Can you provide a little behind the scenes information on what happened after the show?
Barbara Corcoran and her team contacted me right away and were absolutely wonderful! Barbara is a great businesswoman with high integrity! How lucky I was to get her support!
One of the things the sharks mentioned is that they felt that the branding was mixed. Was this something that you adjusted after the show?
Yes, they were right! I have changed my packaging three times since the show (UGH!). I am really happy with the packaging now in which I have kept the branding clean! My sales are taking off because of change. Take a look at the pictures I have attached! It was great advice from the sharks!

If you were to go on the show now, would you do anything differently?
"Shark Tank" was a brand new show and had not even aired yet. I went on the Internet and found anything and everything I could on "The Dragon's Den" so I would be ready. I felt I did as well as I could have under the circumstance. Of course when I watch the show I see where I made some mistakes and would love to take a stab at it again but overall I was happy with the fact that I was very prepared for any question they had for me. I wish a couple more sharks had made me an offer but I loved the experience! I would do it again!
What has been the financial impact of being on "Shark Tank"?
When "Shark Tank" aired I had so much new business I had to hire six new people right away! I am now in Wal-Mart, Kroger's, SaveMart, Lucky's, Raley's, Nugget, etc. We have a really strong support on the West Coast and Northwest! The next step is national! Now that people have realized what a great show "Shark Tank" is, it continues to be a gift for anyone of us whose episode was fortunate to air. People love to hear about my experience, and I love to share it. I am very grateful for being on "Shark Tank" and the opportunities it has given me and my business!
