Ted Roger's Funeral Today

I have enjoyed reading about Ted Rogers over the past few days. I was surprised when I read the following today:

"Rogers founded Rogers Telecommunications Ltd. in 1960 with the purchase of CHFI while in law school with a loan of $85,000. Today, the company is worth more than $20 billion and employs 24,000 employees."

Is this not an amazing success story? I have had many readers ask me about alternative legal careers. Ted obviously had vision, and I would venture to say that the skills that he developed in law school proved useful during his immensely successful business career.
