As you watch CNBC on your morning commute & see yet another competitor with a 50% annual growth rate, you silently wonder…
“Once I hired a top-performer into every seat, we began beating our plan. Every. Single. Quarter.”
You can have the best-laid strategy to scale your business… but without a winning team, it will FAIL miserably.
Finally, an award-winning executive recruiter reveals the step-by-step secrets for finding & hiring a top-performer every time (while avoiding the duds who hold you back!)
AS SEEN ON:
In your hyper-competitive category, the only way to win is to put a Rockstar in every seat in your company.
Imagine. In just months, you can go from missing Plan to crushing it:
Open the floodgates of amazing candidates who will knock their targets out of the park.
Pick the right talent from the stack.
Hire with confidence to avoid those ugly first-month surprises.
Out-recruit & out-execute your competitors even in the tightest job market ever.
You have no illusions about the hustle required to grow your company.
You don’t live by Tim Ferriss’s 4-hour workweek.
Heck, you’re even working on the weekends, when you should be coaching your kid’s Little League team!
And yet… as you review last month’s results, you see…
You’ve MISSED the target by 20%…
What’s stopping your business from beating Plan instead & becoming the one to watch out for?
- If you’ve sat in staff meetings, listening to yet another missed-the-mark presentation and felt frustrated by your team’s lack of ability to build & execute on your vision…
- If you’ve laid awake all night, trying to figure out how to get your boss – or your investors – off your back because you’ve missed the numbers again…
- If you’ve found that – instead of leading & building – you spend your days babysitting your team, fielding 237 daily emails on trivial items, deeply disappointed by their lack of initiative & follow-through…
You know you have a problem.
Is it that your product isn’t good enough?
Is your technology to blame?
Is your marketing not up to scratch?
The answer to all these questions is… NO.
Your brand, your technology, your product are all A-Okay.
You’re losing momentum, money, market share (and your peace-of-mind) month after month.
So… what’s stopping you from overtaking the competition and finally crushing your numbers?
The truth: People.
To be specific: Your people.
The reality is that 90% of your business problems are actually recruiting problems in disguise.
You don’t have the team that will take your business to that near-mythical “next level.”
You don’t have the team with the burning drive & desire to go after goals with 0% fear and 100% focus.
You don’t have the team that can peel rubber on the revenue & growth racetrack.
Yet, here’s the thing…
It’s not your fault.
It’s not even your team’s fault.
No one teaches that ‘hiring the best’ is where business all comes together.
So, like most leaders, you’ve gotten used to settling for a meager 50% hiring accuracy, instead of aiming for near-perfect.
Your college classes never taught you how to identify, hire, and retain top talent.
Your mentor never gave you the Golden Ticket needed to put an A-Player in every seat.
You’ve done the BEST you could with what you have.
Except now… It’s time for a change.
Your schedule’s a mess. Meetings run late. Your agenda’s never-ending. Nothing goes according to plan.
Your personal life’s tanking. Weekends & evenings are spent putting out fires that never should have taken place.
You’re tired of playing “Helicopter Mom” to a bunch of babies instead of being the leader that you’re meant to be.
Your health’s suffering. Those 15 pounds aren’t going to vanish magically. And you haven’t slept a full 8 hours in… forever.
Your company’s taking a beating at the hands of the competition, over and over again.
It’s time to scale your company, one Rockstar hire at a time.
Whether you’re a CEO, an entrepreneur, a department head, or an investor, the secret to reclaiming business profitability (and your personal productivity) lies in assembling a team of Rockstars.
“Rockstar” is shorthand for the best talent you can get your hands on, to ensure that your company thrives with seeming ease.
Rockstars don’t just step up to challenges. They’re excited & driven by them.
Adding even just one Rockstar to your team can lead to a dramatic surge in growth, productivity and overall performance.
Not just that…
… A-Players attract other A-Players, which starts a virtuous cycle.
And the best part?
Your competitive moat deepens with each Rockstar you place in a seat.
By now, you're wondering a few things:
Aren’t Rockstars “divas” or “prima donnas” to work with?
How can I attract Rockstars in a world where the unemployment rate is at a record-low?
Can my boring, non-sexy business ever attract A-Players?
Don’t Rockstars demand ridiculously high compensation packages?
How can I even start identifying that unicorn A-Player to begin with?
The truth? These are mere myths about A-Players.
In just a second, you’ll find out how to gain an unassailable competitive advantage by recruiting Rockstars…
…but first, let’s tackle these myths. Because they’re actually the reasons your revenue & growth have stalled…
Discover the Real Reasons Behind Your Revenue Roadblocks
These 5 myths are single-handedly crippling your business. They (not your competition) are what’s stopping you from hitting your targets.
Every. Single. Quarter.
When you buy into them, you place yet another roadblock in your company’s path to progress.
Myth #1: It’s super-expensive to hire A-Players
Studies show that A-Players aren’t driven primarily by the compensation package.
Not just that. When you look at the cost of mis-hiring, you’ll see that hiring the best talent will, in fact, save you money.
A recent report by SHRM Society for Human Resource Management actually revealed that the cost of a bad hire is five (5!) times that person’s annual compensation. Ouch!
Most importantly, when you hire A-Players, you won’t need to hire as many.
Because Rockstars are 10-20 times more effective than B- & C-Players, you’ll actually end up with a leaner yet more efficient team.
Myth #2: My business isn’t sexy enough for an A-Player
You can find A-Players in any industry, any location, for any position.
Whether you own a chain of grocery stores, or a run-of-the-mill consulting firm, or a super-sexy software company, your business can (and will!) attract A-Players once you know how to find, hire, and retain them.
Myth #3: All the best players are already taken
You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know this: Even though unemployment is at a record low, employee dissatisfaction isn’t. In fact, 84% of employees are unhappy enough in their current role to consider other job offers.
You just need to know how to approach them.
Right now, a ton of Rockstars are wishing they could find an opportunity like yours.
However, they aren’t hanging out on internet job boards. That is why it’s more crucial than ever that you know how to find & hire them.
Myth #4: Rockstars are difficult to work with
The definition of a Rockstar doesn’t mean a prima donna or a diva.
On the contrary, a Rockstar is the easiest person to work with. Because they don’t need babysitting or heavy-duty hand-holding.
When you hire Rockstars, the rest of your work largely takes care of itself. Put simply, you get your life back.
Myth #5: We can create Rockstars
Unfortunately, you can’t.
C-players never become B-Players. And B-Players rarely, if ever, become A-Players.
There’s always the exception to the rule. Sometimes, a would-be-A-Player shines when placed in the right position. But for the most part, you’ll find that underperformers stay right where they are: Holding you back.
So, if it isn’t expensive, time-consuming, or difficult to find Rockstars, how can you do it?

Other Executives Asked These Questions Before Saying "Yes" to Recruit Rockstars: The Complete Course
You’re right. You have been recruiting for years and maybe, you’ve even had some success with hiring brilliant people.
But… how’s it going for you, on the whole?
Are you happy with the way your company’s growing?
Are you happy with everyone on your team?
Are they all A-Players?
Do you walk out of every interview knowing exactly why that candidate will disappoint you or why they’re perfect?
If not, then, you need Recruit Rockstars so you can plug those gaps, take your 50% hiring accuracy from 50% to 90% or more.
Besides, the unemployment rate hasn’t been this low in 50 years. So what used to work isn’t working any more. It’s time to learn what does work.
Spot on! You do have an HR team and, yes, it is their job to find candidates but the reality is that… no one knows your vacant positions like YOU do.
In addition, HR teams are incredibly stressed and have a lot going on.
You’re competing for their attention and resources and this can lead to the “settle-for-a-warm-body” syndrome.
In fact, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to go through the program WITH your HR team so both of you are on the same page and have the same set of razor-sharp recruitment skills needed to find and hire the best talent.
Recruit Rockstars is not your average “recruitment” how-to program.
It is a step-by-step, proven-to-work and CEO-approved framework for finding, hiring AND retaining A-Players. Regardless of the size of your business, your industry, or your location.
Hiring A-Players is expensive. Can my business really compete with the Googles & Facebooks of the world?
This is a big MYTH.
The best talent isn’t excited most by compensation.
In fact, you’ll find what really excites these A-Players inside the Recruit Rockstars course and you’ll know exactly how to use that to bring them over to your company.
Not just that. When you have an A-team, you don’t need as many people on your payroll.
Remember: 5 Rockstars can outperform 20 B-Players. Simple.
Here’s the thing… you’re busy because you’re micromanaging underperformers and nonstarters. #truth
Also, the course is structured to be bite-sized and quick-to-do.
You get 30 videos and none of those videos are more than 5-7 minutes.
So, you can watch them as you get ready in the morning, on your commute to work, or as you run on the treadmill.
And let’s not forget, there’s a reason Jeff’s an in-demand public speaker. His videos are not only on-point but also entertaining and actually enjoyable!
PLUS… you have LIFETIME access so you can dip in & out whenever you want.
When you join us for Recruit Rockstars, you get access to a private community where Jeff and his team are present every day to answer questions & share additional material.
Not just that. If you join within 5 days, you also get the 3 VIP BONUS SUITE:
- a 30-minute, 1-on-1 phone call with Jeff to help you crack your biggest recruiting roadblock,
- 4 live Q&A video sessions to help you master Recruit Rockstar strategies, and

Not only has Jeff started 4 companies, raised over $55 million in venture capital, recruited over 3,000 people, he also hosts a successful podcast, is a sought-after public speaker, and teaches the first-ever course about Recruiting at Kellogg School of Management.
He is fanatical about recruiting Rockstars and the impact it can have on a business.
It’s his mission and he’s finally distilled 25 years of recruitment experience into an easy-to-implement system so your business can scale rapidly, without you having to sacrifice your weekends & vacation time at the altar of profitability.
Recruit Rockstars is Perfect for You If...
You’re a CEO and/or Founder who’s tired of hearing that the team’s missed the target by 20%… AGAIN.
You’re the VP of Sales and your lightweight sales team is giving you nothing more than sleepless nights & chronic heartburn.
You’re an HR executive or Recruiter who knows that the job market has never been tighter. There are 90,000 recruiters in the US alone and, if you don’t up your game, you’ll never attract the perfect candidates for those hard-to-fill roles.
You’re a Private Equity or Venture Capital investor and you’re tired of your portfolio company CEO’s signing up to one number after another, only to miss them all by a mile.
You’ve been recruiting people for years but your gut instinct (and stagnant growth) tells you that it’s time for a change… fast.
You’re getting started with hiring a new team and you don’t want to settle for B-Players.
You’re fiercely committed to scaling your business. And you know that, with the right people on your team, growth – insane, wildly-profitable growth – is a GIVEN.
You’re ready to walk out of candidate interviews with unbeatable confidence knowing that you assessed your candidates accurately.
If you nodded “Yes” to any of the above, you can be 110% sure that Recruit Rockstars: The Complete Course is designed for you.
By now, you already know that that the biggest difference between businesses that beat their numbers without sucking every ounce of free time and those that experience dwindling revenues, missed targets and more churn than an ice-cream machine on a hot summer day is…
… a ROCKSTAR team.
So, since you’ve come this far, let’s talk straight…
It’s time to stop settling…
You can either spend strategic and laser-focused time on the front end, carefully finding and hiring rockstars to accelerate your growth and productivity…
You can continue to spend an exhausting number of hours on micromanaging, dealing with inefficiencies and spinning on the unending hiring-firing-hiring-firing Treadmill.
