Our Calling and Purpose
We are passionate about the potential within people. Whether they are business leaders, stay at home Moms or Dads, elementary school kids or senior citizens, military vets or entrepreneurs, our world is filled with extraordinary people. Everyone is gifted. But it isn’t always easy or obvious to discover all of the ways to realize our dreams and potential to our employers, family, friends or even ourselves.
It is our Calling and Purpose, to encourage and support those who actively seek positive solutions to the challenges inherent in our daily lives. We created the Spiral Thinking process to do just that.
We have used Spiral Thinking techniques to structure and optimize corporate departments, brand hotels, re-invent hospitals and design entire communities. We’ve produced live entertainment shows and events for millions and developed projects for Presidents, Kings and foreign leaders. We have helped dozens of businesses, coached thousands of individuals, college students, teachers and the unemployed.
We created The MindShare Network so that everyone can develop their own vision of the future. By defining and achieving their own brand of success, happiness and meaning, organizations and people everywhere will be transformed. We hope you will join us in our pursuit of happiness. The achievement of your dream is our greatest reward.
As Nelson Mandela once said, “There is no reason to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
Brothers Ed and Dave Goodman began their journey into the world of entrepreneurship right out of college. They formed a company, found investors and did the unthinkable. They started a band. In less than twelve months, they received a record deal, secured a well-known booking agent and toured the U.S. and Canada, perfoming in a series of concerts and festivals. This would be the first of several dreams fulfilled.
