Why the name Goalz™

Our name sets the tone for our employees and our business

Goalz was founded by Shawn Eby (CEO). Shawn started setting work and personal goals at the beginning stages of his career. He now has a goal setting class that he has taught to thousands of individuals.

Shawn has always said “without goals you have no direction and without direction you go nowhere”. When it came to thinking of not just a name but what we want to be known for Shawn thought about his career and how he wanted this to be a company that truly cares about the employees and their families. He thought about his goal setting class and teaching people about Goals Boards and to go after your dreams.

The name Goalz™ was a perfect fit!
