Sharpen. Challenge. Inspire.

An exclusive community of CEO/Owners to help you grow your top line, optimize your bottom line, and enrich your storyline.

Better decisions. More success. In business and in life.

Leadership is a challenging and lonely endeavor involving long hours, difficult decisions, and being the final word on everything. In this “every man and woman for themselves” world, you’ve probably realized: there is no playbook for CEOs and business owners. But what if there was a group of leaders just like you who were committed to helping each other maximize their impact on their customers, employees, suppliers, and community?

Welcome to Acumen. Sharpen your edge.

I always come back with a list of things to share with my leadership team and implement. My council has become a huge factor in my life in so many ways. It’s a key thing I have on my schedule. How could I miss it?

Acumen was an expense line we knew we couldn’t do without. The return on investment is multiple from a financial standpoint, but even more importantly, the return on impact personally has been exponential.
