Navigating Personal Finances

Amy Pate

Amy does a skillful of job of walking us through how we can better understand and manage our personal finances. "Eat out as a treat, not a lifestyle; it's better for your bank account and your health." "There are needs, wants and unexpected emergencies; know the difference between a need and a want." "A budget is simply telling your money what to do."

Meet Erika Pate

Western High School

My name is Erika Pate and I am a senior at WHS. I played varsity soccer for three years and I participated in unified track for two. I am also a member of the Nat'l Honor Society and volunteer at Oakbrook Church. Outside of school I like to run or ride my bike on the Monon Trail in Carmel, where I live. My business is Erika’s Kreations that specializes in hand-painted coffee mugs. I will attend Indiana U. Bloomington in the fall and major in business and minor in something with art or design. CEO has been an amazing experience that's prepared me for college and life in so many ways!

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Kokomo CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 15 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 20 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.


If you are interested in participating in any of the above programs, use our contact form to send us a message
