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 over 120 U.S. and international patents. She is the "warm-blooded" star shark on the hit entrepreneurial business show, Shark Tank 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 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.
Well-known for creating the most popular jewelry and cosmetic organizers of her time, Greiner’s cleverly designed products cover a large range, and she is constantly adding new items. From must-have organizers for the home to kitchen tools, travel bags and clever solutions for everyday problems, Lori’s products are enjoyed by men and women alike. Her inspiration comes from her passion to bring happiness to people by making their everyday lives easier.
Greiner’s accomplishments come from her sharp instincts and strong business sense. She oversees the legal and patent processes, and has driven her business to the success it has achieved. An expert on patenting and a guest speaker for the United States Patent & Trademark Office, she is hands-on in all facets of taking a product from concept to creation and to market within months. She has also helped many budding entrepreneurs turn their ideas into hit products. At the heart of her own success is a combination of talent, hard work and perseverance, as well as sincere, energetic on-air appeal.
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. Her all-American success story is refreshing in today’s challenging economy. Her inventions address the everyday needs of a wide-range of people, and her affordable pricing makes her products accessible, allowing her to spread her enthusiasm for problem-solving to millions.
Lori, in her effort to “pay it forward,” wrote the bestseller, “Invent It, Sell It, Bank It,” named one of the top 10 business books by Amazon.com, and also made Wall Street Journal's top business books of 2014. 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. In addition, Lori is a much sought after speaker inspiring others to achieve their goals and dreams as she has and offers in her book and on stage the recipe to achieve great success. This also adds to Lori’s philosophy of helping others and sharing her experience to benefit others-all in an entertaining way.
