Eyes Wide Open Podcast, Episode 009: Two Blind Brothers On Their Vision Born of Blindness

To succeed you must define and pursue your own success. A deceptively simple fact, too often it eludes us as we chase successes not our own. This series highlights stories and wisdom that inspire us to see success more clearly.

Bradford and Bryan Manning are two brothers who share both blindness and a vision for a cure. Their thriving new company, “Two Blind Brothers,” manufactures ultra-soft designer clothing from natural fibers, for the sole purpose of funding blindness research. 100% of their profits are donated to the effort. Feel good, look good, do good–all at the same time. That’s their model, and it has been wildly successful.

I caught up with Brad and Bryan for ewop-009, and we talked about their thriving venture, their vision of success, and life as blind entrepreneurs. You can watch our interview here. Please also subscribe to the Eyes Wide Open Podcast  so you don’t miss our other great episodes!
