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.

What did you love best about Start Something That Matters?

That Blake read it himself. It added the element of authenticity to the story and allowed me to feel like I was listening to his real story and not a version of it from someone else.

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

The story of the early days of Toms, and how much they accomplished with creativity, luck, a sense of purpose, and a sense of humor.

What about Blake Mycoskie’s performance did you like?

His voice was easy to listen to, and he was totally geniune. He provided some interesting view points on what to consider when thinking about taking a leap and building something of your own, about following your heart with practical and realistic tips.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Redefining what corporate America could be.
The marriage of making money and doing good for the world.
