Iowa teen Josh Beytien had an idea. In his senior year of high school, Josh was hired at the Dubuque Center for History. He had always had a love for history, but it was at this job that Josh discovered a new interest – scanning and organizing historic documents and images. Not interested in working a typical nine-to-five job, he soon realized that there was a local need for scanning and storing these documents. Just like that, Josh had himself a micro business! He now runs Mammoth Scanning Company, an online company dedicated to storing and classifying documents and images. After consulting with a local business professional, obtaining a few grants, and purchasing necessary equipment, Josh’s micro business took off running!
