Most teenagers might dream of making millions but not many are on their way to making it a reality.

But Charlie Heath, 17, is managing director of his own commercial cleaning company which he set up in partnership with his taxi driver dad and older brother.

The trio launched Heath Cleaning Contractors just a few months ago and have already secured contracts from businesses in central London.

Charlie, of Naseby Road, Dagenham, said: “I became more business minded when I was 14 or 15 – something just clicked.”

The hardworking teen, who also has full-time job working as a business development manager for a sister partner of Facebook, already has some other business ideas in the pipeline – watch this space.
