“Men have had a tough time this year in the media— from the ‘Mancession’ to the belief that the rise of women somehow means the decline of men. I hope to change that conversation in 2012 and help tell stories of guys doing great things in a way that inspires the next generation of great men.”

“We believe we will be in over 250 locations worldwide, open a couple more corporate stores in the U.S. as well as extend the cooperation with Macy’s. South America is our last continent that we are going to put our step on, following good results in Europe and all over the world.”

“I resolve to…laugh heartily at least once a day. Laughing is healthy and infectious, even when it’s on the basis of my jokes that are too British and not funny.”

“I need to do something fun to spice up my workout routine in 2012. That’s why I’ve decided to make my New Year’s resolution to go boxing four to five times per week. Not only is it a great workout, it also helps to wipe away any stress from the workday and makes me feel like I can take on the world!”

“To laugh more—especially at myself, and get back to doing an old hobby—stand-up comedy.”

“My New Year’s resolution is to take the time for ‘the little things’ that mean so much. Whether it is calling someone or sending a text to let them know you’re thinking of them, taking a moment to extend a gesture of kindness…Whatever it is that will make my friends and family know that they are truly loved and treasured.”

“My New Year’s resolution is to continue to live the ‘Yes To’ way of life by exploring the exotic world. 2012 will include Burning Man, Gorillas in Africa and learning how to kite surf…. All of this while spending even more time with my young family, friends and the most positive beauty brand on earth.”
