What Small Businesses Can Learn From ABC's "Shark Tank"
Source: American Express
Reality television, at its core, is typically about showcasing some type of conflict. Most often that conflict comes from relationships and unrealistic portrayals of "Real people" acting badly, hornily or greedily. Shark Tank is the reality show supposedly about business where entrepreneurs compete to get funding from already wealthy businesspeople (the "Sharks" willing to invest their own money). So far, the show has been pleasantly surprising and educational for any business person or entrepreneur interested in taking their idea to the next stage, including ideas like a "Turbobaster" and a guitar that folds.
