The 10 Year Old CEO

Posted: March 21, 2011 in PR Connections, Public Relations

I was amazed when I saw this. A 10 year old CEO of a company? No way.

Then I continued to read. Hannah Altman, CEO of Hannah’s Cool World, was on the front page of a AOL at just ten years old. According to the article “It isn’t easy being a kid CEO”, she says. She puts in about five hours a week, working an hour a day after school each day. She sometimes helps fill orders, but spends most of her time looking up new products that would sell well on her website.

I thought this was amazing. A ten year old taking enough initiative to get work done at such an early age. I have a strong feeling that Hannah will go very far early on in her career if she is already started now. This is the kind of things and events that give me hope.

    This is crazy! Crazy cool, that is. I would love to have been able to be a CEO of a company at 10. It is mind-boggling to think of the things that some kids are able to accomplish. I saw a story on Glenn Beck’s show about a 12 year old boy who was autistic, but he was a mathematician. He was in college classes even at his young age and had skipped 7 grades!
