New Store in Waterville – Techy Owner is A Teenager
Have to think you’ve heard the old tech gag.
I can’t figure out my cell phone, or computer, but there’s a little kid down the street who can help me out
Well, now that kid has opened a store
Always nice when we can welcome a new business into the area. For some, a tech store is just what is needed. And one of the expert technicians is 14 years old.
And he’s the owner.
Techy is the store. It is in Waterville in a location that used to be Verizon.
Parker Redlevski is the teen age owner. And he has a history with that store. When it was Verizon, his Mom met his stepfather there. So as a 5 year old he spent time in that store.
He got interested in fixing people’s phones. And was asked to go to a business conference with his stepfather. There he networked and talked about the same things the adults were talking about, and voila.
Fast forward, and he is the owner and a techy at Techy.
Pretty ambitious for a young teenager. But it sounds like he’s got it all figured out.
Hoping to inspire others he told WABI-TV5
Find what you love doing and turn that into a job
Very sage advice indeed.
Techy is located at 110 Elm Plaza in Waterville.
