TDD FYI: Why Shark Tank Is Not Ideal - 05 / 26 / 15


For those that love watching prime time television, you’ve likely seen a show called Shark Tank. If you haven’t, it revolves around the hopes and dreams of individuals as they pitch their ideas to a panel of well-known and often flamboyant entrepreneurs. Every once in a while, there is a success story of someone who pairs with one of those entrepreneurs, and the results can be a life changing experience.

That’s right – there are plenty of scenarios when the sharks lose the hunger that they had on screen and post production results in the entrepreneur not getting the deal they thought they would. There are a ton of different reasons as to why this might happen, but the end result is typically a frustrated and confused entrepreneur.

However, hopeful entrepreneurs should understand that Shark Tank is not the only option for becoming a success. Sure, it’s a good way for you to get on television, which gives excellent exposure for your brand. But if you get find yourself agreeing to unfavorable terms with one of the Sharks, you could be in for a lifetime of regret.

Instead, there are equally as successful companies out there that can provide everything that Shark Tank does. A company like Top Dog Direct has a track record for turning small businesses into big successes. Unlike Shark Tank, working with TDD means that entrepreneurs have less television antics to deal with (i.e. Mr. Wonderful) and genuine one-on-one approach.  No ratings, just straight business talk.

You may be thinking that neither Shark Tank, Top Dog Direct, or any other sort of company is worth it. However, it’s important to keep in mind just how many doors one of these firms can open.

If you have driven a car before, it’s easy to navigate your way through the twists and turns on the road. However, if you’ve never been behind the wheel of a car, then even the slightest road bump may cause for some serious disruptions.

If you have built a business, or even multiple businesses before, then the path ahead of you may not look as daunting. But if you’ve never built a business before, or if you’ve tried to build a business and it failed, then having a helping hand can be the shining light that you need. Top Dog Direct can be that helping hand that assists entrepreneurs in reaching their goals. In fact, Top Dog Direct has seen dozens of their cast off “winners” go on to trade shows and future success.

Because it’s on primetime television, Shark Tank gets a lot of credit as being the guys who find small ideas before they are big businesses. However, it’s important to realize that those sharks are not the only fish in the sea. Instead, there are companies like Top Dog Direct that can unlock doors just as well as those TV personalities. TDD has a proven track record for success, including helping small ideas turn into tangible life-changing businesses. If you want to take your idea from step one to step twelve, contact Top Dog Direct and turn your idea into reality!
