The Road to Riches: Five cast members of Dragons' Den

The five Dragons with host Diane Buckner
I'm hooked on Dragons' Den, the CBC reality show "where aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their business concepts and products to a panel of Canadian business moguls who have the cash and the know-how make it happen."

I particularly enjoyed the March 18, 2010 episode, The Road to Riches, which profiled the five entrepreneurial Dragons:

W. Brett Wilson: Originally from North Battleford, Saskatchewan. Now lives in Calgary, where he carried the Olympic torch through the city.

Robert Herjavac:
Now lives in Toronto's Yorkville district, the son of Croatian immigrants.

Richard Treliving:
Originally from Virdin, Manitoba. Son of a barber, went onto becoming an RCMP.

Arlene Dickinson:
Single mom with four children, has three homes, including Calgary and Puerto Vallarta.

Kevin O'Leary: The "most fearsome" Dragon is originally from the suburbs of Montreal.

I have to agree that Dragons' Den is a great show. It gives a chance to entrepreneurs to pitch their business and have some exposure as well. But their is something in Dragons' Den that will lead you into losing your business or company. Check out our blog post and learn why Dragons' Den is the quickest way to lose your company.
