"We credit this recognition and this year's success to our franchisees. CEO Focus is blessed with some of the most intelligent, successful, and hardest working individuals in the industry," said Jim Muehlhausen, President of CEO Focus.

CEO Focus franchisee Steve Shaer said, "As a successful business owner and consultant, I thought I had all the tools necessary to start peer groups.  I had a bit more to learn.  There are literally hundreds of little details necessary to properly create and facilitate CEO peer groups.  Plugging into the CEO Focus model saved me years of learning things the hard way.  Plugging into resources such as The Business Model Institute and The Business Model Evaluator have helped me grow my business."
