6 entrepreneurs offer 6 insightful and potentially stress-relieving ways to improve the TSA

During this busy holiday travel season, there is nothing more "fun" about travel than the TSA.

The Transportation Security Administration was created more than a decade ago to help prevent another 9/11.

But over the years, its mission has been overshadowed by complaints about privacy violations, impractical restrictions, and the surliness of TSA agents.

Recently, Kip Hawley, the agency's former head, called for randomizing security checks and removing bans on items such as pocketknives in carry-ons.

What else could the TSA do to fix its rep and regain focus?  

Six successful entrepreneurs were asked for their advice:
  1. Keep Us Posted — Alexa von Tobel, CEO of LearnVest
  2. Return Our Liquids — Jules Pieri, CEO of Daily Grommet
  3. Be Nice — Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos
  4. Get More Consistent — Janine Popick, CEO of VerticalResponse
  5. Add Clocks — Eric Ryan, co-founder of Method
  6. Go Patriotic — Amos Winbush III, CEO of CyberSynchs
