Cerebral Success Shark Tank Success Story
SmartX Brain Food Supplement
Trevor came on the Shark Tank seeking $75,000.00 for a 20% stake in Cerebral Success Brain Food supplement pills mostly being targeted to college students when it's time for exams. After a not so pleasant experience dealing with the other four Shark Tank Investors, Barbara comes out of nowhere and offers Cerebral Success $75,000.00 for a 40% equity stake in this brain supplement business.
Cocoran's reasons why she thought Cerebral Success would become a Shark Tank Success was two-fold. First, as always, Barbara saw the real entrepreneurial passion Hiltbrand clearly displayed during his pitch to the Sharks, even though the school teacher theatrics was over exaggerated a little IMO. The other reason Barbara made Cerebral Success an offer when the other Sharks already threw this product under the bus was for personal reasons directly affecting Her Family.
Barbara mentions her husband Bill, has been taking Adderall along with a host of other brain food stimulants for most of his life. She also confirms from her Son who attended an Ivy League College, this prescribed drug "Adderall is the drug of choice when studying for exams and helping concentrate". The Cerebral Success, however, is an all-natural brain food stimulant using 12 major nootropic ingredients that naturally stimulate the brain.
In the end, Barbara Corcoran makes a deal with Trevor Hiltbrand for $75,000.00 and 40% stake in Cerebral Success contingent on the product getting some type of liability insurance policy.
Cerebral Success Update after Shark Tank Deal
Approximately 50% of the deals made on the Shark Tank don't close after the Show, but Barbara Corcoran did indeed invest in Cerebral Success with Trevor Hiltbrand. Even when the deals closed there's still no guarantee it will become a success with another 50% failure rate tacked on to the bottom line. Corcoran wrote an excellent article for LinkedIn Pulse where Barbara explains after every deal made on the Shark Tank she hangs a picture of the entrepreneur on a wall. If the business is growing into a successful business, it remains the same. But if it's not, She turns your picture upside down as a reminder to stop wasting any more time.
Fortunately for Trevor, not only is his picture still hanging on Barbara's most successful investments wall, She goes out of her way mentioning his business inside the LinkedIn Pulse article. At first Barbara describes the Cerebral Success pitch as (and I quote) "The absolute worst pitch I heard this season was from Cerebral Success". Ouch. Towards the end of the article, Corcoran gives Hiltbrand one of the very best compliment's any Shark could give an entrepreneur when she said, "Trevor is a natural-born fighter and Cerebral Success is one of the best investments I've made on the Shark Tank". Considering how many deals Barbara's completed on the Shark Tank in the past seven Seasons, I'd say that's an exceptional comment He rightfully earned coming from one of the most outspoken Sharks (with the exception of Kevin O'Leary of course) inside the Tank.
Cerebral Success also took Corcoran's advice not only getting the proper liability insurance for this product but also paying for an independently study helping prove the results from consuming the SmartX brain supplements. The independent controlled study scientifically demonstrated Cerebral Success does indeed have a significant improvement in your focus, memory, concentration and processing speed with dramatic results in all areas.
Another independent study involving the Best Brain Supplement's conducted by SupplimentHQ.com goes into great detail describing what brain food supplements are and why it helps maximize your full potential brain power. The article then list's the top 5 Best Brain Supplement's on the market with the SmartX Cerebral Success earning the #1 position for increasing mental performance.
Congratulations, Trevor on turning one of the worst Shark Tank pitches in the History of the Show (according to Barbara, not me :) into one of the Best Shark Tank Success Stories of All Time!
