Hard work and dedication is something that you have to have if you want to succeed as an entrepreneur in the business world. At an early age Louis Chenevert knew that the business life is what he wanted to step foot into. He also knew that if he wanted to become successful then he would have to work extremely hard to bring himself to the top. He says it is not how you start out in life, it is how you end your life. Starting out his life his family was like any other not the wealthiest bunch, but they had each other and to them that was enough. As Louis grew though, he knew he wanted to become successful later in life. So, he set out to do just that.
Louis Chenevert attended school and received a degree in production management. Production management basically oversees everything in a company to make sure that the company remains successful. They make sure that the products are made at a quick pace, made with the best resources available, and that there are enough products made. Having this degree helped him to quickly land a job with General Motors. At General Motors, he was determined to help the company continue to grow their success, as well as move up his rank within the company. He worked hard day in and day out and grew a very strong knowledge about assembly lines and what it takes to make sure they run efficiently. He soon decided that although he liked his job with General Motors he wanted more. He moved from the auto assembly industry into a job within the aerospace industry.
Within his first year at Pratt and Whitney, he cut production times by over ten percent. He did this by bringing in his knowledge of assembly lines. He worked hard within this company, and soon enough was able to actually run the company. When he took over running the company they were not doing as much production as they would have liked. But, soon after he took the reigns he began to make them profitable again! So, as you can see, as long as you work hard and have a determination about where you want to be in life, you can make any dream become a reality.
