I am reading a fabulously inspirational book from two of the Gilt Groupe Cofounders, Alexis Maybank and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson. By Invitation Only radiates with brilliance and fearlessly swift movement which catapulted the Luxury Flash Sale Concept into a Billion Dollar Business.
I had the pleasure of meeting Alexandra Wilkis Wilson for a Book Event at Houston’s Hotel Zaza last month and was in awe of Alexandra’s down to earth character. This culture appears consistent throughout my encounters with the minds of Gilt Groupe. I love it! Gilt Groupe has captured the luxury flash sale market and made it a shopping phenomenon, an addiction no doubt! I will use the inspiration I find from By Invitation Only and translate it into my journey.
My Take: Have an Idea, Create a Plan, then Move Fast!
With the right team, intellectual property and the largest network in the entire world- you can make it happen.
Besides the obvious inspiration from Alexandra and By Invitation Only, I am totally hooked on Gilt’s fabulous sales! If you haven’t joined Gilt Groupe, BUYER BEWARE… The deals are too good to pass up!
