Last weekend I began reading Blake Mycoskie's new book "Start Something That Matters"  It informs you of how TOMS shoes was founded and why it was created, gives you a personal insight into what matters most to Blake and what is his motivation to pursue his dream.

What IF you could do what you love, what matters most to you while earning a living? What IF you didn't have to choose between what you WANT to do and what you HAVE to do? Well Blake does an excellent job at teaching us about this. He also teaches us about innovations, charity and success!

Blake made his dream come true by innovating charity: One for One is how he accomplishes his goal. Bringing joy and comfort to kids in different countries. He also teaches us the six simple keys for creating our own business.

TOMS is now helping children in need of shoes, eye wear and books! One for One, in this holiday season it's good to keep in mind that every single purchase of TOMS you make provides one for a child in need.
