I was in total shock. I work so close [to home] that I figured I'd return to work and the baby nurse would bring the baby to me, and I'd run home periodically, and I'd make it work. But every two hours? That's a whole other level. I'll have to make a nursery at the office.
In both business and personal life, I've always found that travel inspires me more than anything else I do.
I make money because I have to pay for everything apart from my school fees.
My mother even makes me pay my own telephone bill.
Real estate is my life. It is my day job, if you will. But it consumes my nights and weekends, too.
Accessories are crucial. A great bag and a piece of statement jewelry are the fastest way to elevate an otherwise understated look.
I am a very proud daughter. Obviously to be able to see this transpiring, to watch him achieve so much as a politician - and we're certainly not a family of politicians, and politics is certainly not our family business - it's been amazing.
I'm so grateful to my parents for my upbringing and for all of the opportunities that I was provided with, but I also learned at a young age that success is not given, it is earned and that has always been something that motivates me.

We also have been creating solution-oriented products for that same person that will help her transition in life through her many roles, whether they may be mother, girlfriend, professional, and really everything in between.
We're in a very unique time where noise equals, in a lot of people's perception, advocacy. And I fundamentally disagree with that.
For me professionally as well I've built an incredible business that I'm very proud of that is my own brand and that is both creating incredible content to empower and inspire this next generation of working women through a digital platform, mainly through my website, ivankatrump.com, our email newsletters, and our social-media platforms.
Politicians talk about wage equality, but my father has made it a practice at his company throughout his entire career. He will fight for equal pay for equal work, and I will fight for this too right alongside of him.
I try not to be too hard on myself. My husband reminds me that life is a marathon, not a sprint.
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.
It's so important for jewelry has to be versatile.
The statement piece is no longer just that. One day it's a statement and the next it's merely an accent to a great pair of shoes or a stunning handbag. Adaptability is key.

If people think they can elicit from me whatever terms they want, they are mistaken.
New media is ... an amazing form of direct marketing in that you really get a sense of who your customer is, and you also get to know those people who may not be your customers yet but are aspirational and are hoping to be.

Well, my mom was an Olympian, so we have some good genes on that front.
Attention to detail is crucial in my roles as a real estate developer and principal of a lifestyle brand. Fine jewelry is especially intricate and requires a very well trained eye.
It's important to be honest with and respectful of each other and deal with issues as they arrive, as opposed to letting them simmer.
I don't plan to take a formal, cold approach with my children, but I expect a lot. I don't want my children to view me as their best friend. I want to be their mom.
You realize in life, not that many things matter that much, but your choice of a spouse is everything.
So it's exciting for me to be able to be with him [my father, Donald trump] for major moments and stand by his side, and I'm very proud of him as a daughter and as somebody who's worked beside him for the past decade at The Trump Organization.
