According to the US Census, out of the 325.7 million citizens currently residing across the nation, there are approximately 70.1 million people who are also fathers. Indeed, fatherhood is an exclusive aspect of life. It should be cherished, revered, and planned for so that the child is able to grow up in a nurturing environment. It’s universally understood that to be a CEO is demanding and so is being a guardian. Balancing the two roles can be even more demanding, but Jeff manages to do an outstanding job.
Not everyone is able to experience fatherhood, but those that do often describe it along the lines of, “…the best thing that ever happened to me.” Sigmund Freud, renowned psychologist, philosopher, and author, asserts that, “I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” Jeff couldn’t agree more as fatherhood has shown Jeff firsthand just how much every child needs a role model, and Jeff is happy to be there for other kids.
Clarence Budington Kelland, famed American author of the mid-20th century was quoted saying, “My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” How wonderful it is to be able to lead by example. Leading by example is no easy feat, but it can be done by a seasoned and self-disciplined leader like Jeff Schneider. Whether he’s volunteering his time at a local charitable organization or running a marathon, health seminar, or another community event, Jeffry leads by example. Ultimately, he strives to strengthen communities everywhere.
Jim Valvano, also known as James Thomas Anthony Valvano and Jimmy V, was a college basketball player, coach, and broadcaster in the US during the last half of the 20th Century. He’s quoted on Twitter, “My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” This is certainly touching, and it speaks to something greater: children who have involved role models have a greater sense of self-esteem, and how could they not? Although caring about one’s children often comes easily to a parent, today, it isn’t common to find an individual who does as much as Jeffry Schneider for other people’s children. Jeff knows kids who have role models have a greater sense of self-esteem which is why he makes an effort to be active not only in his kids’ lives, but other kids’ lives too. He believes and highlights that any individual has the power to help a child and that these small choices in the present can support a greater future. Even with all the responsibilities of leading a company and leading a family, Jeffry Schneider still finds time to put others before himself.
