Are businesses made just to make a few people millionaires? Can I start a business that not only sells products and makes profit, but also contributes to social causes? SSTM gave me answers to these questions. I was annoyed of the idea of starting a business in advertising, home appliances, mobile apps, etc. that will only cause someone or some people to get richer, while thousands or millions somewhere else barely survive. SSTM showed me how profits can be shared with social and humanitarian causes, how I can actullay feel good about the business I am running - knowing that my success translates into helping someone in need, how new businesses actually get more support when they have charitable goals.
If you are looking for that extra push toward starting your own business or charity, this is it. Blake combines his own experience as well as the experiences of people he got in touch over the years and tells the story of YOU. You as someone who is capable to succeed regardless of obstacles. He inspires readers and gives them "YES you CAN" attitude, highlighting importance of the story behind whatever you might be doing.
Overall I enjoyed this book very much and I'm highly recommending it to the others who are looking to start they own venture while doing a greater good.
I enjoyed the story and was inspired to start a master mind group and start something that matters.
