Setting a good example

When we read about Thomas Cahill, we couldn't help but be impressed. The guy's a junior at New Jersey's Hillsborough High School, yet he already owns his own landscaping business—Cahill Landscaping.

Now he's been selected as the recipient of the 2012 Young Entrepreneur Award, presented every year by the Somerset County Business Partnership in his region. The award acknowledges achievement and encourages the development of business skills.

According to the local paper, the Hillsborough Beacon, Cahill first got into tractors at the age of 4 and attracted his first lawn care clientele at age 13. The paper went on to say that the 17-year-old Cahill, in his fourth year of business, will donate between 10 and 15 percent of his 2012 earnings to charity.

He'll be awarded the Anthony F. Picheca Sr. Entrepreneur Award of $1,000 on Dec. 13. Hats off, Thomas!

That all came together nicely! Seems whenever I "try" to think outside the box, it winds up looking like it needs to be boxed up! I have no vision!!!!
