Profile Of A Legend: Karl H. Menzies from 7News Belize on Vimeo.

Karl H. Menzies is a brand name you may associate with Heineken Beer or Leyland Paints. But the real story is the man behind the name. Karl H. Menzies is a self-made success, who earned his fortune and fame the old fashioned way: he worked for it, from the age of 8! But you might not know, he never went higher than primary school, and had a hardscrabble upbringing in the Mesopotamia Area of Belize City as one of his father's 18 children.

In tonight's profile, he talks about this and some of the struggles he had to overcome to get this point.
