Shark Tank Show Episode #417
Friday July 12, 2013
This Friday Night's Shark Tank Show was first seen earlier this year in March of 2013. Since that time, I can safely say that all four Entrepreneur's from this episode have been extremely busy and all of them have become a Huge Success in their own right. It's not very often I can say that about all the contestants seen on a single episode, but this one I most definitely can.
Cell Helmet Update:
The Cell Helmet is a cellphone case that comes with a guarantee if anything should ever happen to your iPhone. If your cell phone does get damaged while inside the Cell Helmet, they will either fix it or replace it with a brand new iPhone. The Sharks did find a few holes in their business plan and as a result did not invest in this business. Bad Mistake!
I thought the cell phone insurance was Great Idea then, but think it's even a better one now. Ever since appearing on the Shark Tank, Cell Helmet sales are up over 1000% with several hundred retail stores now interested in carrying this very creative new business model.
Baby Loves Disco Update:
The Baby Loves Disco Business is another business model that has lots of potential. Any time's a good time to throw a party, especially when kids are involved. Andy and Heather clearly did not get a fair shake on the Shark Tank Show on several accounts. Why would the producer's 'approach them' to be on the Show when they have thousands of potential contestants going out of their way to get a coveted spot?
Not sure on that one, but now everyone knows about the Baby Loves Disco Business and they are selling out wherever they go. Lot's of video's on the website with Live Baby Disco Parties and everyone seems to be having a Great Time! That's what it's all about!
Ryan "Cowboy" Ehmann Lose 12" Fitness Program
The Lose 12" Workout Program started by Ryan "Cowboy" Ehmann has to one of the most memorable pitches on the Shark Tank in some time. It's interesting to go back and see what I wrote about the contestant's pre-shark tank appearance. In Ryan's case I seemed to of been fixated on how many websites he has out there. Instead of focusing all his efforts to one main website, his products and services was scattered over many. Now after watching Ryan on the Shark Tank, it's easy to see why. This guy with Abs made of steel has more energy then 5 normal people combined. A lot of energy that just needed to be laser focused. Ryan found that focus in his New Business Partner and now Good Friend +Daymond John
Ryan Ehmann also has this social networking down to a science continually posting interesting things on his Facebook page. Yep, it was only a matter of time before Ryan made a new workout DVD called "Work Your Abs Off" inside a corral full of Horses and Cowgirls. Wooo Hoo, That's What I'm Talkin About!
CordaRoy's Bean Bag Beds Update:
It was no secret I loved the CordaRoy Bean Bag Beds the first time I seen one. A quality made bean bag that turns into a bed. It's A Super Cool Idea that +Lori Greiner agreed with me and bought a 58% controlling interest in the business for only $200,000.00. Apparently a lot of Shark Tank Fans was also interested in a Cordaroy's Bean Bag Bed and crashed the website within minutes of first appearing on the Shark Tanl. It took them a solid 24 hours to finally get back online and start taking order's in huge quantities.
Lori Greiner has already made a few fantastic deals on the Shark Tank, but something tells me this one is going to rise to the top among the Best of the products Her Brand represents. In addition to large orders coming from the website, they are also in the works of getting the CordaRoy's Bean Bags into all 1400 Bed Bath and Beyond Stores. I'm not sure whats taken so long (probably just now catching up with all the orders) but Greiner is scheduled to have the CordaRoy Brand on her QVC Show next month in August.
Painted Pretzel Update:
Whats not to like about a Gourmet Painted Pretzel? These pretzels really do taste as good as they look and you can now buy them at several hundred locations around the country. In fact several million dollars worth of these chocolate covered pretzels have been sold in Sam's Club Store's alone. With Mark Cuban as Raven's new business partner, these pretzels have become a huge success that's still keeping Thomas extremely busy.
No doubt the $100,000.00 +Mark Cuban invested in the Gourmet Painted Pretzel Business will be paying nice dividends for a long time to come. Mark Cuban has a list of all His Companies He's invested in, with the Painted Pretzel proudly displayed within this impressive list.
This really is one of the Greatest Success Stories ever told on the Shark Tank from taking a great consumable product and making it into a National Brand.
