I was just wondering Who is the youngest electrical contractor? Or how old you were when you started your business. I passed the test and started my company when I was 23 years old. I just turned 25 today, and my business is going very well. Lets here some other peoples stories.

I got 'brainwashed' into this trade by my father. Since age of 5 every summer, he used to take me to the job to install plates, plugs and switches and stuff. I used to think it was 'fun', little did I know I was being used as a little slave, hahaha. I got my license 10 years ago at 22 years of age, (I had to wait for my older brother to get his ticket or I would have gotten it younger) so that makes me 32 years old. My dad still runs the company until he feels like retiring.
