In mid-February, 2013 Steven Sashen and his wife and partner, Lena, of Xero Shoes were featured on an episode of ABC-TV’s Shark Tank, a reality-business show. As usual, my wife & I were watching, live Tweeting about the action and doing a bit of promotion about my blog entry “How Would You Do In The Shark Tank?“. In early May, while live Tweeting another episode, Steven reached out to me. We tweeted back and forth and he agreed to an interview.
Here’s Part 2, in which we talk more about their appearance on Shark Tank, the impact the show had on their business, the importance of “owning” all aspects of your business, the state of banking, crowdfunding, philanthropy, and more. Folks: The content in this interview is extremely valuable for anyone running an SBE… thinking about running an SBE… or, for that matter, if you’re just “thinking!” Let me know if you thought this interview had more value than a typical webinar, I think it does:
Again, I’d like to thank Steven for taking the time to talk with me, and until next time,
I am… the SBE Lifer. Are you?
