The Simi Sara Show – March 29, 2013 – Hour 1

In our last segment, Simi and Benjamin Tal discussed the difficulties that Generation Y faces due to increasing prices and lower salaries. However, what if you are trying to start up a business on your own? If most of Generation Y can barely make ends meet, how will they be able to start up their own business? Our next guest, Mike Miltimore won an internet strategy grant from the Business Development Bank of Canada last year for his innovative technique for building stronger, better guitars in a fraction of the time. Prior to winning, Miltimore was having trouble getting his innovative idea off the groundand had to meet the challenges of being a young person and building a business head on. Despite the not very promising statistics, how did he do it?
