Deal on the Shark Tank Show 
 Tim StansburyErin Whalen came into the Shark Tank looking for 40k for a 40% stake in the Grease Monkey Wipes Business. Erin explains that during one of their 100 mile bike rides together she ended up getting a flat tire. By the time Whalen was done, Her hands were covered in grease. As they continued their bike ride they started brain storming of a new portable cleaning product that could easily and conveniently take away grease and dirt while on the go. After a lot of trial and error the pair came up with the perfect product and went into business together. Within a few months Grease Monkey Wipes was featured on the Shark Tank Show.

Bruce will help demonstrate a Computer Instruction Product PCClassesOnline.com designed to bring the classroom to you no matter where you are. PC Classes Online is a subscription based Internet Business that covers several subjects in the technology sector. These are Live Classes where you can participate and ask questions in real time.  
 
I'm not sure where the Producers of the Shark Tank come up with some of these super cool inventions like the SBU from episode 407 but it looks like they found another project that may be on the same path. An Entrepreneur from Fountain Valley, CA. is set to debut he Motorized Vehicle Suit that can get you up to driving speed then back to walking. WHAT? I never heard of such a thing, you say? We'll neither has Google.com because I cant seem to find anything even close to this motorized driving suit (yet). Then again who would of thought of a unicycle that you just sit on and it will take you 10 miles before it runs out of electricity? Could it be one of those

The Shemie

The Shemie on Shark Tank

Season 4 - Episode 407

Wilder in a shemie

 Shelton Wilder a personal stylist, was asking for $60k for a 20% stake in her company valuing it at $300k. Wilder sure knows how to make an introduction into the Shark Tank along with two other models. If you got it (the Shemie of course) then why not flaunt it. Wilder was wildly excited about showing the Sharks her new modern line of slips which she fashionably named the Shemie (pronounced "Shim-ie"). These are not your grandma's slips, no -no- no, these are much more hipper and stylish for the modern day girl.
 Wilder claims she has a verbal agreement with Nordstroms to carry her line in some of their stores. She says she has only been in business for 6 weeks? 6 weeks? How did she get on the Shark Tank so fast? Sheldon also says she has 10 stores with "soft orders". Kevin O'Leary likes Wilder and doesn't want to tear into her (imagine that, O'Leary holding back) but wants an answer as to why her 6 week old company with zero sales is already worth $300k. She tries to convince the Sharks that she is a hustler and will make the Shemie a success.

Lori Greiner senses that something is not adding up and asks again if she sold ANY Shemies at all. Wilder almost doesn't seem to want to talk about it and says "we'll I  recently sold a similar product that I worked with before. The Sharks pick up on there is more to this then meets the eye. She tells them she was in another company with her Best Friend and sold $150k in 18 months. Now that doesn't sound like no sales to me. Robert Herjevic tells her to stop and re-boot. Wilder explains they had to shut it down and she was trying to start a new business with a new brand and a similar product. Thus, no sales for The Shemie yet. From the sounds of it Shelton and her Best Friend may of been celebrating a little too much from their new business success.
Shemie now on Kickstarter
Wilder is cornered by the Sharks when she finally comes out and says that there had indeed been another similar business started by herself and a friend that eventually went bankrupt from partying too much. It starts getting a little emotional and Shelton came across very sincere. Lori congratulates her on getting started down a better path and tells her She is Going To Make It BIG. All the Sharks graciously all go out mainly because she valued her company way too high for starting all over with a brand new Brand.

No doubt Shelton Wilder will take this Shark Tank experience all the way to the bank and make The Shemie (or any project she is passionate about) into a Huge Success. She clearly has the drive and determination to Make It To The Top!

UPDATE:

Shelton Wilder has wasted no time in taking Greiners advise and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to coincide with the airing of the shark Tank Show. Not surprisingly She has already raised over $12k since last night on pre-orders for The Shemie undergarments. Wilder has set a goal of $29k to kick start her business. You can Buy A Shemie Here at her Kickstarter page and help make her dream a Reality.

Cool Treats For Dogs

The Bear & The Rat - Cool Treats For Dogs

On Shark Tank Show Episode #407

 The Bear & The Rat is exactly that, a frozen ice cream treat to spoil your dog. Matt & Meg Meyer are proud owners of two dogs. One Dog's name is Bear and the little one is Rat. Combine the two and you have an unforgettable name of their new product.

   Matt & Meg Meyer came into The Shark Tank looking for $125k for a 20% stake in the cool treats valuing their business at $625k. Everyone knows those Sharks do not like high valuations unless you have a lot to back it up. It's a mistake many entrepreneurs have made in past episodes, and yet it still seems to happen again and again on almost every show. The Sharks not only bring the much needed capital to the table but more importantly they bring the contacts and the ability to get your idea/product to the masses in record time. Some contestants IMO would be way better off just to ask for a dollar for a piece of the company just to get the Sharks into the deal.

Scrub Daddy

Scrub Daddy on Shark Tank Show

Scratch Free Scrubber - Season 4 - Episode 403

 So how do you get the Sharks competing for your business. You invent a Scrub Daddy and continuously keep selling out on QVC three times in a row. Aaron Krause came into the Shark Tank looking for $100k for 10% of the business valuating it at a Cool Million Dollars. Sales in the first 4 months have already reached over $100k.
Shark Tank Success already had Lori Greiner pegged to make an offer on the Scratch Free ScrubDaddy as it seems a perfect fit to include in her line of products. They don't call Greiner the QVC Queen for nothing and she really wanted to add this product to her collection. We also expected another big blow up between Lori and her arch rival, Daymond John via their conversation on Twitter before the show ran. Right before the Shark Tank went to break, it was obvious

SBU Self Balancing Unicycle

SBU Shark Tank Success

3 different SBU self balancing unicycle
3 Designs of the SBU as Focus Designs Continues To Improve On The Self Balancing Unicycle

The SBU Unicycle has completely blown the Shark Tank Success Blog away. WOW- this super cool new toy/transportation has probably shut down FocusDesigns Website during The Shark Tank Show. Did I say WOW!!! Daniel Wood & David Martschinske are the owners and inventors of The Self Balancing Motorized Unicycle.

Are these SBU's cool or what?
 
Adam from Myth Busters on SBU
Even Adam from Myth Busters can lift a SBU
The best way to see this self balancing unicycle in action is on Focus Designs YouTube Page. There is a total of 20 videos that will keep you salivating until you can get your hands on one. The more I watch, the more I personally what one myself. Maybe even two. A SBU can go up to 10 miles on a single charge. There is no pedeling involved and the built-in sensors help you stay

Focus Designs

SBU (self balancing unicycle)  Daniel Wood & David Martschinske of Camas, Wa. is getting their chance to pitch inside the Shark Tank a really amazing electric unicycle. Focus Designs is in their 3rd upgrade and seems to have perfected a rather unusual new form of transportation. If you haven't seen the SBU (Self Balancing Unicycle) in action yet, you might like to watch a few videos from Focuc Designs. A good comparison would be a Segway on 1 wheel and no hands. Sound a little unstable? That's what we thought. But it looks like the learning curve could be learned relatively quickly after a little practice. The SBU V3 is currently on sale for $1,795.00 on their website. I have to admit it sure looks like FUN to try one of these things out. Another form of transportation within a few miles? It certainly could be and with a weight of only, we'll I couldn't find it on the web site but it cant be much. The SBU was even featured on the Myth Busters T.V. Show which gave it a lot of traction. More Info on Focus Designs SBU Here.

Eco Nuts Soap

Eco Nuts Soap on the Shark Tank

Soap Nuts - Season 4 Episode #406 - 10/19/2012 - Update
Shark Tank episode 406
 In trying to predict the next Shark Tank contestants success before the coming show, we spend some time learning about the contestants first before they air on the Shark Tank Show. There seems to be a lot of eco-friendly companies popping up lately which is a good thing, but Eco Nuts Soap was different. An actual soap nut that I was not aware even existed. A nut that easily produces a natural soap plus a couple of ambitious entrepreneurs that have turned them into a successful business.

Mona Weiss and Scott Shields was the last contestants of episode #406 to enter the Shark Tank. Two deals had already been completed earlier with the Sharks which statistically already put Mona and Scott at a major disadvantage if you keep track of those kinds of things.

 They were looking for $175k for a 15% stake in EcoNuts business. The presentation was going very good

PRO-NRG energy drink

PRO-NRG on Shark Tank



Owner of PRO NRG on Shark TankWe'll this episode of the Shark Tank did not disappoint with lots of twists and and unexpected turns. It looks like our predictions didn't do as we'll this episode either with Mark Cuban again not being too understanding with some of the contestants. This show however, he had good reason to get upset a few times, which could serve as a good lesson for any future contestants.

Freaker USA season 4 episode 406
Zack Crain making a memorable impression
on The Shark Tank Show
 We already knew we were in for a Show before Zach Crain made his entrance into the Shark Tank. We just didn't think he would be rolling across the carpet when he walked out to represent the Freakers USA. Can I Get A "WHOOOOP". Geese, that seems to stick in your head a little too easy. Crane, however freaked he may of seemed, it was clear that there was a marketing genius inside. He was looking for $200k for a 10% stake valuing Freaker USA as a $2 million dollar company. Crain had been in business a little over a year when episode #406 was filmed with already $320k in sales.
Crain began his freak en journey starting from a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.com in which he

Cousins Maine Lobster

Cousins "Fresh" Maine Lobster Gets Deal With Barbara Corcoran


Cousins Jim Tselikis & Sabin Lomac the owner's of Cousins Maine Lobster, came in the Shark Tank with a very unique way of serving up fresh Lobster. They were looking for $55k investmeent for only a 5% stake in the lobster business on wheels. This puts a very high valuation of over $1 million on such a new and small company, but they were smart enough to feed the Sharks their signature "Lobster Roll" before they got down to business. They have been in business for only 2 months? We'll that's what they said.(and already worth a million bucks?) The cousins have done $150k in sales and needs the Sharks money to invest in another food truck, but they don't seem to eager to give up much equity. Interestingly, they have a general manager already in place for their "one truck"catering business.
Mark Cuban seems very interested and tries to dig deeper into

I Want To Draw A Cat For You Season 3 Episode


So how do you take such a simple idea and turn it into a Full Time Business? Just ask Steve Gadlin that was featured on the Shark Tank in Season 3 Episode #307.

Steve's entire e-mail to apply for the Shark Tank consisted of a whopping two sentences. ‘I draw stick-figure pictures of cats and sell them for ten bucks apiece … let me at ‘em.’”
Now this might not be the preferred way approaching a major network

PRO-NRG - Is a New Protein Drink with no caffeine or sugar being promoted by NFL Star Brandon Jacobs. This seems like an interesting and potentially a huge deal for one of the Sharks that could challenge Gator-Ade as the Pros drink of choice. It looks like it's just starting to get shelf space in a few stores and gyms but more importantly they were able to get into the New York Giants Superbowl  sidelines earlier this year. The Giants Loved the product. They have just a little over 100 twitter followers at the time of this writing which is not encouraging but it will be interesting to see how much they grow after the Shark Tank Effect takes hold. Can the Sharks real this one in and make it a National Brand?

4 -Marz Sprays started by Father/Son team is looking for $200k for 10% of the company. They claim that their sprays are for vitamins, energy, sleep aid and weight loss support. No need to take a pill when you can just spray a few squirts into your mouth. I think it's a Great Idea having raised one kid that refused to swallow any pill. The Sharks question if this is some kind of gimmick. If there is that much of a market for it, then why hasn't any of the larger pharmaceutical companies came out with their own "pill spray'? Maybe because they haven't dealt with the Sharks on Shark Tank yet. Do they get a deal? My moneys on

Bag Bowl

Bag Bowl on the Shark Tank Season 4 - Episode 4


Bag Bowl Brian and Kevin Flemming
Bag Bowl Demonstrated on "The Shark Tank"
Bag Bowl - Brian & Kevin Flemming is looking for $40k in exchange for a 33% equity stake in their invention. You can basically take a plastic bag and turn it into a bowl with a round collapsible piece of plastic. They have invested $40k of their own money and want a license play for the product. Keven O'Leary can't understand what is so special about this and doesn't think they will get the patent. They went to a large trade show and won an award for their idea but walked away with zero sales. Brian says they are "pre-revenue start-up" which basically means they have not made any money from the Bag Bowl. Daymond John basically nails it with

Back 9 Dips

Back 9 Dips on the Shark Tank Season 4 - Episode 404


Shark Tank Season 4Back 9 Dips - David & Nique Mealey was looking for a $150k investment in exchange for a 15% stake in their company. Back9Dips is basically taking chicken wings and mixing them in with the dip. Mm, I Love It Already. Daymond John ask's "so this is basically a chicken Slurpee"? 

Kevin O'Leary
keeps picturing a chicken going into a blender and getting churned into a dip. He laughs so hard he starts to cry. This throws off the Mealey's from their presentation as it doesn't seem quite that funny, atleast not to them anyway. Lori Greiner jumps in and compliments them that it is really Delicious. Robert wants to know about the business. They started out as a B-B-Q business which the dips became a popular favorite. The sales are close to $400k within the last two years and just landed a 60 store test with a large grocery store. The store required a weekly sales goal which David says they are selling on a daily basis.


Can Back 9 Dips Close The Deal with the Sharks?
Lori still really likes the product but ultimately She's Out. One by one the Sharks start going out. It's not looking very good that any deal is going to get done. It's Daymonds turn in which he is kind of on the fence on making an offer. Geiner cant get seem to forget how good Back 9 dips taste and asks Daymond if She comes back in will He go in with Her for the $150k for 25% of the business. Daymond John actually starts getting emotional as to how similar the Mealey Family is to where he was before L.L. Cool J gave him a shot with FUBU. Lori cant take it any more and says "Daymond lets give them a shot". Nique starts to cry with emotion as she knows they are discussing Her Family's financial future right in front of them. Daymond is not sure He can bring enough to the deal to make it a sold business decision. Lori says we will figure it out together and make it a success. Daymond John didn't get to where he's at by making emotional business decisions but by practical ones where he can honor his part in the business. He's Out! Robert steps in and says "we'll I think in life you sometimes just need a chance" (so true in so many ways) and I would be happy to go in with you Lori for the $150k.

DEAL - Lori Greiner & Robert Herjavec buy into Back 9 Dips for $150k and 25% of the company from David & Nique Mealey.

Side Note: It was obvious that Daymond John was touched by this story. Maybe a little emotionally clouded to make a business decision which he knew would of been wrong. In the end he did the right thing by not offering them any money but by offering something much more valuable in the long run.

Back 9 dips on Shark Tank Will Back 9 Dips Be A Success?


Back 9 will definitely be a success especially in the short run and will continue to grow into a National Brand.. Why am I so sure? Because with any good reality show when you add emotions that really TOUCH peoples lives personally, the audience will remember and WILL at least try the Brand.(which is half the battle for any new product) I believe they call it "The Shark Tank Effect" which will ultimately make the Mealeys millionaires. You read it on the Shark Tank Success Blog First :)

posture now on shark tank show Mike Lane & Matt Franklin came into the Shark Tank seeking $100k for a 15% equity stake in the Posture Now Business. They opened up their presentation with some dancers from "Dancing With The Stars" wearing the Posture Brace which clearly seemed to make a difference . Personally I think it looks a little uncomfortable but if it straightens out your posture then it might be worth the trouble of wearing it. Mike claims He invented this product to get rid of his beer belly by helping him stand up straighter and in a more correct posture.

Getting Down To Business in the Shark Tank

 To date Mike and Matt have sold approx. $330k worth of the Posture Now Braces . They retail for $39.95 and cost around $5.00 to manufacture.

SurfSet  Fitness - Mike Hardwick and Sara Ponn was asking $150k investment for 10% stake in the surfing business. Surfset is basically a surf board you use out of the water and in a fitness center without ever getting wet. It definently looks like a great way to learn how to surf before hitting the waves. Robert jumps up on the Surfboard and hangs 10 for the other Sharks and confirmed that it's not as easy as it looks. But the Surf Set Board sure looks like fun and definitely a good workout. The Board is also easily adjustable depending on your level of experience.

belt bucle/ beverage holder
Belt Buckle/ Beverage Holder
 Beverage Buckle - Jay Kriner is seeking $50k for a 10% equity stake in the belt buckle business. Jay  claims this is one of the most interesting inventions to ever come on the Shark Tank. He wastes no time in getting into his presentation and BA-BAM there's a bottle of beer conveniently resting on ah, belt buckle. Does a bottle standing up look a little awkward resting down there? We'll you be the judge on that one, but some may be fooled from a distance what's sticking up on your front side.

The Beer Buckle Holds A Bottle Or Can Hands Free  with the face plate of the Bev Buckle having any number of designs. It was developed when out on the town with his Friends. He noticed beverages are hard to keep track of while your mingling and wanted a more convenient place to keep track of his beer.
Barbara's first reaction when Kriner hands all the Sharks a Beverage Buckle is "it's kind of heavy" not a good opening line, but She does like the idea. O'Leary asks if he has any sales. Yes, Jay has already sold over 4,000 units over 4 years. Ouch that's not what the Sharks wanted to hear. This equates to $340,000.00 in sales which help put the Sharks at ease a little bit. Jay also holds the patent and can produce the Bev Buckle for $10 each. The buckles retail from $35 up to $110. depending on the front design.

The first Sharks on the Shark Tank Show
Original Shark Tank Sharks from Season 1
 The Shark Tank Show first launched in 2009 with mixed reviews as it was trying to find it's own Niche.
With the success of the Dragons Den already shown in Canada, the first two Sharks Kevin O'Leary and Robert Herjevic, were also hired to get this new show off the ground. Season 2 was even a little bumpier with talk that they might even cancel the Shark Tank altogether.
But the show really started to catch on in season 3 and by season 4, it is now the # 1 rated T.V. Show on Friday Night Prime Time.

As with all successful T.V. Shows, it all comes back to when it first began and which makes each and every contestant from season 1 True Stars in their own right for paving the way.

Below is a list of all 15 episodes that were Featured in Season 1. How successful are these companies now? Are they even still in business or have they gone on to become multi-millionaires?

  • Ionic Ear - Darren Johnson was asking for a cool million dollars for a 15% stake in the company. Instead the Sharks chewed him up and spit him out.
  • WiSpots - Kevin Flannery was asking for $1.2 Million for 10% of the business. The Sharks never even gave him a chance let alone any kind of offer.
  • AVA The Elephant - Tiffany Krumins didn't have a product or a service, but just an idea. An idea that struck gold when Barbara offered her $50,000.00 and a 55% controlling interest in her idea.
  • College Foxes Packing Boxes - Nick Friedman & Omar Soliman wanted $250k for a 25% interest in the business. Got a little greedy and walked away no no deal from any of the Sharks.

Get On The Shark Tank

How Do I Get On The Shark Tank?


 Here are a few hard facts you need to consider before you apply for ABC's "Shark Tank Show". This show is owned by the Walt Disney Internet Group which controls several Internet Properties including ABC.com, ABCNEWS.com, Disney.com, DisneyShopping.com, GO.com and Movies.com to name just a few. Getting on the Shark Tank as you might expect, you will be entering into a legal business contract which high paying lawyers made sure Walt Disney Internet Group is covered for anything imaginable. The "Terms of Use" that you must agree to before they will even consider you as a contestant, is located on Disney's Corporate Website.

Baring hiring a lawyer to explain these rather lengthy contract terms, the short story is THEY MAY TERMINATE YOUR ACCESS OR CHANGE OR DELETE CONTENT OR FEATURE IN ANY WAY, AT ANY TIME AND FOR ANY REASON OR NO REASON. Bottom Line, from a legal stand point if something should happen and a deal goes South or they decide not to air your product or service, your basically S.O.L.

What kind of business plan do you need to bring to the Shark Tank that will get all the Sharks excited? A product so unique (no competition) with patents in place, recent high growth sales and orders coming from big box stores (Mainly Wal-Mart) should do it.

 Daymond John is what one would call a true inspiration to all entrepreneur's. He's a real inspiration for anyone with an idea and the guts to make it a reality. Daymond got the entrepreneur bug while still in High School participating in a co-op program. After a handful of businesses, John got his first inspiration for FUBU when wool hats with the cut off tops were still popular. Having a flare for style, Daymond made 80
 hats and took them to the New York Coliseum where he could find a large audience that he was marketing to. Long story short, Daymond John sold his hats for half the price of the competition and sold out in record time making him $800 on the very first day.

Billionaire Shark Tank Investor - List of Shark Tank Investments


Yes Mark Cuban is married
Mark Cuban and Wife Tiffany Stewart
 Mark Cuban happens to be someone I have followed all the way back into the late 90's when he sold Broadcast.com to Yahoo.com for a whopping $5.9 Billion in yahoo stock.  This was at the height of the dot com boom and just before the dot com bust. At the time Broadcast.com had revenues of approx. $60 Million a year which Yahoo paid roughly 100 times revenue and set Mark Cuban up for life.

From this investment and several other very good investments to follow, Mark Cubans net worth ranked him #459 on the Forbes.com list of the "Worlds Richest People" in 2011 with $2.3 Billion Dollars in assets. What's a guy to do with a few billion dollar payday? If your Mark Cuban you go shopping for a $40 million Gulf-stream V jet and set a Guinness Book of Records with the "largest single e-commerce transaction" over the Internet.
