This Fabulous Book Will Inspire You
on November 2, 2010
Imagine building a company from scratch, having a big company like Yahoo! offer to buy it for $20M and turning it down. Not because you thought it was a bad offer but because you realized that you would enjoy building that company more than you would anything that money could buy you.
"I had decided to stop chasing the money, and start chasing the passion" says Tony Hsieh early in his book.
Of course, it wasn't as simple as that, and you find out the struggles, the sacrifices and hard decisions Tony made during his career to date (which by the way is not a long one ... he's so young!).
His story is one of blazing your own trail when the one everyone else uses just doesn't quite work for you. It's about creating vision and purpose for your business, your team and yourself. And most of all it's about contribution - to yourself, to your company, to others.
And a big bonus at the end is Tony's advice on happiness. What is happiness to him and how you can find more happiness in your life, your job or your business. His purpose is to contribute to a happiness movement to help make the world a better place. Pretty powerful isn't it?? So is the rest of the book. READ IT!
