Another major plus Dr. Jim Lewis had when auditioning for the Show was the fact he already achieved something that all the Sharks look for when determining an investment in a new business or product, lots of proven sales. It appears there are millions and millions of holes punctured in dry wall which until now was a total pain in the ass to fix if you've ever tried to do this handyman task yourself.
One of the most interesting things I like learning is how a new product idea was first conceived by entrepreneurs that eventually grew into a successful business. How Dr. Jim Lewis transformed from a Medical Doctor to a Wall Doctor turned out to be very interesting indeed. It all started 3 short years ago during Christmas when Dr. Lewis was retrieving a box from the basement.
When his Daughter had an accident, He immediately dropped the box and ran to her cries. Dr. Lewis did what any good Dad would do and bandaged up her minor scrapes. Getting back to the box full of Christmas decorations, Jim noticed he put a hole in the drywall which ended up costing over $250 to get repaired by a professional after failed attempts repairing the hole himself. If big bandages are the perfect solution to help repair us, then why can't the same principals be applied to fixing holes in drywall? I guess it would only take an entrepreneurial spirited Doctor to finally make the connection and invent the ultimate easily applied Band-Aid to fix most holes in drywall.

Wall Rx before Shark Tank UpdateFrom what I can tell, the Wall Doctor Repair Kits were already being sold for about a year when Dr. Lewis auditioned in front of the Sharks this past fall. In that short amount of time over 90,000 units of the Wall Rx had already been sold, which is really an incredible number for a brand new start-up if you think about it. To achieve these impressive numbers, Jim had a little Home Improvement Center by the name of Lowe's that was more than interested in selling Wall Doctor Repair Kits. In fact Lowe's loves this new drywall repair kit so much, they already carry the Wall Rx Brand in all of their 1700 stores.
Personally I think all the Sharks would be crazy if they didn't invest in this much needed home improvement product. The only ones that will lose on this deal will be the professionals no longer making a good living fixing tedious drywall holes.
