Best Gift Ever! Shark Tank's Kevin O'Leary Makes Entrepreneurs Dream Come True

Shark Tank Star Kevin O'Leary makes one formerly unemployed entrepreneur's dreams come true.

Three years ago BenjiLock founder Robbie Cabral was laid off.

After appearing on ABC's Shark Tank this year, he secured a $200,000 investment from Kevin O'Leary for BenjiLock, a padlock that can be opened with a user's fingerprint. 

O'Leary helped Cabral secure a product licensing deal with Hampton Products. That means some lucrative royalty checks are coming to Cabral, a stark contrast to his unemployed days just a few years ago.
