Episode 5 - Bill Mont - From Grade 6 to Self-Made Millionaire

Bill Mont, a self-made millionaire, grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia dirt poor!

He spent time in a reform school for boys because his family couldn’t afford pencils and school supplies, so he quit going to school.

Ultimately, he made it to the sixth grade, when his stepmother said he had to leave school, to help support the family.

He worked on the railroad and the docks, in Anaheim California, came back to Halifax, started the first flea markets in Nova Scotia, bought 2 castles – one in Ireland, the other, Olsen Castle in Halifax.

At 90 years old, he’s still looking for new ventures!!!
