Campaign Description

We heard about the Build Her Business campaign through social media and as a small firm, with big goals, it seemed like a great way to gain some exposure to new customers. Our biggest goal is to attract the attention of potential customers which will give us the opportunity to continue building a sustainable business well into the future. Through the funds raised during this crowdfunding campaign, we intend to purchase new technology including our new ATS (applicant tracking system) and assessment tool for the recruitment division at a cost of approximately $5000.00, purchase a new project management program for the virtual administration division at a cost of approximately $1572.00, and to open an online store with digital policies and procedures for the human resources division at a cost of approximately $660.00. The reminder of the funds for our goal will go towards having a presence at a couple of conferences in 2020.

A Leap of Faith Makes a Dream Come True

When I started Talented Solutions, I did so because there were very limited options for human resources consulting and recruitment firms in the Grande Prairie area. Our city is frequently highlighted as being a great place to do business and for being very entrepreneurial and if there’s one thing most entrepreneurs can use, it’s a hand with managing their human resources.

With the support of my husband and kids, I jumped in with both feet. Our family sold our beautiful home and my pickup truck in favor of purchasing a smaller home and a used car so we could make sure we had the means to support my dream of opening the business.

About 6 months into our operations, I decided to add virtual administration to our services. Though not originally a part of our business plan, I could see that there was a real market for it. With so many businesses being in a position where they weren’t yet able to use our recruitment services and without staff they didn’t really need much in terms of human resources, our virtual administration division has allowed them to get the support they need so they can continue to grow. And as they grow, our team will be right beside them, cheering them on and supporting them the whole way.

This brings us to today, from 2018 to 2019 our revenue tripled and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. It’s true that we’re still small but we’re growing and have big goals for 2020 and beyond. With all we’ve accomplished so far, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future.
