Episode 24: “The Recruiter Who Went From A Caravan to Millionaire CEO” with Chris O’Connell
Chris O’Connell experienced immense adversity in his childhood, from being abandoned by his mother aged three, being left alone in the caravan in which he was being raised, to spending years in the foster care system, to getting up at 5am every morning to accompany his Dad to work at his job on the railways…
From a very early age, Chris learned he had to fend for himself, and that life wasn’t going to dish out any easy passes.
But it was that raw survival instinct that made him the top global biller at the SThree Group, and a millionaire in his twenties.
This is a fascinatingly candid story of how all of us can overcome adversity if we really have the desire to do so, but it’s also a stark reminder of the long term effects that such a start in life can have on us.
A very special thank you to Chris O’Connell for sharing his incredibly brave and honest life story, in “The Recruiter Who Went From A Caravan to Millionaire CEO” which should serve as an inspiration to all Recruiters out there.
