Younger teacher, older students.

I'm going to be teaching a business class and I'll be at least 10 years younger than any of my students. Any tips?

I'm confident in the material and have no problems with public speaking. My only concern is that the students might think I'm too young to be taken seriously.
I'm not looking to demand respect and I really look forward to hearing stories and specific case studies from the students (they're all professionals).
Is there anything I can do from the get-go to make things run as smooth as they can? Anecdotes are more than welcome.
