Kevin O’Leary steps Behind The Rope. Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful! Let us start at the beginning. Kevin talks about how he initially became involved with Reality TV SuperGuru Mark Burnett and how Shark Tank found its way into our lives all those years ago. Kevin talks about being the King of Mean, Shark Tank’s Simon Cowell, or, in other words, just brutally honest about the potential entrepreneurs’ likelihood of success. Of course we pay homage to Mr. Wonderful’s epic catch phrases about being crushed like cockroaches, taken out behind the barn and shot, your dead to me (a personal fav) and of course, how all roads lead back to Mr. Wonderful! On a more serious note, we chat the biggest deal in Shark Tank History - it was Kevin’s, his best and worst deal based on ROI, the ones that got away and if there are ever any products in the tank that go on to success of massive proportions that he just doesn't understand. Tipsy Elves, Scrub Daddy, Squatty Potty - we are looking at you. Of course we also discuss Mr. Wonderful’s colleagues on Shark Tank - Barbara Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, and Damon John as well as guest judges Alex Rodriguez and last, but certainly not least, our very own Skinny Girl Mogul, Ms. Bethenny Frankel. We break down many of the analytics behind the scenes like how many deals don’t close once filming is over, who makes the most deals, and who does Kevin lose most deals to. While we have one of the most brilliant business minds with us, we discussed what qualities make for a good entrepreneur, what is the biggest misconception amongst entrepreneurs, the 24/7 work ethic required, the biggest mistakes most business owners make and just how important is the person versus the product. We discuss the one thing Mr. Wonderful loves the most. M-O-N-E-Y - what it stands for, why he loves it so much, and why are most people shy about saying, “ I love Money”!!! We sure do! Finally, we break down what being a public figure is like - red carpets, celeb run ins, people running down the street screaming “Mr. Wonderful” and what an amazing byproduct that is all from a little show which has turned into an international global blockbuster of a sensation, Shark Tank!!!
