Before heading into the tank, we spent months going over our numbers, learning everything about every aspect of our operations and doing weekly run-throughs to prepare for the pitch.
With a replay of the special veterans episode of Shark Tank airing this Friday, 6/2, at 9 pm ET/PT on ABC, we decided to share a few of the biggest lessons we've learned since being on the show.
"Be thankful. Be humble. Say, “Thank you” to everybody that helped get you there. Know that you’re going to work harder than ever."
"Murphy's Law: Whatever can happen, will happen. So when the unexpected hits, just continue to do your best––and take the hose like a champ."
"Not everyone will like what you do, and that's okay. Be helpful, be funny, be nice, but always stand up for what you believe in."
"Don't spill beer on your laptop 5 minutes before your episode airs."*
*yes, that really happened.
