We all struggle to make the best decisions possible. But what if we could make every important decision with the help of the smartest people in the world? Sound impossible? Surprisingly, we can all access the collective wisdom of hundreds or even thousands of people who together are as smart as any expert adviser.

With more than half of all adult Americans using Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, more and more of us are turning to crowdsourcing to find information about finance, relationships, careers, and much more. Lior Zoref calls this “mindsharing,” a form of crowdsourcing that doesn’t ask people to think for us but instead to think with us. Going beyond our small circle of connections for advice and support, mindsharing allows us to harness the much greater power of our ‘weak’ connections.

Mindsharing is being applied to decisions as small as how to design a business card and as major as buying a house. Whether you need to make better financial choices, find the love of your life, or transform your career, Zoref will show you how to harness the collective intelligence of a broad and diverse crowd.
If the old saying is true that two brains are better than one, get ready to benefit from the power of fifty, five hundred, or five thousand brains.
