I’m addicted to Shark Tank, the venture capital TV show where entrepreneurs present their ideas and ask for investment in exchange for equity. It shows me right way to build a business that a library of business books and hours of courses never did and I actually take detailed notes. . So when I got an email from two entrepreneurs who were scheduled to appear on Shark Tank last week, I was thrilled. Abby and Liz are two friends who created a unique lip balm with the catchy name of Balm Chicky Balm Balm. While it feels wonderful, what sets Balm Chicky Balm Balm apart is the double end design. One end is for your lips and the other is a little tub that a friend can swipe to share the balm without getting unwanted “cooties”. Liz and Abby asked the “Sharks” for an investment of $75Kfor a 20% equity. They did not get a deal ((I guess the Sharks do not get chapped lips) , but the publicity gave them a big and well deserved surge in sales. Its a wonderful product and it was fun to feel like I had a realtime connection to the show.
