Dear CEO Community,
As CEO is coming to an end, I would like to thank Sheri, our investors, the board, and our mentors for putting up with my chaos. Throughout the year, we toured many different businesses, but the one that stood out the most was Hartrich Meats. They provided us with some of their delicious bacon, and we got to watch a cow get harvested. My favorite guest speaker was Jeremy Wilson because of his passion and enthusiasm for his career; and his love for crazy socks. Almost every Monday we read a chapter from Things You Wish You Knew Yesterday by Craig Lindvahl. The whole book was extremely informative, and I would recommend it to anyone, but my favorite chapter was “Nobody Cares About The Storm”. This chapter just sums up the fact that no one cares about your excuses, they just want things they want done to be done. During the Micro and Class Business, my classmates and I got to work as a team to run a successful business. When working with my classmates, I gained experience in making compromises and learned how to collaborate efficiently with a group. The CEO program really improved my time management as well as my public speaking skills. Very early, the CEO class taught me to learn from others and learn from your own mistakes. If you are afraid of making mistakes and asking others for help, you are not going to succeed. Despite all of the hard work and the occasional arguments with my classmates, I enjoyed every moment of the CEO program. However, if I had to pick one thing that I will miss the most it would be the tours that we went on. Learning from business professionals and learning the tools needed to succeed was the most thrilling part of CEO.
For next year’s CEO students, I recommend that they make their individual business something they will enjoy. If you make your business related to something of your interest, it makes the learning and the overall experience so much easier.
Sincerely,
Wilson McWilliams-Conley, Class of 2019
