Adam Wegener, founder of Trash Amps, built a business around the portable Mason-jar amps he started making back in college. Adam talks about getting Trash Amps off the ground thanks to financial investments from friends and family. He recalls spending long nights in his mom’s garage building one amp at a time – an experience that shaped the way he scales his business today.
Romy Taormina is CEO of Psi Health Solutions, Inc. who turned drab wristbands into fashionable accessories that help relieve nausea. Romy admits she didn’t set out to revolutionize the industry, but telling the story of her brand in a deeply authentic way helped her company grow and thrive. Also helpful? Whenever she gets feedback on her product, Romy says, she listens very carefully.
