  • Start Something That Matters

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 50 mins)
    • By Blake Mycoskie
    • Narrated By Blake Mycoskie

    What matters most to you? Should you focus on earning a living, pursuing your passions, or devoting yourself to the causes that inspire you? The surprising truth is that you don’t have to choose—and that you’ll find more success if you don’t. That’s the breakthrough message of the TOMS One for One movement. You don’t have to be rich to give back and you don’t have to retire to spend every day doing what you love. You can find profit, passion, and meaning all at once—right now.

    "Blake provides a practical and inspiring guide..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this book is a true testimony to be shared with anyone, particular with friends on their journey to inspire and make a difference in the lives of others.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Start Something That Matters?

    When Blake reiterates that every venture he undertakes should be a difference in the lives of others and not just the financial gain that he receives. Additionally, using the customer to help make a difference, their involvement is not merely a consumer only but also an advocate of the business. I was able to identify with his leadership style when he describes how to create an organisation that is built on trust and mistakes by employees should be forgiven. I agree there should be zero tolerance for dishonest and untrustworthy employees. Blake's academic referencing adds to the quality of the book.

    Have you listened to any of Blake Mycoskie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time reading Blake's material.

    What did you learn from Start Something That Matters that you would use in your daily life?

    To start off with a small idea that matters and grow it into something big. Also avoiding unnecessary overheads and use the resources that are readily available to grow the business. Having left my job a few weeks ago I needed to hear Blake's professional and personal experiences, suggestions and inspiring message.

    Any additional comments?

    This book has awaken the burning desire within me to succeed as an upcoming entrepeneur. This is inspiring material I will forever reference.

  • How to Start Your Own Coaching/Consulting Business

    • UNABRIDGED (57 mins)
    • By Jeremy McIntyre
    • Narrated By Teg Gray

    Hundreds of thousands of people make a living doing one thing and one thing only...telling other people what to do. Right now, you get up early every day. You survive the commute to your work. You take orders from someone else - and then you get a paycheck. One that's probably a lot smaller than your boss' check - even if you know a lot more about what's going on than he or she does. But you know what? If you've taken the time to learn your trade...if you've gained experience in the real may be able to find people who will PAY YOU to tell them what to do.

    Melinda says: "Insightful"

    It somewhat met my expectations, the narrator was eloquent, precise and engaging. It could have been an hour long instead.
