Ep. 27 | Shark Tank After-Action-Report

In this episode, Phil Black analyzes, Shark by Shark, exactly what went down during his segment last night. Hear what it takes to get on Shark Tank, how long it takes, and how to improve your chances. Hear what Phil thinks about what it means to be invited back a 3rd time.

Show Notes:

In today’s episode, I break down the process of getting onto Shark Tank, how long it takes, and the odds of your segment actually getting on air. Then, I walk you through what each of the Sharks said during my segment and how to think about their feedback. I then opine on whether or not it’s a smart idea to skip taking the SAT or ACT now that the UC schools are no longer requiring it.
