About The Book

CHAPTER ONE is a story of epic proportions by Thankyou co-founder Daniel Flynn. The social enterprise exists to give 100% of profits to help end global poverty through the sale of their consumer products. Thankyou was started back in 2008 by a group of three Australian kids from Melbourne with zero business experience and the shared belief that we all have the power to change stuff. Their journey is a bumpy and entertaining ride of gut-wrenching decisions, wild mistakes and daring moves into business, marketing, social enterprise and beyond.  
Chapter One is more than a book. It’s an invitation, addressed to you. To inspire you to challenge what you know and remind you that crazy ideas can become a reality. It’s also an opportunity to be a part of something big. Something that could change the course of history.

“What the Thankyou team does is never settle. Not because a company brand book tells them not to, but because the fire to do so lives within their gut.”

  "This is a book about pushing boundaries. It teaches you how to see things differently, it challenges you to test convention, to notice the world's limitations and not only wonder why they exist, but ask what you can do about them."

About Daniel

Daniel Flynn co-founded Thankyou™ at just 19 with his then girlfriend (now wife!) Justine Flynn, and his best mate Jarryd Burns. They had a simple idea: What if purchasing everyday items like bottled water, food and body care products could provide life-changing solutions for the millions of people who live in poverty? Seven years on, Thankyou has been likened to the ‘Apple’ of Australia’s consumer goods industry thanks to Daniel’s disruptive and truly innovative approach to business and marketing.

Daniel’s goal is to inspire others to make their own world-changing dreams a reality. He believes that everyone has the power to do something extraordinary, and make a remarkable impact on the world.
