Brian Lim's parents immigrated to the United States in their mid twenties so that Brian and his two other siblings can have a better chance at getting a better life. Lim's parents opened a donut shop in Los Angeles, and would often work 18 hour work-days to make ends meet. Growing up, Lim would help at his parent's shop after school and work full time during the weekends. This experience of helping his parents and witnessing their hard work gave Lim a strong work ethnic that allowed him today to form not one, but three businesses: Emazing Lights
, and IntotheAM
Brian Lim first stepped into the Shark Tank 2 years ago with Emazing Lights and blew the sharks out of the water. Robert Herjavec called him the most impressive entrepreneur they have ever had on the show, with all the sharks making offers. Lim took on a deal with Mark Cuban and Daymond John ($650,000 for 5 percent equity and 20 percent commission on licensing deals), and since then, his businesses have grew rapidly.
