Sunscreenr on Shark Tank

Sunscreen Saver - Episode 805 - October 28, 2016
Sunscreen Saver UV spectrum
Sunscreenr Sunscreen Protector
 If there was ever a product seen on the Shark Tank Show everyone will want to buy for their Family, then the Sunscreenr appearing in Episode 805 is certainly the "one." The Sunscreenr is a small device with a built-in UV spectrum camera that lets you see the unprotected skin for the first time. Have you ever wondered if you put enough sunscreen or sunblock lotion on, or perhaps not enough in certain areas without realizing your skin's exposed to the sun's harmful UV rays? We'll, with this technological-advanced Sunscreener UV spectrum device you'll never be guessing again.

The inventor of the SunScreenr UV camera is Dave Cohen, a biochemist from Chapel, North Carolina, who'll be demonstrating this remarkable product on the Shark Tank Season 8 in Episode 805 next Friday night, October 28, 2016.

Dave first took his Sunscreenr invention to Kickstarter to prove the concept and successfully raised over $120,000.00 with a $45k goal on June 24, 2016. It appears Sunscreener was also available on Indiegogo at the same time raising an additional $165,000.00 in funding on June 23, 2016. According to both sites, the products still in pre-order stage with the first shipment to the backers hopefully shipping in time for Christmas.

As with almost all technologically advanced products seeking initial funding, the Sunscreenr's running a little behind with the overwhelming success of his crowdfunding campaigns. Now add an appearance on the Shark Tank Show in Episode 805, and Cohen's going to be swamped keeping up with demand for this innovative product.

Is there a Shark Tank Investor already working with Sunscreenr? I sure hope so because this products a Billion Dollar Idea if there was ever one seen on the Shark Tank Show. Every single Family that spends lots of time outside in the Sun is a potential customer. How cool is that having a small device where you can see the UV spectrum on exposed skin? Welcome to the 21st Century!

Watch Sunscreenr on Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 805 and see if the Sharks invest in this revolutionary new product when it comes to protecting yourself from the Suns harmful UV rays.

Unpack on Shark Tank

Suitcase Shopping /Delivery - Episode 805 - October 28, 2016

suitcase package delivery
 The Unpack is coming to the Shark Tank Show in Episode 805 with a suitcase packing service like nothing you've seen before. Imagine going on vacation, but don't feel like packing and lugging around a suitcase during your trip. You just want to jump on an airplane, go to the Hotel and have everything waiting for you when you arrive.

When I say UnPack packs everything, I mean they supply anything you will need depending on the destination and your clothing style. I'm talking a brand new wardrobe decked-out with a pair of Nike Jordan just sitting there waiting in your Hotel Room. Any suitcase related item you can imagine (and pay for) will be packed into a suitcase for you to Un-Pack when you arrive.

The entrepreneurs bringing The UnPack packing service to the Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 805 is Aaron Liskov and Andrew Zahornacky. Before the UnPack service goes shopping for your vacation, they'll need to know all about your body style and clothing style preferences first.

The sign-up process for Unpack is like an online checklist covering your entire body so be sure to measure your neck size first. Another question is, "What is your button size?" My button size?  Hmm, I never measured the size of my button before.

Unfortunately, there's no way to determine how much The UnPack suitcase packaging services costs without creating an account (including the checklist) on the website. Just thinking about the logistical nightmare getting the suitcases to the right destination on time (let alone going shopping for you first) would add considerable cost using this service. But Hey, if money were no object, it sure would make any vacation that much more memorable.

Watch The UnPack on Shark Tank Episode 805 next Friday night, October 21, 2016, and see if the Sharks invest in the suitcase packing business.

Lulu Bang

Joyce's Lulu Bang Sauce - Episode 805 - October 21, 2016
Lulu Bang BBQ Sauce

 With a name like Lulu Bang soon-to-be a Shark Tank product in Episode 805, Joyce's Soulful Cuisine must have lots of Seasoning Bang in their sauce's. According to everyone (and yes I do mean everyone), the Award Winning Joyce's Lulu Bang Sauces is one of the best on the market.

The entrepreneurs representing Joyce's Lulu Bang Sauces on this Episode of the Shark Tank is sisters, Jorrae, Ashley and Kelly Beard from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The name "Joyce's Soulful Cuisine" is a successful restaurant and catering service named in memory of their mother Joyce, the original creator of the Lulu Bang sauces. The four types of sauces include Joyce's Original Lulu Bang BBQ, Asian Persuasion, Bourbon Marinade and It's Just Hot Sauces. All the products are in high-demand at Joyce's Soulful Cuisine, and soon at your local grocery store if it's not sold there already.

Several contestants come into the Shark Tank looking for the Sharks help getting their products on store shelves like Wal-Mart, Target, and even QVC. In Joyce's Lulu Bang's case, the products already available in so many Walmart Stores I didn't bother to count. If you live in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey or Maryland to name a few, then chances are you'll already find the Lulu Bang Sauces on the shelves. In fact, it looks like at least a dozen new States will be selling these products soon. Unfortunately, Arizona isn't one of them. We'll; there goes that review. "Just Kidding."

How much does a jar of Lulu Bang Sauce cost? And can you buy any of the sauces with a "Bang" online?

Surprisingly, (compared most other Shark Tank products) all the Lulu Bang Sauces retail for $7.99 each including Free Shipping if bought online. Wow, you can't even send a Potato Postcard in the mail (also seen in this Episode 805) for that price.

 If I didn't know any better, I'd say this entire deal smells a little fishy like there's already a Shark (or two) swimming around in Lulu Bang's pond. I guess we'll have to wait until next Friday night to find out for sure.

Watch Joyce's Lulu Bang on Shark Tank Episode 805, October 28, 2016, and see if the Sharks get a bang for their buck investing in this Sauce Brand that's going Nationwide, FAST!

Potato Parcel

Potato Postcards - Episode 805 - October 28, 2016

Potato Postcards sent in the mail
Anonymously Send A
Potato Parcel in the Mail
 The Potato Parcel is appearing on Shark Tank Episode 805 with the craziest idea ever seen on the Show. What is the Potato Parcel Postcard? And how did such a product get on the Shark Tank Show? The Potato Parcel Business is "exactly" what the name imply s. Instead of sending someone a traditional postcard, you can now send them a potato in the mail instead.

The entrepreneur behind the Potato Parcel is Alex Craig, who''ll be appearing on the next Shark Tank in Episode 805 with Riad Gekhit, October 28, 2016. The idea is simple, but with margins over 1000% profit, the Sharks will certainly be impressed. In lots of ways, the Potato Parcel business model reminds me of "I Want To Draw A Cat For You" seen in Season 3. It was such a simple (and profitable) concept Mark Cuban invested in the business. But a potato already starting to rot when your recipient receives it in the mail? Who would possibly spend hard earned money on that? You might be very surprised.

Alex launched his potato-in-the-mail idea online in May 2015, starting with a post on Reddit that soon went viral. On the second day in business, Craig sold over $2,000.00 of his potato's for only $9.95 each (plus shipping). The company is now averaging (Before their Shark Tank appearance) between $10 to $20,000.00 per month in online orders.

What makes these potato's the most valuable on the planet?  First off, you can send them anonymously to anyone with a personal message up to 130 characters long. Alex claims it took hours of R n D (Research and Development) finding the perfect instrument for writing notes on a potato. He ultimately chose the G2 Pens available on Amazon for a buck apiece.

A single G2 pen (the most expensive tool to create this soon-to-be Shark Tank product) can easily produce over 100 Potato Parcels or $1000.00 in revenue. Those are fantastic margins in anyone's book, but what about the labor costs usually being the biggest expense? The Potato Parcel has also mastered this technique averaging only 30-seconds per order to complete. What's not to like about this business model?

Interestingly, it looks like Alex Craig auditioned for the Shark Tank four total times before getting on this Episode 805 in Season 8. Considering Potato Parcels been in business since May 2015, He's apparently taken a few other business ideas to the auditions before this appearance. If that is indeed the case, "Congratulations Alex for Never Giving Up On Your Dream." But selling rotting potato's in the mail? I guess you never know until you try.

Watch Potato Parcel on the brand new Shark Tank Episode 806 next Friday night, October 28, 2016, and see if the Sharks invest in this rather unusual, but extremely profitable online business. If I had to guess, I'd say Kevin O'Leary will add up the costs to start a competing company when valuing this business. In this case, it would cost less than $20 bucks and lots of viral traction. Good Luck Kevin!

Clothing Designs - Episode 806 - October 21, 2016
Clothing Designs and Manufacturing

Shark Tank Episode 806
(Michelle inside Target holding their cheap version of Her Design)
 The SandiLake Clothing Co has a story like no other product ever seen on the Shark Tank Show. Imagine starting an online clothing store featuring your custom designs and then one day walk into a Target Store seeing them on full display. It sounds like a dream-come-true for most clothing designers, but in SandiLake Clothing's case, it's clear they'd been ripped off. How did SandiLake's best selling t-shirt clones end up for sale on Target Store shelves?

The owner of SandiLake Clothing is Melissa Lay from Milwaukie, Oregon, who'll (hopefully) be sharing how her designs was selling without her knowledge at Target Stores on this Shark Tank Episode 806. Now (just in case She doesn't) before a few million Shark Tank Fans jump all over Target for copying a SandiLake designs, it turns out they didn't even know.

At first, Target tried shrugging Melissa off playing a few corporate David vs Goliath games. But thanks to her loyal online customers, this soon-to-be Shark Tank Star's story soon went viral and forced Goliath (Target Stores) to acknowledged they were in-fact selling a cheap knock-off of the exact same design. It turns out a designer working for the large clothing manufacture was inspired by a photo posted on Pinterest. In fact, the designer liked the American flag inspired t-shirt so much, they boldly used the same hashtag #Merica that was first made famous by SandiLake Clothing.

Interestingly, the Clothing Manufacture fired the person that stole the Merica design off Pinterest and offered Lay a clothing design position. That wasn't the first time one of the company's clothing designers was accused of ripping off designs, and she wisely walked away from negotiations. It's a good thing because SandiLake Clothing would've never been considered to appear on Shark Tank Season 8 had she taken that deal.

Watch SandiLake Clothing on the next Shark Tank Show in Episode 806, October 21, 2016, and see if the Sharks invest in Melissa and help get her designs back into Target Stores. Only this time they'll be selling the "real deal" and not a design stolen by a lazy clothing designer copying Pinterest pictures.

SiliDog Pet Tag


Sili Dog on Shark Tank

Silicone Pet Tag - Episode 806 - October 21, 2016
Silicone Pet Dog Tags
SiliDog Tags appearing on
Shark Tank Episode 806
 So what's the SiliDog Pet Tag appearing on Shark Tank Episode 806 all about? For starters, the SiliDog invented by Michael Lickstein from Milwaukee, Oregon, is the first glow-in-the-dark silent pet dog tag on the market. Imagine that. Dog tags made from silicone that doesn't make any clanking noise.

Michael first took his Silly Dog Tags to Kickstarter to prove-the-concept before appearing on the Shark Tank Show in July 2015. The project boasted being "The Worlds Best Dog Tags" that's silent, waterproof, will never fade and comes with a glow-in-the-dark option. Every SiliDog Tag is custom engraved with your pet's name, telephone numbers, home address and license number. Everything you'd expect to see on the old fashion metal dog tags, but the SiliDog Tag uses modern-age silicone that's completely silent and will never fade.

If you're not already sold on silent pet tags yet, you will be after watching SiliDogs video for their Kickstarter project. Michael ended up successfully raising over $11,000.00 to kick-start his pet product in July of last year. Now just a little over a year later, He's leveraged that success into an appearance on the Shark Tank in Season 8.

SiliDog Reviews

 The SiliDog reviews before appearing on the Shark Tank are mixed, to say the least. How can one eCommerce website have an average rating of only 1.5 Stars while another site shows almost a perfect 5 Star Rating for SiliDog? Interestingly, the SiliDog Tags sold on Amazon Prime  only shows three reviews with an average 1.5 Star rating. None of them, however, are from verified purchases according to Amazon. Hmm, something smells a little fishy reading those reviews. If I was Michael, I think I'd take a closer look.

On the other hand, SiliDog Tag's are also sold on Etsy that's known for making customized products. Out of 270 reviews, the Silly Dog Tags scores 4.9 Stars out of a perfect 5 Stars. Not even a single negative review concerning the problems with the product on the other site.

Watch SiliDog on the next Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 806 next Friday night, October 21, 2016, and see if Michael convinces the Sharks to invest in his silent, glow-in-the-dark custom dog tags. Or will the Sharks think dog tag business might be too small and a little silly to add to their Shark Tank investment portfolios?

Safe Grabs


Safe Grabs on Shark Tank

Microwave Easy Grabs - Episode 806 - October 21, 2016
Microwave Easy Grabs
Microwave "Safe Grabs"
 The Safe Grabs formally known as Micro Easy Grab is coming to the Shark Tank in Episode 806 with a cooking utensil that'll revolutionize cooking with microwave ovens. When was the last time you burned yourself taking something hot out of the microwave? Or made a big mess without having a food-grade splatter guard covering your food? Not only does Safe Grabs conveniently solve those problems, but this new Shark Tank product also has at least eight other functions you can use in the kitchen.

The entrepreneur that invented the Safe Grabs is Cyndi Lee, from Houston, Texas, who'll appear on the Shark Tank next week in Episode 806. The main reason Cyndi invented the Micro Easy Grabs in the first place was from continually getting burned when taking bowls and plates out of the microwave. She solved the problem by developing a heat resistant placemat the size of the round plate in microwave ovens. Lee also discovered the Safe Grabs has several other uses in the kitchen making this 8-in-1 multi tool a must-have for millions of Shark Tank Fans.

Getting the Safe Grabs on Shark Tank Season 8 was no easy feat as all the former contestants would agree. For Cyndi, however, it has been particular challenging because the Show already turned Micro Easy Grabs down three times applying for previous Shark Tank Seasons. But there's a reason for everything, and there's a reason her perseverance finally prevailed in getting this product featured on the Show. It turns out it was a blessing in disguise because Safe Grabs wasn't ready to become an Official Shark Tank Product, but it sure is now.

In between auditioning for the Shark Tank for the past several years, Lee's continued perfecting her pitch on QVC and the Steve Harvey Show to name just a few. The Steve Harvey video posted above reveals several weaknesses in the business model at that time, including the "Micro Easy Grabs" name itself. Clearly, Cyndi took the advice of Heather Thomson and Fortune 500 Turnaround Specialist Amelia Antonetti also featured on the same Steve Harvey Show. No doubt the new Safe Grabs is now ready for Primetime and to finally become an Official Shark Tank Product.

Watch Safe Grabs on a brand new Episode 806 of the Shark Tank next week, October 21, 2016, and see if the Sharks warm up to a hot deal helping solve the microwave inherent problems.

Parkers Maple Syrup


Parker's Maple Syrup on Shark Tank

Pure Maple Syrup - Episode 806 - October 21, 2016
Pure Maple Syrup
Parker's Maple Syrup seen on
Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 806
 Parker's Maple Syrup is coming to the Shark Tank Season 8 Episode 806 with one of the sweetest deals ever seen on the Show, pure maple syrup. The entrepreneur who clearly has a passion for making the purest maple syrup imaginable is 18-year-old Joshua Parker, from Canton, New York. Josh started making maple syrup when he was only 11 years old after attending a school field trip that would forever change his life. Who would've thought a trip to a pure maple sugar house would set the wheels in motion for an appearance on the Shark Tank Show only a few years later?

In 2014, when Parker was 16 years old, He was already tapping over 3500 maple trees to keep up with demand for his successful pure maple syrup business. Did you know it takes 40 gallons of sap to produce 1 gallon of pure maple syrup?

The video below is from a News Station interview with Parker in 2014. He was already producing over 1100 gallons of pure maple syrup while still attending High School.

Sure, there's lots of competition when it comes to tapping maple trees for making syrup, but Parker's secret ingredient is how it's boiled to its purest, natural form. Parker's Maple Syrup uses wood pellet evaporators that's more time consuming than modern methods, but the purity of the natural sugars is second to none.

Interestingly, when doing a little research about Parker's Maple Syrup before becoming an Official Shark Tank Product, I ran across another business with a similar name. In fact, at first I thought both Parker's Maple and Parker's Maple Barn was the same business which they're not. The Parker Family Maple Farm dates back to 1884, and Parker's Maple (the product seen on Shark Tank) was of course started by a young entrepreneur only a few years ago. The Parker Family Business probably won't mind being associated with a new Shark Tank product (Hard telling how many other Shark Tank Fans will make the wrong connection). But if you're looking for the Official Shark Tank Maple Syrup then make sure it's simply Parker's Maple Syrup.

Watch Parker's Maple on a brand new Shark Tank Episode 806 next Friday night, October 21, 2016, and see if Joshua can take his passion for making maple syrup to the next level with a little bit of help from the Sharks.
