Blake Mycoskie on Why External Validation Isn't The Answer
This week's conversation is with Blake Mycoskie, a social entrepreneur and the founder of TOMS.
Blake started TOMS in 2006 and revolutionized the way companies give back by giving shoes to a child in need for every pair purchased.
With all his focus going to TOMS, Blake realized he stopped taking care of himself and was diagnosed with mild depression.
With this diagnoses, he began exploring how he could better show up for himself and others and that ultimately led to his newest venture, Madefor, where he’s helping people gain control of their lives.
We cover so much in this conversation.
Blake shares how he got started in entrepreneurship, what’s been key to his success, and why his initial concept of success proved to be offbase.
The external factors, the money, the fame, the status all came with Blake’s business accomplishments but when he got everything he was chasing, he realized it wasn’t what he was actually interested in.
My hope is that if you only take one thing from this conversation, it’s that none of us have it all figured out, no matter how successful we may appear on the outside.
