13 Products Featured on Shark Tank That You Can Now Buy on Amazon

As an entrepreneur, you’re likely already familiar with ABC’s Shark Tank, the show where aspiring business owners pitch their products to celebrity investors.

Even some that didn’t get investment on the show have realized degrees of success as well. The show rewards these hard-working innovators with brand recognition, but then the money from the sharks themselves allow business operations to scale to the point where you may see ads online or, in the case of these products, you start to see them all over Amazon.

It was a pocket knife with several tools, besides the blade. The accessory tools consisted of a small awl, can opener, bottle opener, a standard screwdriver bit and a cutting blade. The first thing to notice was that my grandmother was no fool. The blade, no matter how much I tried to sharpen it, could not cut peanut butter. I had no idea what an awl was used for and never really had much need for the other tools. That knife represented my first step in outdoor survival and independence. Wh...

LI wine distributor admits fraud involving product featured on ‘Shark Tank’

You might be using private browsing or have notifications blocked. Please enable notifications or using normal browsing mode. A Long Island wine distributor pleaded guilty Monday to an almost $1 million scheme, fraudulently taking advantage of publicity generated by the television show “Shark Tank.” Joseph Falcone, 59, admitted committing wire fraud in federal court in Central Islip by claiming to investors that he would use their money to buy and distribute single-serving, sealed plastic glasses of wine — also known as wine-in-a-cup — that was featured on the television show, officials said. Falcone collected $872,000 from unidentified investors on Long Island, between September of 2014 and November of 2015, but spent $527,000 of the money on buying a home in Florida and trading online in securities, according to officials. The investors’ money was supposedly to be used by Falcone’s company, 3 G’s Vino in Bethpage and Farmingdale. Falcone, now of Melbourne, Florida, theoretically faces up to 20 years in prison, but under the terms of a plea deal, he cannot appeal unless he is sentenced to more than 30 months in prison. “Falcone lured investors into believing that they were fun...

Staying on the property has its advantages: you can use Disney’s Magic Band system for everything—from entry into your room to making purchases in and around the parks. But the Disney hotels book far in advance and get more expensive (and harder to get) as you get closer to your intended travel date. Staying off-property is often an appealing choice: Those hotels can offer attractive rates, extensive amenities, transport to the parks, and the ability to accrue loyalty points. Here are some of the best hotels close to Walt Disney World that are worth a closer look. This luxury Spanish Revival-style hotel is very close to the parks, and has prime viewing of the nightly fireworks at Magic Kingdom. The AAA Five Diamond resort includes a golf course, a spa, a fine dining steakhouse, meals with Disney characters, and a five-acre waterpark—with kid ...
