I had seen the little cloth like shoes around and really did not pay much attention to them until I ran across the "TOMS" book called " Start Something that matters" by Blake MyCoskie- Chief Shoe giver of TOMS.
While vacationing in Argentina, Blake noticed these children running around with these cloth like shoes and some with none.
So, he decided to start a movement which led to the drive and passion he has today to supply children with shoes.
TOMS give back and movement is that with every pair they sell they give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.
So Blake combined a for profit company with a social mission. TOMS suceeded becuase they created a new model. "The giving component."
The giving component of TOMS is what makes their shoes more than just a product.
As you read fready to purchase your very own MUST have TOMS book let me share some important information I picked up from my readings of the TOMS story.
1. Find your story- Having a memorable story about who your are and what your mission is.
2. Success no longer depends on how experienced you are or how many degrees you have or who you know.
3. Remember, a story evokes emotion and emotion forges a connection.
4. Be resource without resources.
And if you don't have enough reasons to purchase your very own TOMS book, Blake is giving away 50% of proceeds from the book to support others through the "Start Something that Matters Fund" as they make positive impacts on the world.
