About this author

In 1999, at the age of twenty-four, Tony Hsieh (pronounced Shay) sold LinkExchange, the company he cofounded, to Microsoft for $265 million. He then joined Zappos as an adviser and investor, and eventually became CEO. He helped Zappos grow from almost nothing to over $1 billion in gross merchandise sales annually, while simultaneously making Fortune magazine’s annual “Best Places to Work For” list. Hsieh currently lives in Las Vegas and sort of has a cat.


Tony Hsieh isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

Our very own Tony Hsieh was recently featured on the "Pivot" series on A TOTAL DISRUPTION, two-time Sundance-winning director Ondi Timoner's YouTube channel that provides business and tech insights from the innovators defining our future.


In this video, Tony discusses how Zappos' pivot to focus on customer service and company culture has paid off—for both customers AND employees.

“Money alone isn't enough to bring happiness . . . happiness [is] when you're actually truly ok with losing everything you have.”
Tony Hsieh, Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

“Happiness is really just about four things: perceived control, perceived progress, connectedness (number and depth of your relationships), and vision/meaning (being part of something bigger than yourself).”
Tony Hsieh, Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

“I had decided to stop chasing the money, and start chasing the passion.”
