ENTERPRENEUR: April Morris
PITCH: Thin Gloss, an aromatic lip gloss that helps curb your appetite
ASKING FOR: $80k for a 20% stake
BEST PART OF THE PITCH: April discovered an herb from South Africa that has been known to fool your brain into believing your stomach is full. There are other aromas that, when inhaled, help enhance your energy and boost your mood. She combined these ingredients into Thin Gloss. She had $26,000 in sales last year and hopes to break a million this year, as she has a contract with one of the largest cosmetic distributors in India.
DO THE SHARKS BITE? Robert doesn't believe a lip gloss that's promoting weight loss would be a huge seller in a poor country like India. Kevin O. worries about ticking off the government with weight loss claims, so he's out. Barbara, Kevin H. and Daymond feel the same. They're out, too. Robert simply doesn't believe the company can grow at the rate April thinks it will and he's out. April thanks the sharks for their consideration and plans to prove them wrong a year from now. That's not just lip service. That's confidence. You go, April!
