New Dragons' Den TV 2010: Pitching Secrets For The Best Dragons Den Investors Investment

We are in the throes of one of the worst economic downturns in history & to add more fuel to the fire, a UK general election looms.

Confidence in business growth is at an all time low as business owner’s fight to survive. Business finance & secure cash flow is key.

Although the new Dragons’ Den TV 2010 series 8 offers entrepreneurs hope by pitching for the best Dragons Den investors investment, be advised you enter the Dragon Den at your peril.

Two very significant factors have propelled the Dragons’Den into compulsive viewing for every business owner and aspiring business entrepreneur.

The BBC production team have taken a very mundane topic, i.e. business, and transformed it into one of the best entertainment programmes on TV.

The second reason is the current economic downturn and the failure of many of the banks to lend money to new businesses and existing business owners.

This has forced all aspiring start up entrepreneurs to seek alternative methods for finding financial investment to help them grow their business into a long term sustainable business success.

The Dragons’ Den offers these business owners an opportunity to enter the Dragon Den and pitch their business idea to five very astute Dragon investors with the sole aim of securing the investors investment.

It is rumoured that the new Dragons’Den TV series 8 is going to be the best Dragons Den yet. In fact the rumour mongers believe this new Dragons’Den TV series is increasing from a series of eight TV programmes, to ten programmes.

If this is true then it’s a testament to the high quality of this remarkable successful TV series.

From watching the previous best Dragons Den programmes, there appears to be no fixed profile for who will succeed and secure the The Dragons’ Den investors investment.

No one single industry sector appears to be the most appealing choice for the individual Dragons, as the investors investment has spread right across a very diverse portfolio of business sectors.

This is despite each of the new Dragons’ Den TV Investors hailing from a specific industry sector.

For example it is no great secret that Duncan Bannatyne Dragons Den has primary business interests in hotels and health clubs.

Peter Jones Dragons Den is well known for his telecommunications and e-commerce business ventures.

Theo Paphitis Dragons Den is heavily involved in the retail sector.

Deborah Meaden Dragons is known as a marketing expert who was involved in the holiday and lesuire industry.

Dragons Den James Caan really came to prominence after launching his own management recruitment agency.

Despite still retaining links to their primary business interests, the Dragons’Den investors have made some very astute investors investment in a number of diverse industry sector businesses which have presented before prior series of the best Dragons Den series.

While the new Dragons’ Den TV series seeks to maintain its success, new entrepreneurs will continue to enter the Dragon Den and pitch their ideas for investors investment in the new 2010 Dragons’ Den TV series.

Furthermore the Dragons will seek to expand their business sector portfolios by investing in the latest entrepreneurs hoping to make it big in business.

On the face of it the BBC has produced a complimentary environment for new and aspiring entrepreneurs to present their business ideas for investors investment.

Those who pitch successfully get oodles of added value benefits from securing investment from one or more of the Dragons’ Den investors.

While the financial investment is the primary factor for most entrepreneurs pitching, the added bonus of fifteen minutes of fame also goes a long way in raising awareness of their business as well.

I’m sure when Andy Warhol suggested that everyone in their lifetime will grab fifteen minutes of fame, he didn’t consider it as part of a business owners overall marketing strategy.

Those aspiring entrepreneurs who enter the Dragon Den, can at the very least take comfort in the fact that irrespective of whether they are successful in gaining the investors investment, the BBC has offered them the opportunity to join a fraternity of ‘Cool’ entrepreneurs.

With the exception of Michael Douglas in the Hollywood blockbuster movie, Wall Street, no other form of business investor has ever entered the realms of being cool. This is another factor which has propelled the best Dragons Den entrepreneurs into the media spotlight.

No doubt the next tranche of aspiring entrepreneurs looking to participate in the new Dragons’ Den TV series 8 will be hoping they emerge as one of the ‘Cool’ successes.

The two alternatives to this, are that you end up appearing so uninspiring that you fail to get any actual broadcast time in the Dragon Den.

The second alternative is that you do or say something that forces the Dragons to humiliate you and your business idea.

From an ongoing brand awareness and business marketing perspective, it won’t do you or your business any good if one or more of the Dragons’ Den investors mentions he would rather stick pins in his eyes, than invest in your business. This phrase has been uttered by Theo Paphitis.

Other put downs include: “You have presented yourself as completely un-investable,” from Deborah Meaden.

Peter Jones has told more than one budding entrepreneur, “you have completely wasted my time; this is not a viable business proposition.”

Entrepreneurs must tremble in their shoes as gravelly tongued Duncan Bannatyne dismisses them with the following comments: “I’ve never heard of such a ridiculous idea for a business, I’m out.”

As the newest investor in the Dragons’Den, James Caan often offers a more subtle verbal dismissal like, “thank you, but this does not appear to be a viable business which can offer a return to an investor.”

Sometimes you can almost see the entrepreneur stagger as this dagger of subtle dismissal ends their dreams of gaining any investors investment.

All business owners can learn from the business secrets and tips disclosed by the best Dragons Den investors, which is why I’ve included some of their best documented comments in the following paragraphs.

Deborah Meaden Dragons Den: Investors Investment Secret #1: Research Your Business Market

nation and she claims to have inherited her pro-activeness from her resourceful mother.

Many employers need a notary public

Many Employers Need a Notary Public

Your employer asks that more of the staff become notary publics; what does a notary public do? A registered notary public is frequently needed in real estate offices, banks and legal firms for the signing of many legal documents. The process of becoming a notary public, in most states, is simple and straightforward; and becoming one makes you much more valuable to your employer. Being a notary shows your employer that you???re interested in increasing your value to the your company, and it???s another item to add to your resume. What???s a notary public do? That???s a question asked by many. The purpose behind notarization is to have an impartial witness present when important documents are signed. Many legal documents need to be signed in front of an impartial witness. A notary serves as the witness that the signers agree that the facts of the document are correct and they agree with them. Notarization is necessary not only for day to day business functions, but also to help protect the general public from fraud. Documents that require notarization include deeds, mortgages, affidavits, real estate deeds, contracts and loans, as well as other documents. Contracts willingly signed by all parties are verified by being signed and stamped by a notary. A verification of identity using the signers drivers license is required by the notary. After their identity is verified and they sign the document, you put a notary jurat stamp on it, seal it and sign it. A notary jurat is just the statement at the documents end that says the name of the person, the day they signed, and that you were there to witness them sign it. The only condition under which a notary public would offer legal advice is one where the notary is also a lawyer. A potential candidate for becoming a notary public will find the following tips helpful. Depending on what state you live in, there are different requirements for becoming a notary. A notary will normally only be certified to notarize documents in the state in which certification was granted. The certification process for a notary in Van Nuys, California requires a background check, a class, a multiple choice test, and several fees. But in other states, becoming a notary public is as easy as getting a drivers license. Renewals are nearly automatic. Notary licenses expire every four years in most states and require reappointment at that time. Sending a $95 fee to the Florida Notary Association along with a completed form, a copy of the expired or current notary license and proof of Florida residency will get your Florida notary license renewed.

Points you should consider when hiring a business plan writer:


A business plan is an important document, which requires enough time and proficiency. Writing a business plan is not an easy task. Until or unless you don’t have years, of experience you will be unable to write a good and winning business plan that will take your business towards success. Many entrepreneurs feel fatigued in writing the business plan due to lack of time and poor writing skills and that is why they hire business plan writer who helps them in writing the good quality business plan.
There is a big difference between a business plan writer and a professional business plan writer. If you are writing the business plan to attract investors and lenders than it is necessary that your business plan writer must have knowledge and skills or writing a good and high-quality business plan that will attract your investors and lenders.
