Lori Greiner net worth: Lori Greiner is an inventor, investor, entrepreneur, and Shark on ABC’s Shark Tank. Her net worth is estimated at $73 million dollars.
Greiner attended Loyola University Chicago where she studied television, film, and journalism, and worked part-time for the Chicago Tribune. She also wrote plays and sold jewelry on the side.
Her first real entrepreneurial endeavor was making a little box to organize earrings. Using investor money, Lori made a prototype and pitched it to J.C. Penney just before Christmas. A year and a half later, Greiner was officially a millionaire.
Lori’s success led to a lucrative TV career too. She’s been selling the sh*t out of products on QVC for the past 16 years, plus investing and partnering with contestants on Shark Tank for five years and counting.
In total, Greiner’s created more than 600 products and holds 120 U.S. and international patents. She’s got a self-proclaimed 90% success rate on product launches and can tell, instantly, if a new product will be a “zero or a hero.”
Her Shark Tank deals with products like Squatty Potty, Paint Brush Cover, Readerest, Hold Your Haunches, FiberFix, Drop Stop, Simply Fit Board, and Screenmend are some of the highest earning in the show’s history.
In 2014, Greiner wrote Invent it, Sell it, Bank it!, which went on to become a bestseller.
If Lori Greiner’s growing fortune teaches you anything, let it be this: find what you do best and do it over and over and over and over. (And over.) Prolific – that’s the word for wealth, and Lori and her fellow Sharks demonstrate that season after season on their hit show.
Now wait’ll you see how much Mark Cuban is worth.
