Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Non-Profit Organization in Muskegon:
Pros: The Boys and Girls Club allows me to be the energetic and outgoing person I am. The Club gives me the ability to work in teams, forge relationships, as well as to give others direction and inspiration. Experience in the field and learning from senior Boys & Girls Club leaders has lead me to understand the importance of goals and the steps necessary to achieve them. The hard work and dedication it has taken to lead two start up club organizations has made me fearless in never being scared to go the extra mile to ensure the success of a project. The club gives me the ability to build and cultivate relationships, which is one of my greatest qualities and proven to be a necessity to the growth of any new organizations.
Cons: The Boys & Girls Club has many rewards but every reward comes with a price. Often times you can feel all alone, as the CEO position is often stuck between the board and the staff. A person in this position must have a entrepreneur spirit and the understanding that success comes with commitment. Often times commitment means putting yourself last, working unsustainable hours and missing out on a personal life. In a start up club with a low budget the CEO often must be a jack of all trades. It is important to mentally reset yourself every now and then, as well as continue living a healthy lifestyle. Burn out can easily set in for those who do not mentally prepare themselves.
