Our Story


iDream Talent started with three founding members - Josh Goryl, Tony Colasanto, and Addison Carpenter - in 2010 that had a passion to help their peers.  With experience in talent evaluation in business and sports, Addison saw athletes struggle while making a transition from sports to business.  He wanted to help.


“Reflecting on my experience, I remember when I underwent an identity crisis when I had to stop playing hockey after two concussions.  My life was hockey and I was lost without it.  Not knowing what to do, I had a great coach help me understand that the talents that made me successful in hockey can be applied to any aspect of my life.  Taking that to heart, I worked my butt off and every challenge I undertook only produced success.  Guess what? Talent translates!  That lesson transformed my world, and I want to spend a lifetime helping others realize that, yes, you have what it takes to be successful if you use your talents in the right job and on the right team.” - Addison Carpenter
