In London fand am Wochenende das Vogue Fashion Festival statt, bei dem Vorträge und Panel-Diskussionen von und mit wichtigen Mode-Experten gehalten werden. Eine Frau brillierte ganz besonders: Natalie Massenet, Gründerin von net-a-porter und Vorsitzende des British Fashion Council, hielt einen Vortrag über ihre bisherige Karriere und wählte dafür einen besonders spannenden Weg: Auf dem neu gegründeten instagram-Kanal „Nataporter – My stories so far“ zeigt sie weise Sprüche, alte Bilder und Zeitungsartikel. Die Power-Point-Präsentation 2.0, sozusagen. Es ist die bebilderte Geschichte einer der wichtigsten Frauen Großbritanniens in der Modewelt – und wir können noch einiges lernen.

Natalie Massenets Lektionen für’s Leben:

  • If you want success, be unique
  • The harder you work, the luckier you get
  • There is no recipe for success – it is as unique as you are
  • Sometimes it’s easier to get something big if you divide it into small amounts – I started by calling 30 people and asking them for £10,000 each
  • Why be like everybody else? Try to be like yourself
  • You only get one chance to make a first impression
  • Follow your instincts:I was told by a very respected American buyer that my first idea – to launch a range of luxury scented candles – would never work because nobody would ever spend more than a dollar on a candle. My other idea was a coffee bar chain. Evenutally I realised I had to go with my instincts
  • Don’t be afraid of what’s on the other side of the mountain
  • As long as you put  your consumer first there is no tension
  • Everything has to start somewhere and usually it’s small
  • People think success looks like a direct line but actually it’s a very wiggly line
  • Sometimes the plan you have for yourself doesn’t always turn out to be the plan
  • There is no „i“ in team
  • Never be afraid of what is on the other side of the mountain
  • When you visualise something with self-belief the universe conspires to help you – you still have to work hard but it can happen
  • Plan the best you can and then jump in and go for it. Adapt as you go. That’s how progress happens
  • Why walk when you can run
  • Don’t sleep on the job
  • Make yourself indispensable
  • Be nice to everyone because you will come across them again
  • The only limits are the ones we put on ourselves
  • Once you start a business you have to grow it and grow with it – starting a business is not just for Christmas
  • People ask me if it’s hard being an entrepreneur and a mother. It is.
Von Jessie

Ich bin Jessie Weiß, 32 Jahre jung, lebe verheiratet in Berlin, bin Mama von Levi (1), schwanger mit dem zweiten Kind sowie Gründerin von Journelles. Ich liebe Phoebe Philo, Stella McCartney und Isabel Marant, kann aus anatomischen Gründen nicht auf hohen Schuhen laufen, habe einen Céline-Taschentick, tanze und höre leidenschaftlich gern Hip Hop, kann mir selten Ironie verkneifen, leider immer noch kein Französisch sprechen, obwohl ich Paris für die schönste Modestadt der Welt halte, gucke am liebsten Jimmy Fallon, Jan Böhmermann, Game of Thrones oder entspanne beim Serienmarathon auf Netflix, bin ein kleiner Workaholic mit Multitaskingtalent, professionelle Instagram-Durchscrollerin, in jeder Lebenslage tollpatschig, habe ein Faible für skandinavisches Interior und einen Kissen-Tick, bin groß im Wellness machen und wäre daher noch lieber professionelle Hoteltesterin. Mode ist meine grosse Liebe, aber meine Kohle investiere ich eher in Reisen und Essen – und neuerdings fast ausschliesslich in mein Kind.

Als alter Bloghase – 2007 habe ich LesMads mitbegründet – ging im Oktober 2012 mein persönlicher Traum in Erfüllung: Ich habe mich mit "Journelles" selbstständig gemacht. Das Blogazine ist mein digitales Zuhause, News-Plattform, Modetagebuch und tägliche Anlaufstelle für spannenden Content rund um die Themengebiete Interior, Reisen, Beauty und sowohl High Fashion als auch Contemporary Labels und Highstreetmode.

Nebenbei habe ich die Modesendung It's Fashion auf EinsPlus von der ARD moderiert, berate Firmen im Social-Media-Bereich, halte Vorträge und reise um die Welt, um euch täglich den schönsten Content zu präsentieren. Im Juni 2015 habe ich mein eigenes Modelabel JOUUR. gegründet.

2016 ist mein Sohn Levi auf die Welt gekommen. Baby-Themen werden seither auf Mini Journelles behandelt und das nun auch wieder intensiver, da unser zweites Kind unterwegs ist.

Journelles ist inzwischen gewachsen: Wir sind ein sechsköpfiges Redaktionsteam im Berliner Prenzlauer Berg und haben im Sommer 2018 unseren ersten temporären Concept-Store, den Journelles Marché, eröffnet.

Mein Credo: Mode muss Spaß machen, auf Augenhöhe funktionieren und sollte sich nicht so ernst nehmen.

Ich habe Natalie Massenet bewundert bis ich herausgefunden habe, dass ihr Mann (Hedge-Fund-Manager) ihr das Startkapital für ihr Unternehmen zur Verfügung gestellt hat – quasi als Spielgeld. Sie hatte also 0 Risiko… sicher hatten viele ander tolle Frauen die gleiche Idee, aber leider keinen Typen mit dem nötigen Kleingeld – von daher beeindruckt mich ihre Geschichte nicht wirklich…

Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Kudos!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. Nevertheless think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, „pop“! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its field. Great blog!

Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that „perfect balance“ between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Hello there I am so thrilled I found your website, I really found you by accident, while I was searching on Aol for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say cheers for a marvelous post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don? have time to browse it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a great deal more, Please do keep up the fantastic job.

A large percentage of of the things you assert is astonishingly precise and that makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This particular piece really did turn the light on for me personally as far as this issue goes. Nevertheless there is actually 1 position I am not necessarily too comfortable with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core idea of your point, let me see exactly what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Well done.

Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work? I’m completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for novice blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

In the grand pattern of things you actually secure an A+ with regard to effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually confused everybody was first on all the particulars. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more correct at this point. Having said that, permit me say to you what did work. Your text is actually extremely persuasive which is probably the reason why I am making an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, whilst I can certainly notice the jumps in logic you come up with, I am not necessarily confident of just how you seem to unite the ideas that produce the final result. For the moment I will yield to your issue but wish in the foreseeable future you actually connect the dots better.

Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.

Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, „pop“!

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said „You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.“ She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
