14-year-old Ben Weissenstein saw an opportunity while helping his mother prepare for a garage sale one day. After hours of organizing and sorting items for the sale, Ben decided to turn this work into a micro business! His business, Grand Slam Garage Sales, helps customers prepare for their own garage sales. The business skyrocketed and grew to employ over 30 part time workers! Now 19, Ben is ready to establish new Grand Slam Garages Sales franchises across his native Arizona. Ben’s advice? “Always learn, change, and grow with your business.” Ben saw a need, and now his micro business is taking off!
