Ivanka Trump Closes $100 Million Fashion Business

After what has been a bumpy few years, the Ivanka Trump brand has shuttered its doors for good.
Started in 2007 as a fine jewelry company, the Ivanka Trump brand branched out into sportswear, footwear, accessories, fragrance, denim and other categories over the years. Before Donald Trump took office, the label was estimated to be a $ 100 million brand, but post-inauguration, the company had a rocky time with consumers due partially to #GrabYourWallet founder Shannon Coulter’s call for a boycott of the brand. Many shoppers associated the brand with the first daughter although she stepped away from the company before her father took office.
Coulter did not respond immediately to a request for comment Tuesday.
Executives at the company did not disclose how many employees were affected by the closure. Retail distribution dwindled in recent months, and earlier this month, Hudson Bay dropped the collection in a very public way. That was followed by the circulation of an online petition by activist group Care2, which  called for Lord & Taylor to do the same. The group had nearly reached its goal of 18,000 signatures Tuesday.
In September of 2016, the company had distribution in 800 stores internationally including such accounts as Lord & Taylor,

InStitchu Acquires George & King Business

InStitchu, the Australian made-to-measure men’s brand, has made its first acquisition.
On Wednesday, the company said that it had purchased George & King, a Sydney-based, custom, tailored men’s wear company with a similar operating model. Terms were not disclosed but the acquisition is expected to add 4.5 million Australian dollars to the brand’s sales.
In February, InStitchu received a $ 3 million strategic investment from Dayang, the world’s largest suit manufacturer, which was earmarked to expand its showrooms around the world while also elevating the in-store and online experience. Since the acquisition, InStitchu has grown to nine showroom in Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. It declined to provide a revenue figure.
“We have been actively looking for acquisitions in the custom men’s wear category globally as part of our growth strategy,” said James Wakefield, co-founder and co-chief executive officer of InStitchu. “Both InStitchu and George & King are passionate about making high-quality, made-to-measure men’s wear more accessible and affordable.

Yves Salomon Builds Accessories Business

French furrier Yves Salomon looks to take its business a step further. To offer clients a full gamut of lifestyle purchases, the brand will introduce accessories.
Footwear and bags, as well as boots produced in collaboration with Moon Boots and hats made in partnership with Maison Michel, are to be introduced for fall.
“We had soft accessories business, a little scarf range, but had never put any big effort into accessories because we were too concentrated on expanding the main line. We have been expanding a lot of our retail stores in the last few years and now we’d like our woman to be a complete woman with accessories too,” said the brand’s general manager, Thomas Salomon.
Rather than proclaim the accessories launch as a strategic new source of revenue, Salomon said: “There is no specific strategy about accessories; we are expanding the category to answer our customer’s request for a complete wardrobe. We wanted to use the collaboration with Moon Boot as a springboard to promote the rollout of our own footwear going forward, along with new hats, bags and other fur accessories.”
Salomon said that the accessories category would ideally comprise 20 percent of the brand’s general sales within three to five

Reebok’s Todd Krinsky Heads Up New Performance Business Unit

A MEASURED PERFORMANCE: Like other, more established athletic brand competitors, Reebok’s heritage is rooted in performance and now the company has set up a division dedicated to that — the Reebok Performance Business Unit.
At the helm of that sector is 25-year company veteran Todd Krinsky who has been named general manager. The brand’s running and training business units have been consolidated into its new Performance Business Unit. Fittingly, Krinsky earned his post for his own performance as general manager of Reebok’s Classic Business Unit. Leading that business, he helped to generate double-digit percentage gains for year-on-year growth over the past six years. Krinsky reports to Reebok president Matt O’Toole.
Big-name branding has been a key part of Reebok’s Classic Business’ upward climb. Gigi Hadid is the latest celebrity to appear in Reebok’s “Always Classic” campaign. With the spring campaign, the IMG model joined the ranks of Ariana Grande, Rae Sremmurd, Teyana Taylor, Lil Yachty, K-pop star Somi, street artists Felipe Pantone and SANY and model Sharina Gutierrez. Interestingly, Reebok’s Performance Unit will take on more of a lifestyle edge. Noting how the company has developed “strong credibility in the fitness world” in recent years, Krinsky said, “Today, our Delta symbol serves

WHY WAIT: The Fashion Group International’s Rising Star awards is still a few weeks away, but this year’s winner of the Hilldun Business Innovation Award will be Trove’s Mary Orton and Rich Scudellari.
A few years back while working on Wall Street at Deutsche Bank, Orton started the style blog Memorandum for professional women much like herself in need of where-to-work options. After switching coasts for San Francisco, she built up her Instagram followers and focused full-time to style blogging.
With the help of her husband Scudellari, she created a style blog aggregator that pulls in outfit posts from top bloggers and lets users save favorite pieces, or click to buy them. The way she saw it, fashion bloggers were creating all this professional content, but there wasn’t an ideal platform for them in terms of discovery. The affiliate link remains the same, so the relationship between the recommending blogger and the merchant stays intact. Trove helps bloggers monetize through affiliate links, gain new followers and get insight into which content resonates. Users can save items to a digital “closet,” and Trove provides corresponding analytics into elements such as how many users clicked through the images and the number of people who

Aaron Levant Retires From the Trade Show Business

Aaron Levant is ready for a new challenge. Levant, who founded the Agenda trade show when he was 19, is retiring from the business.
“There wasn’t an exit plan. It wasn’t something that I’ve contemplated for a long time. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for the past two or three months,” said Levant as he was arriving at the final Agenda Long Beach trade show that he will manage in California. “For me, it’s all about continuing to learn new stuff and take on new challenges, and as far as events and trade shows, I’ve learned everything that I can.”
Levant started Agenda, which is dedicated to the skate, surf and streetwear categories, in the back of a Thai restaurant in Long Beach in 2003. In 2013, Reed Exhibitions acquired the show for an undisclosed sum and Levant stayed on to help grow Agenda, oversee other shows and launch new ones.
For the past few years, Levant, who has said he believes the trade show category is dead, has transitioned Agenda from a business-to-business show to a more consumer-facing event. He introduced Agenda Festival last year, which included a two-day trade show followed by a one-day festival that was open to the

Adidas Disbands Digital Sports Business Unit, Leaving 74 Staff Jobs in Question

ADIDAS REALIGNS: Adidas has discontinued its Digital Sports business unit, calling into question 74 staff jobs.
The business unit was the driving force behind the development of wearable technology, consisting of technology experts in the fields of data science, experience design, algorithm development and software and hardware engineering. Adidas first ventured into the wearable area in 2001 with the launch of sensor-enabled footwear.
Asked about the layoffs, an Adidas spokeswoman said, “I don’t know that ‘layoff’ is the right word.” The 74 staffers worked out of a few Adidas offices including Portland, Ore.; Germany; China, and other parts of the U.S. Conversations will be held with each of them about “hopefully finding them other places in the organization,” an Adidas spokeswoman said.
The redefined strategy is in line with Adidas chief executive officer Kasper Bo Rorsted’s plans for more digital experiences. The realignment will entail the company consolidating some of its apps to focus on its two most powerful platforms Runtastic and its relaunched Adidas app. The latter is an AI-enabled shopping app that is meant to offer a more personalized consumer experience that was introduced last month at Dreamforce.
Adidas acquired the Austrian app maker Runtastic for a reported $ 240 million n August

Thom Browne Grows Collection, Business and Retail Footprint

MILAN — “It was time to bring it all home,” said Thom Browne of his focus on and the development of his namesake brand.
During a walk-through of his men’s pre-collection in Milan, which clearly showed how extensive his line has become, with every category expanding significantly, the designer explained how he is looking forward to the future as the company is expected to close 2017 with sales gain of 20 to 25 percent.
“I made a conscious decision a year ago to spend all of my time on my own brand, which is really coming together,” said Browne, adding that he had been “really happy” with his past collaborations. These include the Moncler Gamme Bleu line, whose last season was presented for spring 2018. As reported earlier this month, Remo Ruffini, chairman and chief executive officer of Moncler, said the company was also closing the Gamme Rouge collection, designed by Giambattista Valli, in line with a new strategy that is expected to be presented in February.
“I am evolving my brand, but making sure it’s my own way, so that you can see the Thom Browne sensibility. I am staying true to the label but reaching out to a bigger audience,” the designer explained.

Ragdoll Los Angeles Keeps Business Diverse to Compete

Los Angeles label Ragdoll carved a niche for itself when founder Lisa Larson started her line as a direct-to-consumer, online business selling essentials for the European cool girl.
Today the four-year-old brand has a store on 3rd Street and is eyeing another, continues on a growth trajectory that saw a 40 percent rise in revenue from the prior year and has largely built a business via a stable of loyal influencers and immediates.
Ragdoll began working with Nordstrom earlier this year and is now in 10 of the retailer’s doors along with its online shop. Although Larson set out to build a direct-to-consumer business, she expanded into wholesale about a month in after being approached by retailers such as Fred Segal and Satine. The line’s wholesale business totals about 300 accounts.
“Our customer is quite a broad age group,” Larson said. “We have a younger, trendier girl, but we also have an older, more sophisticated woman who likes to look chic and be trendy but not too trendy. I definitely design for myself first and foremost because I’ve always been into basics. Before I started my line, I would get more excited if I found a great sweater than a crazy skirt to

Swim and Active Collective Shows Highlight 2018 Trends, Brisk Business

Swimwear and activewear buyers got a leg up on the action and preview of spring 2018 trends during last week’s Swim Collective and Active Collective shows, which wrapped up on Tuesday in Huntington Beach, Calif., ahead of Miami Swim Week.
The shows, which normally take place about two weeks after Miami and in January, moved up on the calendar for the first time due to venue construction during their regularly scheduled dates, giving buyers a chance to concentrate on brands within a smaller show footprint before heading to the Miami sprawl of four shows.
The boutique-like shows, which featured about 222 swim and 200 activewear exhibitors ranging from Gottex to Reebok and emerging brands from Australia and Hawaii, are a key stop for regional buyers as well as majors such as Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.
“The theories run different from brand to brand. Here it is orders and in Miami you may be working your advertisements and events. Some are rolling out a specific launch in Miami, but they are able to pre-line with their key buyers here so they can narrow down their lines,” said Roy Turner, senior vice president and show director for organizer Emerald Expositions.

Fashion Business Leaders Convene at Tokyo Summit

The Global Summit of Women began its final day Saturday with a breakfast discussion titled, “The Business of Fashion and Design.”
MCM chair and chief visionary officer Sung Joo Kim, designer Hiroko Koshino, Natori founder and chief executive officer Josie Natori, and Eve Enterprises founder and ceo Xia Hua participated in a panel, moderated by summit president Irene Natividad.
The conversation addressed fashion as a topic of industry — giving the more politically and business-inclined attendees a look into fashion’s serious underbelly.
Said Hua of her philosophy, which has helped her gain more than 1.8 million menswear customers: “China used to be a culture of saving, now [it’s one of] spending — you have to be unique now. We have spent lots of money on marketing campaigns to build brand awareness — educating men on how to style themselves and how to dress themselves.”
Touching on a subject matter close to the conference’s heart, Kim pondered: “Especially in the luxury space, it’s mostly men-owned, men-run. Normally women ceos are kicked out in one to two years. Why is that?”

Haggar Sees Growth From E-commerce as Department Store Business Slows

Haggar is having a moment.
The Dallas-based brand, which celebrated its 90th anniversary last year, had both the best-selling non-denim casual pant and dress pant at U.S. department stores and national chains in the fourth quarter of 2016, according to the NPD Group.
But for Michael Stitt, chief executive officer, there’s more growth to be had, particularly online.
Haggar just relaunched its web site, which is the fastest-growing portion of the business, with improved functionality that is intended to enhance the shopping experience.
“Online sales on Haggar.com grew by 28 percent last year,” Stitt said. “Our digital team spent the last eight months developing, testing and perfecting our new platform. Our new site offers the most extensive selection of Haggar pants and suit separates in an easy to navigate environment.”
The site includes a new pant finder that asks consumers a number of questions to help identify the right style pant. It also offers a reorder function for the first time.
Haggar hired a chief digital officer, Eve Richey, two years ago and the company is investing in direct-to-consumer capabilities, including spending $ 5 million to modernize its distribution center, Stitt said.

After 41 Years in Business, Dok Kim Opens Second Store in Vero Beach

After 41 years in business, Dok Kim is the unlikeliest of retailers — self–made, still independent and having never advertised or had to deal with a return.
Dividing his time between a Nantucket store from May through October and a Florida unit from November until May, Kim recently relocated from Palm Beach, Fla., to a larger location in Vero Beach. The new 1,600-square-foot shop is located at 3315 Ocean Drive, and like his Massachusetts location, the decor is sparse save for his signature straw and leather handbags. But the longevity of his Dokkim label has taken a lot of legwork. “My history, it’s a fighting story. It’s not a business story, because it’s a struggle.” he said Tuesday. “First of all, in the whole world the quality of handbags is nothing. It’s a shame.”
Once consumers see his South Korean-made bags, which retail from $ 750 to $ 3,500, they recognize the workmanship and shoppers tend to become repeat customers. “The more people see how beautiful the bags are, the better the business becomes,” he claimed.
Challenging as it can be, the store owner generates $ 4 million annually, an improvement compared to last year. Raised in South Korea, Kim first arrived in the U.S. in

Coach Aims to Grow Men’s Accessories Business

It all began with the baseball glove.
Coach’s founders were impressed with the leather, stitching and handcraftsmanship used for the gloves that got softer and more supple with age. So with this as their inspiration, a group of leatherworkers created wallets and billfolds for men — and a brand was born.
Today, Coach is better known for its women’s leather goods, but men’s remains a sizable part of its business, accounting around $ 700 million, or 16 percent of its $ 4.2 billion in annual sales in fiscal-year 2015. That’s up from 14 percent of net sales in the 2014 fiscal year and 12 percent in 2013.
“We were originally a men’s brand,” said Diane Mahady, global head of merchandising for Coach, “and there’s no more masculine American reference than the baseball glove.”
Although she oversees all divisions, Mahady actually has a soft spot for the men’s business. She spent 12 years at Saks Fifth Avenue as a men’s divisional merchandise manager before moving on to Ermenegildo Zegna and Louis Vuitton. She joined Coach two-and-a-half years ago.
“Without question, it’s a growth area for us and we’re growing by double digits,” she said. This year, men’s will account for more than $ 700 million in sales, she said,

Cole has redesigned its logo and Web site, will launch a multimedia ad campaign called “Courageous Class,” has elevated its women’s and men’s sportswear and accessories offerings for fall and will open a new prototype store on Bond and Bowery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan on Sept. 15, which incorporates both omnichannel strategies and social initiatives benefiting the neighborhood.
In a recent interview at the company’s headquarters, founder, executive chairman and chief creative officer Kenneth Cole and chief executive officer Marc Schneider described what prompted the rebranding of the business, which generates $ 1 billion in retail sales worldwide across all licenses and product categories.
Cole said he had an epiphany a few years ago and decided that “in an effort to revitalize and re-energize and make the company relevant again, that we needed to make some significant changes.” It became apparent, he added, that all the things the brand needed to be doing, it couldn’t do as a public company.

How To Succeed In Starting Your Own Business: A No-fail Plan For Achieving Financial Freedom How To Finish Rich

How To Succeed In Starting Your Own Business: A No-fail Plan For Achieving Financial Freedom How To Finish Rich


I, Spiros, G. Raftis, at age 26, started a manufacturing business because I was fired. I had no business plan, no real product, and more importantly, very little money -I was devastated. I had devoted maximum effort, abilities, and long hours as a salesman for the owners of the company; in fact, I bought shares. I was an owner and was fired. My decision to start my own business was to: PREVENT GETTING RIPPED OFF AGAIN. I was convinced I could do it. OWNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS AFFORDS THE ONLY OPPORTUNITY OF BEING DIRECTLY REWARDED – THE MAXIMUM RETURN OF ONE''S ABILTIY. I wrote this book to share practical advice with anyone starting a business. This is a no-nonsense book with non-MA-theories. More practical advise than theory. Most of the messages, lessons, and Chapters within are my experiences. I did not anticipate most of these events. I know now going into business one will have to face most of what is written in these pages. For example, I thought after one year in business, getting a loan from a bank would be easy. Instead, I got a lesson from my banker. I still remember his words: Spiros, if something happens to you, how does the bank get back the money it loaned you for your valve business? The bank does not want to run a valve company. The pages repeat ideas that have been proven to be valuable for anyone seeking success in starting a business. It is a must-read, must-buy book.

Trump Excels at Business, But He Has No Business in International Politics

Listening to Donald Trump’s egotistical take, you’d think his loud business personality translates perfectly into international politics. Mexico acting up? No matter; he’ll hop on the phone and curse Mexico out. China spiffing us in trade deals? Who cares! A solution is a phone call and an immature insult away. “Your country sucks, China!” Problem solved.

Except while that might work on TV, it would backfire in reality. As several commentators have already pointed out, Trump’s “refusal to act diplomatically [would be] catastrophic for the lead diplomat of the United States.” Diplomacy requires subtlety, tact and restraint — something everyone from Sun Tzu to Henry Kissinger agrees on. But screaming insults like a petulant toddler? That sort of behavior is best left on The Apprentice.

I’m not saying business experience has no place in politics. It obviously does. Outsiders bring valuable insights into the political process, and a more realistic representation of how business works — stressing restraint and negotiation over needless offense — translates extremely well into international diplomacy.

But Trump’s view of how his own bombastic business personality would play in the political realm is remarkably shortsighted. He speaks of countries as if they were individuals, and he acts like solutions to complex problems lie in three-word slogans. That pithy ideology might work for Trump’s personal life, but it would spell disaster if adopted by the president of the United States. In Trump’s worldview as presented thus far, one gets the impression that Israel-Palestine can be solved by a few stern phone calls and maybe a fancy steak dinner afterwards. If that fails, then bombs should do the trick. Yeah right.

Obviously, Trump’s oversimplification of international relations has appeal. Most people don’t have the background knowledge, the patience, or the time to truly consider the intricacies of, say, the development of ISIL. As Robert Greene writes in The 48 Laws of Power, short mantras have an intrinsic draw, a resonance that longer, more nuanced takes on things just don’t have. And that’s fine — for the average citizen. But the president of the United States, wielding a governmental branch clothed in immense executive power, should have a more thorough understanding of foreign policy.

He or she should understand that illegal immigration is not a problem the Mexican government alone can control, or that empirical evidence suggests undocumented immigrants actually commit less crime than native-born Americans. He or she should acknowledge that a disgusting phenomenon like ISIL has complex political, religious, and historical underpinnings that will not be, cannot be, dismantled by a few well-placed explosives — rhetorical or military. A responsible president should know that criticisms of China and Japan for manipulating currency should be restrained and qualified, to acknowledge (for example) Japan’s two decades of careful economic policy aimed at counteracting slumping fiscal performance. And so on.

Because in foreign policy, jabs aren’t taken lightly; and unlike in Trump’s business affairs, insulting a country ticks off a heck of a lot more people than the one person on the other side of the phone line.

Business isn’t simple; foreign policy isn’t either. If Trump wants to be taken seriously by the general electorate, he should demonstrate the nuanced understanding of foreign policy exemplified by candidates ranging from Jeb Bush to Hillary Clinton.

As things stand now, the world is far too dangerous and complex a place for Donald Trump to be at its helm, his hand hovering over the nuclear button, ready to shout “you’re fired!” at anyone who ticks him off.

The “People Power” Internet Business Superbook Five Books on Making Money Online

The “People Power” Internet Business Superbook Five Books on Making Money Online


The five books on making money online are as follows: Book 1. Business Website, Collect Money, Send Things Book 2. Internet Selling (Sell on Your Website & on the Big Internet Stores) Book 3. Online Classified Ads Book 4. Internet Marketing, Website Optimization (Get Visitors to Your Website) Book 5. Computer-Internet Jobs-Business E-commerce lowers the cost of transmitting information and makes it accessible to everywhere on the planet in under a second. That’s great but that’s all it is, a faster, more accessible means to do business. If your product is not very good and you have problems running your business, e-commerce will not magically make you rich. Many players tried to make money from the internet itself like ebay, amazon, google, etc. but most failed. Many retail internet websites failed but some fared alright, the ones that had a niche market where the products they sold could be easily shipped by a delivery company and already established companies who merely put out a website to enhance their existing business. The major disadvantages of internet sales are as follows: Some things are meant to be sold in person like clothing, a car, flowers, etc. Some things are simply not condusive to being shipped because it costs too much like dog food, garden tools, etc. Customers are picky about some things, they complain a lot and there’s room for fraud. Consider vitamins. There are fakes and cheap knock-offs. If you buy a bottle at your local health food store, you feel safer than buying a bottle over the internet. The shipping costs make some things not amenable to being sold over the internet like small, inexpensive things where the cost of shipping is as much as the product itself. Anything that’s perishable can’t be sold. A big part of buying is impulse. You see something at the mall and buy it. Some products have to be inspected. You can’t get a feel for them over the internet. Some products don’t have enough buyers to justify a websit

Ivanka Trump Discusses Fashion and Business — But No Politics, Please

With an expanding signature collection of her own, an executive role at the Trump Organization and a father who’s poking the political hornet’s nest with his decidedly non-PC style, it’s safe to say Ivanka Trump has a lot going on.
Accustomed to operating in overdrive, the Wharton grad is now suiting up 3,500 Trump Hotel staffers in uniforms she designed. Trump handles design and the creative vision for the company’s nine existing properties and four yet-to-be-opened ones in Baku, Azerbaijan; Rio de Janeiro; Vancouver, and Washington, D.C. She also serves as executive vice president of development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization. With two young children and an equally ambitious husband in Jared Kushner, the self-described “American wife, mother and entrepreneur” may represent a different sort of bold-faced paradigm in the fashion business. While that alone is something of a feat, it is not a moniker the former model acknowledged in any way during an interview last week.
Speaking about her new uniform designs, Trump very much stayed on message. While she has cheered on her father Donald’s take-no-prisoners presidential bid to her nearly 1.7 million Twitter followers and 582,000 more on Instagram, she wasn’t about to engage on political matters. “I

Jos. A. Bank Veteran to Launch Online Men’s Business

A new player is poised to enter the men’s wear scene.
Steve Marshall, the former divisional vice president of merchandising for Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc., has teamed with some of his co-workers at the Hampshire, Md.-based chain to create Wilkes & Riley.
The business, which will launch in November as an online play, will offer a full collection of men’s wear, from tailored clothing and furnishings to sportswear.
“Retail has been in my blood since I was a kid,” Marshall told WWD. He started his career at Bugle Boy and moved on to Merry Go Round before joining Jos. A. Bank in 1999.
Marshall said he was offered the opportunity to remain with Bank by its new owners, Men’s Wearhouse, which purchased the business for $ 1.8 billion last year, but didn’t want to relocate to California, where the corporation is headquartered. So he opted instead to remain in Maryland and use the skills he had acquired over the years in sourcing and merchandising to open a new company.
Wilkes & Riley will be self-financed and Marshall said he has some other investors as well.
“I always wanted to run my own company and be the head of the ship,” he said. “Jos. A. Bank was a

Iowa’s Görtz Haus Learns That Refusing To Host Gay Weddings Is Bad For Business

The Christian owners of an Iowa wedding venue that turned away a gay couple in 2013 are shuttering their business.

Located in Grimes, Iowa, the Görtz Haus has been operating as an art gallery, bistro and wedding venue for 13 years, but has struggled financially in the two years since owners Betty and Richard Odgaard cited their Mennonite faith when they declined to host Lee Stafford and Jared Ellers’s wedding, USA Today and other outlets are reporting.

Stafford and Ellers quickly filed a discrimination complaint through the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, and although the Odgaards agreed to a $ 5,000 settlement, two heterosexual couples canceled their planned nuptials at the venue after the case hit the news. Although the deposits were non-refundable, both couples received their money back.

“We knew that the business was going to be in trouble almost immediately,” Richard Odgaard told The Daily Signal. “We had to get rid of the wedding business to avoid another complaint and possibly a higher penalty.”

“I would never discriminate in any area that’s not who I am. I just couldn’t celebrate their wedding because of my faith,” Betty Odgaard told KCCI.

In January, it was announced that the Görtz Haus would stop offering wedding services altogether, but the financial loss has been significant. Now the Odgaards say the business, which previously hosted between 15 to 25 weddings a year, will close, possibly as early as August.

Joking that they “didn’t get the Chick-fil-A response” from locals, the Odgaards say they think things might have turned out differently if their situation had been left to a popular vote or even an area judge.

“I think if people in Iowa would have had a chance to vote on this, it would have never have been this way. People in Iowa are pretty conservative,” Betty told The Daily Signal. Added Richard: “This was all administrative judgement. The [gay couple] had a platform to file their case and we didn’t get our day in court with a jury of our peers.”

Still, as The Des Moines Register points out, the Odgaards have received a fair amount of support. During a recent campaign stop in Iowa, Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz argued that the Odgaards were victims of “liberal fascism,” noting, “The modern Democratic Party has decided their devotion to mandatory gay marriage in all 50 states is so unforgiving that there is no longer room for defending religious liberty.”

Echoing those sentiments was Eric Baxter, senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty that represented the couple and aims “to protect the free expression of all faiths.”

“It’s shocking that the state prefers forcing Betty and Richard Odgaard to close the Görtz Haus Gallery, rather than allowing them make a living without violating their religious beliefs,” he told the Register in a statement.

Art & Business

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls” ~ Pablo Picasso (Spanish Painter, Sculptor 1881-1973)

Art is important to society, any society through the ages ナ combining art and business is not new. Think of the centuries where art and business were very much part of the citizen’s world. There were the royal courts who paid for, promoted and gave the arts a grand platform or of the Medici of Italy (14th to 18th centuries) or the maligned, then beheaded royals of France (10th to 19th centuries) they all created art, luxuries and businesses never seen before, which are valued to this day.

Today we seek beauty and have great philanthropies and organizations which give the arts a platform for a broader audience, never seen in its power and influence before. We now observe the merger of art and business in an environment enjoyed by millions in all corners of the globe. Shining a spotlight on art and cultural relationships and business provides a better understanding between people of diverse nations. The quest for better communications through the arts help define businesses. By associating with the arts, businesses have discovered that their brands are enhanced and increase their reach and in the end their profitability. With the mantra of ‘behind every art-form is a great visionary leader’, this would include the business of pursuing excellence in products and service, prestigious organizations and venues report great results.

Heidi Steiger, President of Topridge Associates, expresses her perspective on the increasing importance of art and business:

“I have always thought the business and art worlds should work closely together. The arts can bring progress to the world of business – by thinking, looking and acting outside-of-the-box. After all, mankind has been communicating in pictures since the dawn of the caveman. We have an overwhelming need to document, remember, and comment on the world in which we live. My most significant experience of this was managing the art collection at Neuberger Berman while I was also leading its private wealth management business. A number of my partners and I collected contemporary art. The rule was that art was on public walls and not in our offices. Asset management is a very intellectual pursuit, but art made us more approachable and human to our clients. It said we cared about them and that we viewed the world through a different lens which provided us with insightful ideas resulting in good performance in their portfolios.”

Greg Furman, Chairman and CEO of Luxury Marketing Council, has observed the many changes in the field of luxury for more than twenty years. His expert opinion is shared by many
“As the disparity between ‘the have’ and ‘the have nots’ continues to widen, public, government and media scrutiny are increasingly critical, and all luxury brands’ involvement in the community will dramatically increase. More than ever luxury brands must be involved, and seen as being involved, as outstanding corporate citizens; not as disengaged, haughty, removed purveyors of luxury products and services to the elite one percent with no concern for the bigger picture and larger community. As never before it is imperative for luxury brands to more tastefully and aggressively promote their involvement in the arts. Creativity and bottom-line-driven understanding are essential to maintaining and enhancing
the luxury brand’s reputation.”

It is said that beautiful objects in art, in design, in furniture, in fashion, in poetry are all an extension of the human spirit’s need and search for beauty. Art takes us through the tunnel of life to lightness and joy. The patronage of the arts also fulfill the dreams on every level of life and it is significant now and for future generations. The strong reputation and joint goals of art and business have gone through periods of challenge and growth. Artistic disciplines combined with business acumen address the complex and ever-changing needs of building robust arts and business communities with ever greater success.

” I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few or freedom for a few” ~ William Morris (English artist, poet 1834-1896)

My Business Almost Cost Me My Marriage

One Saturday afternoon while driving to the mall, I expressed concern to my husband over our relationship. Nothing was really wrong, we weren’t arguing or fighting. In fact, we weren’t really talking much at all — that was the problem. More and more, I felt as though I were living with a roommate, not a lover.

We’d sit side-by-side on our recliners each night, but never said more than five or six words to one another. There was no connection.

On this drive I looked over and said, “Babe, I’m worried that if we don’t get on the same page

“I’ve thought the same thing,” he replied.

I was stunned. I felt like someone had sucker-punched me in the stomach. He’d thought the same thing? He’d considered divorce? What? When? Why hadn’t he said anything? If I hadn’t said anything, would he have?

I swallowed hard and said, “You have? OK, then it’s a good thing we’re talking now. What are you feeling?”

My husband isn’t one to share his feelings or emotions, so I knew that I was making a tall request. And in a split-second, it was as if a dam had burst. He began telling me, firmly and deliberately, his perspective on our marriage.

Many of his concerns were valid. I’m not the best housewife. I’ve never enjoyed cleaning, which is why we have a housekeeper come twice a month. I do let my daughters dress themselves, which means that at times they walk out of the house looking a little crazy. I let dishes sit overnight and I’m ok with a pile of books and papers stacked at the bottom of the staircase.

And then he hit me with, “I resent your business.”

“I know this could blow up for you, I can see that. But I don’t see what your business is doing for our family,” he continued on. As he spoke, I heard his words in slow motion.

How could he be saying this to me? I thought we were making progress? Just this past year we had been accepted into a couple’s mastermind program and I thought he was finally starting to climb on board with the business — our – business.

But I said nothing. I listened. I validated. And then I shared my own concerns about our marriage.

I felt lonely. I felt like I was a single mom who happened to live with the father of her children. I wanted a partnership. I wanted to know that we were equally sharing the load of maintaining a household and raising our children.

He wanted us to establish roles. I wanted him to be more present. He wanted to see the financial impact of my business. I wanted to talk to him about the numbers. He wanted to see the numbers, but wanted nothing to do with business talk.

In talking for nearly two hours, we realized we both wanted the same things, we just wanted them in different ways.

My story isn’t unique. In fact, in speaking with many of my entrepreneurial colleagues, this story is the norm and the exceptions are those rare, unicorn-like partners who are completely supportive, 100% on board and who are interested in helping the business in any possible way.

The rest of us have to battle with a variety of scenarios ranging from not-at-all supportive to kind-of-supportive when it’s convenient and everything in between.

So how do we divorce-proof our marriages while also following our passion and confidently building the business of our dreams?

The truth is, you really can’t “divorce-proof” a marriage. There’s no set it and forget it system. It takes intentional action every single day.

Notice I used the word action and not work. Too many people say marriage is work. And that’s part of the problem. We’re treating our relationships like business transactions — scheduling, planning, creating to-do lists — rather than treating them as opportunities for loving acts of kindness.

Here are three steps you can take to ‘divorce-proof’ your marriage and keep your business:

1. Establish Roles

When my husband looked at me and said, “There are certain roles men and women have,” I literally rolled my eyes and considered slapping him in the face. What, are we back in the 1950’s? I immediately made assumptions about what “roles” he believed I should fill.

But as we began talking, I realized he didn’t necessarily mean that my role had to be the “traditional stay-at-home mom.” More so, he meant that we each needed to identify what position we were playing on our marital team.

Who was the dishwasher? Who was the checkbook balancer? Who cooked and on what days? Who made the bed? Who made the coffee? Who took the kids to school and who picked them up? Who gave them baths and who read the bedtime stories?

Once we sat down and went through our list of responsibilities and divided up the workload there was an immediate shift in our energy. We both breathed a sigh of relief.

As you consider your own relationship, ask yourself, “Do we have our roles and responsibilities defined or are we just leaving it up to chance, assuming one of us will get it done?”

If you’re each thinking the other should do it, but it’s never been clearly defined, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment and resentment. Make the change right now.

2. Have a Monthly Money Date

As an entrepreneur, you should already be having a monthly money date with yourself to make sure you know exactly how much you’re bringing in and where it’s all going. But if you’re married, then you should definitely consider sequestering your love for a desert night out with your financial statement and look over the numbers together.

Not only does this keep you accountable as the CEO of your business, but it also helps your partner see how your business is (or can) impact your financial future.

A quick note: If you’re not making money in your business yet, that’s okay. Have your money date anyway and let your spouse know your projections for the following month or explain why you invested where you did and the return you expect to get. Transparency is key.

3. Make an Excuse

The most important of all, make an excuse to spend time with your spouse and to meet their needs! The chief complaint most partners make of their entrepreneurial mates is, “She’s always on the phone or computer working.”

Your partner only feels this way because his or her needs are not being met. If your spouse has ever said to you, “You work too much,” it’s their way of saying, “You’re not giving me what I need.”

Make an excuse every single day to do something for your partner. Shutting down your laptop an hour earlier, preparing a favorite meal or just sitting next to each other, holding hands while watching some mindless show. Think of your partner and do something that would make them feel thought of, loved and more important than your business.

Take action right now: Grab a sheet of paper and make a list of 30 simple things you could do for your partner. That’s your action plan for this month! Remember, your time and attention are the most valuable gifts you can give the person you love. Be sure and add that in a few extra times.

I almost lost my marriage because I wasn’t doing these 3 simple things. Ever since we’ve made these steps common practice in Casa de Luna, it’s as though a new relationship has sprung. My husband and I are working together as a team, he’s amazing with the kids – especially the few evenings each month when I have coaching calls – and overall, our house feels like a loving, supportive, encouraging home.

The key is infusing LOVE into each step. Because after all, isn’t that what we all want most – to love and be loved?

Now over to you. Which of these steps will you implement first? Do you have your own story of how your business has threatened your relationship? Let’s chat in the comments.
