It's a great feeling when your former boss writes about your suggestion years ago as an example of the philosophy at work in a company that's had the impact TOMS has had. Thanks for listening Blake. Keep up the important work!
I just came across this recent Fast Company article and short video interview of TOMS founder and my former boss, Blake Mycoskie:
At the end of the segment, Blake shares TOMS' latest commercial (below) and why TOMS recently added the sign-off, "For One, Another" after their now famous creed, "One for One."
I've just got to say, "Well done team."
This is a brilliant commercial.
Not just for the great song, "Nothing More" by The Alternate Routes. And its lyrics which obviously sync up well with each clip intentionally...
Back in Dec. 2012, I spoke with students at East Rockaway High School in NY about AmeriCorps - specifically, opportunities that national service can lead to and the doors it opens.
Here's the audio of my presentation cut to the photo slideshow I shared at the time:
If you do, thanks for watching.
I really enjoyed my short time interning at TOMS in 2009. For many reasons. One of those reasons was that I created a fantastic workspace.
“Nice to meet you. What do you do?”

Adam's grateful his 20s were a debt-free decade traveling with intention through work with meaning. Some of that work includes TOMS, The White House, teaching abroad, experimenting with art and business in the Gift Economy, and two proud terms of national service with AmeriCorps. We have got to reform student loan debt for all!
