TOMS Shoes: Blake Mycoskie

You may have a pair of TOMS shoes on your feet or in your closet right now. We talk with company founder Blake Mycoskie about conscious capitalism.

A new generation of social entrepreneurs is finding that good deeds can mean good business, even in tough economic times. We talk with Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS, who found success using a 'One for One' model; for every pair of TOMS shoes that's purchased, a second pair is given to a child in need somewhere in the world. We talk to Blake about the growth of the business, started just 5 years ago, and the lessons he's learned along the road to success.
