My story isn’t much different than many others; maybe even yours. I grew up on a small hobby farm in rural Ontario, Canada. I learned about hard work and business at an early age. I helped with my older sister’s newspaper route before I was 12. By age 14 I had my own 123 customer route that took me trudging along miles of country roads in winter snow and summer heat. As a young teen I ran a greenhouse, growing vegetables to sell in my neighborhood. During my high school years I drove hundreds of miles on weekends to attend antique shows as a vendor.
