I love my TOMS. They are ridiculously comfortable and even kind of cute. (I am waiting with great expectation for the ballet flats that are coming out this spring and REALLY cute.) But what I love most about TOMS is that they got our girls excited about the concept of one for one. TOMS were all Kate wanted for her 7th birthday because she really wanted a child who needed them to get a pair of shoes, too. It’s not perfect, it’s not the end to poverty, but it’s an innovative, exciting idea. Blake Mycoskie started something that matters, and he’s written a book about it so you can too.
In Start Something That Matters, Blake Mycoskie tells the story of TOMS, one of the fastest-growing shoe companies in the world, and combines it with lessons learned from such other innovative organizations as method, charity: water, FEED Projects, and TerraCycle. Blake presents the six simple keys for creating or transforming your own life and business, from discovering your core story to being resourceful without resources; from overcoming fear and doubt to incorporating giving into every aspect of your life. No matter what kind of change youâ€™re considering, Start Something That Matters gives you the stories, ideas, and practical tips that can help you get started.
I was given two copies of this book from the publisher, I can’t wait to start reading mine and send one to one of you as well! If youâ€™ve never used Rafflecopter, itâ€™s simple and easy. (Though, occasionally you will have to refresh the page if the widget doesnâ€™t show up below.)
