charged the customer $200 and paid a person $100 to do the work. And they're all his ideas. My husband and I are sure that Ryan has to understand everything he's doing. If I did it for him, it would be my company."
All along, Ryan has been investing his profit in real estate. Today he owns six buildings in Ontario and British Columbia; his personal net worth is $900,000. Ryan has also bought a hockey rink and basketball court for his family, and some 4,000 books for himself. But no mobile phone: parents won't allow it. "His friends in school don't believe he's a businessman", says Savannah. "They think it's nonsense."
But Tiny Trump's ambitions go beyond real estate. "I want to buy two National Hockey League teams," Ryan tells Metro. "That way I can play in the NHL."
Explains Savannah: "Ryan thinks hockey is all fun. But he has to understand the business side, so now we're setting up meetings with NHL owners. They think it's very cute."

Taylor French: I wish I'd started younger. I started in my teens, but I wish I'd started this early!
My childhood was full of boredom. At least I'd have had something to do.
Ashley Wright: Ha, ha, what is the world coming too?!!
JasonP: Good for this kid. But he'll regret it when he's older. He's never spent time actually being a kid. Another Michael Jackson...
Andrew Maul: I was 9 when I built my first website and was making money, but I wasn't buying real estate and hockey rinks, I can't even imagine doing that on my own.
Popstar: Maybe it's just me, but I think it's pretty sad. His parents should let him enjoy his childhood. He'll have enough time to get crazy about money when he's older.
Black Hat Cat: How do you know he isn't enjoying his childhood?
