Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast is officially the youngest person that I have had on the show…but wow what an entrepreneur Henry Miller 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, Henry Miller 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 has created an industry that is now present in 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 take 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 let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only Henry Miller
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How moving from California to Washington state was such a difficult transition for him to deal with as a child!
How the plights of the honey bees is so unbelievably serious to the survival of mankind!
How after his appearance on Shark Tank he got marriage proposals on twitter!
How he doesn’t believe in settling and will always go out and try his hardest to achieve!
How he has worn orange socks everyday since he was two years old…(I hope they aren’t the same pair of socks though!)
