I met Will Acuff five years ago at the prompting of my good friend Nick Holland. We met to discuss his idea for a non-profit that he and his wife Tiffany wanted to start to create infrastructure for the work they had already been doing in their neighborhood. Five years later and they have graduated hundreds of their neighbors through their “Academy”, a 12-week entrepreneurship program, and have made an economic impact in their neighborhood over $3M dollars a year. This is a truly inspiring story. It touches on race, faith, economics and America. And of course the power of creativity.
