Shark Tank Company Profile: Cam MacKugler’s SeedSheet

On April 7th five lucky companies will have the chance to gets some investor money from the sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank. However, not before they have to give the presentation of a lifetime. One of the companies that is vying for a piece of the pie is SeedSheet. Cam MacKugler realized that organic gardening is a lot harder for people than previously thought. It’s not all about planting a seed in the ground and simply letting it grow. That’s why Cam decided to come up with an "idiot proof" organic gardening system. SeedSheet is a garden that literally unrolls and is ready to go. If you can unroll a blanket, you can have an organic garden. According to Shark Tank’s blog: READ MORE...

Shark Tank Casting Causes Wave of Activity at the Morongo Casino

You might recall that I announced recently that Shark Tank would be having open call casting auditions in three separate locations across the country. The first set of auditions took place yesterday at the Morongo Resort and Casino in California. Entrepreneurial hopefuls lined up in droves for the chance to be the next company to be in business with one of the six investor sharks on the show. Only 500 wristbands were handed out to those who showed up prepared with a filled-out application and a desire to showcase their business ideas. Turns out there were a lot more than that who actually showed but the fittest of the fittest survived. READ MORE...

Shark Tanks Mark Cuban Exonerates No Idea Donald Trump In Russia Scandal Kind Of

No one is ever going to confuse Shark Tank judge Mark Cuban with a supporter of Donald Trump , but today the critical billionaire offered the big bucks POTUS a bit of backhanded slack of sorts when it came to the sprawling scandal over Russian influence in last year's election and the former Celebrity Apprentice host's own campaign and this is no April Fool's gag. Claiming that President Trump "had no clue" about possible Putin string pulling and weaponized information ....Read More... http://deadline.com/2017/04/donald-trump-mark-cuban-russia-scandal-shark-tank-twitter-michael-flynn-1202058139/

Shark Tank Star Daymond John Reveals His Trick To Stay Focused All Day

With a net worth of $250 million and the majority of that money being "self-made" you might want to listen to Shark Tank’s Daymond John when it comes to the things he does to be successful. The founder of FUBU created one of the most successful fashion brands in the 90s and he didn’t do it without risk. Sensing potential for the brand, Daymond and his mother mortgaged their house for $100,000 to generate start-up capital. In addition to Brown, he recruited longtime friends J. Alexander Martin and Keith Perrin into the business, and began sewing the FUBU logo onto hockey jerseys, sweatshirts, and T-shirts. To make ends meet, John held a full-time job at Red Lobster, working on the FUBU business in between shifts. In 1993, he convinced LL Cool J, an old neighborhood friend, to wear a FUBU T-shirt for a promotional campaign. The rest as they say, is history. READ MORE...

Shark Tank Tree-T-Pee: The Most Selfless Entrepreneur to Ever Appear on the Show

If there’s one episode of Shark Tank that I believe stuck out most in everyone’s mind the day it occurred it was when farmer Johnny Georges came out to promote his idea called "The Tree-T-Pee." At one point in his presentation he forgot his pitch and there was a humongous silence. Johnny’s been a farmer for over 20 years and it turns out had a very simple and extremely innovative idea. His product, Tree T Pee, is meant to conserve water through irrigation, and has served to do so quite effectively. The amount of water used per tree has gone from 25,000 gallons per year down to 800 gallons per year. While that in itself is unbelievable, what Johnny was selling his units for was even more insane. Each unit cost him $3.59 to make and he was selling them for $4.50. At that point in the show he had sold 127,000 units. This is when things got awkward and Georges was getting skewered by the Sharks on his margins. READ MORE...

11 Shark Tank “I’m Out” Memes That’ll Make You Chuckle

As much fun as it is for me to watch Shark Tank for some of the amazing but also embarrassing business ideas that come through the door, you have to give credit to the sharks as well. While I think the show could make it regardless of who the 5 sharks are, it’s obvious that these five have a great chemistry and have been working long enough that they play off of each other pretty well. I mean does anyone really notice when Barbara Corcoran isn’t there? Didn’t think so. A staple line of the show is "I’m Out," or you might hear one of them say "For that reason I’m out." It’s a good line that everyone’s gotten used to and on occasion one of the sharks will give a somewhat funny reason for why they’re out and when they say "I’m out" it’s almost funny. READ MORE...
