Hello, my name is Todd Goldfarb and I am the publisher and curator of all things Tipping you will find throughout this website. First, I want to thank you for stopping by and checking out our mission, it means the world!
From a young age, I always had the sense something was off in the world in which I was living. Growing up just outside of New York City, I remember watching men and women pile into cars and trains each morning in uncomfortable looking clothes with unhappy faces going to ‘work’, and I could not understand why they were all doing this.
After college, I began my career in the Internet Marketing arena, a profession I perceived as having more freedoms than the ones I witnessed as a child (I could wear more comfortable clothes, which was huge for me). For the most part, my fascination with the ‘workings of the world’ was quelled through the typical pursuits of a young, professional male: money, girls, and materialistic things.
Much of this shifted on September 11, 2001 when I watched the Twin Towers fall from my living room window in downtown Manhattan. Within the next few years, I became a seeker of truths. Questions I had not pondered since my childhood became the main focus of my thoughts; inquiries like: what is my true purpose, what difference can my little life make, and who we are as human beings?
I attended conferences, participated in workshops, read every spiritual book I could find, got certified in various things, became a coach, embraced practices like meditation and visualization. At this time I also started writing a blog called We The Change that served as a public diary to my unfolding journey.
Since 2005 I have been an entrepreneur, a consultant, and have worked on a myriad of projects in the social change space. I have consulted with the likes of Eckhart Tolle, Sounds True, the THRIVE Movie and have even appeared on National TV for some the ventures I helped create.
The Tipping Idea…
SO why did I start Worldwide Tipping Point? I first had the idea about four years ago, and it came to me in a flash of sudden inspiration: to create some sort of quantifiable measure for the global awakening I was feeling so deeply, an awakening I knew millions of people from all over the globe were feeling.
On the spur of the moment I went out and created an odd little website, established an ambiguous ‘Tipping Counter’, and wrote some flimsy language about what I was trying to accomplish. A few hundred people signed on, which was really quite a surprise since I didn’t have a clue what Worldwide Tipping Point was supposed to be….
And here we are, four years later: an odd website called “Worldwide Tipping Point”, a strange looking Counter, some flimsy (albeit better) language, and I am still not quite sure what Worldwide Tipping Point is supposed to be!
Which is exactly how I came to the idea of interviewing people. I decided to stop trying to tell people what Worldwide Tipping Point is, and instead decided to ask people.
I interview all kinds of human beings on this website: anthropologists, scientists, business people, spiritual teachers, financial people, famous people, not-famous people, and anyone who can help make sense of this unique period of time we are living!
And what about the Tipping Counter? In my view, the Counter is an important and relevant symbol for something millions of people from all over the globe feel. As you sign up for the content and interviews (which are free and will remain free in perpetuity), the Counter will tick a notch.
What happens when the Counter reaches 50,000, 100,000, 1,000,000, and more? I honestly do not know, but in my opinion it’s the inquiry that’s most important!
I hope you sign on, listen to all the interviews because they are INCREDIBLE. The talks have changed and evolved my personal perspectives on things and I know they will do the same for you!
Much Love, and to Tipping this thing,
