Renowned for being able to instantly tell whether a product is a “hero or a zero,” LORI GREINER knew the Simply Fit Board would be a top seller the moment their team demoed the product on Shark Tank. Meeting each of Lori’s tried and tested check points—it had the right price point, a universal appeal, and was very visual—Lori offered the Simply Fit Board partners $125,000 for a 20% stake and quickly developed a strategy to make it the hottest product on the market. Her strategy delivered. “In the first 24 hours they sold 34,000 units; in 48 hours they’d racked up $1.7 million in sales.” Thanks to Lori’s unparalleled experience and marketing genius, the Simply Fit Board went from $575,000 to $9 million in sales in just seven months. As Lori said:  “This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of product. We just launched in every Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond and Kmart store, and soon we’ll be all over Europe, Japan and Australia. It’s just an amazing Cinderella story.”
