Welcome to The Quiet Living Room, a podcast by the Quiet Social Club, where founder Iliana Grosse-Buening discusses and explores ideas on how to live and work well in a digital world. In this podcast Iliana interviews Kenneth Schlenker, founder and CEO of Opal. Kenneth founded Opal in 2020 with a mission to help 1 billion people focus better day to day so they can accomplish their dreams.
Opal is an innovative screen time management app that helps people take back control of their time so they can focus on what matters most to them. It allows you to measure, understand, and manage your focus while blocking out distracting apps and websites. Opal uses Apple’s local VPN technology to monitor and disconnect specific services to block access. Exactly which apps or websites it will block, and when, is completely up to you.
