Students Open Video Game Store

Do you know any high schoolers that have their own business? On Hilton Head Island, two are doing just that. Hilton Head High seniors Win Laforce and Ben Mathews are in the School to Work program and are applying what they've learned in school.

They opened up iWin, new and used video game store. The best part of owning their own business? Being the boss.

"We figured if you're working for your own company, you can reward yourself," said Mathews. "It's better to push your own company than someone else's."

They've exceeded their goals but had to make sacrifices along the way. They actually had to sleep in the store while crews installed a security system.
