Does age matter? Is age a barrier to your success, or is it the key?

Join Ryan Thorne, founder and chief executive officer of Thorne Ambulance Service (SC), as he opens up to hostess Brett Lyle about his experiences as a young entrepreneur and business owner who is making his way, building a successful private ambulance organization in South Carolina.

Ryan shares stories about his challenges and successes in securing initial funding and how his upbringing and prior EMS experiences helped shape his passion for the industry and his vision for the organization. Ryan reveals the exact moment he decided to start his own ambulance company, shares the philosophies and practices that he has adopted for his agency and offers solutions for how to self-educate and stay competitive.
