From Ivanka: It’s been a busy summer so far, and I’m looking forward to a slightly more relaxing month to enjoy the last days of the summer season and get energized for an exciting fall. This week, I’ll review the Spring 2016 apparel, handbag and shoe collections with my brand team, and I'll travel to Washington, DC for a quick trip to check on progress at the Old Post Office (soon-to-be the Trump International Hotel, DC). Mid-month, I'll take #TeamIvanka to Trump National Golf Course, Bedminster for our annual company offsite. It's an amazing property and occupies a very special place in my heart, as it's where I married Jared five years ago. Collectively, we'll reflect on the incredible things we've accomplished in the past year—the launch of IvankaTrump.com and the #WomenWhoWork initiative, among them—and we'll review our big goals for 2016 and work together to cast a vision for the year ahead. In between, we'll enjoy poolside cocktails, team yoga, meditation and plenty of good food. I can’t believe how far we’ve come in the two years it’s been since I began assembling this team—and we’re just getting started! We like to say we're dreamers and doers, that we want to inspire women to create the lives they want to live, and my team acts as central casting for this mission. I've always believed that hiring the right people is the most important investment you can make in your company and I'm grateful for the women on my team, and the things they bring to the table, every day. Following our retreat, I’ll cap off the summer with a family vacation—just Jared, myself and our kids. I can’t imagine a better way to end the season, and I’m looking forward to returning to the city just in time for fall!
