“When good people come together for a noble cause , great things happen.” –Johnny Georges, Tree T-Pee Founder
Who says business is cold and cruel? In fact, I would argue that great businesses are not cruel at all. The great businesses Serve. And they Serve Well.
In the world of free markets, some have said that money or profits is merely a by-product of the work that is produced. In other words, the more people that are served, the greater the profits.
The premise of Shark Tank is that business owners and entrepeneurs pitch their idea or business to a panel of sharks. The sharks invest their own money in exchange for a piece of the business.
The “sharks” often find weaknesses and faults in an entrepreneur’s concept, product, or business model. Some of the shark investors such ass Kevin O’Leary, can be brutal and show no patience even for tales of hardship.
In this episode watch Johnny Georges pitch his business to the Sharks. It shows that doing business for a just cause can be profitable.The Tree T Pee is a water containment system that saves water, protects trees from frost and grows stronger trees.
The Shark that partnered with Johnny is John Paul DeJoria, who just came to Shark Tank as a guest Shark.
