Episode 5: Jenny Amaraneni – SOLO Eyewear

“I literally went on Google and typed: How do you manufacture sunglasses?


Jenny Amaraneni

Co-Founder & CEO of SOLO Eyewear

Repurposing bamboo and recycled plastic to restore vision to over 13,000 people in 32 countries. That’s the power of what Jenny has built: SOLO Eyewear, a sunglasses manufacturer that uses 10% of its profits to fund eye care around the world. Time Magazine even named her one of the World’s Most Influential Change Agents. Hear first-hand the biggest challenges she faced starting the company.

At the end of this episode I discuss the anxiety of my launch, my failure of balancing time spent on the show with the rest of my life, and the value of reaching out to some of my listeners first hand. You know who you are!

Jenny has a really great story, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
