Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the Steve Jobss inspired business interview is officially the youngest person that I have had on the show...but wow what an entrepreneur he is.
When he was 12 years old instead of asking for a Xbox, or bike like most kids his age, he instead asked for a beehive.
You see he had learnt about Colony Collapse Disorder from a beekeeper and wanted to make a difference.
Yes, he did grow up on a farm, but that is still something that lets be honest is a strange thing to ask for even from such a well grounded and well raised lad.
So he started selling honey by the side of the road to raise money and from that one beehive, our guest found the motivation to create an industry that is now present in stores across the United States of America.
Like all the best ideas its a simple one.
Having too much honey for his family to consume he started experimenting with the substance by adding spices...and BAM he created Henrys Humdingers.
But how did he do it?
How did he at such an early age continue his education whilst taking on the business world and win?
What made him so caring to the plight of an insect that for many of us, we just flip away with our hands whenever they come near?
Well lets find out as we start Joining Up Dots in todays interview with the inspirational teenage entrepreneur himself Mr Henry Miller
