Nic is a professional surfer that ended up with a bad concussion and couldn’t find a good solution to get relief from migraine pains. So he created IceBeanie.
As the name implies, it’s basically a beanie that’s also an ice pack. Nic shared that the compression around his head helped relieve him of a lot of migraine pain.
Despite only being live for a few months, IceBeanie has already sold 2,500 units, which has resulted in $100,000 in sales. All of these sales have been direct to consumers through Amazon, Etsy, and the IceBeanie website.
Even better, Nic is able to make an IceBeanie for $7 and sells them for $39.95.
Further, Nic has used his leverage as a professional athlete to get even more athletic influencers to help promote the product. He shared that a lot of athletes enjoy using it after an intense workout to help cool down.
We’ve partnered with six companies to put together a Shark Tank Stocking Stuffer Box that’s worth $100! Here’s everything that’s in the box:
- Sheets Laundry Club Travel Packs x2
- Honey Bee Bars - 12 Pack
- Snactiv Finger Chopsticks
- FryAway Cooking Oil Solidifier
- Pizza Pack
- Nature’s Wild Berry Sampler Pack
Kevin O’Leary shared that while he respected the business that Nic had built, he felt that the market was just too small and dropped out.
Lori Greiner felt that the competition would be too much to compete with and dropped out.
Mark Cuban liked the business and said that if all else failed he could get them into the Dallas Mavericks locker room. He offered him $50,000 for 30% of the company, and Nic negotiated the deal to $50,000 for 25% equity.
After agreeing to the deal, Robert Herjavec and Daymond John both expressed interest in making an offer. Daymond even offered Nic $100,000 for 25% equity, after the deal with Mark had been made.
Despite this, Nic honored his deal with Mark, and IceBeanie finally left the tank with a new partner. Keep reading our IceBeanie update to find out what happened after

With rave reviews on Amazon and the company website, customers share their good experiences with the product, getting relief from several different ailments. They even have a shoutout on their website from Oscar Award Winning Actor, Geena Davis.
Our IceBeanie update research also found that the deal with Mark did close. During an interview with TrepTalks, Nic shared that working with Mark has been great and that he has helped keep him laser-focused on the business.
