I am a 29year-old business owner of an executive search firm by the name of KAS Placement based in New York City. KAS Placement was started in 2005 from studio apartment on the Upper West Side with no backing and only a 30page book from Barnes and Noble to reference.
Now, KAS Placement is one of the better-known sales and marketing search firms in the United States and boasts clients from all around the world of all sizes in nearly every industry. Due to an increase in space requirements, KAS Placement just signed its second lease and has upwards of 3+ clients inquiring for our staffing services daily.
As a business writer, my articles have been syndicated or published in: WSJ.com, Forbes.com, NYTimes.com, USAToday.com, BusinessInsider.com, About.com, AOL.com, Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, FUSE.tv, CollegeRecruiter.com, Yahoo!, Opednews.com, DallasNews.com, YoungEntrepreneur.com, Entrepreneurs-journey.com, Examiner.com as well as many, many more. My reader base on the web stretches well over the 500,000 mark and exposure and name recognition nearly double that.
Moreover, I was the runner-up to be the About.com Sales Career Guide. For my knowledge in either entrepreneurship, marketing, sales or job seeking, I've been quoted in CBS MoneyWatch.com, FINS.com (WSJ.com Careers), Oprah's MORE (October Issue), About.com and, among others Monster.com.
I have also been invited to speak at Pace University's Alumni Career Services as well as Syracuse's Whitman School of Management.
I would like to consider myself one of the few writers that is actually a real business owner with real employees, a real revenue stream and real offices. When you look deeply, many business writers do not nor have never carried yearly expenses of $250,000+. With no experience, I was able to grow a staffing business from nothing into an industry leader during one of the worst job economies of my lifetime.
About 90 days after graduation, Ken resigned from his position and the first year of KAS Placement consisted of a phone, the internet and an overpriced studio apartment on the Upper West Side. Ken is also a volunteer mentor for various organizations in New York City.
