comment What is a “mind-share leader”?
This question appears to be strictly about the definition of a word that you could look up in a dictionary or on Wikipedia, so I have voted to close it as a general reference question. However, if you wanted to ask a specific question about how to use this phrase (or some other question like that), I think it would be considered on-topic.
