Show Notes

My husband, Lou and I love watching Shark Tank.

That’s the show where entrepreneurs come in and pitch their business and their idea to a panel of mega successful entrepreneurs in the hopes of landing an investment deal with them.

When Lori Greiner – one of the female sharks – looks at investing in a product on the show she often talks about it in terms of whether or not she sees it working on QVC which is one of the home shopping channels.

Well today’s guest got her product on QVC with no help from one of the sharks. She did it herself and she’s here to share how she did it.

Bernadette Giorgi is a leader in fitness and has been a trusted voice in women’s health, beauty, and wellness for more than 25 years.

She’s on a mission to redefine what it means to be fit, healthy, and beautiful.

In addition to holding several advanced pilates and fitness certifications Bernadette has been featured nationally in Pilates Style Magazine, Pilates Digest, and on

She’s made regular appearances on affiliates of ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, and Fox news. She’s been a featured expert on Be Well Philly as well as the national lifestyle shows The List and Better TV.

Bernadette owns Just B Moved a fitness studio in south jersey. She is the inventor of the B-Bounder, a unique fitness product that sold out in her appearances on QVC.

So listen in as Bernadette shares:

  • How she got the idea for the B-bounder
  • The steps she had to take to test it and get it built
  • Actions she took to protect her product
  • Exactly what it took to get the product on QVC
  • Tips for you if you have a product idea
  • And some things she’d do differently now

If you’re a shark tank fan this episode will give you a real understanding for why the sharks make some of their recommendations.

As always listen all the way to the end where I’ll share your cocktail exercise and action step for this episode.
