528 Jenna Zigler: Mission Mojo
There comes a moment in every entrepreneurs’ life where a passion, a mission-driven practice or a talent turns into a business.
The spark comes often when we realize we can help many more people, often millions more, when we apply our purpose to growing a business.
Jenna Zigler says she “didn’t even know what an entrepreneur was” until she became one.
Today Jenna shares how she started out as an optometrist and before long realized she could help more people in business than she could seeing patients one-on-one. So, she took the entrepreneurial leap and co-founded EyeLove with her husband. We talk about what it takes to start and scale a business, why success always begins with a mission, and how Jenna is using her business to “give forward” to help those in need with the Eye Love Cares Foundation.
- How mission is the spark to inspire a profitable business
- Why Jenna puts profits from her business into a nonprofit foundation to further her mission
- Why mission is the thing that will keep you moving forward even during the setbacks and challenges of entrepreneurship
- Why many pivots may be necessary to get to scale
- How to co-create with your customers as you build your company, so you stay laser-focused on their needs and solving their problems
- Why it’s vital to overcome perfectionism and allow yourself to be vulnerable in order to connect on a deeper level with customers
- How to overcome tragedy and deep personal grief, and why a supportive community of women is a necessity
- And more!

Dr. Jenna Zigler says she “didn’t even know what an entrepreneur was” until she became one. Jenna co-founded EyeLove so she could heal 1,000,000 dry eye sufferers naturally. She uses the profits from Eye Love to fund free and low-cost clinics in Jamaica and in the US – and also started a charity called the Eye Love Cares Foundation, which provides exams, glasses and sunglasses for those in need, free education, and scholarships for students that align with the mission.
Previously, Dr. Jenna owned two optometry practices, which were sold in 2017 to focus on Eye Love and her other brand, Heyedrate.
