One of the reasons I launched Merchant Inspired was to help others in the industry grab that dream job or at least get closer to it. It’s the reason I love being a mentor, it’s the reason I added "coach" to my website, and it’s the reason for writing today’s post.

When it comes to sunglasses, I own very few pairs. Unlike Jackie Onassis who had a basket of them by her front door (love that by the way), I stick to one or two pairs that I love. So for today’s story, I am diving into the history of Ray-Ban, another iconic American-born retailer, whose lenses remain timeless, cool, and relevant eighty years later. Let’s get started...
