To celebrate Boss’s Day 2018, we decided to introduce you to the bosses we know best. Stay tuned all week as we introduce you to seven (yes, seven) women who run the show right here in our own company — the women behind the clothing you love.
Introducing Jackey, Sales Manager

WHAT IS YOUR JOB TITLE?
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY IN YOUR LIFE LOOK LIKE?
My day starts very early, as every working mother knows — waking my children up, getting them ready for school, and then beginning my commute to work. Once in the office, I usually have a quick breakfast while reading my emails and setting my to-do list and priorities for the day. A typical day is spent working closely with different buyers discussing their business, working on new orders, and coordinating re-orders. In sales, we work very closely with our design team, costing team, and production team in order to make sure we are: 1) Offering the best product to our stores, 2) Presenting the best cost, and 3) Following through with shipping quality product to stores. Since fashion is ever-changing, we are constantly reacting to what is happening in the market. No two days are ever the same!
TELL US ABOUT A TIME YOU OVERCAME A CHALLENGE IN THE WORKPLACE.
When I started my first job as an assistant, my direct superior was not very organized. As a new college graduate, it was a challenge not only to learn the procedures of a new company, but also to take it a step further and figure out how to create new procedures in order to organize our office and keep it running smoothly from day to day.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR A FELLOW CAREER WOMAN WHO MIGHT BE READING THIS?
My advice for fellow career women: Be open to taking on new challenges, even if you think you aren’t ready. You are stronger than you realize. In the end, these new challenges will only make you stronger and more well-rounded. In difficult and challenging situations, try not to be too quick to react. Instead of letting your knee-jerk response get the best of you, take time to really think about the best way to handle the situation.
