The Business Model is a unique online publication committed to providing models with the most up-to-date, useful information available about their ever-changing industry. Launched in June 2013, TBM delivers dependable information on economics, health, travel, and business to models all over the world.

We aim to emphasize the labour dimension to modelling issues and current events. While we support diversity efforts within the industry, expanding a definition of beauty is not a panacea. 

As such, we do not seek to promote or decry modelling as a profession, but rather to support models throughout what can be very complicated experiences. We contend that models, like all workers, deserve to be safe and have their rights upheld in their workplace. 

Please note that we are not a modelling agency.
