Chad Peda is the CEO and founder of The Entrepreneurs Collaborative, and brings to the table over 30 years of entrepreneurial experience.
Chad’s love of business began when he was just 12 years old, when he took on the task of truly understanding and trading baseball cards. He learned everything needed to succeed, including studying all the players, knowing the ins and outs of the game, and the strategy that lies beneath it all. What started as a hobby, led Chad down a road of entrepreneurial discovery.
By the time Chad Peda was 15 years old, he opened his own retail store selling various handmade leather goods that he himself crafted, and marketing them alongside other merchandise to ultimately move overall sales forward. Even at a young age, Chad recognized the need to take action at the right time in order to succeed at his business. This was just the beginning of what led to dozens of retail stores across the midwest and Eastern US.
If you ask Chad what the keys of success are for entrepreneurs, he would tell you hard work, determination, perseverance, and stubbornness. With over 30 years of experience in various entrepreneurial endeavors, you can certainly take his word for it. Chad believes the lessons you learn in business are never lost, they stay with you, ingrained into each new life and business endeavor.
Of course, the path of an entrepreneur can sometimes (almost always) be a bumpy one. Facing challenges and adversity in the field of business is just the name of the game when you have as much experience as Chad Peda does. This only further proves Chad’s drive and determination to overcome each adversity, and learn from it.
One of his key beliefs is “Do things the right way, at the right time and for the right reasons.” This is something Chad Peda has believed and embodied in his entrepreneurial and business endeavors.
Now, Chad has the ability to live his passion daily through supporting aspiring and active entrepreneurs through The Entrepreneurs Collaborative. Through his new project, Chad can provide the necessary resources and guidance needed to fellow entrepreneurs in order to help them achieve success in their business, while creating an everlasting network.
