HOW WE LEAD
At Accelerated Growth Advisors, we pride ourselves on our distinctive leadership style. Simply put, we believe in servant leadership and that our success is not defined by the number of clients we have or our profits. Success is measured by the number of people that AGA empowers to do great things. Our leadership team is dedicated to ensuring that every member of our team is growing personally and professionally.
Our Core Values: Has a Story, (IQ + Tools)^EQ = Impact, Bad Ass Problem Solver, Authority Not Power, Grow or Go
