Lori Greiner started with one idea and turned it into a multi-million dollar international brand.
She is now regarded as one of the most prolific inventors of retail products, having created over 600 products, and holds 120 U.S. and international patents. She is a star Shark on the 4 time Emmy winning show, Shark Tank. Shark Tank is a hit entrepreneurial business show, on ABC, where she invests in companies and helps turn dreams into a reality. Lori also has had her own show on QVC-TV, for the past 16 years called “Clever & Unique Creations by Lori Greiner.” Lori says she can tell instantly if a product is a “hero or a zero”, and this is clearly shown through her many thriving investments and a 90% success rate on new items launched. Several of her investments are the highest success stories on Shark Tank to date.
A great believer that, if you are lucky enough to be successful, you have a responsibility to give back, Greiner’s most gratifying moments come when she is able to help budding entrepreneurs achieve the same success she feels lucky enough to have enjoyed. She also believes that what matters most in life is who a person is and what is in their soul. She and her company annually donate a substantial amount of their profits to a variety of charities.
Lori, in her effort to “pay it forward,” wrote her first book, Invent It, Sell It, Bank It (Random House, 2014), which is a National Best Seller, was named one of the top 10 business books by Amazon, and also made Wall Street Journal's top business books of 2014. The book is a hands-on, nuts and bolt on how to turn an idea into a million dollar reality. Lori takes you step-by-step all along the way. Another part of the book’s tremendous popularity are the personal stories Lori shares and exclusive, behind the scenes about her journey.
