Start Something that Matters
There’s probably not another book that will inspire you more than this one. It’s one of those books that causes you to look at your own situation, and want to do more with the talents you’ve been given. It not only helps you discover what you’re truly passionate about, but tells you how to implement that, improving your life and the life of those around you.
A very brief synopsis:
In 2006, while running his fourth start-up, Blake traveled to Argentina on vacation to “get lost in the culture”. The national shoe that everyone wore were called the alpargata, which initially provided the inspiration for Toms shoes. That, coupled with the fact the many of the children still didn’t have shoes, gave him the needed validation to start the project.
