Honestly, I Have A Tendency To Date Dorks. Which Means That A Lot Of Times, I Date Guys That No One Else Would Deem To Be A Hunk.
No Matter What I Hear About My Parents, About My Family, No Matter What I Read, The Fact Is That I'm Absolutely Proud To Be A Trump. For A While, I Was Worried That For My Whole Life I'd Sort Of Be Under My Parents' Shadow, But It's Not A Bad Shadow To Be Under.
In Both Business And Personal Life, I've Always Found That Travel Inspires Me More Than Anything Else I Do. Evidence Of The Languages, Cultures, Scenery, Food, And Design Sensibilities That I Discover All Over The World Can Be Found In Every Piece Of My Jewelry.
I Spearhead Interior Design For All Trump Projects.
My Mornings Are Really About Being With My Children, So I Tend To Lay Out My Outfit The Night Before When My Children Are Asleep So I Can Have A Quick Turnaround Time In The Morning.
Half Of The Time, I'm Walking Around A Construction Site, Then I'm Transitioning Into The Evening, Having Drinks With The Girlfriends Or Meeting With My Husband And Then Racing Back Home To Put The Kids To Bed. I Have Less Time, So I'm A Much More Efficient Decision Maker.
I'll Do Manicures, But I Won't Wear Nail Polish Because I Don't Have Time To Change It, And I Chip My Nail Polish So Quickly. I Cannot Last Three Days! I Think It's The Typing And The Use - Or Overuse - Of Tech. I'm The Chip Queen!
I Don't Own A Blow-dryer - I Don't Know How To Use It. Most Mornings, I Walk To Work With My Hair Wet.
I Remember, Growing Up, My Mother Had A Work Wardrobe. It Was This Very Compartmentalized Area Of Her Closet. It Was Suits, But She Would Never Wear Those Suits Out On A Date With My Father!
I'm A Closet 'Real Housewives' Fan. Any Season, Any Year.
My Mother Taught Me To Appreciate A Good Drugstore Beauty Aisle. I Regularly Use Aquaphor, Chap Stick, Purpose Face Soap, And Aveeno Body Moisturizer.
Marrying Jared Was The Best Decision I've Ever Made. You Realize In Life, Not That Many Things Matter That Much, But Your Choice Of A Spouse Is Everything. We're Truly Partners - He Supports My Work And My Ambitions. I Know That He's Always Got My Back, And I've Got His.
My Real Name Is Actually Ivana.
I Think It Is Bad Luck To Put Shoes On A Table Or Walk Under Ladders.
For Me, One Of My Life's Mission Is To Disrupt These Dated Concepts Of What It Really Looks Like And Means To Be A Working Woman. The Expression 'Working Man' Is Never Heard In Conjunction. But People Still Talk About This Sort Of 'Working Woman,' And There's A Bit Of Negativity To That Connotation.
I Used To Spend Summers In The Czech Republic With My Grandmother. I'd Watch Czech Cartoons.
I Auditioned For The Part Of Cosette In 'Les Miserables' On Broadway. It Didn't Work Out.
While I Tend To Favor Styles That Are Glamorous, Old Hollywood By Night And Very Sleek And Tailored During The Day, I'm Mindful Of The Fact That I'm 27 Years Old And Try Not To Make That Feel Dowdy Or Old.
Just Go Out And Do Things, And Those Things That Continue To Spark An Interest, Do More Of.
The Only People I've Ever Met Who Are Really Successful In Their Fields, Regardless Of What Field That Is, Are People Who Are Deeply Passionate About The Work They Do Every Day And Are Motivated By A Sense Of Purpose.
I've Started Ordering Out Of Teen Catalogues! T-shirts, Little Coats, And Jackets For Around $35 - They're Amazing. I've Become A Really Big Fan Of Urban Outfitters, Alloy And Anthropologie. Because I'll Pay For Quality, But I Will Not Just Pay For Trend. Psychologically, I Have Trouble With That.
It's Always A Huge Red Flag For Me When Somebody's Reticent Or Reluctant Or A Little Slow In Providing Thoughtful References That Are A Testament To Them As A Person And Their Professional Accomplishments.
I've Had Friends Of Mine Hire People That I Know Well Or That Have Worked For Me, And I Haven't Gotten The Call To Do A Reference Check. That's Almost The Most Basic Thing One Can Do To Assess Them.
I Generally Wake Up, Exercise And Read Through A Huge Amount Of Newspapers. I Get To The Office Somewhere Between 7:30 And 8:00 - My Brothers And I Are Always The First Ones In.
Mis-hiring Is A Huge Mistake. It's A Tremendous Opportunity Cost Throwing The Position To The Wrong Person. It's Often Something That Isn't Rectified For A Long Period Of Time.
Having Toddlers Always Means That There's A Fair Amount Of Chaos At Home, But That's Part Of The Fun.
From A Productivity Perspective, Prioritization Is Key. And It's Very Easy To Focus On Clearing The Decks Of Minutia, Especially When One's Very Busy.
I Spend A Lot Of Time Building Teams At Both Businesses - Both The Trump Organization And My Own - And Thinking About Who To Hire To Supplement The Team And Allow Us To Best Achieve Our Goals.
I Have The Good Fortune Of Working With Two Brothers Who Are Very Accomplished, Incredibly Smart, And Very Capable.
I've Successfully Convinced Others To Let Me Redevelop The Historic Old Post Office Pavilion On Pennsylvania Avenue In Washington, D.c. I Also Led The Acquisition Of The Iconic 800-acre Doral Resort &Amp; Spa From My Hospital Bed After Giving Birth To My Daughter, Arabella.
The Way In Which You Carry Yourself, Even When Seated At A Desk, Matters.
The Way In Which You Carry Yourself, Even When Seated At A Desk, Matters.
Yes, Negotiating Is About Money And The Bottom Line, But A Lot Of Times, It's Much More Emotional And Complex Than That. Realizing That The Economic Outcome May Not Be The Other Party's Top Priority Gives You More Chips To Play With And Will Enable You To Achieve Better Results Than You May Have Anticipated.
I've Had Deals Over The Years Where I Just Haven't Had Good Chemistry With The Person Across The Table From Me, So I've Said To One Of My Brothers, 'You Know What, You Will Be More Effective Than I Will.' And That Takes A Level Of Confidence.
I Obviously Have A Great Love And Appreciation Of Jewelry, Thanks To My Mother, Much To The Dismay Of Both My Father And My Boyfriends.
In My Role As Executive Vice President Of Development And Acquisitions For The Trump Organization And Founder And Ceo Of My Own Lifestyle Brand, I've Had A Lot Of Practice Negotiating.
Are You Asking For A Raise? Do Your Research And Know Your Market Value. Having An Informed Sense Of Your Worth, As Dictated By The Broader Marketplace, Will Give You Greater Confidence In Requesting Increased Compensation. It's Tough To Dispute Someone Who Can Back Up Her Assertions With Facts And A Smart, Articulate Argument.
When I Bid Out Our Construction Projects, I Call Contractors Personally To Close The Deal And Get The Best Price Or Enhance The Scope Of Their Deliverable. You Don't Get What You Don't Ask For.
Practice Negotiating, And Hone Your Style And Skills With Low-consequence Transactions. Call The Phone Company And Threaten To Switch Providers If They Won't Give You A Better Deal On Your Service Going Forward. Go To A Boutique And Ask For A Discount.
The Iconic Doral Was Once A Beacon For The Ultimate In Luxury Golf Resorts, And We Have Fully Restored It To Its Prior Grandeur - And Then Some. Besides The Sun, Golf, And Amazing Latin Food, Miami Is A City Of Culture That Has Something For Everyone.
Since My Family Owns The Trump National Doral, I Spend A Lot Of Time On The Course. Trump Doral's Golf Shop Is The Largest Pro Shop In The Country And Carries Limited-edition Pieces And Exclusive Brands.
Blt Prime At Trump National Doral Is Essential After A Long Day On The Golf Course. The Popover Bread Alone Is Enough To Keep Me Coming Back!
I Enjoy Wearing Fragrance Every Day And Have Found Myself Searching For The One Signature Scent That Truly Reflects My Personality And The Things I Love, Such As Bulgarian Rose. I Have Always Wanted To Create A Fragrance From Its Inception To Fruition And Articulate Femininity, Confidence, And Fortitude.
The More Natural Or Eco-based Products You Can Introduce Into Your Beauty Regimen, The More Beneficial It Is For Your Skin. It's Similar To Introducing Organic Food Into Your Daily Diet.
I Have Two Young Children, And They Both Adore Books. Reading Together At Bedtime Is One Of Our Favorite Nightly Rituals. 'Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site' By Sherri Duskey Rinker, 'The Giving Tree' By Shel Silverstein, And 'On The Night You Were Born' By Nancy Tillman Are Always On Our List.
I'm Not A Clone, And I'm Not A Minion.
I Pretty Much Only Drink Water, Tazo Passion Tea, Or Coffee With Half And Half, And It's An Ongoing Joke In The Office That I Never Have Less Than Three Glasses Of Water And Some Form Of Tea Or Coffee In Front Of Me.
My Diet Has Definitely Become Greener; However, I Am A Big Proponent Of Everything In Moderation. I Enjoy Having A Farm-to-table Dinner, As Well As Indulging In A Special, Decadent Treat On Occasion.
Basically, When I Get Home I Just Do Emails For Around Three Hours, Which Stinks. I Have A Thing About Getting Into Your Inbox Every Night Before Going To Bed. I'm Usually Working From My Laptop Or My Phone, Desperately Trying To Get My Inbox To Zero Before I Fall Asleep.
I Try To Put Out What I'm Going To Wear The Night Before. It Just Makes Things A Little Bit More Seamless In The Mornings. There Is Definitely, You Know, Sort Of A Trusty Work Uniform - A Chic, Feminine Dress That's Easy And Versatile.
