Student Spotlight – Chance Ziegler

By: MPISTL | Jan 1, 2018

Chance-Ziegler-photoMPI St. Louis Area Chapter would like to introduce a new student member for our Student Spotlight. Chance Ziegler is a senior at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. He is not only a full-time student, but also a full-time entrepreneur. Chance started his first two businesses while in high school and realized then that he was an entrepreneur at heart. He is president of Forethought Events (an event planning service), Forethought Travel (travel agency), Clairvoyant Media (videography and photography media publishing company), and Late Night Books (self-publishing company).

When asked how he manages four businesses while being a full-time student, Chance replied, “The juggling is very complex, but it’s been like that since high school and I know I just have to really keep track of my time and stay on top of my responsibilities. I have about five calendars, several task lists, and multiple management programs. I also have to constantly coordinate with all the other people involved.”

Chance’s goal is to grow his current business. He wants to build companies where people really want to work, bring some values back to the corporate world and focus on people again. Chance has advice for other up and coming entrepreneurs, “You need to know your community, know what you want to do and what change you want to spark. Do something you’re passionate about – don’t just go into something because that’s the fad. Try to really make a difference. That’s the reason I like hospitality so much, because I like people and I like seeing the changes I can make in individuals’ lives.”

We are excited to welcome Chance Ziegler to MPI St. Louis Area Chapter!
