Arlington, Texas born TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie started out selling shoes from his apartment in 2006 and now describes his position within what has become a vastly successful company as “Chief Giver of Shoes”. A participant in the television series The Amazing Race in 2001 along with his sister, Paige, Mycoskie has some 60,000 followers on Twitter and gives one pair of shoes to a person in need for every pair he sells. He has given away over 35 million pairs since 2006 and was once described by President Bill Clinton as “one of the most interesting entrepreneurs I’ve ever met”.
