When Don Ressler ventured into the fashion business, his primary objective was to transform the way people shop through the provision of on-trend fashion at a fantastic value. He has remained true to his goals and has launched several successful companies such as Intermix Media and its affiliates. Ressler’s ascension to the top of the fashion industry has been full of challenges and moments of triumph. Keep reading and find out how Don Ressler rose from a humble beginning to an influential fashion investor on en.wikipedia.org.
The first entrepreneurial venture of Ressler was FitnessHeaven.com, which he sold to Intermix Media in 2001. He then, partnered with COO of Intermix Media, Adam Goldenberg, to create Alena Media. Intermix’s e-commerce and performance advertising section used to generate hundreds of million in returns, and it was the firm’s major profit center. When News Corp purchased Intermix in back 2005, Don Ressler and Adam were surprised to watch helplessly as the media conglomerate ignored the lucrative, successful e-commerce business unit they had created. Disappointed and not certain with the new firm, they relinquished their positions to concentrate on new investment opportunities.
Ressler was confident that he had the right skills to excel in the sector of online performance advertising, which was experiencing a fast growth at the time. Ressler and Adam decided to develop a brand creation enterprise they could implement autonomously. Former Alena group members gathered in Goldenberg’s living room for a series of brainstorming sessions. After two weeks of coming up with outstanding brand ideas, Intelligent Beauty was launched.
Intelligent Beauty turns out to be a success
Intelligent Beauty created DERMSTORE, a unique cosmetic marketplace as its first creation on Pando. After two years, Ressler and Goldenberg introduced a weight-loss plan called SENSA and appointed Dr. Allan Hirsch as the head of product development division and Brett Brewer as the CEO. While Intelligent Beauty does not publicize its financial results, trusted sources hint that both DERMSTORE and SENSA are highly profitable. In 2008, the firm received $43 million from Technology Crossover Ventures.
Launch of series of affiliates
In 2010, Intelligent Beauty unveiled a third firm, JustFab, an online subscription retailer that focuses on delivering an incredible shopping experience to clients. Ressler and Goldenberg appointed Kimora Lee to the position of President and Creative Director in 2011. In the second round of funding, the co-founders secured $76 million from Matrix Partners, Rho Ventures, and Crossover Ventures, and Intelligent Beauty (Umbrella Company). Other firms created or acquired by Intelligent Beauty include Fabletics, FabKids, and The Fab Shoes.
Marc Sparks has long been a leader in the entrepreneurial industry, having founded many successful companies, including Timber Creek Capital. With over ten years in its same location, Marc Sparks was sensing that the ideas and forward thinking of his company that led to the original success had grown stale. Therefore, he decided to switch up the office and move to a new location in order to spark the same creativity to drove the company to its original success.
The new office setup will resemble a pattern that has developed with other successful startups, working to foster an environment in which people will work together to push each other to new heights and come up with better ideas to drive the office forward. The whole idea is to generate private equity that can be used to help other entrepreneurs make companies that enjoy similar revenue streams.
Marc Sparks knows that without a work environment conducive to collaboration, his company can only go so far. He has learned this from decades of experience and massive success with multiple companies. In fact, he details this in his new book titled “They Can’t Eat You.” In this, he describes how people can follow in the footsteps of his success while also learning from his failures without having to make the same mistakes themselves.
With over 35 years of success with Timber Capital, he takes his time and selects a few companies at a time to back and mentor to successes these young entrepreneurs haven’t seen before. Generous with his time, these young professionals can learn from his years of wisdom and experience.
In addition to a successful entrepreneur, Marc Sparks is also a prolific author and generous philanthropist. His book, They Can’t Eat You, was discussed above and serves as a model for other young businessmen to follow.
He also spends a significant amount of time with Habitat for Humanity. Furthermore, he runs a non-profit organization called Sparkey Kids, which recently donated one thousand laptop computers to under served children in the area. Sparks also works with a homeless shelter called The Samaritan Inn which houses over 160 people per night.
Marc Sparks’s greatest success, Timber Capital, exists to generate revenue with which Sparks can back the young dreams of other entrepreneurs. In Dallas, this company provides not only revenue, but also leadership with experience and wisdom, legal resources, and accounting departments necessary to help the dreams of others take flight.
With the marketing, graphic design, and support staff combined with the other resources, these individuals have a much better chance of turning their dreams into successful business venture than they would have alone. Marc Sparks serves as a true role model for others in the entrepreneurial industry.

Entrepreneur.com is a purveyor of interesting business solutions and possibilities. They’ve written this way for many years, and been the muse behind countless small businesses. Recently, an article was published on this website which examined the possibility of a collegiate-level online reputation management course. The article pointed out that there are no such courses currently available anywhere on the market today, and that many people stand to benefit. The writer of the article then told an anecdote about his fiancee, whom he met on Tinder, and who went the extra mile to vet him as authentic by checking on his social media before they had any interactions.
If a Tinder date is so savvy to social media impact, it only makes sense that a business like Google or Yahoo or Wal-Mart or Wells Fargo would be as well. In fact, such methods of vetting potential clients are sort of becoming the regular mode of operations today. But what even those businesses don’t consider is that, in a national sense, in a global sense, in a digital sense, the rest of the world vets them the same way they vet potential candidates; only more harshly. A single bad review can plague a business for years, and cost countless thousands of dollars in potential revenue lost due to poor public opinion.
With this in mind, the advent of an online reputation management course seems like a great way to help prepare future generations with practical information that will actually help them succeed. Additionally, a collegiate institution that had a degree program centered around online reputation management could prove itself useful to a ubiquity of corporate and small business interests. If candidates can get hired out of college the same way they’re hired out of a trade school, suddenly that particular college has an increased student body and can offer more effective educational facilities to students. Since the internet is here to stay, it makes sense that college institutions will start moving this direction.
The Entrepreneur.com article ended with an outline of what such a course may look like. On paper, online reputation management courses at the collegiate level appear extremely possible.
Sanjay Shah knows first hand the struggles that come with Autism. His son Nikhil has the condition, but Sanjay Shah Denmark is determined that it isn’t going to hold his son or anyone else back in the future. Particularly, it isn’t going to hold them back from having a good time at the beginning of April, when Sanjay Shah is throwing “Autism Rocks“, a festival kicking off Autism awareness month.
The event was first set up in 2014 and has drawn in involvement from artists such as Prince, Drake, Lenny Kravitz, and Michael Bublé. This year the festival involved Tyga and Flo Rida in an effort to include a younger demographic. Besides music this year’s event features family fun in the form of laser tag, crazy golf, zip lining, a bouncy castle, horse rides, a rodeo bull, face painting, inflatable rides, a petting zoo, and barbecue.
The Dubai based businessman’s event has raised over six-hundred thousand pounds for the cause so far, and it seems to be on its way to raising far more. As Sanjay Shah’s wife Usha Shah put it; “While there was a lot of support for special needs people, we felt the need to provide greater exposure for such children. We wanted to encourage more research into why people are afflicted with these conditions and what can be done about it.”
While Sanjay Shah opted not to enter the medical career field, his business acumen has allowed him to contribute to the well being of individuals suffering from Autistic spectrum disorders and their families in his own way. Since his son’s diagnosis Shah has honed in on a brand of philanthropy that he personally understands the impact of. Autism Rocks originated from several other ventures by Shah, including jazz festival Blended, but more importantly originated from a deep caring about the plight of Autistic children across the globe.

Keith Mann is unlike most CEO’s you know (if you know any, that is). Instead of acting selfishly, he gives back to the community. He is the CEO and original founder of his own firm called DSP (Dynamics Search Partners). He lead the way in the effort to support an organization called Uncommon Schools, which assists NY youths with getting the school supplies they need to succeed, like testing supplies.
In fact, in addition to testing supplies such as those for the PSAT and AP (crucial for getting into colleges) the group has also been able to open a new school for high school students in Brooklyn, New York. Reportedly, the school is already thriving thanks to the fact that Keith Mann set aside $10,000 from DSP right in the beginning to ensure that the students would have all the supplies their hearts desired.
It isn’t just recently that the two groups – DSP and Uncommon Schools – have been working together. It was back in 2013 when the pair first started collaborating. Keith Mann has chalked it up to both of their dedication to helping kids succeed.
With 15 years of experience, Mann has a powerful resume. He has helped clients in the hedge fund management business with staff strategy, hiring, and compensation package delivery. He began as a manager at Dynamic Associates in their alternative investment division. Then, he worked his way up to the VP role before finally founding his own firm in 2009 (DSP).
Keith Mann saw a hole in the market of hedge fund managing and realized that the only solution eventually was for him to finally start his own firm that would solve these needs. That is why he formed DSP, which now only serves the niche market of alternative investment companies. He deals with all daily managing duties and makes sure that the team has the growth and focus they need to serve demanding and top quality clients. He hires, fires, and makes sure that the firm keeps on pace with changing trends around the globe. The company has locations all around the globe.
