It’s no secret that everyone wants to be the CEO. A search for “CEO” on LinkedIn pulls up 8.6 million U.S-based users who claim to hold the title of Chief Executive Officer. Interestingly enough, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there are only 195,530 CEOs in the United States.
Why is it that everyone wants to claim this glorious title? Mostly, it’s because of media sensitization. Every day we hear about how the average CEO among the largest 3,000 companies in the U.S. earns $7.4 million a year. Through television, internet, business news, and every other form of media – we’re constantly shown the glamorous life of some genius CEO that launched a startup and took it public in 2 years.
With so many perks, why would anyone not want to be Director? Ask any successful CEO and they’ll tell you the same answer – because it’s one tough ass job.
Before you change your LinkedIn job position to Chief Executive Officer of XYZ, let’s talk about what the job of CEO really entails.
