    (Part 2) Tony Hsieh and the Quest for Happiness (Enthusiasts, Ep. 67)

    (Part 2) Tony Hsieh and the Quest for Happiness (Enthusiasts, Ep. 67)

    While this five-part series is about one extraordinary man who deserves as much name recognition as Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, it’s also about the many overlapping contexts that explain his successes, his tragic downward spiral, and his evergreen comments on how to be happy. Tony Hsieh spent his life studying and trying to create and spread happiness, implementing elements of rave culture, the Silicon Valley lifestyle, Howard-Hughes-level renovation ideas, and outside-the-box theories. The results: a shoe company where meetings were more like pep rallies, Tony’s llama obsession was apparent, and decor and toys abounded; a Vegas project set on creating the happiest city on Earth in just five years; a “Happiness Tour” that spread fun and games nationwide; and even more pursuits. However, Tony’s ambitious projects also brought chaos, misery, loneliness, and confusion to many - including, unbeknownst to some, himself.



    Each episode in this mini-series covers both Tony Hsieh’s life story and seemingly unrelated stories that took place simultaneously. At the end, the different puzzle pieces will form a clear picture, one that shows what happiness is, was, and could be.



    This is part two: Tony Hsieh’s years at the helm of Zappos, a company that made its mark by taking a “The customer is always right” approach to the extreme; a bus tour featuring happy hours, animal-themed music, and games galore; major meetings with Jeff Bezos; and the answer to this question: What happens when places as zany as Zappos and Vegas collide?

    minisode 3: TOMORROW Explainer

    Throughout this in-depth guide to The Little Prince, Hope draws attention to the parallels TXT make to it in their new songs, short film, “Deja Vu” music video, and even teaser images. Simultaneously unpacking minisode 3: TOMORROW and The Little Prince reveals how complementary the stories are and how TXT’s world-building has actually been covering the same life lessons as The Little Prince for years now!



    Read Hope’s essay about TXT’s take on The Little Prince below, and scroll to the bottom of the essay to find links to lots of previous TXT-themed articles and podcast episodes!

    Each episode in this mini-series covers both Tony Hsieh’s life story and seemingly unrelated stories that took place simultaneously. At the end, the different puzzle pieces will form a clear picture, one that shows what happiness is, was, and could be.

    This is part one: Tony Hsieh’s early years, during which he pulled off one clever and amusing marketing gimmick after another and tried everything from selling buttons to running a restaurant; the comeback of a “ghost town;” two bizarre characters’ published ramblings from when they were high on laughing gas; turn-of-the-century, over-the-top bashes that kept outdoing each other; and a new idea for a workplace overhaul.
