Episode 9: Funky Goddess
Q: Explain your Dragon's Den experience?
A: I was nervous but it was also a dream come true as I watch it all the time. My Dad loved it too, but he passed away in May 2011. I miss him so much but he would be so proud.
Q: Who was the toughest Dragon?
A: I think the toughest was Norah, but rightly so, because I forgot some of my figures.
Q: Were you nervous?
A: A little nervous but I knew this was a once in a Lifetime opportunity so I had to go for it.
Q: Were you surprised by some of the questions?
Q: Who was most interested in your idea?
A: I think Norah and Gavin were most interested.
Q: Would you have done anything differently?
A: Yes, I wouldn't have got emotional, but when the adreline is pumping and the nerves kick in I suppose it is inevitable.
Q: Would you recommend applying for Dragon's Den to any other budding entrepreneurs?
Q: What does this mean to you personally?
A: It meant the world to me personally and I know that Dad would be so proud.
Q: In five year's time where do you see your product/company?
A: I would like to see Funky Goddess as a brand name for girls in Ireland and the UK, to be in pharmacies and beauty salons nationwide and to have lots of tips and advice and for teens on my site and to go around to schools to do talks.
Q: What is your lasting memory of the Den?
A: How nice the Dragons were in real life!
Q: At any point did you think you wouldn't get the investment?
A: Yes, when Norah asked me for figures and I didn't have them.
