Are you putting a stake in the sand?Posted: April 21, 2021 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: shark tank Leave a comment
On the ABC show “Shark Tank”, Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary asked his colleague Lori Greiner if she was delivering an ultimatum in their negotiations for an investment in a participant’s business. This is a conflation of “a stake in the ground” (to take a first step to get something started) and “a line in the sand” (a point in which one will not go or budge). Maybe the investment was property in Florida? A big thanks to Mike Kovacs for hearing this one and sending it in.
