Look Inside., Just kidding.. I just know about her from Shark Tank reality tv.
She has also been profiled in Financial Times, Success, and Entrepreneur. In this interview, she talks about starting a business, how entrepreneurs can best prepare for the Shark Tank, where her creativity comes from, her way of doing marketing research. Dan Schawbel: If you knew what you knew now about starting and growing a business, would you have done it in the first place? It's been great and I love it! I have the true entrepreneurial spirit and I love what I do. Why do you think that happens?
Like so many of you, I love the ABC hit television show. Every Friday night, my wife and I gather on the couch with our year-old daughter to watch entrepreneurs pitch the "sharks" to invest in their burgeoning businesses.

If you're a fellow entrepreneur, Shark Tank provides the kind of education and entertainment that simply can't be found easily, well, anywhere else. Regarded as one of the most prolific inventors of retail products, having created more than products, Greiner holds U. Several of her investments are the best success stories on Shark Tank to date. If you can answer these three questions right away with a resounding "YES," then your idea may be a hero.
