So, you need a sales guy.

I don't think I've ever met a self-described "business guy" who wasn't a student.

If someone is a great salesman, they are a "sales guy". If they write ads, they are a "marketing guy". If they allocate capital, hire and fire, and lobby the CEO for more funds they are "managers".

When people say "business", it means they don't know what they are able to do, but want to make money. Or that they want to be the manager, but don't want to say it.

I don't know how a student could call himself a Business Developer and keep a straight face.

What does that make the CEO?

The "whatever the hell I need to do to make you and this business successful" guy.

The guy that talks to other CEOs, goes to CEO conferences, decides on strategic development and signs deals.

You forgot to mention the golfing.

Same thing.

"The guy that goes to jail."
