Preface by Robby Meadows:
Although we usually do not publish our personal lives to the world, I think this merits the exception. Chuck Wilson, CEO of Nashville Wraps has for the last few years provided us with a blueprint of how to deal admirably with such challenges as brain cancer. Chuck’s spirit is a good example of the type of company he has helped Nashville Wraps to become through his personal experience and mentor-ship.
Chuck’s Excellent Adventure by C.A. Wilson, CEO Nashville Wraps
After nearly 65 years of living I look back and see that life is a series of adventures. Some are more exciting than others but all offer us the opportunity to learn something valuable, and the most difficult experiences yield the most important lessons. For example, as a 17 year old Midshipman I learned the secrets of leadership: never lie to the troops; always feed the troops first; and never ask someone to do what you haven’t done or wouldn’t be willing to do. Hard days for a boy, but one of the most important lessons I ever learned.
For the last 11 years I have had the privilege of serving as the CEO of Nashville Wraps. It has been and is a wonderful experience. Seven years ago my life took another turn and a new adventure began. This one is the hardest that I have ever faced, but is also the most rewarding.
