Into the Shark Tank
On ABC's Shark Tank, hopeful inventors and entrepreneurs petition a panel of angel investors who are arguably the toughest sell in the business.  Many face unapologetic rejection from the likes of Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, and the "Queen of QVC," Lori Greiner. However, a select few of the contestants survive the encounter and are then snatched up by one of the four investors who in turn invests their own capital in the product.  Today we're joined by local 
entrepreneurs who've swam with the sharks on the hit ABC show and lived to tell the tale.  Tune in for a conversation about their eye opening experiences on Shark Tank and the harrowing challenges of taking that "big idea" to market.

Your Second Act

There was a time when retirement was seen as the end of a successful career and the start of a new chapter in life filled with travel, leisure and personal discovery.  But now tens of millions of baby boomers are leaving retirement behind and setting out to make their mark, or a little extra cash, by starting an "encore career."  We'll talk with two local residents who have bucked the retirement trend and taken the plunge into new and fulfilling careers as they begin their "second act."
