Today Drew Garretson, of CERES Solutions Cooperative, was our CEO guest speaker.

Drew did an excellent job of sharing 5 keys to life success:

1 - Don’t be a complainer. Negativity is draining and it unfavorably impacts the moral of those you live and work with. It can also define who you are as a person and can be socially and professionally damaging. Be optimistic!
2 - Equation of Karma: Pay it forward, be nice, be respectful, be helpful and make people feel good. Reap what you sow.
3 - Surround yourself with the kind of people you desire to become. The 5 people you spend most of your time with will have the most influence on your behavior and your career.
4. Life is stressful and can feel overwhelming at times. However, life will not give you more than you can handle. So when you are feeling overwhelmed, just know that you can, and will, overcome.
5 - The way you communicate to people is far more important than degrees. Polish your communication skills and focus on how you make others feel.

Drew also gave each student a unique topic and ask them to develop and deliver a 30 second presentation on their assigned topic. It was an excellent exercise in public speaking and Drew provided each student with feedback.

Big thanks to Drew Garretson for his willingness to share business wisdom and valuable lessons with our CEO students!
