Everyone has New Year's resolutions, and with the current economic climate, many of those resolutions involve regaining employment and financial stability. However, for some, the goal is to stop being an employee and become an entrepreneur. Becoming a business owner can be much harder than many know. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that approximately 20% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 45% during the first five years, and 65% during the first 10 years. Only 25% of new businesses remain in business after 15 years or more. This episode of The Workforce Wire features three extraordinary CEOs who have already taken the leap into entrepreneurship. Not only are these leaders’ entrepreneurs and CEOs, they are also millennials! Join us as we speak with Korey Neal, President of K. Neal Truck & Bus Center, Hope Wiseman, CEO of Mary & Main, and Davion Percy, Managing Director of Percy Public Affairs about their journey to become CEOs, how they balance running a company as young professionals, and what advice and tips they have for the next generation of CEOs.
