RIP Tony Hsieh, 1973 – 2020

Tony leaves an indelible impression on everyone his life crosses paths with. I first saw him speak in 2008, and his approach to being customer centric, questioning assumptions of business, and building a purpose-driven culture had a deep influence on me. I noticed that almost every picture I have of Tony we’re in a group, and it was almost always a meal or trip that ended up being memorable thanks to the frisson Tony’s presence would engender. He was always such singular character, I was looking forward to seeing him grow old and his eccentricities continue to ferment and evolve. He is gone before his time, and I hope his memories continue to grow and inspire us to find the magic on the other side of our comfort zone.
