Lest you assume that the RIM services world – especially in the multi-service record center part of the industry – is lacking in new entreprenuerial start-ups… today’s show might change your mind.
My guest today is someone who came into the industry with absolutely NO connection to it… fact is he didn’t even know what it was or that it even existed.
He was a cattle farmer from a small town south of Calgary. Today he's a few short years building his record center business. Bruce Nilsson started File Solutions in the agricultural town of Lethbridge, Alberta with his cousin. Bruce started the business after selling the family farm of five generations. But, you need to listen to him tell the story.
I hope you are encouraged, inspired or maybe just reminded about the greatness of the entrepreneurial spirit that is evident in Bruce
