Last year, Your Morning sat down with Judah Tyreman, a Saskatchewan teen whose rock and mineral museum had been recently broken into, robbed and vandalized. After receiving a lot of support and doing even more fundraising, Judah was not only able to replace the rocks, but also grow his museum even more.
As it expands, Judah returns to talk about his innovative experience, and how he is inspiring others with his story in his new book, Using Your Sense to Make a Dollar that he wrote with some help from his father Christopher. Described as ‘a powerful step by step guide to help young and old develop the skills to be innovators in our modern world while creating personal wealth’, Judah’s book is particularly aimed at young innovators like himself.
Having started the museum using the front room of a building he is leasing on Main Street in Radisson, Judah later expanded it into the back room and now plans to open up the upper floor as his collection grows. Calling himself an ‘innovator’ rather than an entrepreneur, Tyreman maintains and funds the museum entirely from sales and donations alone.
The University of Saskatchewan named Judah one of their Entrepreneurs of the Year in 2018.
