But why are you here?

I have redirected all links from my old site to this new one. Here’s why:

A health issue in late 2015 forced me to curtail all on-site consulting and financial services. I am no longer affiliated with a brokerage firm and my income tax service has ceased operation. I formally dissolved Acumen Consulting LLC with the Secretary of State, as required by state law. The website now redirects here, to my new company named simply Acumen Consulting.

Acumen Consulting provides information for small businesses through articles and eBooks. I evaluate and recommend products based on their suitability for solo entrepreneurs and small businesses, and provide affiliate links for some of those products. I earn a commission for each purchase made after clicking those links. That is how I support the continuing research and this website.

Acumen Advisor is also provided here. It is a month to month service providing free PC health monitoring. It is free. It also provides additional optional services, such as patch management (updating of all your software in the background) and managed anti-malware / anti-virus coverage for $10 per month. Acumen Advisor is suitable for the solo entrepreneur who has one or two computers to protect. Other options will be less expensive for protecting more devices, and I provide information on award winning solutions from companies such as Avira, Emsisoft, F-Secure, MalwareBytes and Panda.

HOSTkabob is my specialty WordPress web hosting company specializing in small business web hosting. Sites are set up and configured by me, and all updates applied each week as needed, allowing you to focus on your content.

So there you have it. The reason you are here is that you are no longer there. As the bus driver in Buckaroo Bonzai said, “no matter where you go, there you are.”
