The old saying "Don't reinvent the wheel" doesn't apply to these two entrepreneurs. David Patrick and Zack Fleishman are the creators and founders of Shark Wheel which is a revolutionary wheel design and product. The circle wheel had not been redesigned for thousands and thousands of years until their unique product came along. Their product has generated an incredible amount of interest and their popularity helped them land a spot on TV's hit show, Shark Tank. In this episode:

  • Dedicating an entire childhood to one sport
  • Sustaining a devastating injury at the height of one's athletic career
  • Going from the mortgage banking software industry to reinventing the wheel
