Sticky Ties Founders answer THE QUESTION

I interviewed Becca Nelson and Ellie Brown recently. They're the founders of evREwares and the creators of Sticky Ties (that's Becca on the far left and Ellie in the middle). The two sisters appear in Shark Tank episode 607 on Tuesday, January 13, 2015.

While interviewing them for Shark Tank Blog, we talked about everything from their childhoods, licensing products, Robert Herjavec's eyes, and how their business got started.

I also asked both of them THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

Their answers:

Becca: "I prefer mustard and chili with onions."

Ellie: "I don't even like hot dogs. I never even liked them as a child."

It appears these two sisters pass the test. Becca has it DOWN. Ellie's saving grace is you can't put ketchup on a hot dog unless you actually eat one!

Neal Hoffman answers THE QUESTION

I spoke with Neal Hoffman prior to his appearance on the Shark Tank Holiday Special. He's the guy behind Mensch on a Bench, the Jewish answer to Elf on a Shelf. He's a former Hasbro marketing guy who created a product to put more "Funukkah" into Hanukkah.

We talked about life in Cincinnati, life at Hasbro, how he got on Shark Tank, and how he developed Mensch on a Bench.

I also asked him THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

His reply:

"Yes, but only on Kosher hot dogs."

OY VEY! I think Neal's a bit meshuggener on this one: EVERYONE knows ketchup on a hot dog ISN'T Kosher!!!

Storm Stoppers John Smith answers THE QUESTION


I recently spoke with John Smith, owner and inventor of Storm Stoppers, for a Shark Tank Blog interview. John's been trying to get on the show for three seasons and he made it onto the 100th show, episode 610.

We talked about his Shark Tank experience, his business, and his hopes for the future.

I had one very special question for him:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

His answer:

"I don't even know what ketchup is! As a Chicagoan, a true dog should be dragged through garden."

John and I will be collaborating on a NEW product: KETCHUP STOPPERS!
