Jen and Carrie, the WAHMs (Work At Home Moms) behind The Naked Nursing Tank, recently had the opportunity to go on live television on a famous Canadian morning show, Marilyn Denis. This was such an exciting opportunity for them that they wanted to share it with The Leaky Boob community and celebrate with a giveaway!
TLB: So set the stage for us a bit. What show were you on (help us Americans out here), and why were you there?
Jen & Carrie: We were featured on The Marilyn Denis Show, a talk show that is based in Toronto and is aired across Canada, nationwide. It was a Mompreneurs show featuring a panel of experts, including Arlene Dickinson, who is famous for her regular part on The Dragon’s Den -the Canadian version of The Shark Tank.
TLB: I have never been on a morning show (in front of a national audience!) before; what was that like?
Jen & Carrie: It was AMAZING!!! We were so fortunate to have been able to have had this opportunity! It was such a knowledgeable group of people to ask our questions to about how to expand our business globally with a sustainable platform. There was also opportunity to follow up “off-air” which gave us more time to pick their brains and connect on a personal level, learning more about future next steps. Let us just say that it was also pretty amazing to have our hair and makeup done (that is a rarity amongst most working mothers) 😉
TLB: Thank you for the shout out in the video, by the way! : ) What did you take away from this experience? Was it helpful?
Jen & Carrie: No Problem, we love you guys, and we have nothing but GREAT things to say about a forum such as yours! The experience was definitely helpful. We have had follow up emails and phone conversations with the women that were on the show with us and we have been given suggestions on how to keep moving forward and reach the global market of breastfeeding mamas. In addition, with the enormous amount of emails and positive feedback, we’ve realized that the Naked Tank needs to be in the hands of EVERY mother -as it really is changing the experience of nursing in public and feeling more comfortable while doing so.
TLB: Did you develop any new plans for the future of The Naked Nursing Tank?
Jen & Carrie: Yes, absolutely! We have started production of Plus sized tanks, which should be ready to go by the end of the summer, and we also have another little genius idea up our sleeve as well…stay tuned for the launch of that complementary patented product!! 🙂
TLB: Do you have any plans to return to live TV any time soon?
Jen & Carrie: There is always something in the works…and listen, if we could get our hair and makeup done again, we would do it every day!! LOL!! Just say the word 🙂
