Jason Hanson of Spy Escape answers THE QUESTION

I spoke with Jason Hanson, the former CIA Agent turned entrepreneur who successfully partnered with Daymond John on Shark Tank. He was looking for an investment in his Spy Escape and Evasion courses and Daymond liked him.

We spoke about his Shark Tank appearance, Daymond, life in the CIA, his past entrepreneurial successes, and his upcoming courses all over the USA.

I also asked him THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

His answer: "ABSOLUTELY!"

He might need some evasion techniques when he teaches a course in Chicago next month; if he even mentions ketchup on a hot dog out there, he might be in for trouble!

Dorene Humason, The Chef in Black, answers THE QUESTION

I spoke with Dorene Humason today. She's the owner of The Chef in Black which makes California Asian Fusion Salad Dressings. Dorene appeared on season one of Shark Tank; her episode re-runs on #SharkTankTuesdays on CNBC Tuesday, June 3. It's the first time her segment aired since 2010!

We caught up on her progress with her business and what really happened after the show. I asked about her dressing, her business growth, the Japanese prostitute on her initial packaging, and what being a Shark Tank "pioneer" was really like.

I also asked her THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

Her answer:

"No. I do not. I like mustard, but I'm really a Chicago dog kind of gal. I also like that Slawsa Julie sent me."

Obviously 25 years in the food business made Dorene's palette sophisticated and mature! I wonder how her dressing would taste on a hot dog?

Jayla Siciliano of Bon Affair answers THE QUESTION

I recently spoke with Jayla Siciliano (left) who pitches her chic and sophisticated wine spritzer line, Bon Affair, on Shark Tank's May 9, 2013 episode. Jayla left the corporate world after 11 years to start her business and is very excited for her appearance.

We talked about building a business, Mr. Wonderful, getting on Shark Tank, our favorite drinks, and the challenges of building distribution for an alcohol product.

I also asked her THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

Her answer:

"I haven't had a hot dog since I was six. I'm a hamburger gal, and yes, I put ketchup on my hamburgers!"

Well Jayla, there's no accounting for taste, but ketchup on a hamburger is TOTALLY acceptable (even encouraged)! It's probably for the best, Syrah goes good with burgers!
