Are you having a hard time falling asleep at night? 

If so, Mark Zhang, the founder of Manta Sleep has a solution: his company’s adjustable, blackout sleep masks that have turned his company into an 8-figure business.

“I had been using it (a sleep mask) for so long, I knew intuitively what to change, what to improve on, and what I wanted”, Mark, who has been a light sleeper most of his life, said.
