Frind, 30, doesn't seem like the sort of fellow who would run a market-leading anything.Quiet, soft-featured, and ordinary looking, he is the kind of person who can get lost in a roomful of people and who seems to take up less space than his large frame would suggest.In a way, he's thinking about the company all the time." rind spent his formative years on a grain farm in the northern hinterlands of British Columbia -- "the bush," in local parlance.His hometown, Hudson's Hope, is a cold, isolated place not far from the starting point of the Alaska Highway.Frind drops his bag and plops himself down in front of one of them. There's a 0,000 order waiting for his signature.
He builds his company by himself and from his apartment.Then, six minutes 38 seconds after beginning his workday, Frind closes his Web browser and announces, "All done." All done?

' He'll check people out in restaurants and watch how they interact.
