"Acumen provides me a great avenue to help other CEO and owners of businesses increase their impact and growth. Acumen fit perfectly with my vision and mission of inspiring, empowering business leaders’ way of life, thinking, and leadership to help them grow as a company and leader, to find more joy and have a bigger impact on those around them.
CEOs & Business Owners have the chance to make so much impact. They are the key that makes cities, communities, and industries come alive. I love when a CEO has that “aha” moment and their vision increases, their joy explodes and they see what and how they do brings so much influence to a community."
There are so many challenges that land in the lap of the one who is in charge…employees, cash flow, industry changes, regulations, and culture. Even when CEOs are at the top of their game, making money, growing their business, and helping their team win they find themselves empty and joyless.
Following a lack of Joy, many CEOs are working hard, beating themselves up to be better, and facing challenges alone. Their staff, neighbors & church community see them as successful and having it all together but these leaders are lonely. They want a group of men and women who understand them, are not impressed by them, a place where they can be honest and real. They want a place to be human and to have fun.
Time on my porch with a cigar talking to my wife and/or walking my dogs…Filled with weekend rides on my Indian Dark Horse motorcycle through the beautiful foothills and windy roads of Colorado.
Watch University of Colorado Football…Look out for Inside Linebacker Jon Van Diest, #31…oh yeah, smoke another cigar.
