For years Sandra has been the owner of In Play Showroom at The California Market Center in Los Angeles, but I first met her when she was in sales and marketing at American Apparel. We clicked right away.

Knowledge is the new gold standard. In a market place cluttered with countless competitors vying for a finite amount of sales, you need to be innovative to have your business stand out. To do so, you’ll want to understand how and what can be done to rise above the competition. Lack of time, money or understanding are among the most common reasons companies forgo market research. Without breaking the bank, companies can conduct market research activities gaining insights from key stakeholders such as customers or retailers.

Starting a business is like setting out on a journey. To get to your destination you will need a road map, otherwise known as a business plan. It’s reported that up to ninety-five percent of new businesses fail within the first five years. One of the the primary reasons contributing to their failure is lack of planning. Whether it’s a need for business understanding, just trying to navigate the world as a new entrepreneur or simply a lack of time, many business owners set out to develop their new venture without a proper business plan.

Stan’s The Man at ENK! If you’ve ever attended the ENK Children’s Club in NYC, you probably know Stanley Kaye. The first time I attended ENK, Stanley was at the entrance, greeting everyone. With that first warm welcome, we became business friends. Stanley reminds me of a gracious host at a huge dinner party. He knows everybody, and wants each person to enjoy themselves and mingle both with new and old faces. He wants the occasion to be worthwhile and memorable, something people will talk about and want to come back to again and again.
