"My expectation for my time with CEO is to leave with skills I can use for the rest of my life; with anything I choose to do.  I know sharpening my communication abilities and learning more about the business world will give me the tools to be successful.  CEO can be a key piece of the puzzle for my future."

About My Business

Brianna McDaniel's family is very important to her. For this reason, her CEO business she has decided to produce, Imelda: Generacion de Amor, a Mexican cookbook influenced by her grandmother’s recipes. Brianna says: “I've entitled this in honor of my grandmother, whom I affectionately refer to as mi abuelita. I want to be able to share with others the passion mi abuelita has for family and food.” The book will also include her grandmother’s journey from Mexico, and it’s her legacy of love. Brianna hopes to one day have an impact on others as her grandmother did throughout her life. She will start her own journey by attending Lakeland College for two years, then transferring to a four-year university.
