Peter Nygard’s Finnish sisu spirit

We’ve talked a lot about fashion mogul Peter Nygard’s Finnish sisu spirit, and how it makes him persevere no matter the circumstances or difficulties, just like the Finnish soldiers who persevered against the odds and won several battles against Russian soldiers despite being vastly outnumbered; today, as a result, the Finns can say that they have never been subject to Soviet rule.

So what does it take to persevere against impossible odds? What made them able to fight to the end no matter what? What makes Peter Nygard, like his Finnish compatriots able to always persevere?

It begins with the right mindset, which means making a mental shift.

That shift involves making a decision, a determination that no matter what, you are going to make it work. But first, give yourself a break.

Know that having business challenges does not mean you are not capable of making it work. Even if you have made mistakes in your business, it doesn’t have to stand in the way of your success. Learn from it and move on.

Fashion mogul Peter Nygard has many sides

“Will the real Peter Nygard please stand up.” There are many sides to fashion mogul Peter Nygard as Marina Sturdza has shared in her 1987 article “Who is the real Nygard?”

No one ever built a $200-million clothing empire on mere flamboyance, hedonism, and a knack for self-promotion, and nobody ever did it alone. And Nygard’s ability to retain top-level executives … is testimony to the caliber of Nygard’s operation and the opportunities he offers. And the company’s impressive growth record—Nygard International has never failed to turn a consistently high profit, and sales have doubled every five years—indicates that Nygard is clearly paying attention to business.

Nygard’s route to fashion supremacy may not have been as glamorous as that of his higher-end designer market peers, but in North America, the middle-market is where the numbers are and where the profit lies. What’s more, Nygard’s record has greatly endeared him to his retailers, and will doubtless earn him a privileged reception for his next venture, a signature collection pitted directly against Canada’s “better” manufacturers.

Nygard further protects his retailers’ interests (and incidentally, his own) by providing thorough product information and staff indoctrination, plus enviable display and co-op advertising support. So effective are his tactics that Nygard’s Canadian retail sales amount to $4 per capita, for every man, woman and child in this country—all the more impressive when you consider the company’s low price points—$25 to $150, and the sheer number of units represented. In total, Nygard produces 10 to 12 million garments a year in his Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Los Angeles, Taiwan, Korea, Hong Kong and Chinese factories.
