18-Year-Old Black High School Graduate Launches Podcast and Book About Becoming a CEO

Mychal Connolly Jr, author of Realistic CEO book

Nationwide — Mychal Connolly Jr., known affectionately as Mikey, embarked on his entrepreneurial journey with a powerful message: Dreams come true. And dreams are meant to be pursued. During his senior year of high school, his teacher told him it was “unrealistic” for him to be a CEO. From the age of 10, Mikey had aspired to be a CEO, and he responded by asserting that it is realistic.

Now on his Realistic CEO Podcast, Mikey holds interview conversations with successful Founders, CEOs, Presidents, Business Owners, Executives, and Community Leaders to learn from them what it takes to be a successful CEO. He and his father also co-wrote a book entitled I Am a CEO. Realistic CEO, based on his story, to help people never give up on their dreams, no matter what.

Mikey is more than just a budding entrepreneur; he is also an avid basketball player and video game enthusiast. These interests have honed his strategic thinking and team-building skills, essential traits for any aspiring CEO.

To further enhance his skills, Mikey is preparing to study communication and journalism in college. Complementing his academic pursuits, he has launched RealisticCEO.com, a website dedicated to honing his communication and journalism skills. The site serves as a platform to share his learnings and guide others on their journey to becoming a CEO.

A standout goal for Mikey is to interview basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal on his podcast, blending his passion for sports with his entrepreneurial spirit. This ambitious aim underscores Mikey’s commitment to bridging his interests with his professional aspirations.

Through his various initiatives, Mikey not only aims to achieve his own CEO ambitions but also empowers his peers to envision and work towards their own success. His journey serves as a testament to the power of dreams and the importance of perseverance.
