Book review: Start Something That Matters

I’m really not sure what compelled me to read this book, but the second I started reading I was hooked. This book is written by Blake Mycoskie the founder and creator of TOMS shoes. In the book he talks about how he decided to start making TOMS and what propelled him to create his one-for-one business. If you have been living under a rock for the past couple of years and haven’t heard about TOMS I will break it down for you. For every pair of TOMS shoes sold the company donates a pair of shoes to a child in need of shoes.
He explains in this book how he took a trip to Argentina and saw first hand the children who didn’t have shoes to wear and the diseases they were getting by walking around barefoot all the time. He decided to create a comfortable shoe that is durable for the children to wear. His idea and shoes became a success and millions of shoes have been given to needy children.
Not only will the stories in this book bring you to tears but he goes into his business strategies and how to run a successful business and be successful in life in general. I highly recommend taking time to read this book. I now have a new respect for the TOMS brand, a new pair of shoes and a child to pray for that is walking in a pair of shoes for the first time because of my $44.
