Julie Thompson of PullyPalz answers THE QUESTION

I recently spoke with entrepreneur and inventor Julie Thompson. Julie's pitching her product, PullyPalz, on Shark Tank next week.

She told me all about the trials and tribulations of bringing a product to market, from concept to patents to manufacturing and sales. We spoke about her appearance and how she prepared as well.

I also asked her THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

Her reply:

"Yuck! No, I'm a mustard gal all the way!"

If Julie's taste in hot dog toppings is any indication of success, she'll DEFINITELY land a Shark!

Rick Hinnant of Grace and Lace answers THE QUESTION

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Rick Hinnant of Grace and Lace. He and his wife, Melissa, did a deal with Barbara Corcoran in Shark Tank season five and they went on to BIG success in their show's aftermath. I was interviewing him for an update on the Shark Tank Blog.

We spoke about Rick's football days at the University of Texas, the Grace and Lace "backstory," the company's philanthropic endeavors, Rick's spirituality and how it's at the forefront of Grace and Lace's business model, and a lot more.

I also asked him THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

His answer:

"Yes. And mustard and relish, cheese and chili."

I can only hope God forgives Rick for this particular digression!

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!!!
