Fable: The Boy Who Repaired TVs

There was once a boy who was fascinated by TV. At the age of 13 he was repairing his neighbours’ TVs.

His first job was at a TV manufacturer.

“It was fantastic,” he says, “we were the first people in the UK to work on solid-state colour TVs and I was fortunate enough to be designing chips for them.”

Describing these ICs to the Royal Television Society brought him to the attention of a large US IC manufacturer who pursued him with job offers.

He joined a start-up, made millions and was knighted.

Moral: Love what you do
