Who Are the Generous Minds

It is easy to assume that Generous Minds are authors, teachers and speakers. But actually, these are the professionals - it is a bit like managers of large foundations. The key to true knowledge transfer is having people from all walks of life looking for opportunities to be generous with what they know.

Hi Jon and Mindy Hirst. Hope you are well. I came across your site totally by accident. In fact it wasn't exactly on a topic I was looking for (I was on the lookout for Time Share Resale info). But as I was searching, one link led me to another and I got curious about your blog. I found it interesting and thought I'd drop you a line to tell you so. I guess thats what surfing is all about.

Thanks for all the good words and definitions. I especially like the words "Freehearted" and "Lavish" to describe our attitude towards sharing what we know.
