Skinny Shirt's on Shark Tank
Skinny Shirt Shapewear - Episode 611 - 1/9/2015
|Skinny Shirt instantly shapes your curves|
According to the Skinny Shirt Blog, the business was first launched October 29, 2011. Kalimian may have written only one post, but it's a good one and well worth reading this inspirational success story. The short version is Julie credits the invention of the Skinny Shirt Business to her four children, all born within 4 1/2 years time. You'd think to raise four babies is a full-time job all by itself, but this new stay-at-home Mom had a secret weapon deep engrained in her work ethics, She didn't sleep.
After 15 successful years as a publisher for CNET, working throughout the night was nothing new. Precisely how Julie came up with the Skinny Shirt design I won't give it away, you'll have to visit her blog to find out. But I will say it's an important lesson for all Entrepreneur's seeking to invent a new product. Bottom line, keep your mind wide open when you decide you WILL create a brand new product you know is inside you.
According to the Skinny Shirt Press page, this product received an incredible amount of publicity in a very short amount of time. The entire page is filled with positive reviews for the Skinny Shirt's, but they're all within six months with no current updates. Could too much publicity have had an adverse effect on this brand new product's launching? It's easy to see if Julie didn't already have a Shark Tank type investor with manufacturing contacts; there might not be enough hours in a day to accomplish all her tasks.
The good news is the Skinny Shirt's has evolved into a full-fledged Brand with dozens of different styles already available online. Clearly this business has grown in the past few years even without any current updates to the website. Who knows, maybe a new blog post will be announcing Skinny Shirts made a deal on the Shark Tank Show. Now that would be great news for the Entrepreneur who never sleeps!
