On a worm farm…where it all began.

In the first chapter of Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose (page 5), author Tony Hsieh talks about his first entrepreneurial¬†adventure in the worm farm industry. Unfortunately, his $33.45 investment and desire to become the “number one worm seller in the world,” didn’t pan out exactly as he had anticipated. However, Tony’s failed attempt at worm farming at age 9, only sparked his entrepreneurial spirit for the years to come.

In November, the Delivering Happiness Bus Crew returned to where it all began, the worm farm! Since Tony’s visit, the Sonoma Valley Worm Farm is under new ownership of Jack Chambers, and the farm has received an upgrade with state-of-the-art equipment. With open arms, Jack and his family welcomed the Delivering Happiness Bus Crew for a day on the farm, which made for one of the most memorable stops on the tour. Watch the video to find out more about the Sonoma Valley Worm Farm and the Delivering Happiness Bus Tour visit.

    Love the piece! When my students wrote the play “What are YOUR Core Values??” based on the book Delivering Happiness, they insisted on a mention of the worm farm! It’s so cool to see this video!

    BTW, our performances are Thursday and Friday!
