Dragons fired success of my rubbish idea

Are you one of the thousands of people who climb into your wheelie bin to compress the bags of rubbish inside? When a friend of mine fell out of his bin and broke his ankle, I started thinking about my Bin Trasher.
At my light engineering business in Bunclody, Co Wexford, I came up with a prototype and have since successfully patented the idea. Then last October I did a mad thing. I applied to go on Dragons' Den.
When you face those Dragons you are so nervous you could forget your own name.
