Raven Thomas & The Painted Pretzel

Raven Thomas founder, The Painted Pretzel is my pick to send Shark Tank fans online immediately to order her specialty Gourmet Pretzels. The last time an event happened like what I’m anticipating tonight, was caused by Barbara Corcoran’s investment in Kim Nelson’s Daisy Cakes. She had over 70,000 visits in the first three minutes of […]

Rick Hopper, Founder of SpecSecure by ReadeREST KIRK:  My Shark Tank Predictions start with Rick Hopper, Founder of ReadeREST, The company that manufacturers SpecSecure.

ShowNo Shelly Ehler Exclusive Interview

Shelly Ehler continues to impress me even more after I spoke with her last night in an over the phone interview. She said she felt sick to her stomach for the three weeks leading up to her appearance on the show and just before she walked out on the set, she mouthed a profane word […]

Magazine entitled “Why I Invest In People, Not Companies.” In this interview, Daymond echos many mantras I have embraced as a lifelong salesman and entrepreneur. One thing he stresses is trust. In order to invest in a company, whether it is on the Shark Tank or […]

Jared Joyce, Inventor: Mad Genius or Shark Bait

Fans and followers of the Shark  Tank have surely seen Jared Joyce’s video from Kirk’s post yesterday.  It is unclear- probably intentionally so- exactly what Jared will be pitching to the sharks. This is somewhat unusual for the shark tank since most entrepreneurs have one specific product to pitch. Kirk guessed he’d be pitching his […]

M3 Girl Designs

M3 Girl Designs is run by the mother/daughters team of Diane, Maddie, and Margot Bradshaw. The trio of female entrepreneurs appeared on Shark Tank and embodied one of the more curious business on the show to date. Two kids and a mom selling crafts is not unusual in itself, what makes M3 Girl Designs unique […]

Talbott Teas Shows the Power of Shark Tank

I had intended to react to the Talbott Teas segment on Friday’s Shark Tank. It was the most powerful pitch I have seen on the show to date. They had everything the sharks would want: sales went from $100,000 in 2009 to $500,000 through three quarters in 2011, they invested $300,000 of their own money, […]
