Acorn Overview

Long term objective: Identify and systematically build toward long term personal and professional fulfillment

Short term objectives: tactics for you

This is a difficult process and I will ask you to reach beyond your comfort zone – many times – always with an eye toward your authentic long term objectives. It is such a privilege for me to work with bright, future captains of industry. My personal objective is to help you uncover your actual long term calling and “your truth” whatever that may mean to you. Tactically speaking we cover at least the following major areas:

Finance (Funding Things):

  • Banking
  • Accounting
  • Opaque Asset classes (Real Estate, Art, etc.)

Operations (Running Things):

  • Industry
  • Consumer
  • Services versus Products
  • Cost Benefit Analysis

Personal Development (Integrating Life and Work):

  • Skills vs Interests
  • Goals vs Objectives
  • Paths forward
  • Graduate school options
  • Tactics

Your Best Life

Less obviously we stress test your hypothesis about what your best life looks like.

You will use the personal insights clarified in 1-1 work to create adaptable action plans. The Acorn program allows me to give you private support to make big jumps – some of which will land with a thud. That’s okay. We do that “here” so you don’t do it out there. This is particularly important if you are expected to take over a family business or portfolio. Either way, this is the environment to work through your hypotheses productively, efficiently. Flops are expected and celebrated as stepping stones. We work on what you need to do to move forward while strengthening your foundation for future-proofing your execution ability.
