MOBILE COUNTY, ALA. (WALA)- Two teenagers are proving you don't have to graduate college or even high school to start your own business.

Caleb Booth and Wyatt Horne going from best friends to business partners.

Horne said, "Me and him just thought about it and we just started drawing stuff and it happened."

The two Mary G. Montgomery High School freshmen created their own logo, trademarked it, then put it on t-shirts and hats and started selling it. The clothing is already a hit.

"We're doing pretty good. We sold nearly 40% of it all," Booth said.

Horne added, "It's going way better than I thought it was going to go. I thought I was going to go slow but we've been up for two almost 3 weeks and we saw that much stuff."

Cool clothing with an even better message behind it.

"Don't hesitate to do the right thing even when it's tough," the two teenagers said.

A message making their family proud.

Wyatt's step mother, Karleigh Horne said, "Our youth is our future so I feel like helping them get started, maybe showing other kids, kids parents, it's not crazy to help a young kid start a business. I think it's going to be successful.

And hopefully bringing some good to their community.

Booth said, "I'm pretty excited about it because it's our own thing. We came up with it. We get to wear it and get the word out there."

"Not everybody has the opportunity to do it and I guess we're setting a good example for people that want to do stuff like this," said Horne.

The clothing is already being sold at boutiques in Mobile County. They also have a Facebook page with their clothing.
