Teenagers Own Their Very Own Business

You would think Sydney Rieckhoff was just your server.

"This is called 'the chill', and we serve chocolate shop ice cream here,” Sydney said.

But, this isn't just a typical summer job for Sydney.

"People are pretty amazed when they hear that i own it,” she said.

And you heard right -- the scheduling, the ordering, and yes, even the firing...

"It’s kind of awkward when i have to see them in school,” Sydney said.

She's 15! And she already owns a business at the Newbo market.

And she does pretty well.

But don't tell that to her younger brother carter.

"People come and visit, and they're like, 'where's the owner of this business?' and everybody points at me, and I’m like yeah,” carter said.

He owns CR popcorn...every 11-year-old's dream right?

"I have always loved popcorn since the day I could eat it, so yeah,” he said.

Though business often is an adult's game...

"this is just my starting business,” carter said.

"this is going really well, so I don't know. Maybe I’ll open a couple other stores or something,” Sydney said.

These kids are clearly holding their own.
