I just wanted to congratulate a fellow Lumberjock, Kiersten, for being on the TV show, Shark Tank, last night. My family and I were watching the show last night and all of a sudden an attractive lady walks out with a construction tool belt on to present her proposition to the sharks. I didn’t recognize her immediately but then they showed some pictures of her furniture and mentioned the name of her furniture, Mod Mom Furniture and it hit me. I got up and hollered “I know that lady – she’s a Lumberjock – I can’t believe it. She’s a Lumberjock.” She did a wonderful job with her presentation and they all complimented her for doing a great presentation. Not all of them were interested in investing in her company but if I’m not mistaken one or two of them did invest.
I think that it is a great thing that a fellow Lumberjock did this and I just wanted to congratulate her and wish her all the best in the world for her company and the future success of her furniture designs. So Kiersten, congratulations, and all the best to your future business.
The reason that our family happened to be watching was that my daughter and son in law are working on an invention that is a pretty good idea and they are all excited and were trying to figure out how to market it and I told them that they ought to watch Shark Tank for a few weeks and that they might get some ideas and, in fact, might even want to get onto the show when the time is right. They enjoyed the show and couldn’t believe that a fellow Lumberjock was on. The whole family thought that Kiersten did great.
BTW, I don’t really know Kiersten – I just know of her and have read her profile and seen some posts of hers and know of her furniture. Anyways, I love all the Lumberjocks and like for good things to happen to them so that show, The Shark Tank, made me happy last night.
