Starting fresh- “Start Something that Matters”

Start Something That Matters – Official Video Trailer

At the beginning of each year, I am always inspired with renewed energy to do something new or try something I have never done before.  I have always wanted and thought about what I could do to devote myself to a cause.   But that is the point I have always thought about it and never done anything about it until now.  I received the book  for Christmas  “Start Something That Matters” written by the founder of Toms Shoes Blake Mycoskie.  Blake has had a whirlwind past couple of years from a former reality show contestant, serial entrepreneur, his One for One movement, just to name a few.   The main object of the book is to inspire all of us to do something that “MATTERS”, make some impact on something or someone; he presents six simple steps for creating or transforming your own life and business.  Blake states, “I feel a deep sense of responsibility to share everything that we’ve learned from TOMS, so that others can learn from both our mistakes and the counterintuitive principles that have guided our success.”  The books shares his thoughts as well as others who are making an impact such as Scott Harrison founder of Charity:water and Lauren Bush founder of              FEED Projects.  It is time for all of us to step out of our FEAR ZONE and instead of thinking what we would do start DOING!

What are ways you want to give back and do something that matters?

“Love your work, work for what you love, and change the world—all at the same time.”
