5 Lessons Every Entrepreneur Can Learn From Shark Tank

Marketing Strategy
The television show Shark Tank has become something of a phenomenon, especially with the entrepreneurial set.

Most of the so-called social media experts that are selling products to small business owners are clueless, but they can sound like they know what they're talking about to an uninformed business owner who doesn't know the difference... that is, until said business owner has a conversation with me. I'm always debunking something! Why is this a…
