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…

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 E6

This week it is all about appealing to people’s indulgences, from the finest chocolate and vibrating underpants to a healthy vodka and an environmentally friendly solution for winter clothes drying. One of the contestants even got me standing on my head and doing some other moves that I never envisioned that I would be doing on Shark Tank.. Oh and Steve cracks it again – this time at Naomi!   WEARABLE X https://www.wearablex.com/ If you follow my blog or social media posts you will know that I am a massive fan of yoga and it…

I have just launched a new podcast – ‘Superwomen we ain’t’

The truth about starting a business, crafting a career, having a family and managing to fit it all in. Janine Allis, founder of Boost Juice and Gram Consulting Group founder Margie Hartley are both accomplished business women but superwomen they ain’t! Join them as they talk about the aspects of business you don’t find in books, but they wish they had known before starting out. Success doesn’t happen overnight. You can change and move forward at any point. You can reinvent yourself at any age and realise that a failed moment or mistake in business…

SHARK TANK S4 E1

Here we go again for season 4! What a blast to once again sit with my fellow investor sharks and have the privilege of seeing these amazing (and some not so amazing) businesses walk onto our red mat. I approached this season with a student mentality and looked at what I could learn from these entrepreneurs and how I could help them, even if they didn’t get a deal. After the filming, I have met with many of the businesses that appeared on the series, including those that didn’t get a deal and every day,…
