Start Something That Matters

It's part biography, part motivational speech and all how-to. Just by telling his story in Start Something That Matters, Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS, motivates you to want to do something big.

If you know what you want to do, Blake will give you plenty of brotherly advice on how to get started, change your work environment and succeed.

If you have no idea what you want to do, he just might be able to point out some places you could get involved and help make a difference. The point is, everyone can make a difference. All it takes is wanting to, a willingness to work hard, some creativity and perhaps a little bit of luck.

I am not sure I want to start something entirely new. It may not be the time for that just yet, but there are certainly projects, both personal and professional, that Blake has given me some renewed energy to dream about and work towards.
