Event description

Description

Krista Barnett is the President and CEO of BootBand, the company that produces and sells the only removable boot expander in the world. Krista became an entrepreneur in 2006 when she set out to create a work and life balance, pursue her entrepreneurial passions and have a flexible schedule to enjoy her family. In 2007, Krista was operating a business to help families purchase affordable clothes and gear when she was inspired to invent the BootBand. She sold this business and embarked on a three-year journey to develop this revolutionary product. Since launching in 2010, Krista has single-handedly gotten press in O, The Oprah Magazine, Woman's Day, The Doctor's Show, The Wall Street Journal, and most recently she appeared on The Today Show.

Krista creates products that fill a market need and solves problems and in doing so, she has been awarded patents and trademarks in the United States and international patents in Canada and Europe. Krista has established vendor relationships with Amazon and QVC to distribute her products to the millions of women who need them. Krista is excited to share what she has learned along the way to help other women entrepreneurs establish their definitions of success and step out boldly to achieve their goals.
