TOMS Shoes Adds Eyewear To Its One For One Business Model
After months of teasing, TOMS Shoes opened up its touring cardboard tube to reveal the next tier in it’s business model: eyewear. “In 2007 after giving away 10,000 shoes, I recognized that the one-for-one model but what I also saw in the many villages we went to was that there were many more needs that weren’t being met,” TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie told a crowd of about 200 fans, supporters and media outside the California Heritage Museum Tuesday morning. “I made a promise to myself that as soon as the business was ready we would use our model to address another need.” TOMS one-for-one model has provided more than one million shoes for people in need worldwide as a result of more than one million pairs sold via the TOMS website and retail partners including Nordstrom, where TOMS is the number-one selling shoe, reports The LA Times. With eyewear, TOMS believes it can have an immediate impact for a solvable issue. TOMS Eyewear is available for purchase starting today.
Blaine Bartlett joins Ivan Misner to discuss his International Best Selling book, “Compassionate Capitalism: Journey to the Soul of Business”. Pay attention to the soul of your business or you might miss incredible opportunities. Business is the most pervasive and influential force on the planet today. Its activities transcend national and international borders. The net of this is that business, as a prevalent and important force, has a moral responsibility to guide, enhance, value, and nourish the existence of all that it encounters. In the world today, the absolute opposite of this occurs. Business today seldom assesses the efficacy of its activities through the lens of anything but profit. Traditional capitalism forgets an important variable, that of happiness. The true purpose of business is to uplift the experience of existing. Compassionate capitalism is an economic system meant to make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun.
