Play • 1 hr 13 min

Bing has used his history of movie-making (he produced the movie “The Bachelor, for one”) to transform into physical goods with great success and with an appearance recently on Shark Tank and his amazing chair which you can find on his site On the show today, we have a fun chat about his experience appearing on the show, how he prepared his pitch ahead of time, his conversations with some of the sharks which did not make it on air, and what it’s really like to walk down that hallway and make your presentation.

We also dive into his plans ahead with his chair technology, how he plans to expand his line of chairs to other markets such as gamers, as well as his involvement over the last with, a much-needed organization that matches up people who want to help others affected by the covid crisis with those in need.

You should be keeping your body moving throughout the course of the day. Pretty much every other chair out there, are 3,000-year-old designs. You can go into the British Museum and see this 3,000-year-old chair. It’s the same thing we are sitting on right now.” - Bing Howenstein
