    #SPANX founder #SaraBlakeley, stuns employees with big surprise to celebrate billion-dollar deal

    SPANX founder Sara Blakeley, stuns employees with big surprise to celebrate billion-dollar deal the company signed recently.Spanx, one of America’s most prominent shapewear companies, is now worth $1.2 billion after inking a deal with Blackstone. To celebrate this, the founder surprised employees with flight tickets and $10k each.

    Reposted from @sarablakely Behind the scenes @spanx telling the employees (some live and some on zoom) about the sale and partnership with Blackstone. It was an emotional announcement filled with happy tears acknowledging how far we’ve come. And then the tears really started to flow when I surprised everybody with 2 first class @delta plane tickets to anywhere in the world and $10,000 cash to spend on the trip. I really want every employee to celebrate this moment in their own way and create a memory that will last them a lifetime! Cheers to 21 years of magic and many more to come …. 🥂#ToNewBeginnings#Spanx #Celebrate #21#NextChapter #TheBestIsYetToCome

    from @sarablakely Today marks a HUGE milestone for @spanx and for me personally. People have asked me for 20 years, “When will you sell Spanx?” And for 20 years I would say… “I’ll just know.” Well that day is today. I’m proud to say I’ve partnered with @blackstone who has purchased the majority of Spanx. With all my heart I love this brand. With all my heart I will continue to love this brand. I will remain a significant shareholder and continue to help the business fulfill its greatest potential, as well as continue to fulfill my greatest passion – elevating women. I’m as excited today for the future of Spanx as I was when I started it 21 years ago. I’ve bootstrapped this for 21 years and I can’t wait to see what we can do for our customers with Blackstone’s full global resources behind us. I’m eternally grateful to the customers, employees (past and present), vendors, retailers, friends and family who stood by me while I took the leap. Let today inspire all the dreamers out there who care the most. Start. Jump. The world needs you. Never underestimate what you can do if you truly care the most. It wasn’t what I knew (zero background in business), it wasn’t who I knew (no one in the industry) it was because I cared the most that gave me the courage to launch the company. At the time, men were making women’s undergarments and I decided to advocate for women through product. I thought somebody needs to speak up who’s actually wearing the product.. might as well be me. I received a sign from the universe 21 years ago to start the company and I received another sign that it was the right time to take in a partner and specifically Blackstone. After meeting with the all-female deal team, I knew they were the right partners to grow our mission and scale our purpose. Now together with Blackstone, we will have even more opportunity to further our mission of making the world a better place… one butt at a time! Stay tuned… ❤️#Entrepreneur #Spanx
