Citizen editor: Let's home record store Tom finds his groove with his new business aged 16
TOMORROW, thousands of students will be finding out their GCSE grades.
But while many will be heading back to the classroom, Tom Smith is a getting a few lessons in the business world instead.
Staying in education is not for everyone and what a refreshing approach by his dad to allow him to open up his record store and make his way in the world.
This would not be the route for everyone, but it will certainly teach him about budgets, promotions, customer service and just generally how to build something from scratch. Plus his passion also happens to be a great little business.

GLOUCESTER player Henry Berry brought war and rugby together when he died during the First World War aged just 32. He was one of thousands of Glosters killed during this conflict.
In 2013, almost a century after his death, the city charity Rugby For Heroes aims to help our modern soldiers affected by war. That is why we have thrown our weight behind the cricket challenge.
Plus it is a great day out and a chance for readers to play against Gloucester greats – albeit with leather on willow.
WHEN you first pass your test, confidence behind the wheel does not come naturally to us all and statistics show a quarter of young drivers are involved in crashes.
The Pass Plus scheme is a great way of instilling more experience and skill into someone before they get behind the wheel so perhaps it is time it was compulsory.
