Talia Goldfarb is the inventor of Myself Belts, a line of kids belts designed so any child (from 2 to 12) can fasten a belt with one hand. As Goldfard says, there’s nothing like hearing a child proclaim that he or she did something “all by myself.” She pitched her business on Shark Tank in 2014, and asked for a $60,000 investment in exchange for 10 percent equity in Myself Belts. She accepted retail guru Daymond John’s offer of $75,000 in exchange for 25 percent equity.
Since Shark Tank, the Myself Belts product line has expanded to include belts for teenagers and adults. John reportedly helped Myself Belts get a licensing deal with a major clothing accessories business and he occasionally promotes the brand via social media (see below), especially around Back to School time.
