Life gets interesting early for some people. Mark Zuckerberg invented Facebook when he was 20, was a billionaire by 23 and had a movie made about him by 26. For more of us, it takes a lifetime to build a story.

Not that he was a beach bum. He served in the Navy during Vietnam and rose to the rank of commander in the Coast Guard Reserves. He earned two degrees in business. He worked at the Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Navy Yard. During those years, he was seeped in nautical culture.
