Some of Shark Tanks came from the Canadian version, Dragons’ Den

First off, Kevin O’Leary is also known as Mr. Wonderful. His beginnings with the concept of Shark Tank began with the Canadian version, Dragons’ Den.  According to All Shark Tank Products, he began dabbling in the business world while he was still in high school in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. One lesson that’s always stuck with O’Leary is to “only spend the dividends of his investment and never the principal.” Since then, O’Leary’s founded several successful businesses. Consequently, All Shark Tank Products claims that O’Leary “will undoubtedly go down as one of the savviest business entrepreneurs of the 21st century.
