A Dragon’s Den Participant Previously Earned A Lot Of Money Peter Jones Claimed He Should Be A Dragon!

To get your blood pumping, there’s nothing like watching a group of British business moguls roasts someone else’s ideas for a billion dollars. Not every contestant is doomed to fail, though; for example, did you know that Peter Jones was once so impressed by one contestant’s wealth that he almost invited him to join the panel of judges?

In light of the fact that, yes, that really did occur. Below, you can see for yourself: Think back to 2017, when businessman Andrew Pearce promoted his rapidly growing online greeting card company by making an appearance on the show.

Pearce stunned the Dragons by saying, “To date, we’ve spent roughly £1.5million pounds” in creating Thoughtful, the card company in question, when challenged by Jones.

Since Jones now knew this wasn’t Pearce’s introductory gig, he said, “Andrew, I’m now absolutely intrigued. Where did you obtain all of that cash? In response, Pearce said, “I have, in the past, operated my own businesses. I started my first company, an outsourced call center when I was about 21 years old.

The sale price was $12.1 million, and my take was $6 million. He continued, “After that, I thought, ‘Why don’t we attempt some conference calling?'” Jones chimed in: “So you did that, and what did you sell that firm for?” That was sold for around £37 million. Around £15 million is what I managed to rake in.

Jones was so awed by Pearce’s success that he said, “You’ve made £21million, and clearly you are a big entrepreneur.” There is no doubt about that. You ought to be in this very seat.” Pearce said timidly, “Not quite yet.” People were really taken with Pearce’s humble demeanor, and the video was recently circulated on social media.

A multi-millionaire who puts modesty first.

I appreciate how he is reluctant to brag about his obvious accomplishment, as one reader put it. As opposed to showing off arrogance, which would have been understandable given his situation, he stammered awkwardly.
