Kotler 13 th Edition Chapter #3 “Tom’s Shoes” Transcript MYCOSKIE: Hi, I’m Blake Mycoskie, chief shoe giver here at Tom’s shoes. Tom’s shoes is a very simple concept. For every pair of shoes that we sell, we give a pair away to a child somewhere in the world - w ho doesn’t have a pair of shoes. So, it’s a on e-for- one business model where we’re really connecting the consumer in the first world, to a person in the third world who has a need. I was on vacation and I was down in Argentina. I met some children who didn’t have shoes and it just blew my mind that people had these cuts and infections and hookworm for the simple fact that they didn’t have shoes. So I wanted to give them shoes. I had deep desire in my heart to do so. But, I had no experience in charity, did not really want to become a full-time money-raiser or philanthropist, so I started to think of how could I give these kids shoes with what my skill was. What I did know I’m an entrepreneur. I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 18 years old. So I knew that I could start a business that might be able to help these kids get shoes. And by doing a business, it would be much more sustainable than charity. I knew if I could do that and make a shoe and catch it on and get it to be cool, in doing so, would really allow me to help them without being dependent on donors or beneficiaries.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
