Roundabout way to pounds 1bn.

Byline: eamonn holmes

A DUTCH couple have proved that if at first you don't succeed, then try, try again.

Harold and Corinne Goddijn, who are the brains behind the world-famous satnav Tom Tom, have just joined the rich list with an estimated fortune of pounds 1 billion.

Their first venture was an electronic cookbook which didn't take off, so it was put on the back burner. Then came the plug-in bible, which to be honest didn't really have a prayer.

They then came up with the idea of the satellite navigation system which really did set them off in the right direction.

In fact, you could say they are now well and truly on the road to success.
