SHARK TANK S4 E13 – finale

First I would like to thank all the people who have come to the blog to read my thoughts about the business that we have met with during this season of Shark Tank. Thanks to all the people who have stepped onto the red mat to pitch their businesses to us. I admire your courage to have an idea and start a business and then to stand in front of all of us and lot of cameras to tell Australia about your dream. I hope all the businesses learnt something from one or all of…

SHARK TANK S4 E12

This week we see someone who sees the health of family pets as important as us humans, something that tired campers are going to love and some protection for little twinkle toes at the beach. FRONTIER PETS Anyone that follows my Instagram knows that I love dogs. We have 3. Diana’s vision and her current business is fantastic. With no marketing and 2200 customers, she is doing really well. The ingredients are raw freeze dried using free range ingredients, organic fruits and vegetables and can be consumed by humans (but hopefully aren’t – just in…

WHY MOST PEOPLE FAIL IN BUSINESS

It is dull to most and the #1 task that we pass on to third parties to do on our behalf and unfortunately it is also the number one reason that businesses fail. Yep it is crunching the numbers. We get so caught up in the new product, the colourful logo the exciting aspects in the process of starting a new business that we forget about the foundation, the so called boring stuff,. This includes things like trademarks, patents, setting up the paper work for the ‘back end’ of the business and of course the…

SHARK TANK S4 E11

This week was interesting. We met someone who has made a healthy ice cream….. I am pretty sure that would have hooked you.. So here are my thoughts: FROPRO I really enjoyed Ed’s pitch, he is creating the worlds healthiest ice cream….I am assuming this is as voted by Ed, as I am sure there was not research of data to back up his claim. Fropro has no added processed sugar but did have Stevia which has been quite common on Shark Tank this year.  Stevia getting utilized more and more in healthy products, but…

SHARK TANK S4 E10

This week, some very confident (like REALLY confident) young men who have joined the space race, a passionate mum and daughter combo wanting to save the planet, a solution to mums working from home and a tech idea that hopes to provide a solution for the bricks and mortar retail foot traffic decline. JAR EDUCATION These young guns have founded an aerospace company – the part they were selling to us is a program educating young people through school programs designed to be engaging and to teach them about the building and use of drones…

SHARK TANK S4 E9

This week, we have may have found a cure from the common cold… or have we..? A super cool unique lamp design, a clever fresh food storage solution which extends the life of our fresh produce (love this idea) and Maggie Beers recipe for a cake – done differently. FLU AWAY 48 (no website available yet) This pitch had massive claims, one that may be too good to be true. Nicole and Steve purchased the rights to a product called Flu Away 48 from a Belgian company. They claim that this all natural product can…

SHARK TANK S4 E8

This week a business that all us working parents need; help during school holidays, a solution to soggy tables at pubs, a business that will reduce tons of waste and a solution to the frustration of getting the right tradies. Oh and Andrew gets grumpy this time.. but then feels bad about it. Let’s looking behind the tank in episode 8…… KIDSCO. Out of all the business that we saw on Sharktank this season, this one was probably the most needed and wanted for busy working parents. The need for this business is also very…
