Shark Tank season 7 episode 10 introduces an entrepreneur who uses a unique labor force to create her product, the sharks go on a crazy ride when a college student brings a grown-up version of a favorite childhood toy, and beauty industry experts bring innovations from the secret epicenter of beauty. Also, an update on Happy Feet that Robert Herjavec invested in during Season 5.
Season 7 Episode 10 in depth
In season 7 episode 10, there is no guest judge.
He gave the example of a plumber sending an invoice, and how they can tell if someone starts to create an invoice and can’t make it through the whole process. For a small business entrepreneur, “that’s a big deal because that means they’re not going to get paid, which means that tuition payment for their kid in college may be in jeopardy. So we take that really, really seriously.”
If you can’t come clean and tell investors how and why you failed, that raises a red flag. They need to see that you learned from it and came back stronger.Daymond John
