Ray J, the musician and TV star, wanted to be a tech entrepreneur like you. He launched an electric bike, but it didn’t go as well as planned. “I wasn’t listening to anybody,” he says of that time. His finances suffered from unfruitful startup attempts. Then he teamed up with Ray Lee, whose family was in the electrics business, and opened himself up to helpful advice. Today, he makes RAYCON earbuds. Not only is the company generating real revenue, but it’s products are loved by both celebrities and YouTube tech reviewers.

Ray J and Ray Lee are the founders of Raycon, a wireless audio brand.
