Big news for EN member, Irene Truskalo. Her As Seen On TV (ASOTV) submission has been selected and will move forward for on-air testing! Please join us in congratulating (and cheering on) Irene as her idea makes this big step in commercialization! Learn more about Irene and how she came up with her great, new ASOTV idea below!
“I grew up in the suburbs of Washington Crossing, New Jersey. New York City is now my home. I began inventing when I had an idea for a new product that I wanted to use myself, that solved a problem for me in my own life. I became an Edison Nation member when I created that new product and needed help in trying to launch it. After becoming a member of Edison Nation, I continue to submit ideas that occur to me. My ideas so far have all been products that I want to use myself that I think others would also like.
My ASOTV idea came about because I decided I wanted more versatility in my personal hairstyling. As an active mom I found myself wearing ponytails constantly, and I wanted a dressier look and more variety. The idea really came to me because of my own desire to expand my hairstyle options, and the tool I needed did not exist.
I have enjoyed the creative process of inventing and being a member of Edison Nation, and I am excited and grateful for this amazing opportunity. On a personal note, I love spending my time keeping up with my son in NYC. In my spare time, I enjoy writing poetry and songs.” – Irene Truskalo
We look forward to seeing where we can take Irene’s great idea from here! Congratulations, Irene!
