“Don’t sweat the small stuff. You can never please everyone 100% of the time. Learn how to push out the toxicity and focus on what matters.”

This past Monday, CEO had the pleasure of visiting with the Mayor of the Village of Glen Carbon: Bob Marcus!

Bob is not only the Mayor of Glen Carbon, he is partner at The Gori Law Firm and father of one of our current CEO students, Caroline Marcus!

In addition to treating our crew to a delicious breakfast and awesome swag, Mayor Marcus shared how the Village of Glen Carbon operates, a glimpse into what a day in his life looks like and shared his life experiences leading up to where he is today.

Fun fact: in high school, Bob would have said there was a 0% chance he would have ended up planting roots in southern Illinois! Now, he is a leader in our amazing community! His life advice?

• It is OK to have no clue what you want to do for the rest of your life in high school. Be open to new ideas. Get involved in different experiences. Don’t settle for a job you don’t like.

• Life is all about relationships and communication. Most of the time, people just want to be heard. Be willing to take the time to really listen to what others are sharing with you – the good, bad and in between.

• Don’t sweat the small stuff. You can never please everyone 100% of the time. Learn how to push out the toxicity and focus on what matters.

In addition, students had the chance to get a brief tour of the Glen Carbon police department, tour a squad car with Lt. Miller and hear from Public Safety Administrative Supervisor Coleen Schaller.

Thank you for rolling out the red carpet for our Edwardsville CEO crew this week! We immensely enjoyed our visit!
