Ranking among top entrepreneurs calls for effort and dedication, something Don Ressler has achieved so well. Don Ressler’s dedication and the zeal to achieve his dreams are part of the drivers that pushed him to emerge a leader and become a successful entrepreneur. He runs several successful businesses that he founded and co-founded and he is regarded a great mentor for upcoming entrepreneurs.
Don Ressler built his career since more than 15 years ago and he seems to have an even better future due to the progress he has made so far. Don Ressler entered into entrepreneurship through the launch of FitnessHeaven.com, which dealt with fitness products through an online shopping system. The company ran for several years and it was the best idea he ever had because it allowed him to learn many things about entrepreneurship and running a business. It is through this company that he got the basics of online advertising and marketing his business to rank well in the competitive industry.
In 2001, he made a decision that led to the sale of FitnessHeaven.com to Intermix Media. This transaction was meant to give him capital so he could pursue other better ideas. During the process, he was able to meet with Adam Goldenberg, whose ideas were inspiring and inclined towards great achievements. Their thinking was in sync, so they decided to venture into entrepreneurship as partners.
To start off, they founded Alena Media to work with online-based businesses by offering them marketing services. Alena Media was a great concept and its performance proved to improve into three years after inception. With increasing profit margins, the company gave them a reason to venture into bigger ideas and this pushed them to sell Alena Media in 2005.
After the company was sold, they started brainstorming to come up with a unique and strong idea. After many trials, they settled for Intelligent Beauty, an online-based beauty outlet. They founded the company in 2008 and it is today a profitable and stable business.
