If you ask me, stereotypes need to go away and they need to go away as soon as possible. Today, it doesn’t matter where you come from or what your background is, you can do anything that you set your mind to if you have the right attitude, mentality, and work ethic. That is most definitely the case with Don Ressler, an entrepreneur that is a jack-of-all-trades and able to do a little bit of everything. He has made it a habit to be as well-versed and talented as possible when it comes to his life. He is not afraid to take chances, put himself out there, and try something that might be a little different.
When people heard Don Ressler was going to be co-CEO of JustFab Inc, & CEO of Fabletics, they did a double take. However, when you have the business knowledge and wisdom that Don Ressler has, anything is possible. He is also wise to surround himself with people that are like-minded and work just as hard as him. That way, they can bounce ideas off each other and see what sticks and what they like. Don Ressler’s partnership with Adam Goldenberg has been incredibly successful for JustFab. They bring out the best in each other.
The great thing about today’s Internet age is what you don’t know, chances are you can find it somewhere on the Internet. It is out there if you are willing to look for it, search for it, and find it. You might not start out as an expert in a particular field, but you hire people that can handle the stuff that might not be your forte. It is all about surrounding yourself with a quality team. Ressler will be the first to say that he is not an expert in everything.
That’s the key to being a good Co-CEO, it means you aren’t afraid to ask for help, ask questions, and learn more. You have a curious mind and either you take the time to learn something or you surround yourself with experts. That is why all of his businesses are doing so well and having such success. Everyone works together, hand-in-hand, to make it run smoothly. This is not his first rodeo nor will it be his last. This is only the begging for him and that is what is exciting. He is young, hungry, and ready for whatever is next in his career.
