by the Company.

pecuniary advantage if such activity interferes with Employee's duties and responsibilities hereunder. The foregoing limitations
shall not be construed as prohibiting Employee from making personal investments in such form or manner as will neither require

the terms of paragraph 3 hereof.
the extent Employee is asked to serve as an officer or director of Ronco Brands, Inc., the parent holding company of the Company,
Employee’s duties to Ronco Brands, Inc. shall be deemed to have been included in this Agreement, shall not be entitled to
any additional compensation hereunder, and shall be covered by all provisions of the Agreement mutatis mutandis.
The Company employs Employee for a period commencing on the Effective Date and ending on the third anniversary of the Effective
Date hereof (the "Term"), subject to termination prior to such date pursuant to Section 6 hereof.
For all services rendered by Employee, the Company shall compensate Employee as follows:
Salary. The base salary payable hereunder to Employee shall equal $200,000 per year, payable on a regular basis in
accordance with the Company's standard payroll procedures but not less than monthly. In addition, on at least an annual
basis, the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board"), together with the Compensation Committee of the Company's
Board, if any, will review Employee's performance and may make additional increases to such base salary if, in its
discretion, any such additional increase is warranted.
Perquisites, Benefits, And Other Compensation. Employee shall be entitled to receive additional benefits and compensation from
the Company in such form and to such extent as specified below:
of that portion of the total premiums for coverage for Employee under health, hospitalization, disability, dental, life and other

or taxes on either the Company or Employee under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and/or Internal Revenue Code. The
benefits provided to Employee under this clause (i) shall be at least equal to such benefits provided to executives or employees
in similar positions at the Company.
for all business travel and other out-of-pocket expenses reasonably incurred by Employee in the performance of Employee's services
pursuant to this Agreement. All reimbursable expenses shall be appropriately documented in reasonable detail by Employee upon submission
of any request for reimbursement, and in a format and manner consistent with the Company's expense reporting policy.

Company-wide employee benefits as available from time to time. Employee shall be entitled to five (5) weeks of vacation per
year in addition to all Federal holidays. Vacation shall be non-cumulative, and if not used, shall expire on December 31 of each
year of this Agreement unless extended in writing by the Company.
at least an annual basis, the Company’s Board, together with the Compensation Committee of the Company's Board, if any, will

Any such performance-based compensation may be in cash or in securities of the Company, or any combination thereof, and shall be
subject to such timing of receipt, vesting and any other conditions (including but not limited to conditions which may extend beyond
the termination of this contract) as imposed by the Board at the time of such grant and at the time of adoption of any plan under
which such performance-based compensation may be granted, if any.
acknowledges that during the course of Employee's employment Employee will receive confidential and proprietary information from
and concerning the Company. Employee also acknowledges that the Company will make substantial investments in the development of
the Company's goodwill and in Employee's professional development. The capital expended to develop this goodwill directly benefits
Employee and should continue to do so in the event that the relationship between the Company and Employee is terminated. Likewise,
the Company has conferred and will confer a direct economic benefit on Employee. Employee agrees that the Company is entitled to
protect these business interests and investments and to prevent Employee from using or taking advantage of the foregoing economic
benefits to the Company's detriment. Employee shall sign a separate non-competition agreement which shall include appropriate covenants
related to the Company’s ownership of any innovations, designs, or intellectual property that Employee may develop or contribute
to during Employee’s tenure with the Company.
agrees that, except for services and duties performed for or on behalf of the Company according to this Agreement, Employee will
not, during the period of Employee's employment with the Company, and for a period (the "Restricted Period") of one (1)
years immediately following the termination of Employee's employment under this Agreement, for any reason whatsoever, directly
or indirectly, for himself or on behalf of or in conjunction with any other person, persons, company, partnership, corporation,
association, enterprise, venture or business of whatever nature:
as an officer, director, shareholder, owner, partner, joint venturer, lender or in a managerial capacity, whether as an employee,
independent contractor, agent, consultant or advisor or as a sales representative, or similar business in direct competition with
those aspects of the business of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company, with which Employee has had any involvement, within
United States of America, Canada and all other countries in which customers of the Company have access to the world wide web (the
any person who is, at that time, or who has been within one (1) year prior to that time, an employee of the Company for the purpose
or with the intent of enticing such employee away from or out of the employ of the Company;
any person or entity which is, at that time, or which has been within one (1) year prior to that time, a customer, including, but
not limited to, any live shopping service provider or supplier of the Company for the purpose of soliciting or selling products
or services in direct competition with those aspects of the business of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company with which
Employee has had any involvement, within the Territory;
any prospective acquisition candidate, on Employee's own behalf or on behalf of any competitor or potential competitor, which candidate
was, to Employee's knowledge, either called upon by the Company or for which the Company made an acquisition analysis, for the
purpose of acquiring such entity. Notwithstanding the above, the foregoing covenant shall not be deemed to prohibit Employee from
acquiring as an investment not more than five percent (5%) of the capital stock of a competing business, whose stock is traded
on a national securities exchange or over-the-counter.
recognition of the substantial nature of such potential damages and the difficulty of measuring economic losses to the Company
as a result of a breach of the foregoing covenants, and because of the immediate and irreparable damage that could be caused to
the Company for which they would have no other adequate remedy, Employee agrees that in the event of breach by Employee of the
foregoing covenant, the Company shall be entitled to specific performance of this provision and co-injunctive and other equitable
is agreed by the parties that the foregoing covenants in this paragraph 4 impose a reasonable restraint on Employee in light of
the activities and business of the Company on the date of the execution of this Agreement and the current plans of the Company
and Employee that such covenants be construed and enforced in accordance with the changing activities, business and locations of
the Company throughout the term of this Agreement, whether before or after the date of termination of the employment of Employee.
of the covenants in this paragraph 4 shall be construed as an agreement independent of any other provision in this Agreement, and
the existence of any claim or cause of action of Employee against the Company, whether predicated on this Agreement or otherwise,
shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement by the Company of such covenants. Further, this paragraph 4 shall survive the
termination of this Agreement and the termination of Employee's employment with the Company. It is specifically agreed that the
period of one (1) year following termination of employment stated at the beginning of this paragraph 4, during which the agreements
and covenants of Employee made in this paragraph 4 shall be effective, shall be computed by excluding from such computation any
time during which Employee is in violation of any provision of this paragraph 4, and that such period shall terminate upon Company’s
failure to pay its obligation pursuant to Section 5 below (which obligations shall remain payable regardless of the termination
of this paragraph 4).

Employee acknowledges and agrees that in the course of rendering services to the Company and its customers, Employee will have
access to and will become acquainted with confidential and proprietary information about the professional, business and financial
affairs of the Company, its affiliates and its vendors, suppliers and customers, and that Employee may have contributed to or may
in the future contribute to such information. Employee further recognizes that Employee is being employed as a key employee, that
the Company is engaged in a highly competitive business, and that the success of the Company in the marketplace and business depends
upon its goodwill and reputation for integrity, quality and dependability. Employee recognizes that in order to guard the legitimate
interests of the Company it is necessary for the Company to protect all such confidential and proprietary information, goodwill

documents or information, marketing data, client lists and trade secrets which are confidential. Such information shall hereinafter
be called "Proprietary Information" and shall include any and all items enumerated in the preceding sentence which come
within the scope of the business activities of the Company as to which Employee has had or may have access, whether previously
existing, now existing or arising hereafter, whether or not conceived or developed by others or by Employee alone or with others
during the period of his service to the Company, and whether or not conceived or developed during regular working hours. "Proprietary

public thereafter, provided such information is not in the public domain as a consequence of disclosure by Employee in violation
of this Agreement.
Obligations. Employee agrees and acknowledges that the Proprietary Information is of critical importance to the Company and
a violation of this Section 8 will seriously and irreparably impair and damage the Company's business. Employee therefore agrees,
while he is an employee of the Company, and for a period of 1 year following termination of this Agreement, to keep all Proprietary
Information strictly confidential.

hereunder, Employee shall not disclose, directly or indirectly (except as required by law), any Proprietary Information to any
person other than (a) the Company, (b) persons who are authorized employees of the Company at the time of such disclosure, (c)

termination of Employee's employment hereunder, Employee shall deliver to the Company all notes, letters, documents, tapes, discs,
recorded data and records which may contain Proprietary Information which are then in Employee's possession or control and shall

criminal, administrative, or investigative (other than an action by the Company against Employee), by reason of the fact that Employee
is or was performing services under this Agreement or as a Director of the Company, then the Company shall indemnify Employee against
all expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees), judgments, fines, and amounts paid in settlement, as actually and reasonably
incurred by Employee in connection therewith. In the event that both Employee and the Company are made a party to the same third-party
action, complaint, suit, or proceeding, the Company agrees to engage competent legal representation, and Employee agrees to use
the same representation, provided that if counsel selected by the Company shall have a conflict of interest that prevents such
counsel from representing Employee, Employee may engage separate counsel and the Company shall pay all reasonable attorneys' fees
of such separate counsel. Further, while Employee is expected at all times to use Employee's best efforts to faithfully discharge
his duties under this Agreement, Employee cannot be held liable to the Company for errors or omissions made in good faith where
Employee has not exhibited gross, willful and wanton negligence and misconduct or performed criminal and fraudulent acts which
materially damage the business of the Company.
OF EMPLOYEE. Employee hereby represents and warrants to the Company that the execution of this Agreement by Employee and his
employment by the Company and the performance of Employee's duties hereunder will not violate or be a breach of any agreement with
a former employer, client, or any other person or entity. Further, Employee agrees to indemnify the Company for any claim, including
but not limited to attorneys' fees and expenses of investigation, by any such third party that such third party may now have or
may hereafter come to have against the Company based upon or arising out of any noncompetition agreement, invention or secrecy
agreement between Employee and such third party which was in existence as of the date of this Agreement.

continue to truthfully disclose to the Company the following matters, whether occurring, at any time during the five (5) years
immediately preceding the date of this Agreement or at any time during the term of this Agreement:

the Company's respective heirs, successors and assigns; provided, however, that Employee shall have no right to assign Employee's
rights or duties under this contract to any other person. In the event of the sale, merger or consolidation of the Company, Employee
specifically agrees that the Company may assign the Company's rights and obligations hereunder to the Company's successor, assign
or purchaser. In addition, and in any event, the Company may, at any time, assign the Company's rights and obligations under this
Agreement to any person that is an affiliate of the Company or to any person which, after any such assignment, employs at least
