How to Start a Business with No Money

This week on the podcast, we delve into the hardship of business startup with the founders of Black Wolf Consultancy, a recruitment firm who is shaking up the industry. They describe the early startup days with no filter, and give us advice on how to start a business with no money. 

In the beginning, Tanya Abbey and Peter Tsokelenis set out to bridge the missing links that so often appeared in the recruitment process. They decided they would do things differently; They would hire from anywhere for anyone. They developed The Recruitment Evolution, changing the way companies hire their most valuable resource: people. But not without adversity.

Imagine this: You’re in the startup phase have your first important meeting with a key prospective client, and you know that the opportunity to work with them will make or break your business. But you don’t have enough money for petrol and they want to meet with you in ten minutes. 

So, how DO you start a business with next to no money in the bank? What is the single most important decision you can make in your business that takes you from one client to fifty staff members? 

In this most humbling chat with Tanya and Peter, they share awesome tips on investing in your company wisely, getting through your toughest pitch, hiring the right people, finding joy in paying bills, defining your role in the company and the importance of mentorship.

I hope this conversation gives you the internal fire and the real-life knowledge to kickstart the business that you’ve been dreaming of, no matter what your bank account looks like.
