BF Brumfiel

Barney Brumfiel

"The numbers tell a story."

From his 30 years of experience in the Small Business Development Center, Mr. Brumfiel has gained a vast knowledge of what formula creates a successful business. His expertise gave students a detailed understanding of the financial side of the business plan as well an overall view of the information found within one. Students were most excited by the spreadsheet he created that made setting up the financials much easier. We apprecaite Barney taking the time to speak and educate students. By guiding students through a mock business plan, he created the foundation as we continue through our own process of writing one.

Network Scholarship

Colton Angel and Monica Greisemer

Colton Angel, former CEO student, and Monica Greisemer from Indiana State University, spoke with students on the Network Financial Institute for the Scott College of Business. The opportunities offered within the Networks Program include, but are not limited to, corporate industry visits, paid internships, international travel, mentorship and skill development. We appreciate Colton and Monica sharing not only about this scholarship opportuinity but also about college life in general. 

Monica gave students two tips for getting all college has to offer: "Become comfortable with the uncomfortable" and "Keep in touch with your passions". 

Colton reminded students "You're your own business. Market yourself well on social media." In regards to college, he said, "Develop a good relationship with your professor and participate in class."

Business Plan Development

Taking the role of a loan committee, students had the opportunity to browse through a business plan. What they did not understand, they researched. Not only will students write a business plan for their class business, they are responsible for writing a business plan for individual businesses as well. They also spent time researching business plans written for a business comparable to that of their individual business.

Prep Day

Student recruitment for next year's CEO class is already in full swing as the class prepares to present to the students of NCHS. Interested students are encouraged to visit a class day or speaker day at the Chamber Building as well as speak to former and current CEO students. Packets will soon be available in the NCHS office. Watch our social media for more information!

Student Journal Highlights for this week

Lanette Huddlestun is so active and does so much for our community. I am still amazed that she is able to do all the things that she does and still have time for her family. She was a really good speaker for me too, since we are possibly going to be doing a nonprofit company. I really hope that we can get a lot of people for our company and we can really make a difference in town; so far I have only heard good responses from adults saying that they would want their kids in our class. Hopefully it works out, and I can use my passion and knowledge about computers to help our community and prepare these kids for their future.

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.
