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.

Another week of incredible ideas, passionate people and shark disagreements.. (no walk outs this week, luckily) Also this week, I have launched my very first Podcast that I am doing with the talented Margie Hartley, Called “Superwomen, we ain’t”.  The podcast is…

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,…
