Amber Leong says the key to creating a great product is its simplicity, which certainly applies to her device: you wake up, and you turn it on for 15 to 60 minutes. Sluggish from her poorly lit corporate job at Jack Link’s Beef Jerky during a Minnesota winter and frustrated by the clunky sun lamp she thought would help, she invented her own sleek, stylish version. Leong garnered a $750,000 investment from Lori Greiner and Mark Cuban on season 11 of Shark Tank. On the show, Leong said Circadian Optics had sold $5 million in product since 2016, and the company has seen as much as 10 to 20 percent bump in sales since March. Turns out, we all need a little sun right now. – Gabrielle Bienasz
