On this episode of Agency Nation Radio, Christopher Sheely, owner of Christopher Sheely Agency in Atlanta, shares that his goal is to grow his staff by 400% in the next five years—to at least 20, up from the four currently working at the young agency.
After launching the agency in June 2021, Sheely used the Great Resignation to his advantage, spreading the word to his past connections and using the lure of freedom and opportunity that many job seekers are looking for.
“There were quite a few employees quitting State Farm, and it just so happened that it coincided with me starting my agency," Sheely says. “Two of my current employees were just tired of the 9 to 5 structure—they wanted something a bit more flexible."
