Good Day Sacramento...Here We Come!

The window to submit your product for our Good Day Sacramento segment has come and gone, and the selections have been made.  Emails have been sent to the lucky ladies with instructions going forward.  

We would like to thank all of you who submitted your amazing products.  It was really tough narrowing our selections down to ten.  We honestly wish we could take all of you.  The great thing about our network is that these opportunities are coming left and right.  

Since all submissions were high quality, amazing products, our selection was more about product flow, representation of the vast types of inventions in our network, and whether the inventor has already had a lot of media attention in the past.  If a product was newer to the market and hadn't had an opportunity like this in their past we were more likely to pick them if they also meet our high quality standards.  That doesn't mean that we won't pick a product that has had media attention for future media opportunities for our network, so keep your eyes open when those come and resubmit.

We would like the segment to be the unveiling of the products we picked.  Tune into Good Day Sacramento on June 3rd in the AM.  This is a 4 to 5 hour show and we have two segments, so we're not sure exactly what time we'll be on.   

We hope to see all who applied and weren't selected to please apply for future opportunities!

Get your product showcased on Good Day Sacramento!

Once again, The Women Inventorz Network has a very exciting media opportunity! Dhana Cohen and Melinda Knight will be featuring their “W.I.N. Certified”/top product picks on Good Day Sacramento in the beginning part of June. Click here to learn more about this highly regarded show and their amazing team.
Julissa Ortiz will be interviewing W.I.N.

Obviously, being featured on a very popular talk show is wonderful, but what makes this even more special is that we have more time in our segment to really tell the story about each product.  The Good Day Sacramento program has a very fun and uplifting environment that’s a perfect fit for our network.  The massive viewership is exactly our target demographic who would purchase the products Dhana and Melinda will be promoting.  Their Facebook following alone is well over 72,000, which is more than most talk shows. This doesn't include our own network’s massive online reach! 

Media Highlights

The Good Day Sacramento team would really like us to showcase a wide array of products, so the theme is fun, unique and innovative.  Because of this it really opens things up for our network!  They understand the talents of our ladies, and don’t want to pigeon hole the segment’s creativity!

Deadline to be considered for this opportunity is
Wednesday, May 22nd.  

To apply simply leave a comment below with a link to more information.  We will contact you if your product appears to be a fit with more details.  Please no emails unless you have a question specifically about the program.  Even though we have a much longer segment, we still have a limit to the number
of products. 

The cost if your product is selected for this amazing opportunity is $350. 
Only submit your product if you’re willing to pay
this minimal fee.

The lucky inventors who are selected for this segment
will receive:

Having their product featured on a well-regarded talk show with a large viewership
Media clip that their able to use for their own marketing
Aggressive promotion online through the Women Inventorz Network
       -Showcasing segment on our homepage reaching over 200,000 pageviews
        per month

       -Social media promotion to well over 500,000 fans and followers through Twitter        
         and Facebook through our popular tweet campaigns.

        -Permanent blog posting featuring each product that was showcased on the
         segment and where to purchase it.  This will bring SEO to your websites long
         after the segment has taken place.  This is worth the fee alone!!!

We were recently featured on Good Day Chicago, which ended up being syndicated in 9 major stations across the Nation!!!  The media loves our network and the concept of the latest women invented products coming to market!

What does it mean to be W.I.N. Certified?
Even though our network is an equal opportunity platform to promote your product, the products Dhana and Melinda showcase have received their stamp of approval.  They have a very detailed qualifications process that means that they stand behind the inventor and their invention and recommend viewers purchase their product. 

We do need to see the product in person, so it’s possible your product may not receive the “W.I.N. Certification” due to quality.  If this is the case, we will discretely inform you and reimburse the fee.  

If your product isn't selected for this segment doesn't necessarily mean we wouldn't use it for future media opportunities, so please don’t be disappointed.  Even though the theme is broad, we will want the products to flow well from product to product.

Warren Buffet Says Women are the Key to American Prosperity, Women Inventorz Network believes it too!

Fortune Magazine article 2013

THO20 warren buffett katharine graham

Warren Buffett with the late Katharine Graham of the Washington Post at his 50th-birthday party in 1980

In an exclusive essay the Berkshire Hathaway (BRKAFortune 500)chairman and CEO explains why women are key to America's prosperity.

In the flood of words written recently about women and work, one related and hugely significant point seems to me to have been neglected. It has to do with America's future, about which -- here's a familiar opinion from me -- I'm an unqualified optimist. Now entertain another opinion of mine: Women are a major reason we will do so well.Start with the fact that our country's progress since 1776 has been mind-blowing, like nothing the world has ever seen. Our secret sauce has been a political and economic system that unleashes human potential to an extraordinary degree. As a result Americans today enjoy an abundance of goods and services that no one could have dreamed of just a few centuries ago.
But that's not the half of it -- or, rather, it's just about the half of it. America has forged this success while utilizing, in large part, only half of the country's talent. For most of our history, women -- whatever their abilities -- have been relegated to the sidelines. Only in recent years have we begun to correct that problem.
Despite the inspiring "all men are created equal" assertion in the Declaration of Independence, male supremacy quickly became enshrined in the Constitution. In Article II, dealing with the presidency, the 39 delegates who signed the document -- all men, naturally -- repeatedly used male pronouns. In poker, they call that a "tell."
Finally, 133 years later, in 1920, the U.S. softened its discrimination against women via the 19th Amendment, which gave them the right to vote. But that law scarcely budged attitudes and behaviors. In its wake, 33 men rose to the Supreme Court before Sandra Day O'Connor made the grade -- 61 years after the amendment was ratified. For those of you who like numbers, the odds against that procession of males occurring by chance are more than 8 billion to one.
When people questioned the absence of female appointees, the standard reply over those 61 years was simply "no qualified candidates." The electorate took a similar stance. When my dad was elected to Congress in 1942, only eight of his 434 colleagues were women. One lonely woman, Maine's Margaret Chase Smith, sat in the Senate.
Resistance among the powerful is natural when change clashes with their self-interest. Business, politics, and, yes, religions provide many examples of such defensive behavior. After all, who wants to double the number of competitors for top positions?
But an even greater enemy of change may well be the ingrained attitudes of those who simply can't imagine a world different from the one they've lived in. What happened in my own family provides an example. I have two sisters. The three of us were regarded, by our parents and teachers alike, as having roughly equal intelligence -- and IQ tests in fact confirmed our equality. For a long time, to boot, my sisters had far greater "social" IQ than I. (No, we weren't tested for that -- but, believe me, the evidence was overwhelming.)
The moment I emerged from my mother's womb, however, my possibilities dwarfed those of my siblings, for I was a boy! And my brainy, personable, and good-looking siblings were not. My parents would love us equally, and our teachers would give us similar grades. But at every turn my sisters would be told -- more through signals than words -- that success for them would be "marrying well." I was meanwhile hearing that the world's opportunities were there for me to seize.
So my floor became my sisters' ceiling -- and nobody thought much about ripping up that pattern until a few decades ago. Now, thank heavens, the structural barriers for women are falling.
Still an obstacle remains: Too many women continue to impose limitations on themselves, talking themselves out of achieving their potential. Here, too, I have had some firsthand experience.
Among the scores of brilliant and interesting women I've known is the late Katharine Graham, long the controlling shareholder and CEO of the Washington Post Co. (WPO)Kay knew she was intelligent. But she had been brainwashed -- I don't like that word, but it's appropriate -- by her mother, husband, and who knows who else to believe that men were superior, particularly at business.
When her husband died, it was in the self-interest of some of the men around Kay to convince her that her feelings of inadequacy were justified. The pressures they put on her were torturing. Fortunately, Kay, in addition to being smart, had an inner strength. Calling on it, she managed to ignore the baritone voices urging her to turn over her heritage to them.
I met Kay in 1973 and quickly saw that she was a person of unusual ability and character. But the gender-related self-doubt was certainly there too. Her brain knew better, but she could never quite still the voice inside her that said, "Men know more about running a business than you ever will."
I told Kay that she had to discard the fun-house mirror that others had set before her and instead view herself in a mirror that reflected reality. "Then," I said, "you will see a woman who is a match for anyone, male or female."
I wish I could claim I was successful in that campaign. Proof was certainly on my side: Washington Post stock went up more than 4,000% -- that's 40 for 1 -- during Kay's 18 years as boss. After retiring, she won a Pulitzer Prize for her superb autobiography. But her self-doubt remained, a testament to how deeply a message of unworthiness can be implanted in even a brilliant mind.
I'm happy to say that funhouse mirrors are becoming less common among the women I meet. Try putting one in front of my daughter. She'll just laugh and smash it. Women should never forget that it is common for powerful and seemingly self-assured males to have more than a bit of the Wizard of Oz in them. Pull the curtain aside, and you'll often discover they are not supermen after all. (Just ask their wives!)
So, my fellow males, what's in this for us? Why should we care whether the remaining barriers facing women are dismantled and the fun-house mirrors junked? Never mind that I believe the ethical case in itself is compelling. Let's look instead to your self-interest.
No manager operates his or her plants at 80% efficiency when steps could be taken that would increase output. And no CEO wants male employees to be underutilized when improved training or working conditions would boost productivity. So take it one step further: If obvious benefits flow from helping the male component of the workforce achieve its potential, why in the world wouldn't you want to include its counterpart?
Fellow males, get onboard. The closer that America comes to fully employing the talents of all its citizens, the greater its output of goods and services will be. We've seen what can be accomplished when we use 50% of our human capacity. If you visualize what 100% can do, you'll join me as an unbridled optimist about America's future.
