An "Overnight Business Success" Story - CarProof

Friends In Wonder

Jan 12 2023 • 34 mins

Until 2000, Canada had nothing similar to CarFax, the popular US vehicle history report company.  But then, a small group of partners ran into a problem while importing vehicles to the US. In this episode, one of those partners -- co-host Joe Luther -- shares the captivating story of his most financially prosperous business venture. It's an entrepreneurial adventure about recognizing the need for a product in a challenging market and having the commitment, resilience, and good fortune to create the successful solution.
