    I watched this episode of Shark Tank.  Found it odd that the duo kept stressing they had connections in Maine, and these lobster suppliers didn’t deal with folks who weren’t from Maine.  I work for a lobster supplier, and we don’t have any prejudice against folks who are not from Maine-if we can fill their orders we will take them on as clients.

    Where is the link to their website ?  Oh yeah I live in Maine and don’t need it but I bet there are out-of-staters that read BDN and would find it useful. I remember it was like a big secret who their suppliers were and they had the only connection to Maine lobsters it was kind of amusing to me at the time. Barbara Corcoran must have come up with the internet idea because I know that was not mentioned on the Shark Tank and I know she is wealthy from internet based businesses and sales. After all this is Maine and there are a lot of lobster men and suppliers.  I hope it is true that they have hired Maine people for work but it is more likely they get their lobsters from a company already in business for internet sales and mail orders. Best of luck to them and all entrepreneurs in the future.

        Posturing for the next one is already happening. 
        The upcoming Obama tax increase will put these guys out of business.  He already says he refuses to compromise.

          people really ought to find out what is going to happen when a tax increase takes place. most people have not a clue how it works for businesses and taxes. and the amount of tax increase is not what is floating in the mind of the sour grapes. take a class on business and taxes and you will find that businesses pay very little taxes if any. and the only reason a business goes out of business is if they mismanage that business. its not on count of taxes.

            Newspapers and CNBC are showing thousands of companies that have already begun to layoff workers for both obama care and obama tax increases.

          • Anonymous

            I’m sorry I believe that the companies doing the laying off is still about something else besides Obama care and tax increases. There was a man on CNBC back in October saying he was going to hand out pink slips if Obama got reelected. Yesterday he was back on CNBC and they asked if he had handed out the pink slips yet and he said he changed his mind. He also stated that his company was prospering. And revenue for his company has been the best it had been in 2012 then in the past 12 years. So this laying off for Obama care and  tax hikes is just sour grapes and scare tactics to get their employees to not vote for Obama. You know what, there is nothing that anyone can say to change the minds of people that think less of President Obama, so i guess we ought to stop trying. He won another 4 years and we will see if it works out for America. If it does then WE all will benefit from this election decision. And if it doesn’t then the Republicans can try to get back in to office and have a try at it again. Instead of working so hard to see that the opposition fails, they need to work hard at seeing the opposition is successful. You got to know that if the Democrats are successful then so aren’t the Republicans and vice versa. When ever success is achieved at any level we are all the beneficiaries.
