What do the Shark Tank Investors say about Liquid Money?
Mark Cuban thinks Pat broke a cardinal rule because he started off with billions and you only are going after a fraction; you are a wantrepreneur, not an entrepreneur. He is out.
Daymond John believes this business is done solely on advertising. Daymond wants to know why he would offer only 5%. He likes the idea of a license, and he will give him the $125,000 for 80% equity. Mark Cuban says Daymond is offering to put himself at work and pay you to do it.
Kevin O'Leary says the only thing of value is you've got the name “Money” in the fragrance category, but everything else insane. He loves money, and money loves him. It breaks his heart to tell Pat he is out.
Barbara Corcoran gets $500 out of the cash machine and smells the money because she loves the smell. But, Pat's product doesn't smell like money. She is out even though Pat looks like Robert Redford.
Robert Herjavec doesn't smell the money with the strategy he has today; he is out.
