A Mason City woman will be pitching her idea on an ABC reality TV show tomorrow night. Jackie Sheller Courtney graduated from Newman High School in 2002 and will appear on the show “Shark Tank”, a program that features different entrepreneurs who pitch their business or product idea to a set of investors, or “sharks”, with the hope that they’ll invest in it.
Courtney owns the online bridal boutique “nearlynewlywed.com”, which allows brides to buy, try and then sell once-worn dresses at a fraction of their original price. The program airs at 8 o’clock on Friday night.
