Well-written, Highly informative and Lori's Personality Shines Through Each Page 10 Mar. 2014
By Christine Abraham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Shark Tank investor Lori Greiner has published a fantastic book for turning ideas into profit. As a small business owner, I've read several mommy millionaire books on starting a business. This book by Lori Greiner crushes those books and hits it out of the ballpark! Lori has been called the "Queen of QVC." She has helped launch over 400 products and holds 120 U.S. and international patents. She is passionate about encouraging others towards personal success and leaves no hidden secrets...Lori puts it all on the table for her readers, by including both her failures and her success. Topics in the book include:

*Research Your Market
*How to Get Funding
*The Truth About Patents
*Pitch Perfect
*Manufacturing and Packaging
*Beyond Brick and Mortar
*Marketing That Really Works
*Expand and Diversify

From the time I picked up the book I was unable to put it down. The book is well-written, highly informative and Lori's personality shines through each page. If you are a fan of the Shark Tank television show, you'll like the stories Lori shares about working with the other investors and the prospects presenting their pitches. I highly recommend this book!

"Unicorn" Shares All: Tips, Advice, and Information 23 Feb. 2014
By Becky Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Lori incorporates her story of her first product, an earring organizer, from conception to stores in 4 months, and her evolution into entrepreneur conglomerate and "unicorn" on Shark Tank, with behind the scenes info. As A preacher of DIY, she has become an expert in manufacturing, patents, and design. She also stresses importance of family, fun and compassion.

The book is linear, but explains you will be doing several steps at once. It will require hard work and dedication on your part.

Topics include:
Are you ready? Public speaking a must amongst other listed criteria. Is your idea a hero or zero? How and why with a summary checklist provided. How to make your product, from prototype (design engineers, PMS 365, mock up, 3D printing, plastic manufacturers, injection molding, CAD design...don't know what I'm talking about? It's all in the book:-). Again, at end of chapter a helpful checklist is provided.

A chapter on market research is provided and then she dives into the inevitable, daunting task of funding ( business plans and what you need to know). Without providing her personal Rolodex (dream on people!) she lists where to look for funding with many examples and the pros and cons. Very thorough and enlightening for me. Do you know what a DVRT company is? I didn't either.

Next up. Patents and then Pitching. How tos, what to do...more info with some great success stories. If you are lucky enough to make it this far, Lori continues by sharing manufacturing and packaging secrets. What to consider, overseas options with reputable contact info provided, regulations and laws, quality control, etc.

The later part of the book moves into driving your business ( you are never done) and then beyond brick and mortar, which is mostly about TV options, Internet options, and catalogs. She wraps up the book with marketing options and why she loves social media.

Compared to mommy millionaire books I've read, this one is way more informative with a lot more step by step and practical advice. I learned a lot and a lot about where to find more information. Her examples, tips, and advice are priceless and inspiring. I really like Lori, her voice, the way the book is organized, and how she makes it all seem possible. She seems to genuinely want to help others and I thinks she does that with this book.

I would recommend to any one who has an idea and doesn't know what to do with it. I'm going to give a copy to my niece who is going off to college for inspiration. It's a great book for both male and female entrepreneurs. And for all those Shark Tank dreamers.

Honest, helpful and easy to read 15 Mar. 2014
By monkuboy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm not really a fan of Shark Tank. My wife loves the show and keeps telling me to watch it. I've watched bits and pieces of it, but to tell you the truth the judges, or sharks, don't appeal to me because they are so aggressive and the show is all about money money money. So then why did I read this book, written by one of the sharks? Because someone I know is an "inventor" and I wanted to see if this book would be worth recommending to him. It is.

I am not familiar with Lori Greiner. The bits of the show I've watched, I have seen Mark Cuban and the other two guys talking, along with the older lady and I don't like any of them. I guess I should watch for Ms. Greiner, since she has written what I feel is a very good book. At first I thought this was a quick bit of work to make money by taking advantage of her shark status. Obviously she wants to make money from it, but the reader gets his or her moneys worth; I got the impression she really cares about helping the reader to be successful. When she talks about her experiences, it seems more about helping and not about bragging.

The book is well-organized, with chapters covering all the major aspects of bringing an idea or invention to market. It isn't sugar coated, and it is written in a very personable way that makes it easy to read and understand. Having a business background (but never having tried to market any of my own ideas), my two cents is she provides a sensible, solid foundation for someone who wants to market a product. There's no fluff in the book, it's all practical and wise advice. She makes it clear that just because you have a great idea doesn't mean you're going to get rich - there is a continual emphasis on how much hard work and effort is required, as well as being quick to stay ahead of possible competition.

I think for the person who has what he or she feels is a good idea or invention and has thought about marketing it, this book makes an excellent resource. You will learn a lot from Ms. Greiner's voice of experience.

Go from Zero to Hero 11 Mar. 2014
By Dave Kerpen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I know a lot of entrepreneurs and wantrepreneurs - people with great ideas who don't know how to turn them into real businesses. This books shows you exactly how to do just that - turn a great idea into a real enterprise. Lori, the nice Shark from the hit TV show Shark Tank, guides readers through every part of building a successful business. Two likeable thumbs up for this practical, comprehensive book.

13 five star reviews? 20 Mar. 2014
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
13 five star reviews? I must be missing something here. Did these 13 people read the same book that I did?

I mean the book was an entertaining read, I guess. But I found myself waiting for that big "aha" of something that wasn't common sense to me already. It never came.

I love the show, but I honestly didn't love this book.

What I did like about this book was the following:
1) It was well written as far as flow of information, and...
2) The checklists at the end of each chapter were a nice touch.

But again, well written or not, I found very little useful content in the book and I honestly feel like I wasted my money on the book and my time in reading it.

And I personally don't appreciate what appear to be bogus/hype reviews, just not cool on any level, IF that is what is occurring here. Why? Because they contributed to me wasting my money.
