Who watched last night's Shark Tank on ABC???
FANTASTIC...I loved it.
So, the 411 on it is that novice entrepreneurs that make different things come and pitch their ideas to "the shark tank." The sharks are five business people:Barbara Corcoran (the real estate woman on The Today Show),Kevin Harrington, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John (The FUBU founder), and Kevin O'Leary. You pitch your idea and then the sharks requesting a certain amount of money and stake in your company to help "take it to the next level." The sharks offer feedback in a funny, uncomfortable, and downright good business sense way and they can negotiate their offerings. It was very interesting, entertaining, and chock full of a few uncomfortable moments with the judge that is this show's version of Simon Cowell.
My favorite line of the night was "If you were in one of my business classes, I would soak you in water and when you spoke I would use the cow prod on you." It was something like that and I need to file that one away and perhaps it would come in handy again during a conversation down the road.
I don't know what will happen when the great fall lineup comes back, but I will definitely dip my feet in the shark filled waters next week.
Hope you all had a great weekend. Can't wait to hear about them.
PS-We also watched Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami and I feel a good bit dumber. Don't ask me why we watched or even left it there. I think we were so tired and too lazy to actually change the channel and find something different to watch.
