Is becoming a chief executive hard?

I'm in middle school and taking a career class. I took a survey to see what career paths were recommended and chief executive was one. I would like to know if I am interested in becoming a chief executive. #career #cheifexective

Frank’s Answer

There are two primary ways to become a chief executive, also known as chief executive officer (CEO), and they both take hard work. The first way is to climb the corporate ladder of a company. If you start as an entry level employee, that means working hard to get promoted to higher levels, then into management, and then higher levels of management. It would not be quick or easy to become the CEO, who leads the entire company. The second way is to become an entrepreneur. If you create your own product (like an app), you could create your own company. You would then be the CEO of your own company. CEOs have a lot of responsibility for the company and employees. If this is your long-term goal, I would recommend you make short term goals to get started.
Thank you comment icon I agree with Frank's answer about the 2 paths to take. If you have questions about making goals let us know! Lianna Jackter

Hi Mira - to expand a bit on Frank's excellent answer...Before setting your goal to become a CEO you need to decide in which filed you would like to be a CEO. Banking, Casino, Hotel, Technology, etc. Then set your studies in that path. Then, you work from the ground up. There are a lot of responsibilities that come with a corner office, title and big pay check :-)
