Humble Farmer Stands Firm on Morals During Shark Tank Pitch, Lands Life-Changing Deal Instead of Selling Out
Shark Tank and Dragon’s Den are known for their high-stakes deals, but during one episode, a farmer from Florida named Johnny Georges showed he had something even more valuable than money. With his invention, the “Tree T-Pee,” he had a game-changing solution for irrigation that could save farmers thousands of gallons of water.
But when the Sharks asked him to raise his prices, Georges refused to overcharge his fellow farmers. His refusal to bend his morals moved one investor to give him the full $150,000 he requested. In a world where success is often measured by money, Georges proved that standing up for what you believe in is priceless.
