    Savor Success Story: "How I got on Shark Tank"

    February 28, 2013

    "How I got on Shark Tank:" In May 2012, Romy Taormina (co-founder of Psi Bands + Savor Premium Member since its inception four years ago) was reading her Savor daily digest, just like she did every day. She noticed a post about pitching a Shark Tank producer whose email was included. No online application or casting call was necessary.

    Romy quickly jumped on the opportunity and emailed the producer with her pitch. Within two days, they contacted her with a request for a phone call. And then, within hours, Romy and the producer had their first conversation. The result? Romy was accepted to move ahead in the next round of casting on the spot!

    After multiple qualifying rounds of interviews, Romy made it on to the show. She taped an episode of Shark Tank in September 2012, and the episode will air tomorrow, Friday March 1st on ABC at 9PM PST/EST.

    So what was Romy's biggest lesson learned out of this whole adventure? "Don’t let fear or doubt get the best of you. Stay true to yourself and your business. The only way to score is to take a shot!" 

    Tune in tomorrow night, Friday, March 1, at 9PM EST to watch what happens! And please support your fellow Savor Sister through her Facebook and/or Twitter pages with some shout-outs as she gears up for the airing of the show. 

    If you'd like an opportunity to chat with Romy in person, you can meet her at Women Entrepreneurs Rock The World on May 8-9, 2013 in NYC! Just one more reason to not miss it ;)
