The Shark Tank experience is one like no other. All too often we see unprepared entrepreneurs and small business owners enter the Tank, only to walk out empty-handed and completely frustrated. If you are planning on entering the Shark Tank, make sure you take the time first to view the first slideshow in Season 5 of Shark Tank, exclusively by Blog Shark Tank (blogsharktank.blogspot.com). Know everything there is to know before standing in front of the Sharks - Mark Cuban, Kevin O'Leary, Robert Herjavec, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, and Daymond John. This is the Shark Tank. There is nothing like it on Earth.
