I got the most exciting call yesterday from Shark Tank TV show’s CASTING DISRECTOR!  Holy CRAP!!!!

I about fell off my, well, you know where I’m heading with this.

Do you know who they are?  Here are the fabulous 5 … MARK CUBAN, DAYMOND JOHN, KEVIN O’LEARY, BARBARA CORCORAN, ROBERT HERJAVEC  Click here to learn more about them.

So, not to worry, my lawyer and advisors are aware and have seen what I have.  I am in good hands.  This is really a dream come true for me, even if I do get eaten alive.  I’m confident in my products and my vision.  Deal or no deal, it’ll be all good.  And, who knows, I might not even be chosen to get past this level.  All I know is that life is really great and I need to go write it down!  {I’m a firm believer in the power of the written word}.

Wrote it down, so it’s gotta happen now, RIGHT!!!!!

So what would you ask for from the Sharks for some equity in taradara?  How much $$ for what % equity?  {ie: $50,000 for 25% equity in the company}.

I’d love to hear your thoughts!!!!  ;)

  4. Hey you !!! So excited for you! I think studying the components of the previous deals they were hungry for is wise as I know you have. I think they look at hard sales first and then realistic projection and potential for future sales and market growth as it all comes down to money. Will partnering with you help them get a good return on their $$. You defibsteky need to know what your clear ideas are in stating what you want from them and how you would use their money and more than that – why your products when there are plenty of products out there all be it different from yours? What sets you apart in the product competition? What edge do you have that others don’t ? And be your wonderful warm self but loving and caring and firm and confident. If you don’t believe in what you have – no one else can: :-). If uou sre lucky to get pocked gor the show – remember its television They are going to stir your pot!!You know I have your back!!!

  8. Very exciting. We just started watching this show in our house and we love it. It seems they always tell the business owners that they place too high a value on their businesses, so be careful there!

    Let us know what happens – we’ll keep our fingers crossed for you!

    You are going to be AWESOME! I’ve mulled over those numbers too, I have no idea. I think you have to figure out how much you think your company is worth and then go from there (obviously). EEK!!! I probably wouldn’t have any problem giving more of a percentage away simply because they have such amazing contacts and can get things rolling so quickly. That’s worth a lot. You want it to be worth it for them to work hard on your behalf too. Let me know if you need ANYTHING at all!
