I'm Kelli Ivie
I am an inventor like you and I made products to make my life easier. However, I have done the hard work for you. I had to roll the rock up the hill and figure out myself how to be a successful inventor. Going through the trenches, no one would help me. Other entrepreneurs and inventors would hold their golden lists to their chests and not share. But for me, as people asked how I did it, I began helping. I offered advice, contacts, resources. I found that what gave me the greatest joy and where I found my passion was not in manufacturing, but in helping others realize their dreams. As a product and launch expert for over 20 years, I have helped hundreds of companies get into the retail channels they desired including Target, Nordstorms, Crate & Barrel, Best Buy, Walmart, Fred Meyer, and thousands of gift shop and specialty stores around the world. Many clients have been seen on SharkTank with successful outcomes.
"Kelli is one of the most organized and proactive business people that we have ever met. Her marketing skills and knowledge of start-up businesses are exceptional. She has an extensive list of contacts and is able to connect you to a variety of people (ie: lawyers, graphic designers, sales, social media, manufacturing, etc). Her ability to take our brand from an online business with Amazon and other online platforms into retail is just outstanding. Kelli is so well-connected and so well-liked that introducing our brand to large accounts and specialty stores globally seemed effortless for her. The relationships she has and the ability to bypass all hurdles to open discussions is the key factor in getting our products seen and considered by buyers and successfully into retail.

"Kelli provides invaluable guidance on launching a new company. With over a decade of experience, she gone
has both strategic and technical knowledge in areas including working with a manufacturer, export
logistics, brand identity, public relations and creating a realistic budget. She is a natural negotiator and
knows how to get a good deal. Her list of contacts is extensive. I have no doubt that she has saved me
time and money. She also has tireless energy and support."

always going above and beyond any contractual obligations, and supportive of our brand in so many ways. Kelli and

extensive network of contacts (and tenacity at following up on leads), have helped our brand partner with a number of
prominent sales representatives"

amount of money on legal work and design by working through her channels. She has exceeded my
expectations by treating the distribution of my product as if it were her own. I would recommend K. Ivie
