Chamber plans strategies for success workshop / August 19, 2013
In 1999, at the age of 24, Tony Hsieh sold LinkExchange, the company he co-founded, to Microsoft for $265 million. He then became an advisor and investor, and eventually became CEO, where he helped grow from almost no sales to over $1 billion in gross merchandise sales annually, while simultaneously making Fortune magazines annual “Best Companies to Work For” list. In November 2009,, Inc. was acquired by in a deal valued at $1.2 billion on the day of closing. His first book, “Delivering Happiness”, was published on June 7, 2010.

Today Hsieh is working to revitalize Las Vegas. This $350 million Downtown Project is a mix of investments, acquisitions and loans — envisions blocks and blocks of community-based, pedestrian-friendly, small-business-oriented, high-density, high-tech urbanism in long-depressed and troubled neighborhoods. Zappos will take over the decrepit old City Hall. That gesture alone, salvaging a local landmark, has endeared Hsieh to many in Las Vegas.

Joe Carey with Renaissance Executive Forums will be speaking on how to identify root cause of roadblocks to business success, develop strategies & action plans to move forward, and setting short & long term Business priorities.

The workshop will be Tuesday Sept. 10 at the Riverstone Centre, from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Six great takeaways: Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh, Zappos Family Culture Book, Participants Workbook, A Business PAL (Prioritized Action List), S3- Stay the course, Start new Habits, Stop old habits, and bibliography.
