Danny Rinaldi/ Harmonix
A multi-million dollar sales executive and entrepreneur, Danny Rinaldi, Founder and CEO of Harmonix, had been traveling back and forth to China for business and his body clock was struggling with the constant change.Â It was tough and it took time to make the adjustment to changing time zones. Add to that the burden that most Americans feel every day â€“ stress from work.Â In Dannyâ€™s case, his anxiety came from the pressure of selling the toys he made to some of the biggest retail chains in the world.
It was the search for his own natural sleep solution that led Danny to develop Sleep Formula 39â„¢Â and launch Harmonix, LLC in 2011.
Throughout his career Danny has developed brands and managed fast-paced, high-growth, public and private businesses. Â He has generated revenues of more than $100 million in technology and consumer-packaged goods for Texas Instruments, Atari and Telxon Corporation.Â As the founder and partner of his own companies, he has established a network of 18 sales representatives who call on all major retailers including Costco, Wal-Mart, Target, CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Samâ€™s Club and BJâ€™s Wholesale Club.
