Student Journal Quotes:

"He said “neither success nor failure is permanent” and I interpret this to mean that hard work will both end your failure and prolong your success."

"But this program continues to open our eyes to the highs and lows that come with business and life in general. Daily our eyes are opened to lessons that we likely wouldn’t have learned for years. So many adults are telling us that we’re going to be so far ahead, so wise beyond our years. I don’t think they see that sometimes it’s sad. It’s sad to shed innocence and see the reality and harshness of failure that comes with success. At the same time, it’s a great relief to be able to see the world as it really is."

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Jasper County CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 0 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 5 people.

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.
