Hot Tot Haircare Update – The Stunning Megan Gage – Season 4 Episode 12

Follow Your Heart, That’s What Megan Does!

Hot Tot Hair Care was still in its infancy when Megan Gage entered the Shark Tank.  Megan was determined to first and foremost “Do No Harm” when she went on the tank, but was concerned that she would embarrass her brand, her family, and all those that believed in her and had encouraged her to pursue this dream.

Megan’s favorite quote:  “Make passion your master, allow possibility to feed your soul”

Megan shares some fascinating details regarding the growth of Hot Tot and the amazing things that are happening in her life and business as a result of partnering with Mark Cuban.  She also shares very helpful advice for anyone looking to go on Shark Tank OR starting out in the business world.

In this episode you will hear:

  • Why did Megan spend so many years training as a career in social work only to switch to child hair care products?
  • When people stop and take notice of what you do, that’s a light-bulb moment.
  • Why none of the Big Box stores that called her about Hot Tot after the show were not a fit
  • Why American Crew is a great business role model for  Hot Tot & the potential in the market
  • Why Megan stood up for Mr. Wonderful and disagreed with Lori in the tank
  • Why Hot Tot smells like a cabbage patch doll
  • Megan’s primary objective was to do no harm
  • Why it pays (literally) to bring a kid with you on set
  • Plus a whole lot more…

The Shark Tank Effect:

  • Megan has blown up over the last year and has a huge update coming in season 5 for Hot Tot
  • More sales in the first month from Shark Tank than in their entire history prior
  • First professional kids hair care line to be involved heavily in the fashion industry

Shark Wisdom (Takeaways)

  • Everyone wants to be CEO of someone else’s company – TRUST YOUR GUT
  • Follow your heart – that’s what Megan does
  • Pick your horse and ride it out.  Megan really struggled with the direction she wanted to take once the offers started coming in
