As an entrepreneur who has struggled through the whole process of launching and managing startups, Don Ressler has come out as a motivation to young entrepreneurs looking for a way to launch and manage their businesses. He has run several successful businesses that he began from zero and he is also working with different young professionals to help them understand the way entrepreneurship works.
His passion for business has seen him grow gradually to becoming one of the most respected entrepreneurs in the online world for the contribution he has made in transforming how people navigate online shopping. Don Ressler is the brain behind a number of successful online stores that he co-founded with other partners.
His first attempt at business came when he launched FitnessHeaven.com, a company that ushered him into the world of entrepreneurship. The company allowed him to learn many things about the market and when he gathered experience, he sold FitnessHeaven.com to Intermix Media in 2001. This process raised the necessary capital that would help him to proceed to the next step in his career as an entrepreneur.
When he met with Adam Goldenberg, Don Ressler realized he had similar interests in business as Adam. Therefore, they came together and launched their first business together. Adam and Ressler founded Alena Media, which helped companies in marketing and managing different services. Alena Media grew and generated huge profits within few years. This motivated them to do even greater things with the skills they had acquired from the business. In 2005, they sold Alena Media.
The sale of Alena Media gave the duo capital that helped them to launch a bigger business. The next step in their partnership was to launch Intelligent Beauty, a company that offers beauty products in different categories. Intelligent Beauty has been serving the European and America markets and has remained competitive since the company was founded in 2008.
About JJustFab (currently TechStyle Fashion Group)
In 2010, Don Ressler and Adam made another major move when they launched an online fashion subscription retail called JustFab. The company started with serving the American market before it expanded to other regions. To finance its expansion, JustFab borrowed $76 from several venture capitals including Matrix Partners and Rho Ventures.
This money was invested in developing the company to enter the European market, specifically the United Kingdom and Canada. Today, TechStyle Fashion Group (JustFab) stands out as the most profitable online subscription retail with over 10 million subscribers.
