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.

The Last Lid Shark Tank Review

I enjoy the Shark Tank and the idea of “the little guy” getting a chance to take an idea or an invention to the next level with the significant capital and expertise of the sharks. Unlike my co-author, Kirk Taylor, I don’t do any back end research on the would be investors; I like reacting […]

Is Reality TV Real?

Is Reality TV real? In some cases we don’t think so, but in this case, more than most viewers and even writers know. Rafe Needleman posted a column on CNET titled “Stiffed by ‘Shark Tank’ VC, startup CEO Persveres” on Valentine’s Day.
