  • Met her husband at Kincade's, a bar and grill in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood.
  • First invention, an earring organizer, was made for her own convenience, but became wildly popular in Chicago-area J.C. Penney stores.
  • Despite her moniker as "the Queen of QVC," her first product was actually rejected by the network. She took it to QVC's longtime rival, HSN, and sold 2,500 units in the program's first two minutes.
