'Starting a business isn't that hard', says Ryan Hickman, 7 years old and CEO of 'Ryan’s Recycling Company'. At the age of 3 he went with his father to recycle for the first time. After sorting out his bottles and cans, he became obsessed with recycling, and how it can help save the environment, so that is how it all started. Today Ryan has disposed of more than 200,000 bottles and cans and earned about $21,000 that he intends to put towards buying his own garbage truck. Age should not define whether we take that good idea and make it into a business. This is true whether you are 3 or 103.
