I truly love this segment.
It takes place on a level that most viewers can comprehend - a great product that you create yourself at the kitchen table that so far has only seen a tiny dribble of profits, but that has the potential to at least be a source of passive income once all the processes are streamlined.
In the first few moments of the pitch, yes, you are sort of assaulted by frozen "kid-smiles" (like the kind you see stuck on little tap dancers' faces), but after that the two girls definitely relax into it and both they and their dad are admirably up-front about their strengths and weaknesses as a company.
They have amazing margins - like, maybe the best margins that have ever existed in a product ever - and low overhead, plus their product is a truly simple solution to a real-world, day-to-day problem, so it has tremendous appeal. All they really need is help with packaging and getting it into stores. What could be simpler?
It's no surprise they went with Lori, the People's Shark. She'll be able to do the most for these small-time entrepreneurs.
