Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and PurposeDelivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

For those who love shoes, here's the story behind Zappos.

The visionary CEO of Zappos explains how an emphasis on corporate culture can lead to unprecedented success.

Pay new employees $2000 to quit. Make customer service the entire company, not just a department. Focus on company culture as the #1 priority. Apply research from the science of happiness to running a business. Help employees grow both personally and professionally. Seek to change the world. Oh, and make money too.

Sound crazy? It's all standard operating procedure at, the online retailer that's doing over $1 billion in gross merchandise sales every year.
In 1999, Tony Hsieh (pronounced Shay) sold LinkExchange, the company he co-founded, to Microsoft for $265 million. He then joined Zappos as an adviser and investor, and eventually became CEO.

In 2009, Zappos was listed as one of Fortune magazine's top 25 companies to work for, and was acquired by Amazon later that year in a deal valued at over $1.2 billion on the day of closing.

In his first book, Tony shares the different business lessons he learned in life, from a lemonade stand and pizza business through LinkExchange, Zappos, and more. Ultimately, he shows how using happiness as a framework can produce profits, passion, and purpose both in business and in life.

i learned to climb very early, i'm sure i'm responsible for more than a few of my mother's gray hairs. i have heard so many stories about when i was a toddler, how it was a common occurrence for whoever was watching me, to leave the room and return to find me gone...followed by a little bit of search, ending on the mantle. After a few times, they did learn to look up first

In this side of the world we celebrated Mother's Day on August 15th, my mom is a shoe lover, so this was the perfect cake for her.

Half of the cake was chocolate mud cake and the other part was white chocolate mud cake. The cake was filled with chocolate ganache.

My mom loved it! :)

THis is actually a DIY flipflop projects kids can make. You can use ribbon too, just try various ribbons or fabrics to make shoes as a gift for mom!

An easy fun craft for little ones.

These are the kinds of gifts you get when your son is in Boy Scouts, and they're commissioned to make Mother's Day flip flops.

They're actually kind of cuter in person.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!

Okay, I *really* hope the 99 cent store is not the "Mother's Day Headquarters" they say it is!

But this made me smile.

Happy Mom's Day
Happy Mum's Day
Happy Mimi's Day
Happy Nana's Day

Hope I covered everyone! Cheers to the moms who are worth WAY more than 99 cents! (And it wasn't even a dollar store!)
