With Humility and Perserverence, Johnny's Tree Teepee Saves Millions Of Gallons Of Water
Categories: Life Stories
Johnny Georges is, put simply, the man. The humility, perseverance, and genuine care of his presentation and response changes the tide of his ‘Shark Tank’ interview.
At the start he presents a passion of his: improving the lives of his farmers. The judges are moved, but at the same time, they push back. A couple of their responses (like Kevin O’Leary’s harsh reasoning at 6:10) cut Georges down and highlight his lack of business experience. They are shocked he hasn’t raised the price and expanded his market.
But Georges’ caring nature steals the show and the hearts of the judges. It goes to show that character can never be undervalued or underestimated…Props to Paul Mitchell cofounder John Paul DeJoria for recognizing that.
Our takeaway: Pursue your dreams and be a kind person in the process.
The first of its kind, the Tree-T-Pee is a water containment system for agribusinesses. Tree-T-Pee creator and farmer Johnny Georges created the product out of his passion for water conservation.
The Tree-T-Pee supplies water conservation through micro-sprinklers and frost protection through its cone-shaped tree guard made of recycled plastic that is positioned at the base of trees.
