    How many seconds would it take after explaining your taxidermy business finances and then asking for money for a share of your business before all the sharks started laughing and you escorted off the set?

    Actually I suspect they would keep you there for awhile out of curiosity just to learn more about the taxidermy business then tell you to hit the road! Doubt it will ever go on the air.

    50 k for 50% of my business! Typical taxidermist: "I gross 125 k a year and net 8 k if I do not pay myself". Ha ha. Your right they wouldn't even let you try.
     
  5. Their rates are robbery. Anyone with anything on the ball would never ask for their help. I and my buddy have watched it several times. We lol at the idiots with great ideas but zero marketing skills..

    They would say " we would have to be the dumbest people on earth to invest in this business". Kevin would have
    a hayday ripping apart this business.

    It's a bad example because taxidermy isn't really an invest-able business. That being said, I agree most taxidermists wouldn't even know where to begin in putting together the proposal.

    Agree with Cole, it's apples and oranges. nearly all the businesses that are invested into by those kind of people are retail, selling some kind of product. There are very few if any service businesses that they would be interested in especially a hands on skilled trade like taxidermy.

    Taxidermy is certainly invest-able Cole!!! It's just a really, really BAD investment - lol! We'd be dead to Kevin! Love the show!!!
