Student Application Deadline!

Student Journal Highlights for this week

During this week, we went to AmericInn and had Mayor Davies come and give us some insight to what he does. We also started our business plans and learned balance sheet stuff along with financial statements. I feel like Mayor Davies gave each of us good advice. He told me that I should try to reduce my beginning costs by renting my equipment at first.

I had never gone into a hotel and seen the business side of it, other than in the game Monopoly. It was amazing to go into all the rooms and being told the difference between them. I absolutely loved how they spoke about the small details that no one thinks about. The thing about this hotel was that they were owned by one person, but that person was paying someone else to tell the hotel what to do. I also was intrigued by the way they spoke, trying to sell themselves and they pointed it out. By the end of it, we all wanted to stay there. They showed true hospitality and showed us that in order to get people, we have to treat them the best we can and do what is right.

Getting the “templates” for all these different things we need to do is so helpful. I understand better how everything is to work and it helps me feel more invested in my business.

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 Warren 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 18 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 23 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
