  1. She also approached them unprofessionally – instead of listening to their questions and answering respectfully, she was interrupting and rudely shaking them down for money. I wonder if that was part of their lack of interest. You’ll always catch more flies with honey.

    • Agreed! Not to mention, she acted like she knew everything (people like that aren’t teachable), and she talked over all of the sharks the entire time.

  2. Seems to me like she was traumatized by her breastfeeding experience and HAD to come up with this business.
