cool. I watched it on friday night and the one product they liked but did not give any money to was an “extreme pogo stick”. They liked the fact that it stood out from other pogo stick’s and thought it should not be made into a mass marketed product.
I hope that does happen with you, your stuff looks really cool.
Actually you can tell us if they gave you money cant you? lol

I wasn’t familiar with the format and looked a way at the wrong tiime. I thought it was going to be a contest where the best presenter won at the end. What kind of deal did you take?

Congratulations. Glad to see that you didn’t pay the royalty upfront. It would have killed your cash flow and forced you to sell him more equity. You definitely chose the right deal.

Thanks everyone!! Check out http://www.modmomfurniture.blogspot.com for what happened AFTER the Tank.

Also, I have been partners with my Amish manufacturer for a few months now and it’s fantastic! I was already partnering with him when I filmed Shark Tank (read about that on my blog). I’m running the business and going back to all those retailers and other high-end modern retailers in the US and Canada and letting them know I can finally get them product! For me, thankfully, I’m now out of the actual building of everything and letting Ray and his team handle everything from the construction standpoint. They’re amazing—Amish heirloom construction, ability to build 100s per day, eco-friendly materials, and still made in the USA!! Can’t get better than that! And I still get to design everything the way I normally do—- which is by actually building the prototypes myself.

Thanks for all your support!! What an incredible ride!!!
