Anthony Alexander Fall Designer Jewelry Fashion Show

This is a total link love post to my Dad. Before or around the time I was born my father started his jewelry and belts manufacturing business. Its a great entrepreneurship story: he was a history teacher in Greensboro, NC and wasn’t too crazy about his career choice. One day he decided to get his students involved in other cultures and came up with a hands on teaching device. He got together beads and leather strands so the students could build their own ethnic necklaces (sorry I can’t remember what culture they were from). Well the students ate it up but the real spark came when the other teachers started begging Anthony to sell them the necklaces. He quit the teaching job, started designing more jewelry, and hit the street. 30 some years later Anthony Alexander dominates its niche consumer industry.

So he just put together a mini fashion show video and is seeing great success distributing it so I popped the sucker on Google video and YouTube for him. Check it out. It even features Trish from ‘The Bachelor’! (The one that got kicked out and stormed in on the bachelor and his date while they had dinner).

All those years of soldering metal parts, running a leather press, and glueing parts as a kid paid off. My dad is the primary reason I quit my 6 figure salary to start my own business. The best part is having a go-to guy for basic business advice. Thanks daddy!
