The #1 motivational speaker in the world, Eric Thomas, is the keynote speaker at Macoupin County's CEO event, B.O.L.D., Business Outreach & Leadership Development conference, on February 14th. Pete Visintin, Macoupin County's CEO Facilitator, invited our CEO class to attend as he spoke during class time on Monday. Four other speakers will lead the breakout sessions. They are: Jim Allen, Cheryl Mitchell, Chris Hartsook and Cyndi Zlotow. For more information visit Macoupin County CEO page.

Pete shared his story and asked students, "What does your bubble look like?" Looking back on his life, Pete wished he would have gotten out of his bubble sooner. The formula for success is:

Get Out of your Bubble = Money + Happiness

Pete encouraged students to get out of their bubble, learn soft skills, network and make connections, get experience, read, make choices and try new things. Put the pedal to the metal while you have no risks. If you don't get out of your bubble, you will have to pick up the crumbs.

Pete shared the why and how he started his non profit, Fight the Fight. He sells clothing that inspires people and he helps people pay their hospital bills. He started his business by selling at vendor and craft fairs and used social media to advertise these events. He now sells 100% online.

Thank you, Pete, for sharing your story and we look forward to attending your B.O.L.D. conference.
