Zappos, my hero.

9 Aug

Make no mistake about it, I love Zappos.  Zappos has enhanced the lives of stylists across the nation because they can order all the shoes a job calls for, amongst everything else you can think of (since the collaboration with Amazon) and receive it the very next day with no shipping costs.  AND, most importantly, returns are incredibly easy.  I no longer have to explain to the salesman at Nordstrom, or more importantly waist his/her time, why I’m buying 15 pairs of shoes in 5 different sizes.  To top it off, they have the best costumer service.

Now for Tony Hseigh, he’s a software guy who hit it big during the internet boom in the 90’s and was a multi-millionaire by the age of 24.  He now makes 30,000 a year, which is what his lowest paid employee gets, as the CEO of Zappos.  Hseigh is a visionary and a business mogul, yet only owns one pair of sneakers.  He has forever changed online ordering because now everyone feels they need to offer free, overnight shipping.    I follow him like a teenage girl obsessed with Justin Bieber and find him endlessly brilliant.  I really wish I could pick his brain over a cup of tea.

Here’s a Nightline piece about Zappos success.
