During my recent trip into the Shark Tank, I reconnected with the informercial whiz Kevin Harrington, the resident of the first seat. Rather than pitching him a business, I asked him about what it’s like to get pitched, particularly in this recession.
He must have been pumped up for the day’s meal of entrepreneurs in crisis, because in this interview — which was terrifically hectic because they were re-setting in between business pitches, so bear with the noise the way we had to — he was surprisingly candid about where he’s making his money these days and what types products fill his wallet the most.
I should have asked him where he gets his tans. I want to live there, even if it means days spent golfing.
Here’s a shot with Kevin (and Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec) from a satellite media tour I covered during the first season of Shark Tank.
