Over the past ten years I have served Concordia University - St. Paul as the Help Desk Manager. As the years have passed I have expanded in job duties, but I have always wanted to be involved with the Help Desk. This is because there is no greater way to make people happy than to work directly with people at moments when there is frustration. I am passionate about taking a negative experience and transforming it into a positive engagement. As a result, I have been constantly interested in Zappos and the efforts they go to growing happiness. This interest only expanded when one of my former colleagues and former student worker Thomas Knoll went on to work for Zappos several months ago.
Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos, was one of the first people I started following on Twitter. Actually, as I think about it, a conversation with him led to my purchasing a great pair of Keen shoes shortly after engaging him on Twitter. Tony is releasing a book and I am hosting a meetup.

In his first book, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, writes about how a corporate culture modeled on happiness can be a powerful way of achieving success. Is your town happy? Prove it. Celebrate the June 7 launch of Delivering Happiness by attending or organizing your own Delivering Happiness Meetup in your city. Watch us live from New York at 7pm ET, as we livestream from the launch party.
