I'm not the CEO type. I'm a free spirit! I can't stay in one place too long so I travel. I love my life and wouldn't change it for the world. I can understand those who have the mindset to do such a job and admire the way they can handle the stress in a professional manner. Kudos!

You just have to be willing to lay off experianced workers and hire new graduates still living with parents, cut pay, increase hours without overtime through creative scheduling, cut benefits, enforce strict 12 weeks FMLA limits and continualy remind workers they might not be needed in a very near future. Isn't that what they do whole day? How hard can it be? At the end of the year you get 300 times more pay than your average worker and a big fat bonus for meeting the goals. Easy.

You have to place the almighty dollar above all else - yet have compassion for people/workers. That means firing them while smiling and telling them termination is a great thing for them - and having them believe you.

2.) Be male.
3.) If 1&2 aren't you, locate the nearest shooting star and wish upon it.

Quickest way to CEO is to know someone high up in the company. Otherwise you will have to work your butt off and get lucky.

There are many other ways you can become the man. How about creating some new software that makes the company more efficient or maybe finding a loop hole for a company that makes them millions in a short time. You will be CEO the next day if you were able to pull either of these off.

Build a team to compensate for your shortcomings. Even a seasoned executive needs a sounding board of people who can offer guidance, particularly for areas that fall outside his or her core expertise. For young leaders, this is essential, to avoid serious mistakes. Lack of experience can lead to very painful consequences: hiring the wrong people, spending too much money, getting stuck with bad contract terms, or falling afoul of the law -- to name just a few.

The biggest disadvantage is the lack of a track record, which a potential investor might want to use to evaluate your probability of success. This can be overcome only by spending many hours selling your idea to as many people as will listen to it.

Studies show that all you need is a bachelors degree so that it not asking too much.

When, at age 24, I told my boss (somewhat tongue in cheek) that I wanted to become a CEO, he nearly fell off his chair. It was 1974; I was a software developer working for IBM. At that time, lowly engineers were not expected to aspire to roles reserved for successful salespeople.

Note to Millennials, and anyone else with a frequent urge to change jobs: If you want to be CEO someday, pick an employer where you can see yourself staying for at least 10 years, or possibly a lot longer. Then get ready to hang in there for the long haul.
