The Style Club on Shark Tank

Unique Clothing Designs - Episode 808 - November 4, 2016
Unique Clothing Designs online

The Style Club is coming to the Shark Tank in Episode 808 with unique clothing designs inspired by celebrities, fashion gurus, and popular social media bloggers within the industry. More specifically, The Style Club focuses on unique fashion designs and trends spreading like wild-fire when it comes to social media.

The entrepreneur bringing The Style Club to the Shark Tank is Hilary Novelle, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Hilary started The Style Club in 2012 after becoming a designer for Levis Jeans. What sets this business model apart from most clothing brands seen on the Shark Tank, is Novelle built the entire online company using free social media sites. The Style Clubs best known for limited edition collections and flash sales that sell out within a few minutes time.

In addition to finding up-and-coming new designers online, Hilary collaborates with a few celebrities also having a passion for designing. The first major celebrity starlet to design for The Style Club is Gene Simmons (from KISS) daughter, Sophie Tweed Simmons.

Social Media might have put the Style Club on the map, but it's also getting attention from Urban Outfitters at the same time. You can now buy limited edition Style Club collections directly from Urban Outfitters both on and off line.

Interestingly, The Style Club just announced another clothing collection that will soon be available in Nordstom Stores. But for some reason it's being held back until after the company appears on the Shark Tank next week. If I didn't know any better, it certainly smells like a Shark might already be involved with this successful online businesses.

Watch The Style Club on a brand new Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 808, November 4, 2016, and see if the Sharks (Daymond John?) invest in the hottest fashion trends going viral on social media.

#BeSomeBody on Shark Tank

BeSomeBody App - Episode 808 - November 4, 2016
Motivational App
BeSomeBody Appearing on
Shark Tank Episode 808
 The BeSomeBody App founder Kash Shaikh is appearing on the Shark Tank in Episode 808 with an inspirational message to "Be Somebody" and join the fastest growing Motivational Movement in the World. It's not just about motivation, but stepping out of your comfort-zone and fulfilling your passion trying something new.

Kash Shaikh refers to the #BeSomeBody movement as the "Worlds First Experience Marketplace within a Passion Economy." It's a little confusing trying to figure out the entire business model prior to seeing Shaikh on the Shark Tank, but hopefully it will be explained in detail during the Show. Aside from giving motivational speeches to get out there and "Be Somebody", Kash also invented a way to turn your passion into a part-time income.

The BeSomeBody App has a built-in "Passion Economy" that matches your passions with others interested in learning a new skill and willing to pay for the experience. Maybe your passionate about playing the piano, designing websites or riding dirt bikes? Whatever your passionate about and willing to teach others can now become an additional source of income with the #BeSomebody App.

I was going to include one of BeSomeBody's videos of Kash further explaining how this all works, but unfortunately, that's not going to happen. The Shark Tank is one of the highest ranking Shows entire Family's watch together and his language would not be appropriate for this blog. It's an interesting (almost negative vibe to bring out a positive response) way of getting his motivational messages across.

Watch BeSomeBody on the Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 808 next Friday night, November 4, 2016, and see if the Sharks invest in the Passion Economy Movement.

Eco Flower


Eco Flower on Shark Tank

Wooden Flowers - Episode 808 - November 4, 2016
Wooden Flowers on Episode 808
Eco Flowers seen on Shark Tank Episode 808
 The Eco Flower is appearing on Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 808 with a product that'll last you a lifetime, literally. Compared to traditional flowers that look beautiful for a few days before withering away, the Eco Flowers are made using recycled wood. When the Eco Flowers say's their flowers will last forever, it's not just a tag-line to sell more product.

The energetic entrepreneur bringing Eco Flowers to the Shark Tank is Megan Bowman from West Haven, Utah. Megan's no stranger when it comes to starting businesses and living an entrepreneurs lifestyle going all the way back to High School. After selling real flowers out of the gymnasium, this soon-to-be Shark Tank Star then started one of the world's first pole dancing fitness classes in 2005 called French Kiss Fitness. After eight successful year's teaching customers the art of pole dancing, Megan sold French Kiss Fitness in 2013.

In 2014, Bowman went back to her original entrepreneurial roots selling flowers again, but this time selling Forever Eco Flowers made with recycled wood. The unfinished wood flowers get made overseas and then shipped to the Eco Flower's warehouse for painting, decorating and scenting.

The first year in business Eco Flowers did $8,000.00 in total sales. That's not exactly impressive numbers, especially for a new Shark Tank product. But Megan was just getting started building a brand she envisioned would someday compete with the largest flower shops in the world. In the second year of business (last year) Eco Flowers sold over $1.3 million in Forever Wood Flowers. That's an average over $3500.00 per day, every day of the week for the entire year.

How's business growth for Eco Flowers so far in 2016? Whatever the projections were for the year, they've more than doubled that number after finding out Eco Flowers is now an Official Shark Tank Product.

Watch Eco Flower on the next Brand New Shark Tank Show in Episode 808, November 4, 2016, and see "How much" the Sharks invest in the flowers that last a lifetime. Considering all six Sharks including Mark Cuban, Robert Herjevic, Kevin O'Leary, Daymond John, Lori Grenier and Barbara Corcoran, will all have the opportunity to invest in this fast growing business, the odds look excellent Megan will get a deal during the Show.

Safe Catch


Safe Catch Tuna on Shark Tank

Healthy Tuna in a Can - Episode 808 - November 4, 2016

Safe Catch Tuna Co. appearing on Shark Tank Episode 808
 The Safe Catch Tuna Company's coming to the Shark Tank Season 8 in Episode 808 with a tasty treat all Sharks automatically love. What makes the Safe Catch the healthiest and safest tuna sold in a can is that all fish get tested for mercury contamination. Sure, all the tuna caught for mass productions tested in limited quantities for mercury in our fish supply that's growing at an alarming rate. But there's only one company that invented a proprietary testing technology to test every single fish used in the Safe Catch Tuna. While most of the tuna on store shelves meet the minimum FDA mercury action limit, The Safe Catch Elite Wild Tuna standards are ten times higher.

Shark Tank Episode 808
The entrepreneurs bringing Safe Catch Tuna on Shark Tank next Friday night in Episode 808 is Bryan Boches and Sean Wittenberg from Sausalito, California. The team first invented their proprietary tuna testing technology for large tuna and seafood companies to help solve the mercury contamination in our food supply. Quickly realizing lot's of tuna company's are more concerned with the bottom line than adding additional costs for a better product, the Safe Catch Tuna Business was born in 2014.

Not only is the fish in Safe Catch tuna tested at the highest levels for mercury contamination, but it's also cooked and canned with no additives or fillers. In fact, there's no water, oil, GMO, or any preservatives added to a can of Safe Catch Tuna. The fish are slow cooked using a small amount of salt before being packaged in a can. I wonder if the Chicken of the Sea Company can say that about their Tuna? Not if it messes with the bottom line which I'm sure all the Shark Tank Investors would agree.

All the Safe Catch Tuna can even be traced back to when and where the fish was caught in the oceans. The company only buys from trusted captains where all the fish are caught from healthy and sustainable tuna supplies.

Watch Safe Catch on a brand new Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 808 next Friday night and see if these two entrepreneurs can catch a Shark using the healthiest tuna on the market.

Sunscreenr on Shark Tank

Sunscreen Saver - Episode 805 - October 28, 2016
Sunscreen Saver UV spectrum
Sunscreenr Sunscreen Protector
 If there was ever a product seen on the Shark Tank Show everyone will want to buy for their Family, then the Sunscreenr appearing in Episode 805 is certainly the "one." The Sunscreenr is a small device with a built-in UV spectrum camera that lets you see the unprotected skin for the first time. Have you ever wondered if you put enough sunscreen or sunblock lotion on, or perhaps not enough in certain areas without realizing your skin's exposed to the sun's harmful UV rays? We'll, with this technological-advanced Sunscreener UV spectrum device you'll never be guessing again.

The inventor of the SunScreenr UV camera is Dave Cohen, a biochemist from Chapel, North Carolina, who'll be demonstrating this remarkable product on the Shark Tank Season 8 in Episode 805 next Friday night, October 28, 2016.

Dave first took his Sunscreenr invention to Kickstarter to prove the concept and successfully raised over $120,000.00 with a $45k goal on June 24, 2016. It appears Sunscreener was also available on Indiegogo at the same time raising an additional $165,000.00 in funding on June 23, 2016. According to both sites, the products still in pre-order stage with the first shipment to the backers hopefully shipping in time for Christmas.

As with almost all technologically advanced products seeking initial funding, the Sunscreenr's running a little behind with the overwhelming success of his crowdfunding campaigns. Now add an appearance on the Shark Tank Show in Episode 805, and Cohen's going to be swamped keeping up with demand for this innovative product.

Is there a Shark Tank Investor already working with Sunscreenr? I sure hope so because this products a Billion Dollar Idea if there was ever one seen on the Shark Tank Show. Every single Family that spends lots of time outside in the Sun is a potential customer. How cool is that having a small device where you can see the UV spectrum on exposed skin? Welcome to the 21st Century!

Watch Sunscreenr on Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 805 and see if the Sharks invest in this revolutionary new product when it comes to protecting yourself from the Suns harmful UV rays.

Pre-Order the Sunscreenr (Currently forwards to Indiegogo Campaign taking pre-orders)



Unpack on Shark Tank

Suitcase Shopping /Delivery - Episode 805 - October 28, 2016

suitcase package delivery
 The Unpack is coming to the Shark Tank Show in Episode 805 with a suitcase packing service like nothing you've seen before. Imagine going on vacation, but don't feel like packing and lugging around a suitcase during your trip. You just want to jump on an airplane, go to the Hotel and have everything waiting for you when you arrive.

When I say UnPack packs everything, I mean they supply anything you will need depending on the destination and your clothing style. I'm talking a brand new wardrobe decked-out with a pair of Nike Jordan just sitting there waiting in your Hotel Room. Any suitcase related item you can imagine (and pay for) will be packed into a suitcase for you to Un-Pack when you arrive.

The entrepreneurs bringing The UnPack packing service to the Shark Tank Season 8, Episode 805 is Aaron Liskov and Andrew Zahornacky. Before the UnPack service goes shopping for your vacation, they'll need to know all about your body style and clothing style preferences first.

The sign-up process for Unpack is like an online checklist covering your entire body so be sure to measure your neck size first. Another question is, "What is your button size?" My button size?  Hmm, I never measured the size of my button before.

Unfortunately, there's no way to determine how much The UnPack suitcase packaging services costs without creating an account (including the checklist) on the website. Just thinking about the logistical nightmare getting the suitcases to the right destination on time (let alone going shopping for you first) would add considerable cost using this service. But Hey, if money were no object, it sure would make any vacation that much more memorable.

Watch The UnPack on Shark Tank Episode 805 next Friday night, October 21, 2016, and see if the Sharks invest in the suitcase packing business.

Lulu Bang

Joyce's Lulu Bang Sauce - Episode 805 - October 21, 2016
Lulu Bang BBQ Sauce

 With a name like Lulu Bang soon-to-be a Shark Tank product in Episode 805, Joyce's Soulful Cuisine must have lots of Seasoning Bang in their sauce's. According to everyone (and yes I do mean everyone), the Award Winning Joyce's Lulu Bang Sauces is one of the best on the market.

The entrepreneurs representing Joyce's Lulu Bang Sauces on this Episode of the Shark Tank is sisters, Jorrae, Ashley and Kelly Beard from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The name "Joyce's Soulful Cuisine" is a successful restaurant and catering service named in memory of their mother Joyce, the original creator of the Lulu Bang sauces. The four types of sauces include Joyce's Original Lulu Bang BBQ, Asian Persuasion, Bourbon Marinade and It's Just Hot Sauces. All the products are in high-demand at Joyce's Soulful Cuisine, and soon at your local grocery store if it's not sold there already.

Several contestants come into the Shark Tank looking for the Sharks help getting their products on store shelves like Wal-Mart, Target, and even QVC. In Joyce's Lulu Bang's case, the products already available in so many Walmart Stores I didn't bother to count. If you live in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey or Maryland to name a few, then chances are you'll already find the Lulu Bang Sauces on the shelves. In fact, it looks like at least a dozen new States will be selling these products soon. Unfortunately, Arizona isn't one of them. We'll; there goes that review. "Just Kidding."

How much does a jar of Lulu Bang Sauce cost? And can you buy any of the sauces with a "Bang" online?

Surprisingly, (compared most other Shark Tank products) all the Lulu Bang Sauces retail for $7.99 each including Free Shipping if bought online. Wow, you can't even send a Potato Postcard in the mail (also seen in this Episode 805) for that price.

 If I didn't know any better, I'd say this entire deal smells a little fishy like there's already a Shark (or two) swimming around in Lulu Bang's pond. I guess we'll have to wait until next Friday night to find out for sure.

Watch Joyce's Lulu Bang on Shark Tank Episode 805, October 28, 2016, and see if the Sharks get a bang for their buck investing in this Sauce Brand that's going Nationwide, FAST!

Potato Parcel

Potato Postcards - Episode 805 - October 28, 2016

Potato Postcards sent in the mail
Anonymously Send A
Potato Parcel in the Mail
 The Potato Parcel is appearing on Shark Tank Episode 805 with the craziest idea ever seen on the Show. What is the Potato Parcel Postcard? And how did such a product get on the Shark Tank Show? The Potato Parcel Business is "exactly" what the name imply s. Instead of sending someone a traditional postcard, you can now send them a potato in the mail instead.

The entrepreneur behind the Potato Parcel is Alex Craig, who''ll be appearing on the next Shark Tank in Episode 805 with Riad Gekhit, October 28, 2016. The idea is simple, but with margins over 1000% profit, the Sharks will certainly be impressed. In lots of ways, the Potato Parcel business model reminds me of "I Want To Draw A Cat For You" seen in Season 3. It was such a simple (and profitable) concept Mark Cuban invested in the business. But a potato already starting to rot when your recipient receives it in the mail? Who would possibly spend hard earned money on that? You might be very surprised.

Alex launched his potato-in-the-mail idea online in May 2015, starting with a post on Reddit that soon went viral. On the second day in business, Craig sold over $2,000.00 of his potato's for only $9.95 each (plus shipping). The company is now averaging (Before their Shark Tank appearance) between $10 to $20,000.00 per month in online orders.

What makes these potato's the most valuable on the planet?  First off, you can send them anonymously to anyone with a personal message up to 130 characters long. Alex claims it took hours of R n D (Research and Development) finding the perfect instrument for writing notes on a potato. He ultimately chose the G2 Pens available on Amazon for a buck apiece.

A single G2 pen (the most expensive tool to create this soon-to-be Shark Tank product) can easily produce over 100 Potato Parcels or $1000.00 in revenue. Those are fantastic margins in anyone's book, but what about the labor costs usually being the biggest expense? The Potato Parcel has also mastered this technique averaging only 30-seconds per order to complete. What's not to like about this business model?

Interestingly, it looks like Alex Craig auditioned for the Shark Tank four total times before getting on this Episode 805 in Season 8. Considering Potato Parcels been in business since May 2015, He's apparently taken a few other business ideas to the auditions before this appearance. If that is indeed the case, "Congratulations Alex for Never Giving Up On Your Dream." But selling rotting potato's in the mail? I guess you never know until you try.

Watch Potato Parcel on the brand new Shark Tank Episode 806 next Friday night, October 28, 2016, and see if the Sharks invest in this rather unusual, but extremely profitable online business. If I had to guess, I'd say Kevin O'Leary will add up the costs to start a competing company when valuing this business. In this case, it would cost less than $20 bucks and lots of viral traction. Good Luck Kevin!
