Behind-the-scenes interviews with ‘Shark Tank’ entrepreneurs

Tweet One aspect of my AfterShark coverage for the second season of Shark Tank was to catch the entrepreneurs as they prepared to enter the Tank or just after they left. Not so easy. Still, it’s leagues easier to be face-to-face than it is to conduct interviews by Skype, as I had to do during […]

Barbara Corcoran of ‘Shark Tank’: Pitch your ideas to your enemies

Tweet Those with an inattention to detail might think that Barbara Corcoran and I are related, but there’s no mistaking the fact that I love her.

Jeff Foxworthy’s secret connection to fellow ‘Shark Tank’ tycoon Robert Herjavec

Tweet This season on Shark Tank, two new men join the lineup of Sharks: Mark Cuban and Jeff Foxworthy, both of whom rotate in Kevin Harrington’s chair when he’s not there.
