[MY GUEST]: Beniamin (Ben) Humble was born in 1985 in Romania, at a time when the country was under communist rule. His family escaped before the revolution and landed in an Austrian refugee camp in 1990. After immigrating to Canada and eventually reuniting with his siblings, Ben developed a passion for life and a gratitude mindset. His parents’ sacrifice for a better life developed a deep sense of responsibility within him early on in life. He dreamt of building an empire: motivating, entertaining, and investing in other people.
The oldest of nine children, Ben grew up quickly and helped manage the household. His parents juggled several jobs to provide for their growing family. Although he didn’t have luxuries, Ben wouldn’t trade his upbringing for anything. His father became a pastor at their church and his mother, a restaurant owner. His father’s love of people and his mother’s unrelenting drive shaped Ben’s view of the world and his own ambitions.
Ben discovered his passion for music at a young age, playing piano in church, which continued into his adult life. Always challenging the status quo, Ben is always pushing boundaries and asking, “what’s next”? Twenty years later, Ben has developed the largest private mortgage company in southwestern Ontario, with a mission to serve young families and make homeownership possible. Exiting the ‘rat race’ at 30 years old was just the beginning for Ben.
