CEO: Back to Business

CEO Business Visits

Level 4 Wealth Management

Bridget Schneider and Joe Globensky

Joe Globensky and Bridget Schneider came in representing Level 4 Wealth Management. As the students are heading into individual businesses and life in general, having a basic understanding on how to manage money is extremely important. Joe, Bridget, and the class spoke on retirement savings and the overall idea of paying yourself first. They also emphasized on their business partnership and how each of their personalities balance the other. After discussing on how important that is in any operation, they left us with the idea that your financial investments will have ups and downs, but when it does, stay focused on the future and ride it out.  

Management Consulting

Harlan Geiser

Harlan Geiser came in with some great information for the CEO members’ individual businesses and how to be the best leader. He interacted with the students to talk about their individual business along with leadership and what they truly want out of CEO. The way he defined leadership is someone others choose to follow, which is the perfect way to look at it. He suggested everyone do ten minutes of deep thinking a day to better themselves and to see the big picture of things. This can help with individual businesses and finding the right ideas. Harlan guided the students toward achieving their business goals and getting results.

Mentor Day

Seth Goodman, Chris Beard, Janell Woolard

On Tuesday, some of the student mentors were in class to speak to the students about their ideas for individual businesses. Seth Goodman, Chris Beard, and Janell Wollard helped the class hone in on their ideas. With so many original ideas, the students have a lot of figuring out to do, whether they are thinking about the upcoming trade show or any legal issues that need dealt with, there is a lot of exciting opportunities ahead. The students will be taking a trip to the Effingham County CEO group business conference to also give them some new ideas and inspiration!

Janell Woolard

St. Clara's Rehab and Senior Care Center

CEO mentor and St. Clara’s Community Relations coordinator, Janell Woolard, explained the process of making advancements and thoughtful accommodations to the facility in order to ensure that the residents have a happy and peaceful living experience while getting the most advanced rehabilitation care possible.

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 Land of Lincoln 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 9 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 14 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.

If you are interested in participating in any of the above programs, use our contact form to send us a message
