Episode #16, Segment #2 - Friends, Partners, Entrepreneurs

Devon Read, Ryan Jordan and Amy Oliveira are the founders of Happy Owl Studio, an innovative maker of stylish and useful accessories for the Apple iPad and iPod.  The threesome not only work together at the office, they're long-time friends.  Reed and Oliveira are engaged.

As Read and Jordan explain on this week's edition of Business Unconventional, very little in their background would forecast the success they've had with their company.  In fact, it was not very long ago that Read, the CEO, was an infantry reservist assigned to the front lines in Iraq.

The path that Read, Jordan and Oliveira have traveled has been neither easy nor conventional. However, their story is a great example of how anyone who dreams big, works smart and commits to success can beat the odds.

This is part two of a two-part interview.

B. Unconventional airs each Sunday morning at 8 a.m. (MST) on 710 KNUS in Denver.  The program, hosted by David Biondo and DeanRotbart, is also streamed over the Internet at www.710KNUS.com. 

Original air date:  February 12, 2012
