Entrepreneurship is more popular than ever. A significant reason for that happening is the launch of Shark Tank in August of 2009. Nine Seasons later, people who never thought about entrepreneurship suddenly are calling themselves entrepreneurs.
My first blog post about Shark Tank came on the night of the very first episode, and I kept writing more. My blog took off receiving a massive amount of traffic. At that point, I moved the Shark Tank content into a branded blog and brought a partner on to help with the blog. I fully expected that having a partner would make the blog that much better, but it proved to be a massive challenge and burden. That's when I decided to get out of the Shark Tank Blogging.
I've decided to get back into writing about Shark Tank again. My content is unique to most other bloggers because they don't have the experience and the vision that comes with my experience. Instead, I'm moving to showing a different view of entrepreneurship and opportunity. Of course, I'll give you the background to each company and Shark as well.
