9. Tony Hsieh

CEO of Zappos.com


Known for his unorthodox hiring practices at online retailer Zappos, Tony Hsieh is celebrated as a thought leader.

In all likelihood, you became an entrepreneur because you were looking for a major change: a departure from the people, places and experiences you'd always known up to that point.

Following the Twitter feeds outlined above should help you find the answers and confidence you'll need to grow your business and maximize your earning potential.
