Business Structures

Attorney Craig Weber from Phillips, Cox, Tedford, Weber, Heap and Aires Law Firm visited Jasper CEO on Monday to discuss the different options businesses can elect when setting up and/or growing their businesses. Some of the types he described included but are not limited to: sole proprietorships, partnerships, corportations, and limited liability companies. He explained the reason businesses elect certain ways can include controlling income taxes, limiting liability, and as a way to bring in investors.

Business Management

Jerry McDaniel welcomed us to the board room at his Newton offices to meet our class and discuss the McDaniel family’s business history as well as his personal success and leadership qualities. Jerry comes from a family of entrepreneurs and became CEO of McDaniel Oil at the young age of 20. Jerry continued to expand the family business and has also created and acquired many more successful businesses. He shared with Jasper CEO students his strategies for effective leadership in a multi-company situation and also the importance of relationships in business.

TIF and Enterprise Zones

Another great visit with Ken Larimore on Wednesday as he was back to discuss TIF and Enterprise Zones. As you probably already know, this is a huge topic of discussion across the state of Illinois and our highly aware students wanted to know more. Ken was able to walk us through the basics of each as well as compare and contrast the two.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.
