ChordBuddy Faces Hard Decisions|Robert Herjavec discusses cutting costs and offshoring.|ChordBuddy's Travis Perry prides himself on keeping jobs in America and making sure his products are made here instead of overseas. But when it's clear the company is losing money, Shark Robert Herjavec explains the very real cost of that decision -- and it may mean the survival of the business. The good news: Travis later secured a big deal for a new educational product for the company, meaning his goal to keep it in America will succeed! From Episode 3 of Beyond the Tank.

 Shark Robert Herjavec works with ChordBuddy to make some big decisions about the company's future.

This show features the Sharks in their element, working with the entrepreneurs that they've invested in to grow their businesses and make them succeed -- taking them from successful companies to incredibly successful companies. The show also follows the journeys of some entrepreneurs who didn't get deals in The Tank, to see how they're faring in the aftermath -- are they staying the course or rapidly pivoting to make their company more appealing to investors?
