When we think back in history many people forget the people in the early years that struggled to make a living. Milton Hershey is one person that lived a great life coming from being poor to becoming one of the wealthiest man of his time. He took matters into his own hands since a very young age and created his own company.

He set up shop in Lancaster, PA. He started his company as a carmel company and sold it for 1 Million dollars with the focus of switching to chocolate. He later turned it into the biggest business' in the food industry. This shows that taking a risk is sometimes worth it.

When you think of successful entrepreneurs, you're probably not thinking of one from Kenya. John Kithaka is an architect that started a small business and has grown ever since. He is currently the CEO of the Fountain Enterprise Programme (FEP). This group is made up of 18,000 Kenyan shareholders and has made investments in 14 companies worth over $18 million.

John is a very motivated person and knows what it takes to be very successful. As he states in the article. "we need people who don't think of just being a pilot but owning the plane." He also says that its basically impossible to make a billion dollars, and that is why he works so hard at his craft. He states that,"You need wisdom in what you are doing such that 70 years from now you you will have a solid base. In your mind, you should make sure that your business will not collapse in your old age."

When you are a manager, a huge responsibility is being put on your shoulders. When you want to lead a company, there are other things that play into that. Being in the manager spot is something some people don't take seriously enough. If you are a manager do not look down toward lower staff and people below you, just because you are a manger doesn't mean you are better than that person. You were put in the position to lead the business and that should be your main goal.
Brian Kissel's comment, March 6, 2014 10:21 AM
There are always new ways of managing and new ways to do stuff. There's always going to be new technology and employees coming and going. Although it is a tough cycle to do all this, sometimes change is good. Some employees may like the change and be motivated to do better. You really have the sell what has changed and get everyone to buy into what the company has changed. When this happens, a company will succeed and do very well.

When managing a small business, you can't take it lightly and think it is easy. Just because you are the only person in charge, you can't take it lightly. You need to run your business as if you were running a high end corporation. If you do run a small business, make sure you have a solid staff and know them well. They are depending on you, and you are depending on them.

As a manager many important decisions come down to you. When it comes down to it, you truly have to do what's best for not only the company but yourself included. Never over or under estimate the decision, always take everything into consideration, and never just do something just to do it. You have to think everything through and give it some time. All in all you have to consider what is going to be best to keep everything working smoothly and the best for the company.

When you think back on people that have been successful as CEOs, Steve Jobs probably comes to mind. Steve was the CEO of Apple Inc. and led the company to be one of the best in the electronics business. As it states in the article, Jobs has the passion, intensity, and emotion to do his job every single day.
Brian Kissel's comment, April 2, 2014 10:31 AM
His employees cared about him so much, and showed so many characteristics to be a true leader. Jobs always stressed the importance of the word "focus". He ignored any distraction and focused on what was important to him. He was so motivated at what he did and it showed by how successful the company is today.

Becoming the best CEO isn't the easiest thing to do. It requires leading a huge staff while still doing the right things. Many people over look this type of position and look past what this person does. It is important to have a good CEO or leader in a big company.
Brian Kissel's comment, March 28, 2014 10:22 AM
Steve Jobs was one person that people always said was a good CEO. Not only did he lead a huge company, but he did it in the hard times too. During recession, you saw his company succeed and was one of the top companies in the industry. Although he is no longer with us, he has truly built a huge empire in the technology world.

When running a business, there are always laws and rules you have to comply by. There is a huge legal aspect with wages & hours. If you have underdeveloped operations, it could really hurt your business. You need to look at work procedures, goals, planning, staffing, and training and other things to succeed.
Brian Kissel's comment, March 13, 2014 9:40 AM
Other aspects play into the way you are growing as a business. Declining product and poor service is just a recipe for failure for any business. You need to break it all down and focus on those things because in the end, your reputation as a business is on the line. If you can't do the basics as a manager, you once again for setting yourself up for failure. If you lack in collecting data, decision-making and management overall, then you will obviously not do well.

Managing your employees may seem simple, but there is a lot that goes into it. You have to follow certain guidelines not only set by the company, but the government. You need to have everything set straight from anti-discrimination and certain standards your employees should follow. You need to be cautious of procedures and companies like OSHA for safety and security. With this come a great responsibility in your employees and you need to follow strict rules, if you have your employees follow these, then your company will do well.

Being a leader is key if you are going to be a manager. Leaders have to have certain traits to be good in the field. You have to be able to deal with stress and always be energetic. You never want to be to dominant or too self-centered. Always interact with staff and accompany them if all possible. No leader just has these traits, it is something that you have to adapt to as a leader and progress with as a manager.
