The story of an Internet home business entrepreneur
At the age of 22, he started an Internet marketing home business company with his roommate.
The name of the company was Linkexchange. They sold their company for $265 million dollars to Microsoft.
Afterwards Tony bought an online shoe store and called it Zappos. He is the CEO of the company.
Tony Hsieh graduated from Harvard University with a BA in Computer Science.

Watch these videos on the roll at the end then read the story behind the owner of Zappos.com.
He has created a work environment that focuses on team and family.
Imagine he takes a pay of $36,000 a year! I guess you can afford it when you have a cushion in the bank ;-)!
Really he believes he is in the customer service business. Don't you recall trying to get service from customer service after keying in 4 numbers? Or what about getting hold of a voice machine!
He bases all of his hiring staff on customer service training. "You're actually on the phone for two weeks talking with customers. And people that can't make it through that we either don't hire or drop them during the training process."
Tony builds his brand around customer service. He says: "We're actually hoping 10 years from now people won't even realize we started out selling shoes online, and maybe 30 years from now we'll have a Zappos Airlines that's just about the very best customer service in the airline industry."
When he talks to entrepreneurs, he challenges them with a question: "Do what you would be passionate about doing for 10 years, even if you didn't make a single dime during those 10 years, you'll end up happier. And kind of the ironic thing is if you do what you're passionate about, the money will just naturally follow on its own."
