Multilevel marketing companies know them, too, and they count on their army of sellers to turn their friends, family, and social networks into buyers. In general, this is how multilevel marketing (sometimes called direct marketing) companies are structured: Aspiring sellers (often referred to as consultants or stylists) buy into a company either through purchasing inventory they then have to sell or through an educational program after which they are required to meet monthly, yearly, or quarterly sales goals.

I’ve watched its evolution as both an employee and a devoted fan. J.Crew and I are the same age. I wasn’t aware of this fact about us until 2010, but it feels like I should have always known.

On calls with investors, Drexler vowed to return J.Crew to a more classic style. J.Crew is nothing without good clothes, but as it works to fix its look, it has largely steered clear of the conversation that other struggling chains have had in the hopes of luring customers into their stores: What, besides apparel, a clothing brand can offer in 2017.
SHANGHAI (AP) — The arrest and disappearance of three labor activists investigating a Chinese company that produces Ivanka Trump-branded shoes in China prompted a call for her brand to cease working with the supplier and raised questions about whether the first family's commercial interests would muddy U.S. leadership on human rights.
300 items you can actually afford (without the 40% off) Remember when J.Crew was trying to push $500 lace jogging pants, $800 skirts, and $1,900 sweaters? Those days are over.The company is slashing prices in an attempt to tackle slumping sales and counter waning customer interest. Its most recent catalogue explicitly alerts customers to its newly affordable prices. “The perfect dress, the perfect price,” the copy alongside a $78 off-the-shoulder navy eyelet dress reads. “Keep an eye out for more prices that’ll make you smile, all throughout this Style Guide.” Photo: J. ...
