A chief executive devises strategies and policies to ensure that an organization meets its goals. They plan, direct, and coordinate operational activities of companies and public or private-sector organizations. Top executives work in nearly every industry. They work for both large and small organizations, ranging from one-person businesses to firms with thousands of employees. The job can be very stressful, and top executives often work long hours.

Spencer Thompson wants to be a Chief Executive

Being a CEO is not the same as being an entrepreneur. An entrepreneur is a mindset you are in, not the action you are taking. The role that I play day to day is that of a CEO. That consists of three main things:

1. Setting the vision for the company
2. Recruiting the best possible people for the company
3. Making sure there is enough money in the bank & that fiduciary responsibilities to shareholders are met.

Besides these three items - I spend the majority of my time working on product development & processes. Most of this boils down to design, which we care about deeply here at Sokanu.
