The final Dragon’s Den.
And guess what?
It wasn’t so scary…
Sorry little guy, but it’s true.
Now Maria and I had spent the entire two days before the Dragon’s Den slaving away on the business report.
So by the time I had gotten home, I was absolutely exhausted.
And before I knew it, it was morning.
I don’t think I’ve woken up before double digits in months, but that day I was up by 7am, to eat a good breakfast and head down to the library to proof check everything before we had to hand it in.
I was done….
Now don’t get me wrong, QB was still stressing hard about this. We rehearsed our presentation and went through our Powerpoint slides multiple times, we even (unintentionally) presented in front of an entire classroom right before our final meeting with the Dragons.
And still, we were really nervous.
But what more could we do?
The Business Report was finished.
The Powerpoint was finished.
We had practiced and rehearsed.
We knew what to say, annnnnnd we had eaten bananas, proven to make you less nervous! http://www.20minutestolessstress.com/Banannas.html
Now, there was nothing left to do but wait outside until it was time.
And then, we started to get a bit stir crazy.
Now maybe it was stress relieving mechanism, but we all started singing…
And it kind of helped.
So when we were finally called in, and the presentation began, and I started to feel a bit nervous…. I sang a bit of this to myself.
My advice to future YE entrepreneurs? Sing a silly song to yourself to calm the nerves.
Well, the Dragons were all very courteous and constructive, and before we knew it, it was all over. We were walking out the door feeling relived and elated, we had done great!
So take that Dragons!
You’re not as tough as you think you are.
And this YE experience is finally over.
