How a Working Mom Became a Successful Entrepreneur

Shelly Ehler, the owner/creator of Show No towels, is a former teacher from Ladera Ranch.  Married to Brian with two sons, Mark and Clark, Shelly started off sewing the towels at home, then added an employee, and eventually hired a sewing contractor in downtown Los Angeles. She currently has contracts selling the towels at Legoland and Six Flags Magic Mountain’s water parks. Her product has also been showcased in various TV shows including NBC’s Today Show.

Shelly appeared on the ABC show, Shark Tank, where Lori Greiner, one of the “Sharks” actually wrote her a check on the spot. It was a start of a business partnership!

Today, Show No towels are also available in Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, as well as a variety of retail stores in Texas, California, and soon in other areas.  She’s here with us today to share her experience and advice starting her own business as a working mom.
