Tiffany Krumins - Leading Your Business Through Personal Hardships

Lessons From The Tank

In this debut episode of the Lessons From The Tank Podcast, I thought it was only fitting to feature my friend and fellow Shark Tank entrepreneur, Tiffany Krumins. Tiffany was the first guest who made the first deal on Shark Tank's pilot episode when Barbara Corcoran invested in her genius invention, the Ava The Elephant medication dispenser for children. Tiffany is a respected inventor, iHeartRadio host, motivational speaker, entrepreneur, and mother. Her infectious spirit has attracted the attention of media heavy hitters, such as Dr. Oz, Fox Business, Entrepreneur, Forbes, and most recently, the Today Show. She was even touted in The Huffington Post as "a modern-day Mary Poppins." We talked about Tiffany's Shark Tank experience, and she shared some incredibly valuable wisdom and business advice that you won't want to miss. It was an honor and a pleasure to speak with Tiffany on our debut episode, and I believe you'll find great value in our conversation.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lessonsfromthetank/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/lessonsfromthetank/support

Shark Tank Season 1 Winner, Tiffany Krumins on "Life After Shark Tank"

Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning

You can listen to this episode on all podcast channels, or watch the interview here on YouTube. Before I introduce our next guest, I wanted to send out a message to everyone listening today, as we are recording this, it’s Monday March 30th, 2020, and there is a lot of turmoil in the world. We just can’t ignore it and jump into our episode without acknowledging where things are with the impact of the Corona virus on our everyday life. Wherever you are, we hope you and your families are safe, have the food and supplies that you need, and are managing through these difficult times. More than ever, we need strategies for our mental health, and well-being. Together we are stronger, and just want to remind you to stay connected as we all figure out our new normal. Now let’s jump into this next episode,  which just happens to be EPISODE 50 with Shark Tank Season 1 Success Story (that aired back in 2009)[i] Tiffany Krumins, who was awarded $50,000 to fund her invention Ava the Elephant, a medicine dispenser that was inspired by a sweet-natured boy with Down syndrome who struggled to take his medication. As his nanny, Tiffany tried her best to sooth his anxiety. Using her creativity to invent a plastic medicine dropper, and by imbedding a recordable sound chip from a greeting card, Ava the Elephant was born, and is now one of Shark Tank's most well-known and beloved successes.  Tiffany’s story immediately grabbed our hearts because as a former nanny here in Arizona, I related to Tiffany’s entrepreneurial path. We used this product with BOTH our girls in our home, improving our experience of giving the girls their medicine when they were sick, which is never an easy task, so thank you for seeing this invention through. Tiffany's infectious spirit has attracted the attention of media heavy hitters, such as Dr. Oz, Fox Business, Entrepreneur, Forbes, and most recently the Today Show. Tiffany cruised from nanny to inventor to entrepreneur on a wave of creativity, business strategies, and ideas that tugged at her giving heart. A respected inventor, iHeartRadio host,[ii] motivational speaker, successful entrepreneur, and mother of three, Tiffany now leads the Mom Genius[iii] team of passionate entrepreneurs by her daily intention that business success and personal fulfillment are not mutually exclusive. Tiffany, it’s awesome to speak with you after all of these years of following and supporting each other’s work. For those watching, some history for you, Tiffany filmed a video[iv] for our early character ed program with her success story to inspire young entrepreneurs) and she has been supporting and cheering on our programs for the school market, which is exciting now, Tiffany, that you have created your own course for inventors that can be used by anyone, including schools. Welcome Tiffany and thanks so much for doing this on a day that most of us are working AND home schooling our children. Tiffany, it’s been a whirlwind since we first spoke over 10 years ago. Can you give a quick snapshot of what’s happened in your life since your appearance on Shark Tank in 2009? I know a lot has happened to you both personally and professionally Can you tell us about your online course[v] (who it is for, and what it covers)? How has your vision changed since you first launched Ava the Elephant and how have you navigated through this change?  How do you stay on track? I know over here, I’ve made many mistakes with product creation and marketing. What were some of your most memorable mistakes? Were there times you felt like giving up and if so, how did you get past that to where you are now? I did see an article that you wrote about “facing your fears of public speaking.” Is this still what you would say sticks out as your biggest learning experience? What have you learned most about yourself[vi] the past 11 years since your appearance on Shark Tank? How have you managed being a mompreneur, raising 3 children and handling everything that goes along with a business? What’s your current focus and vision for where you are going in the next few years? Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day, especially during such unusual times in the world. We look forward to following and supporting your success and spreading the word of your online courses and anything new you might think up.  What’s the best way for people to learn more about you?

016 | Tiffany Krumins Wants You to Know That You Are Enough

Success Unfiltered

016 | Tiffany Krumins Wants You to Know That You Are Enough This week we have the inspirational, Tiffany Krumins on our show. She is the founder of Ava the Elephant, which is an amazing tool that has changed the way that caregivers look at medicine time with their children. Ava is now one of Shark Tank's most well-known and beloved successes. Tiffany shared how she struggled to truly believe in herself, in the very beginning. She knew she had an incredible product that would help so many parents and caregivers, but when meeting with investors, she’d feel the pull of having to settle because she was concerned another investor would never come along, and she had big dreams for Ava. She quickly realized that there would always be more investors, more retailers and more TV shows. That she did not have to let others dictate or try to change the way she ran her business or the way she behaved in business. Tiffany now works to mentor other women to know they are worth it. That following their values is important and that they should never settle. That even if you don’t fit into the typical business mold there are people who will want to work with you, just as you are. Tiffany shares some of the major details of creating a product and trying to work with investors and retailers, in this episode. Enjoy and Thank you for listening and tuning into Success Unfiltered!

She tells us what it felt like to be turned down by 4 of the 5 sharks, but to hear a YES from Barbara. Tiffany tells the story of how she had been working to get Ava into Walmart, and how it ended up falling through because of things out of her control. Tiffany was almost on the show The Doctors, but unfortunately had to turn the opportunity down, she explains why. Business is bipoloar; one day you receive emails that lift you up, the next you are being turned down for a big opportunity. The most accomplished NO in Tiffany’s life was during her process of trying to license her product. Tiffany overcomes the bad days by returning to her original WHY. Tiffany shares a story of one of her prized possessions. Tiffany works with a lot of women who settle when it comes to investors, because they fear another won’t come along. She helps women realize that isn’t true. She shares a great story about how she had to turn a potential investor down because their values did not align with hers. Try not to be blinded by the love for your company, because it will get you in trouble. Tiffany shares what she would tell her younger self about being yourself.
