Guide us, oh fearless leader!
As the President of a manufacturing company, you sit at the top of the pyramid, and there’s two ways to get there: either climb your way to the top of a company, or build the company yourself.
Either way, it’s a long road to great success, but it’s well worth the hard yards it takes to get there. And as an added bonus, you get to set the direction of the company, pursuing the innovations that inspire you, and that you think will make a difference to the future of the world. With this power comes great responsibility though, as the decisions you make affect all the people you employ, and their families. Day to day, you might be pulled in 100 different directions, having to review financials, appease a board, approve marketing decisions, ensure operations are at peak productivity, and manage long-time customers. It can be tough being the Owner of a large operation like a manufacturing company, but the responsibility also offers great rewards! If this is the path for you, you’re in the same league as people like Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and even the craft brewer up the street.
