From Franchise Owner to corporate VP of Operational Support Judy Milner and ABC’s Hit TV Show Shark Tank, Spatty and Spatty Daddy Inventor Cheryl Rigdon are the special guests on the next edition of Deanne DeMarco’s radio show. The program, “Today’s Inspiring Women,” airs noon Pacific on Thursday on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Network.

 

Phoenix, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/22/2014 -- Deanne DeMarco continues her ground-breaking radio series with two high-powered guests: the female VP of Operational Support of the UPS Store and the woman who invented the Spatty and Spatty Daddy as first seen on ABC’s Hit TV show The Shark Tank.

Judy Milner former UPS franchisee owner in Northern Virginia has an incredible story on how she climbed the corporate ladder to the VP of Operational Support and Cheryl Rigdon, a speech pathologist who invented the Spatty and Spatty Daddy and went on the hit TV show The Shark Tank, to pitch her invention hoping to gain support are featured on next Thursday’s episode of Deanne DeMarco’s entertaining, informative and inspiring program, “Today’s Inspiring Women.” The weekly hour-long show airs at 12 noon Pacific on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Radio network.

Today Judy Milner is the VP of Operational Support with The UPS Store. Early in her career she held a number of positions with the company including accounts receivable manager. She left corporate to own and run a UPS Store franchise. After a few years she and her husband became multiple area franchisees and owned multiple UPS Store locations in Northern Virginia. The UPS Store offers in store and online printing, notary, document finishing, mailbox services, packing and shipping, all tailored to fit small business owners. After selling her franchise locations she is now VP of Operational Support with the UPS Store.

“ Deanne DeMarco says that Judy is a very unique guest to have on the show. She has been a successful entrepreneur and a high-ranking corporate executive. We have many listeners who are interested in owning a franchise and have questions on how to select the right franchise and how to run a franchise store.” Deanne continues, “I will ask Judy about the skills an entrepreneur needs to know before buying a franchise and how to own your own store and still have work life balance.”

DeMarco said, “The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that many women are becoming entrepreneurs so I am going to ask Judy on the most important piece of advice she received. Additionally, Judy is unique because she also is a very successful corporate leader. I am interested to find out her thoughts on best practices for women to be an effective leader in their organizations.”

Deanne DeMarco’s second guest, Cheryl Rigdon, works full time as a Speech Language Pathologist. Yet Cheryl has always been a problem solver. When she got annoyed by not being able to access the product on the bottom of her expensive bottles of make-up and lotions, she decided to invent a solution. That solution was the Spatty and then she latter designed the Spatty Daddy for some of those kitchen bottles.

Cheryl presented both products on the hit TV show, The Shark Tank on ABC. The Shark Tank is an investing reality show where entrepreneurs make live pitches to a panel of millionaires and billionaires in hopes of getting funding for their business and a partner/mentor to help them be successful. The panel of investor sharks include: Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Daymond John creator of the FUBU fashion line, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Grainer of QVC-TV, Robert Herjavec, and Kevin O’Leary.

“ I remember seeing Cheryl on the Shark Tank and was disappointed that none of the sharks wanted to help her out,” Deanne DeMarco says. “ I thought it was a great product, because most women can relate to the problems Cheryl solved, I remember I wanted one.” DeMarco Continued, “when I saw the Spatty and Spatty Daddy in Bed Bath and Beyond, I knew I had to have Cheryl on my show. I am very excited to ask her what steps she took to get her invention to market. I think there are other listeners who are inventors and don’t know how to get their products to market and Cheryl is the perfect person to offer advice. I also want to ask her what were the lessons she learned from the Shark Tank. Another question I have for Cheryl is how she manages to run the Spatty/ Spatty Daddy business and be a full time Speech pathologist.”

Deanne DeMarco, who has 20 successful years as a business coach, professional speaker and management trainer , said, “Each week on the show I interview extraordinary and inspiring women who may not yet be household names but are business and entrepreneurial rising stars who have solid, practical advice for my audience. Judy’s personal achievements are truly inspirational and her principles for success can be applied to any business. Cheryl taps into a subject that affects many entrepreneurs and inventors. So if you’re an entrepreneur or want to be an entrepreneur and want to be inspired and get some straight talk advice you can not put off listening to the show.”

Deanne DeMarco herself has used her innovative strategies—drawn from successful experiences as a scientist, college instructor, management trainer, Fortune 500 manager, author and entrepreneur—to help business executives and individuals break through personal and career roadblocks.
