How ‘Shark Tank’ Host Robert Herjavec Got Scammed by His Own Sales Manager | Inc.


Funniest thing that happened to me my
first company and it’s actually only funny now because I’m sitting here and
have money so I start my own company and things are going great
I have great employees we’re growing all of a sudden our marketing head, Jennifer, quits. she’s got a different job everything’s great we’re cool as she’s
leaving we’re kind of having an exit interview it was great working with you
all of a sudden she starts crying and I’m like oh my gosh what have I done to
her because I just loved working with you so much you’re such a great boss
there’s something I have to tell you. Bob, not his real name, who’s running sales for you. He has a company on the side and he’s funneling half the deals to his own
company and I look at her and I’m like no I’m too smart to have that happen to
me. Jennifer, I don’t know what you’re talking about so all of a sudden I start
thinking what if it is true I go back to the deals that we have lost and I call
one of those customers so I called them up and I say hi just curious why didn’t
you guys go with us. Guy goes I don’t know what you’re talking about we actually
did buy from you my own sales manager had his own company on the side and he
would take an order for us and he started another company with a similar
name and it was taking those orders fulfilling them and cashing the checks
the minute you hired the first employee you got to be careful. I’ve had people do
horrible things to me in business people that work for me, competitors,
everybody you’ve got to look out for yourself.
