We have received many emails and phone calls from Shark-Tank-hopefuls since our own segment aired on April 27th. I have to say that the folks who reach out to us are three-steps ahead of the game. It never even occurred to me to reach out to Shark Tank Alumni.
Then we heard that a few Shark Tank Alums crashed the Chicago Open Casting Call, and had a great time networking and re-living the whole process.
Please keep in mind that Mark and I are in no way affiliated with Shark Tank, ABC, or any of the casting crew, so what we have to say has zero influence on whether you get on the show or not, BUT we did go through casting and if you want to grab a drink and put your mind at ease before the Casting Call in Los Angeles, we’d be happy to talk with you. We’ll be at the bar (Tula's Lounge) of the hotel where the casting call will be the next morning between 7-9 pm if you want to come out and chat, talk about the stresses of entrepreneurship, etc. We’d love to meet you. We are always happy to talk about our wild ride into the Shark Tank, but please keep in mind that you have to take everything we say with a grain of salt - because we had such a great experience, we can be a bit biased ;)
