Heavy machine demolishing a work site.

14-year-old Lance Matheson runs his own demolition company, Sage Demolition and Land Clearing, near Salt Lake City alongside his family. The Volvo website says Matheson grew up around heavy equipment for as long as he can remember. He demolished his first house at age 12, and carries a state-issued engineering/demolition license and general contractor's license.

The Volvo website also says that as baby boomers retire and skilled trades struggle to come back from the late 2000s recession, Matheson is “setting an example” for how rewarding the construction industry can be.
