NATIONAL BESTSELLER

From one of the stars of ABC's Shark Tank and QVC's Clever & Unique Creations by Lori Greiner comes a hands-on, nuts-and-bolts guide to getting a new product or company off the ground and making it a success.
 
Turn your idea into a reality.
Become your own boss.
Make your first million.
Achieve financial freedom.
Lori Greiner shows you how.
 
Lori Greiner is one of America's most successful, prolific, and sought-after entrepreneurs. But before she created her first hit product, all she had was a great idea, a tireless work ethic, and no clue how to get it to market. So Lori taught herself everything she needed to know about bringing an invention from concept to creation to consumers in months. She learned the ins and outs of business, manufacturing, investors, patents, marketing, and more. Now, five hundred million dollars in retail sales later, in an honest and straightforward fashion, Lori reveals the path she took to her wealth of experience and hard-won wisdom so that you, too, can achieve financial freedom and see your invention become reality.
 
Invent It, Sell It, Bank It! is a hands-on, nuts-and-bolts guide to getting a new product or company off the ground and making it profitable. Sharing her own secret formula and personal stories along the way, she provides vital information and advice on topics that can often intimidate, frustrate, and stump aspiring entrepreneurs.
 
Offering behind-the-scenes insights into her experiences on ABC's Shark Tank and QVC-TV's Clever & Unique Creations by Lori Greiner, as well as valuable lessons learned from the mistakes and triumphs of her early career, Lori proves that, with hard work and the right idea, anyone can turn themselves into the next overnight success.
 
So a note to all the weekend inventors, armchair CEOs, and get-rich-quick dreamers: No more excuses! With Lori Greiner as your personal mentor, the only thing left to do is make your product, get out there, and sell it!
 
Inside, Lori covers such topic as . . .
• Market research: Is your idea a hero or a zero? Don't be so fixated on the end result that you forget to make something that people actually want to buy. 
• Product design: I have an idea, now what's next? From concept to prototype to final product: How do I make it and where do I start?
• Funding: Although loans, investments, and crowd-sourcing are great ways to access cash, first tap into your own resources as wisely as possible.
• Manufacturing: Seeing your final product roll off the assembly line is a magical moment, but there are things to watch out for so you get there in a cost-effective way.
• Protecting your idea: To patent or not to patent, and other things you can do to safeguard your idea.
• The secrets to selling successfully: You got the product made, now learn how to get people to buy it!

1 Are You Ready? “Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.” —­Gail Devers, three-­time Olympic champion in track and field When we think about the world’s greatest inventors, we tend to remember a select few whose innovations quite literally changed the world. Thomas Edison for the phonograph and the first incandescent lightbulb that was safe and practical enough for home use; Nikola Tesla or Guglielmo Marconi, depending whom you ask, for the radio; George Washington Carver, for peanut butter; Wilbur and Orville Wright, for the airplane. And yet, every day we take advantage of products and devices created by millions of inventors who are not and may never be household names, but who have made our world a better place. They are young, like Chester Greenwood, who invented the earmuff when he was only fifteen, and they are old, like Charles Greeley Abbot, who invented the first solar cooker and was 101 when he received his last patent. They are moms—­notorious for creating new time and labor-saving devices, including the disposable diaper—­and dads, like Frank Epperson, inventor of the Popsicle (originally called the Eppsicle). They are tinkerers who constantly take things apart to see how they work, only to immediately identify how they could build them better; troubleshooters who get energized when hunting for creative solutions to life’s everyday dilemmas; and DIYers whose impatience with inefficiency or d
