Enough billion-dollar companies like Apple, Microsoft and Amazon have gotten their start in garages that it's easy to start thinking about the space once reserved for cars as a breeding ground for great business ideas.

Born the son of a factory worker in Chatham, Ontario, Myers had to work from an early age to supplement his family's income.
"When I was 6-years-old I was pouring yards and yards of cement — I knew how to pour cement better than most 20-year-olds," he says. "If I wanted to have a motorcycle when I was 16-years-old, I had to figure out a way to earn the money."
