Many have seen that 'Shark Tank' show aired on ABC, a show about entrepreneurs who get a chance to pitch their idea to a panel of investors to get funds for their small company.
Well, Shelly Ehler, a resident of Ladera Ranch is going to be on the show airing February 10th, and has had to keep the secret for a long time ( since the show was taped before due to confidentiality legalities). Ehler designed and produces a poncho-style beach towel that is currently under the name ShowNo.
Only 52 entrepreneurs were selected from 24,000 applicants nationwide, and they have a chance to convince a panel of five wealthy investors to help fund her home-based company in exchange for different deals from the investors, like company ownership and percentage of sales revenue.
Ehler's story is particularly a 'close to home' one, as her and her husband, as many of Orange County residents, were hit with the recession and were forced to sell their house.
Here's a clip of the story.
