'Shark Tank' star Daymond John says his secret to work-life balance isn't warm and fuzzy, but it works

Daymond John, an entrepreneur and star of “Shark Tank,” posted his thoughts about work-life balance on Instagram. Use his methods and “you won’t regret it,” he says.

Daymond John, an investor on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” recently shared photos of a fishing trip he took at 5:30 a.m. on a Monday morning with his friends.

“I got a quick couple of hours to sneak in some striped bass fishing,” John said in an Instagram post on Nov. 4, which was accompanied by a photo of him holding up a huge fish.

The trip was all in the name of work-life balance, John wrote.

“If you want #worklifebalance, you need to make it a priority to steal away time for yourself no matter how small it is. It will add up over time and you won’t regret it,” he said.

There’s finally an affordable 3D printer, and it just went on sale

There’s finally an affordable 3D printer, and it just went on sale

There's finally an affordable 3D printer, and it just went on sale


Once upon a time, 3D printing was just a topic of fantasy films. Today, it’s a technology that’s available to the masses. There’s just one problem: it’s insanely expensive. Most models will cost you well over $1,000, which is why the creators of SparkMaker took it upon themselves to construct a 3D printer that’s actually affordable. 

With the help of over 2K backers, the SparkMaker Original SLA 3D Printer raised over $500K on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. That gives you an idea of how in-demand an affordable desktop 3D printer is. 

After many iterations and updates, they’ve solidified the design and it’s now available for purchase.

Segway’s first electric dirt bikes arrive in early 2020

Segway's first electric dirt bikes arrive in early 2020

Segway-Ninebot technically makes electric vehicles that go outside, but now it has machines designed explicitly for outdoor expeditions. The company has introduced two Dirt eBike models, the X160 and X260, that are billed as crosses between conventional dirt bikes and mountain bikes. While we wouldn’t call them radical departures from the norm, they can be customized using “standard motor parts” and use swappable batteries.

The X160 is the smaller bike meant for places where agility matters more than power. It only has an estimated 40.4-mile range and a 31.1MPH top speed, but it might be better for maneuvering on twisty trails thanks to its 17-inch wheels and overall more compact frame. The X260 is considerably more powerful with a 74.6-mile range and a 46.6MPH top speed, although its 19-inch wheels make it clear this is for more open-air environments.

Both bikes launch in the first quarter of 2020 at prices of $3,000 for the X160 and $4,500 for the X260. There will also be an Indiegogo campaign starting November 25h for those determined to get in early. You might not scramble to buy one unless you’re already in the market, but look at it this way: it’ll go nicely with your Segway e-skates.
