Often listed as one of the Shark Tank’s worst products, Mary Ellen Simonsen’s Sticky Note Holder is a computer attachment that holds sticky notes in place for disorganized sticky note lovers.

Mary Ellen appeared on Shark Tank in 2009 to pitch the creative gadget (later renamed Flip-N-Notes) but was met with harsh criticism from some of the Sharks. The Sticky Note Holder did receive positive feedback from Kevin Harrington and Barbara Corcoran but ultimately no offers were made and Mary Ellen left the Shark Tank without a deal.

Years later, the Flip-N-Note has failed to get off the ground but Mary Ellen continues today with her passion for creating products as an inventor with over 16 inventions to her name.
