The Blessing of Opportunity
On Friday, February 5, Major Mom Founder and CEO, Angela Cody-Rouget, will appear on ABC’s Shark Tank. It is an opportunity that the team has prayed for over the years; a chance to share Major Mom’s mission and talent with the world (Shark Tank averages 6.9 million viewers, according to Variety, November 2015).
Since sharing the news of our episode air date (Again, that’s Friday, February 5 on ABC – tell your friends!), we’ve received congratulations and prayers from our families, friends and clients. We welcome them all! We know that this once in a lifetime opportunity is not only to reach out to those who need our help, but it is also a chance to inspire others to do what they love and follow their passion for organizing (and perhaps become future Liberators!).
Often, when we work with a new client, they are at first nervous about letting us into their homes. Inviting strangers into your home and sharing your hopes and dreams with them can be a nerve wracking and emotional rollercoaster. This experience has reminded our team how those clients feel, and we hope to receive the same encouraging, ‘judgement-free’ experience from viewers that we promise our clients!
We don’t know what the future brings, but we know that we are ready for whatever God has in His plan for us. We invite you to be there with us, to tune in and find out what happens with us, and hold us in your prayers, as you are ever in ours.

“SHARK TANK” SALUTES THE MILITARY WITH ALL VETERAN AND MILITARY SPOUSE ENTREPRENEURS ON THE FEBRUARY 5 EPISODE OF “SHARK TANK”
“Episode 719” – Veteran and military spouse entrepreneurs try to enlist the Sharks’ investments in their products—will it be a mission accomplished? Two military spouses from Murfreesboro, TN have built a handbag empire using upcycled military materials and piecework from other military spouses—but will the $200+ price point for a bag deter a deal? A former Marine from Columbia, MD and his business partner from Dallas, TX try to sell the Sharks on their gloves that put wireless control of your phone at your fingertips, even while on the ski slopes and motorcycles. A former Air Force Major from Phoenix, AZ looks to franchise her personal organization business that can keep Americans’ homes “majorly” de-cluttered. Two veteran army rangers tout their product line, which empowers locals who make “cool products in dangerous places”—namely Colombia, Afghanistan and Laos—from sandals to sarongs and jewelry. They promote peace through business instead of bullets. “Shark Tank” revisits Air Force veteran Kristina Guerrero of La Pine, OR, owner of Turbopup, the canine meal bars, in which Daymond John invested last season, to see how her business has expanded in just 18 months, on “Shark Tank,” FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5 (9:00–10:01 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network.
The Sharks in this episode are Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, Lori Grenier and Robert Herjavec.
