Businessman and entrepreneur, Don Ressler, has started several successful start-ups that have gone on to become major brands in their own right. Ressler together with his long-term business partner, Adam Goldenberg, are the brains behind Intelligent Beauty. The two met in 2001 after Don Ressler sold his first start-up, fitnessHeaven.com, to Intermix Media. At the time, 19-year-old Adam Goldenberg, was Intermix Media’s COO.
Soon after, Ressler and Goldenberg formed Alena Media as an advertising division of Intermix Media. The division became Intermix Media’s only profit center. In 2005, News Corp bought Intermix Media; however, the new owners started ignoring the potential of Alena Media on Brandettes, which frustrated Ressler and Goldenberg. They left the company to pursue new opportunities.
Conception of Intermix Media
One could say that leaving Alena Media and its parent company, News Corp, was one of the best decisions the two young partners made. After two weeks of brainstorming in Adam’s living room, Intelligent Beauty was conceived. Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler had reached out to several of their former colleagues from Alena Media to help them come up with a brand.
The two partners settled on online performance advertising because they realized that they already possessed the skills to excel in the field. In addition, online advertising was a rapidly developing sector in the market at the time. Intelligent Beauty’s, first direct-to-customer company was an online cosmetics marketplace called DERMSTORE. After growing and developing DERMSTORE for two years, they founded SENSA – a weight-loss system developed by Dr. Alan Hirsch.
