Sarah Ribner is co-founder of PiperWai, a company that developed as an artisan brand, creating natural deodorant that actually works!
 
In today's conversation, Sarah and I discussed the problem that lead to her and her life long friend and partner, creating the product.  We talked through what went into them building their pitch and the research required to not only get featured but negotiate a winning outcome with one of the sharks. Sarah shares how they went from doing 500 units prior to the airing, and experienced an almost immediate back order of over 120,000 units. You've got to hear about the challenges they faced and what they did to help calm the customer service headaches that developed as a result.
