Welcome back to the University Recruiters podcast! In this episode, we sit down with Jeff Marin, CEO of University Recruiters and the Jeffery Agency who has made a living teaching LinkedIn and building his own successful business. Jeff shares his insights on teaching work ethic, imparting good habits to kids, and balancing a busy career with being a parent.
Jeff reflects on his own upbringing and how his parents’ divorce affected his communication skills. He emphasizes the importance of overcompensating with his own children, making sure they always feel valued and loved. He even shares how he makes a point to let his kids know he’s thinking about them, even when he’s away from home.
Julia notes that both Jeff and her co-host Gino share a strong work ethic, which they aim to instill in their children. Jeff explains that he always makes sure his daughters know what he does and why he does it, and that they come first no matter what he’s working on. He knows his children are watching him and he wants to set a positive example, even with something as simple as treating an Uber driver with respect.
Jeff also talks about his career journey, starting in finance and eventually moving on to build his own business. He reflects on how having children changed his priorities and taught him the importance of having a flexible schedule. Both Jeff and Gino emphasize the importance of having a supportive spouse when making the switch from a traditional job to an entrepreneurial lifestyle.
