6. MindSpring™ Consulting’s Growth in the past 20+ Years of Operation:
MindSpring™ Consulting, Inc. was founded in 1995 by Haydn and Terry Hasty. Both came from the public education arena. From discoveries made through Suggestive Accelerative Learning and Teaching, an innovative learning methodology developed by Georgi Lozanov of Sophie, Bulgaria, Haydn and Terry began designing curriculum’s and developmental processes in the arenas of leadership, teacher development, and personal mastery. MindSpring rented an office space at 552 New Haw Creek Road in Asheville, NC, for 10 years. On the first day of business, the 1200 square foot office complex consisted of 2 chairs, a used desk, and a Mac Classic 2-megabyte computer which was upgraded to 10 megabytes several months later. In the six months of business, MindSpring grossed a total of $800.00. In 2006, the new training center at 966 Tunnel Road in Asheville was built, just 5 minutes from downtown Asheville, NC. Haydn and Terry Hasty are the two principals of Monmovmin LLC that owns the MindSpring™ property.
