Rodger talks Team Zoe's "growing pains" and his new buisness title!
I hope you all enjoyed the season finale of RZP Season 2. As you can see, the team is experiencing some "growing pains" as Rachel has so much on her plate and everyone (especially Taylor) is trying to figure out how they fit going forward.
I’ve watched from the sidelines for a long time and have obviously been involved with Rachel’s business but never in a formalized way. Basically, it’s gotten to a point where the opportunity and need for resources is really huge so Rachel and I decided that it’s time for me to play a more active role in the business. Luckily, my business partner (in my other business) Neil is an amazing confidant and friend and will be taking up the slack as I focus more of my attention on Rachel Zoe, Inc. The organization needs structure, strategies and a look towards the future and I’m really up for the challenge. Rachel has a wonderful team of agents, publicists and lawyers in place and I hope I can bring value to that team as well.
So far I’m really happy with how things have progressed. Besides acting as Rachel’s main business partner, I’ve been spending my day-to-day working on the digital side of the business. In just a few short months, we’ve managed to make a real impact with Rachel’s business online. I encourage everyone who’s a fan to get their "Rachel Zoe Fix" now that the season is over by signing up to Rachel’s free daily newsletter The Zoe Report at www.RachelZoe.com. Rachel provides her daily take on runway trends and products that feature them and then inexpensive ways to get those looks. In addition, you can get the latest Rachel news and insight by following her on twitter (@rzrachelzoe), becoming a fan on Facebook (facebook.com/rachelzoe) or being her friend on MySpace (myspace.com/rachelzoe).
Fingers crossed that you’ll be seeing us again next year. Until then, I wish everyone health and happiness.
