CEOs On A Mission In 2024


2024 is shaping up to be a BIG year. Here are ten inspiring CEOs and Entrepreneurs who are expected to make a major impact in their respective fields this year. These are real change-makers with a mission to empower and inspire others on a global scale. 

Alex Hormozi

Alex Hormozi is a first-generation Iranian American entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist. 

In 2013, Alex started his first brick-and-mortar business. Within three years, he had successfully scaled his business to six locations. He then sold these locations to transition to the turnaround business, spending two years turning over 32 brick-and-mortar businesses using the same model that made his privately owned locations successful.

After this experience, he packaged his process into a licensing model which scaled to over 4000 locations in just four years. Over that same four-year period, he founded and scaled three other companies to $120M+ in cumulative sales across four different industries (software, service, e-commerce, and brick-and-mortar), without taking on any outside capital. Alex has since scaled and exited seven companies, with the most notable exit being his majority sale of his licensing company for $46.2M in 2021.

He transitioned from CEO to the Owner/Shareholder position in these companies in 2020 and founded to invest his own wealth (both monetary and intellectual capital) into other businesses. The portfolio is based on his investment thesis and focuses on asset-light, high cash flow, sales-focused services, and digital products businesses.

As a result of all of this success, Alex is known for his expertise in customer acquisition and monetization. He also donates much of his free time to advancing equal access to education and encouraging entrepreneurship in underprivileged communities.

Alex graduated from Vanderbilt University Magna Cum Laude in three years with a BS in Human & Organizational Development with a focus on Corporate Strategy. He worked as a management consultant for a boutique strategy firm for two years after graduating before starting his first business.

Sendurai Mani

Sendurai A. Mani is an Indian American oncologist and a Molecular Biologist. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, and Dean’s Chair for Translational Oncology at Brown University Warren Alpert Medical School. 

Cancer stem cells are responsible for metastasis, chemoresistance, and tumour relapse. Sendurai was the first to demonstrate that cancer can make more cancer stem cells by reactivating an embryonic program known as epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). The EMT program allows them to survive better in the blood and establish a metastasis histopathologically like that of the parental primary tumour. 

In a highly influential article, Dr Mani and his colleagues identified various novel attributes of metastatic cancer cells and provided the foundation and an explanation for the presence of cellular plasticity within the tumour. Dr. Mani and his team at Brown University continue to investigate ways to target cancer stem cells and prevent metastasis and chemoresistance by understanding their biology.

Dr. Mani spoke at TEDx Providence in 2023 about “Why do people get cancer, how it spreads, and how to prevent it?”.  Dr. Mani co-founded both SathGen Biotech, a subdivision of Godavari Biorefineries, with Mr. Samir Somaiya of Somaiya Group, Mumbai, India, and Iylon Precision Oncology with Dr. Sewanti Limaye.

Cass Morrow

Today he goes by Cass, but just four years ago, he was Ryan. And Ryan had no idea how to deal with a sexless marriage as a man. 

Cass remembers how his wife Kathryn “served” him, but he was settling for less and less intimacy in their marriage. The space between them was getting larger – she was never fully present and they no longer connected when having sex.

His relationship with his wife was full of thousands of “the talks” which always went backwards in time, but never far enough to when the sex was great. Things would always improve for a few days or weeks, and then switch back to the newest normal – further from true passion, connection, and intimacy with Kathryn.

Until one day Kathryn hit Cass with what he remembers as, the Blessing and the Curse. “I’m not attracted to you. I’m not IN love with you, and I’m settling”. Cass was angry but it clicked. If she was just going to stay with him to keep their family together and wasn’t interested in him anymore, she wasn’t exactly motivated to fix their sex life. So, Cass got to work.

With over two decades of working almost exclusively with women, Cass felt so embarrassed to have almost lost Kathryn. He was determined to not only save his marriage but re-light the fire he knew was in his wife. Cass catalogued everything he could remember from working with women, beat up dozens of books, took multiple courses and hired coaches and mentors. 

After creating transformation in his marriage, Cass went on to build his own complete course, covering what other resources were missing and using it to mentor men: The More Sex BETTER SEX Marriage Reset. Now, after only a few months on social media, he has begun making waves. Kathryn and Cass are determined to revolutionize Marriage. It’s their purpose, and mission to save other marriages too.

Cass looks forward to inspiring you and showing you a better way in your marriage too. Go get your wife!
