Start Something That Matters ebook by Blake Mycoskie
Business , Non-Fiction , Self Improving / September 5, 2011

This quick little book is not a “preachy” primer on “how to be good,” but rather a business book that encourages the reader’s entrepreneurial side, and emphasizes the importance of being passionate about whatever you do, be it starting a company that sends people bouncy balls with personalized messages or building clean water wells around the world. Start Something That Matters author Blake Mycoskie also speaks to basic management principles and strategies (from hiring the right people and keeping staff inspired and involved, to dealing with your own and employees’ mistakes). Of course, he does urge us to incorporate giving into any business model we might embark upon, but he does this on the basis of not only the most important reason (giving to those in need), but also for the many practical business reasons he has discovered along the way with TOMS (such as passionate customers who evangelize the brand and corporate partners wishing to bask in the charitable “halo”). All in all a quick read that might just make you think about your professional (and life) choices.
