MULTIPLE OFFERS DURING FRIDAY NIGHT'S EPISODE OF SHARK TANK FEATURING NAPERVILLE MOM & HER DAD The local Dad/Daughter duo who appeared on Shark Tank Friday, March 12 were offered many deals with the Sharks playfully fighting over the entrepreneurial pair and their innovative invention, Totes Babies Car Seat Carrier for grocery carts.
As amazingly fun as it was to watch, it was equally heartwarming as the two shared their admiration for one another and expressed how grateful they were to be working together. Lindsey Fleischhauer, 38 of Naperville, and her father, Stan Valiulis, 63 of Rockford were beaming as they went back & forth between Sharks, ultimately choosing Lori, who offered $100,000 for a 25% stake in their company instead of Robert & Michael's combo-offer which was the same. Lori convinced them she was the better choice and though Lindsey shared that they "love them all!", the pair jumped for joy after announcing they were going with Lori.
Glancer Magazine's original story introducing you to Lindsey and her dad, along with their innovative company, was published in the March 2021 issue of Glancer Magazine and be viewed here.
