The stars from ABC's Shark Tank give their best tips
On Selling Yourself
"It's all about sales. I've never seen an entrepreneur who wasn't a salesman. I always feel like, with an entrepreneur, it's not just about convincing someone to come in but it's really about getting them to see life the way you see it through your eyes." —Barbara Corcoran
"You've got to have that humble arrogance. Nobody wants to invest in someone so arrogant they piss you off and nobody wants to invest in a wallflower who is not going to stand up for themselves." —Robert Herjavec
On Hard Work
"We romanticize entrepreneurship so much that people don't do the work…. It's not just a dream, not just a goal; it's a lot of hard work. A lot of people are wantrepreneurs, not entrepreneurs. I use that line a lot." —Mark Cuban
"Make sure you're doing something that you love, that you're willing to do for the rest of your life. If you're doing it for money, that's the only thing you won't make." —Daymond John
"Money is not always a blessing. Sometimes it's a curse because it gives you the opportunity to try a multitude of things. Great businesses are built on a singular laser-like focus." —Robert Herjavic
"You've got to prove the concept, prove the price point. Proof. Proof. Proof…. If you can prove those things, the money will come. If you haven't proven those things, then you're going to have to grovel." —Robert Herjavec
On When to Give Up
"As soon as I figure out it's not working, I take it behind the barn and shoot it." —Kevin O'Leary
