Tea with Tony Hsieh: Jasmine Pearl, Blood Orange Puerh

If you own a pair of shoes, sneakers, or sandals you probably know about Zappos.com. Or, if you read the great book Delivering Happiness, then you also know Zappos.com. In this episode I meet with Tony Hsieh, CEO of this amazing company that offers so much more than just shoes. We aren’t at Samovar in this episode, so there’s no tea. However, if we were drinking tea, I would have brewed Blood Orange Puerh for Tony,  and Jasmine Pearl for me. Tony is a really inspiring guy, so listen to his insights on what makes Zappos so special, and what it means to be happy at work, and in life.
