Medals For Men Doing Chores - Week 2 - Episode 505
 

 Have you ever done household chores around the house and like a little recognition for a job well done? Has your wife or girlfriend ever said to you "What, do you want a medal for doing that"? Well James O'Brian's wife asked him just that, and yes, he really did want a medal. James came up with 5 medals in fact, and he's bringing them to the Shark Tank Show in the second week of season 5.
 
My first impression when I first seen The Man Medals was I'm sure there's a niche market for this product, especially with couples that have been together for a looong time. But is this market big enough to get any of the Sharks to invest in these specialty medals specifically for men?
 

According to the website there's a total of 6 Man Medals available including I picked up my dirty clothes, I put the toilet seat down, I took the garbage out, I ran the vacuum cleaner, I asked for directions and I put the toilet paper roll on. My second impression was there seems to be some really good medals missing from this list. What about a medal for doing the dishes, one of my least favorite chores?

How about a new medal for doing the laundry or one for the bedroom, that is sure to get a lot of action if ya know what I mean. I would much rather "earn" the bedroom medal than the medal for taking the trash out.


Another great idea for The Man Medals would be one for "Just Being You" which is the Greatest Medal Of All!

O'Brian took The Man Medal idea and started a kickstarter project to raise capital and get these into production. With a modest goal of $1000, James successfully achieved this amount in April of this year. The true meaning and inspiration behind what the Man Medal represents can be read in the Updates on his Kickstarter page.

The Man Medals does seem to have potential if Jame's ever decides to offer a larger variety of Man Medals and maybe that's why he's going to the Shark Tank Show. As far as making it on the Shark Tanks most successful product list, I'm not so sure. But the fact Jame's O'Brian took the Man Medals from an idea all the way to the Best Reality Show on TV (I don't care what the Emmy's say, the Shark Tank IS the Best :) will keep paying dividends for many years to come.

p.s.- I would like a 7% royalty fee in perpetuity for any of the new ideas mentioned above. LOL, I think Kevin O'Leary is starting to rub off on me. All the ideas given on the Shark Tank Success Blog are free to build upon and hopefully inspire new creativity to whomever reads them.

All it takes is "One Good Idea" and a burning desire to make it a Success.

Failure is NOT An Option!
