I left Seattle pretty sure that Amazon would be a better partner for Zappos than our current board of directors or any other outside investor.

Our board wanted an immediate exit; we wanted to build an enduring company.

With Amazon, it seemed that Zappos could continue to build its culture, brand, and business. We would be free to be ourselves.
