07 Apr April 7, 2020 – Bra Inventor Lisa Lindahl and Scholarship Strategist Jean O’Toole
We could not keep up with demand and thank God for the Small Business Administration! They gave us a plan to fill out, and I laughed and called it financial fairy tales.
Lisa Z. Lindahl invented the first-ever sports bra, the “Jogbra”, in 1977 as a game-changer, evolutionizing athletic participation for women and girls and building a million-dollar business around it. She is an accomplished public speaker, writer, problem sighter and solver with knack for niche marketing and special focus on vision and planning, specializing in women-related issues. Along with being inducted to the National Inventors Hall of Fame and Smithsonian’s Innovate Lives series this spring in March, Lisa has detailed her life in her new book, Unleash the Girls, telling her deeply personal and improbable story of a young artist with a disability who solved a vexing problem and ended up leveling the playing field for girls and women across the globe.
