upon a time, Dr. Carol Goldberg had an inspiration to apply her
understanding of people to increase their health and
productivity. She would
teach people how to achieve their goals, especially by managing
stress and staying motivated. In order to reach many
people and because of the value for businesses, her workshops
and motivational speaking would be at corporations, conferences,
training facilities, conventions, and meetings. After
doing this part time for many years, she decided to expand it to
full-time and establish a corporation. Thus, Getting Ahead
Programs was born in 1995.
Goldberg chose the name Getting Ahead Programs® to convey her belief
that advancement results from skills than can be learned. From the
initials for Getting Ahead Programs, G.A.P., she developed the
motivational slogan, “Close
the gap between where you are and where you want to be.®"
She designed an arrow shaped logo
to indicate progression and to be a pointer. In the arrow, she
placed a gap, a ladder for advancement, and the color green, the color
associated with growth and money.
The name Getting Ahead Programs, its slogan,
and its logo are ® Registered Service Marks with U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
provide memorable programs, with lasting benefits.
