Touring St. Francis Hospital, Litchfield

with Sara Beck and Meghan Bertolino
Meghan Bertolino invited CEO to tour of St. Francis Hospital, Litchfield, where the team explored the hospital's services and community outreach programs. Sarah Beck participated in the tour and answered questions related to quality control, managing administrative costs, and patient (customer) care. Aryn Hunter demonstrated the hospital's progressive approach to training with the hospital's high tech simulation patients. Team members also sat in on the leadership team meeting where team leads introduced themselves and explained how their role helps the hospital accomplish its mission and vision to provide the best care for their patients.

Building a Trusted Business with the IRS' Blessing

with Debbie Held
Debbie Held visited CEO to explain what the IRS expects from small business owners. Debbie was very candid and open about the challenges and opportunities for small businesses to keep their financial accounting in line with tax laws while also building their profits. "For starters, you should keep your business account and personal account separate." Debbie explained that it is easier to keep a "fence" between one's personal finances and business finances than to confuse the two and lose financial integrity. Also, she continued, it is important to "keep track of your [business] mileage and your [company] receipts." Team members asked questions related to personal income taxes, understanding taxes related to company profits, and the tax and filing jargon related to tax forms and deadlines.

    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 Montgomery 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 13 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 18 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

    About Me

    Grant is a student athlete at Hillsboro High school who aspires to extend his business knowledge and create a strong foundation for a professional career. While in school Grant’s main interests have included working for Eisentraut theatres in downtown Hillsboro, student council, school musicals and assorted sports. He began to study business when his mother opened a fabric store in 2014 which was open for three years before being sold. His mother’s experience in dealing with manufacturers and retail suppliers peaked his interest in both sales and manufacturing. Grant was attracted to CEO because the class tours local businesses and learns through an experienced based educational curriculum. He admits, the opportunity to create his own business was also very intriguing. Grant hopes to utilize his charismatic nature and develop a communication centered product for his business.
