Most of the businesses Don Ressler has launched have grown into established ventures that have stood independently. He is a passionate entrepreneur with success in many areas of business. One of the platforms where he has emerged triumphant and successful is the online retail industry. Don Ressler has managed several businesses, some of which he sold along the way while others still run under his control.
Don Ressler started his career as an entrepreneur with the launch of FitnessHeaven.com, a company that opened opportunities for learning and gaining experience. His experience at this stage was not bad because he was able to make profit amid challenges. After some time, Ressler put the company on sale and Intermix Media showed interest. They sealed a deal in 2001 and he raised capital enough to kick start his next idea.
After handing over the company, Don Ressler met Adam Goldenberg, who came in as a partner. They decided to venture into business together since they seemed to have similar ideas and dreams. During their first year, they launched Alena Media, a company that provided marketing services to other businesses. Although this was their first venture, they earned revenue to the tune of millions, something that motivated them to move to bigger businesses.
About Intelligent Beauty
With great experience and skills, the two proceeded with their journey and their next step was the launch of Intelligent Beauty on Crunchbase. The company was born after a brainstorming session that invited several professionals. In 2008, they had gathered all the necessary resources and they launched Intelligent Beauty, marking the beginning of their journey in fashion and beauty retailing. To date, Intelligent Beauty has remained one of the most profitable businesses the duo runs and they are looking to expand to bigger markets in near future.
What followed after Intelligent Beauty was the establishment of JustFab, a subscription retail that would be confined to the sale of fashion items. The company was launched in 2010 and to boost its growth, they sought funding from Matrix Ventures amounting to $33 million. In 2013, a new brand, FabKids, was added to the line and it would run separately. FabKids offers kids’ fashion products and runs on a similar script like JustFab.
Christopher Burch believes that technology and fashion are intrinsically linked together. He believes that fashion is sort of a promoter of new technology. Burch states that as new technology comes out, it may not be fashionable or cool at first. The fashion industry and trends can remedy this.
Chris gives an example of the boombox. When it first came out, people were fascinated by it, but it was not hip or trendy. With the promotion from movies and TV shows, the boombox slowly became accepted and part of the norm. Over time it became fashionable and cool to rock a boombox at the beach. In this way, fashion helped new technology get broader use and acceptance among the general population.
Mr. Burch believes that fashion plays a very important role in making technologies more acceptable and more widely used by people. Technology can alter our lives for the better and provide us with lots of new and exciting features that we can use. However, without fashion promoting new technology, the new technology would never have an impact on the people and change our lives for the better.
Christopher Burch also points out that technology is even impacting fashion. There are plans underway to create shoes that could charge electronic devices while you are walking or jogging. Some designers are using recycled materials such as bicycle inner tubes and radiator copper to create shirts, jackets and even gowns. Technology is also making gear more safe. For example a motorcycle accessory worn around the neck can pop open like an airbag to prevent injury and death during an accident. There is even a self painting dress, which uses inks that are pumped through a material to change the color of the dress. It is known as a pseudomorph dress.

PR World Awards has recently singled out Darius Fisher for its coveted “Business Development Individual of the Year” award. PR World Awards specializes in finding individuals that have stood out from their colleagues with outstanding performance in marketing, public relations, and other corporate communication fields.
Darius Fisher has made a name for itself by working hard as the leading executive of Status Labs. As the president of Status Labs, Darius Fisher has guided his company through its ups and downs, which has led to a sizeable increase in revenue growth for 2015. In fact, in just three years, Darius Fisher has managed to make Status Labs grow by over 900%.
According to Huffington Post, Fisher’s primary strategy to improve the performance of Status Labs was to expand its digital service offerings and improve communication with their clients at both the micro and macro levels. In order to better facilitate relationships with his clients, Fisher expanded the customer service department at Status Labs and invested considerable time and resources into the sales department. Through these efforts, Status Labs has cultivated a public relations and marketing team that any company would be proud of.
It’s for these reasons, as well as many more, that PR World Awards decided that no one else was as deserving of their award for individual achievement as Darius Fisher. Of course, Fisher hasn’t stopped making improvements to Status Labs since receiving the award. As of right now, he is still working with his teams to improve communication and is continuing to build on the progress that his teams have already made in the past several years.
Given the services that Status Labs offers, it makes sense that Darius Fisher would be so concerned with ensuring that his company keeps up a positive reputation. After all, no one wants their company to have negative press, especially one that specializes in managing it. Luckily, Darius and his team have nothing to worry about, as they have clearly built a reputation for excellence. In fact, this isn’t even the first time that Darius Fisher has received an award from PR World Awards. Just last year, Fisher and the team at Status Labs received an award for outstanding innovation.
