Shark Tank Approved

 

Ann GMA Board

Producer Taylor Dunn invited me to ABC studios  to give a short one-minute pitch about my technology consulting business to Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec from Shark Tank. This was part of a Good Morning America segment about communicating the value of what you do– ostensibly to get a raise.  I was delighted to get an enthusiastic two thumbs up from the sharks and (a third thumb up) from tech correspondent Rebecca Jarvis (of the No Limits podcast).

Better yet, during the time on set between multiple takes I learned from Barbara that she has a 3D printer in her office and has no idea what to do with it.  “I’ve got you- Tell me one important problem about high-end real estate and I’ll show you how to use your printer to help solve it.  This is what I do. It’ll be fun!”
