Shelly Ehler, mother of two, felt it was always a hassle when it came to having her children change out of wet bathing suits into dry clothes, so she came up with the Showno. It's a towel that's designed like a poncho and makes it easy for children to change after they get out of the pool or water.
Ehler went on "Shark Tank" in 2012 and presented the ShowNo towel. On the episode, she accepted an offer with Lori Greiner for $50,000 in exchange for a 25 percent stake.
At the time of her "Shark Tank" appearance, Ehler was making each towel by hand and she had $15,000 in sales. Her appearance on "Shark Tank" led to a huge interest. In an email to CNBC, she explained that she sold 200 towels the night the episode aired, and within 1½ years, the ShowNo towel appeared on a "Good Morning America's Steals and Deals" segment, where she sold 4,000 towels. Recently, Ehler signed a licensing deal with the largest towel manufacture.
What else has Ehler been up to and what advice does she have for others who are going on "Shark Tank?" Check out the Q&A below.
