Sara Blakely Business Ventures
Sara changed her mind about becoming an attorney and decided to accept a job at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, after receiving a very low score on the Law School Admission Test.
After a short tenure at Walt Disney, she agreed to work for office supply company Danka, where she marketed fax machines from door-to-door. She was subsequently advanced to national sales trainer due to her sales performance.
She despised the look of the seamed foot since she was required to wear pantyhose due to the humid climate in Florida for her sales position. However, she enjoyed how the control-top model got rid of panty lines and made her body look firmer.
Blakely paid $150 for the “Spanx” trademark on the USPTO website using her credit card. She took on all responsibilities for the company at first, including marketing, supplies, and positioning strategy. She preferred to place Spanx next to shoes in retail stores rather than in the hosiery area.
