'It's been 12 months since we appeared on Shark Tank… we have had a great journey but I would like to worry you (or reassure) you all that hard work is still needed regardless of TV exposure,' she wrote.

'There is no such thing as an overnight success… it's the small consistent effort that gets you the wins, not the bright lights. That's why you have to love what you are doing and not be doing it because you think it will give you an income. I'm still trying to clear credit cards.'

Aussie entrepreneur reveals truth behind reality TV appearance

It seems so straightforward: come up with a business idea, appear on Shark Tank — and watch yourself become a millionaire overnight.

But it turns out the reality of an appearance on the hit show is far removed from that glamorous fantasy.

Just ask Lori Phegan who made her Shark Tank debut a year ago.

The mum-of-two pitched her business, The Inappropriate Gift Co — which sells hilarious, swear word-laden novelty products like mugs, stationery and cards — and received offers from all of the sharks during the season four premiere last May.

It's our 1 year anniversary since we appeared on Shark Tank Australia (same as Dragons Den)  This time last year I was with  #BudgetBen and our friends and we were all getting pissed waiting for our episode to air! 

What a difference a year can make and while our exposure on National Australian TV certainly helped, it is actually you guys that we owe our success too.   Thanks for all your support on socials, by opening this newsletter and by spreading the word about our cheeky gift store.

Welcome to our 39th edition of our WTF newsletter.

Two elderly gentlemen, who had been without sex for several years, decided they needed to visit a cat-house for some tail..... When they arrived, the madam took one look at them and decided she wasn't going to waste any of her girls on these two old men.

So she used "blow-up" dolls instead. She put the dolls in each man's room and left them to their business. After the two men were finished, they started walking home and began to talking. The first man said, "I think the girl I had was dead. She never moved, talked or even groaned... how was it for you?"

The second man replied, "I think mine was a witch. When I nibbled on her breast..... she farted and flew out the window!"

My hubby walked into the room and said, "why haven't you taken off your work jacket and shoes?"  "Because I didn't feel like it" I replied.

"Hang on, how much have you had to drink" he said.   "What's with all the f#cking questions" I snapped "why can't you just leave me have my bath in peace"

What happens if you pour boiling water down a rabbit hole? you get a hot cross bunny.

What did the Easter egg say to the boiling water? It might take me a while to get hard cause I just got laid by some chick.

I'm combining Easter and April Fool's day this year...I'm sending the kids out to look for eggs I haven't hidden.

I met Arnold Schwarzenegger and he was eating a Cadburys egg He said, "Have to love Easter, baby."
