CEO is considered to be the most least understood jobs in the world. People think a CEO can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants.

A CEO not only raises fund but increase the business by adding money through its working and taking it to a higher level.
CEO’s have power and salary, but there are only a few of them who do what they are supposed to do. A CEO is responsible for the success and failures of a company. A CEO is also responsible for operations, marketing, finance, human resource, legal regulations, strategy implementation, sales, etc. A CEO has to mainly develop a culture in the organisation which would help in its smooth working. Also a CEO has to work with the top management of the organisation not only to develop strategies but to show them in which direction and how the strategy should be placed.
