The incredible story of the man behind TOMS Shoes and One for One, the revolutionary business model that marries fun, profit, and social good.
“A creative and open-hearted business model for our times.”—The Wall Street Journal
Why this book is for you:
• You’re ready to make a difference in the world—through your own start-up business, a nonprofit organization, or a new project that you create within your current job.
• You want to love your work, work for what you love, and have a positive impact on the world—all at the same time.
• You’re inspired by charity: water, method, and FEED Projects and want to learn how these organizations got their start.
• You’re curious about how someone who never made a pair of shoes, attended fashion school, or worked in retail created one of the fastest-growing footwear companies in the world by giving shoes away.
• You’re looking for a new model of success to share with your children, students, co-workers, and members of your community.
You’re ready to start something that matters.

    This book has inspired me so much. So glad that I was able to read this book. I was able to gain a new perspective on for-profit businesses.

    My husband and I heard Blake give the keynote address at the recent National AIA Convention in Denver. We have both started companies over the 50 years of our marriage. Now we are energized and about to embark on new ventures in our community. If everyone in America would embrace Blake's passion for action, together we could remake A country that seems to be in a state of apathy and inaction. Sandra M. Wisconsin

    This was a very good story! This was a very good how-to, when-to and what-to-do now handbook. This is an inspirational tool for anyone who has that passion to create a Do-Good Company locked inside of them and in need of a key to unlock the thoughts and actions to get it done!

    Thanks blake for awesome and inspiring book, I'll recommending to anybody who is working hard but feels empty. For sure I want to start something that matters and now I know that giving is a good business even when is not money. Gracias blake , un hermano Dominicano : Juan.
