Greiner began her career by creating a plastic earring organizer with sliding rods that could neatly store 100 pairs of earrings. She created a prototype of the product which was picked up by J.C. Penney before the holiday season. Greiner took out a $300,000 loan and paid it back in eighteen months. She claimed that “she never set out to be a serial inventor” but her success on the Home Shopping Network started her on that path. The following year she transitioned to QVC and in 2000 she created an arsenal of new products. In 2012, Greiner joined the TV series Shark Tank. Two years later her investment in Scrub Daddy, a company that produces a texture changing household sponge was noted as a huge success. In 2014 she had sold more than 2 million on QVC.
