Watch and Learn with Shark Tank (audiobook & TV show)

Have you thought about starting your own business? 

Are you a fan of the ABC television show, Shark Tank? 

Then the posts for the next couple of days will likely be of interest to you. Shark Tank Jump Start Your Business: How to Launch and Grow a Business from Concept to Cash is free via Audible for - I don't know how long. That's right free, $0.00.

So thought that I would take the opportunity to listen to the audiobook and watch a few episodes.

I clearly haven't watched the show in a while because they are on season five. I have missed a few episodes, give or take a season. LOL!  

I'm inviting you to join me.

Download a copy and pull up a chair.

Let's start tomorrow with season five, episode 20 where a 16-year-old wants to help save the bees with his spicy raw honey.
