Last October, I auditioned to be on Wisconsin's version of "Shark Tank." I gave it my all, because I believe in the freedom Pursesuitz Pocketwear offers women. I perfected my story about why I started this business, and I advanced to appear on the television show. The day my episode was taped, I felt surprisingly calm and ready to share my vision with the judges. I told myself to "have fun," though I knew the cameras were rolling and I was literally being judged. But as a lawyer who has argued in front of wicked smart judges, I had been in this situation before. I had rehearsed my pitch to perfection, and I was ready. I had no idea what the outcome would be, or even who the judges would be or the exact prizes available. I just did it, like Nike advises. It was an incredible experience, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to showcase my Pocketwear Tank Tops through this medium. Needless to say, when the judges announced my prize, I was overcome with emotion, a mix of surprise and happiness. It's an experience I will cherish always. Thank you to Project PitchIt for making this stage available for Wisconsin entrepreneurs, and to Milwaukee Business News for featuring my win in your publication.
