investing in different businesses.

He began starting work at different times, leaving the team to run the business.

He essentially took his foot off the gas… 

It soon backfired!

In this episode we talked about

🎙️How Daniel got to the point where his business was in a great place

🎙️What happened to the business when he took his foot off the gas

🎙️Daniel being quite a controlling leader and what he’s had to do to learn from his own mistakes 

🎙️How he had to change himself to make the business flourish

Dan was super candid and super humble in his approach, and you can see he’s got his fire back to take the business to the next level. 

So anyone listening to this who’s thinking about starting a business, this is a real honest account of the highs and the lows, the reality of what you must consider.

But also, if you’re in the thick of growth and you think you might be at a point where you can take your foot off the gas, hopefully, this might keep you in the right direction.
