Sell things you can get for free!

The best business model in the world: Sell something that you get for free!  There is no better business model.  

There is a lady that makes $40,000 a year selling tumbleweed.  Yes, tumbleweed.  She goes in her back yard (somewhere in kansas) picks up the tumbleweed and sells it.  Its true.  Our OFCG can check me on that one... or you can click here.

So, go out in your backyard (if you have one) and look for something that you can get for free.  Options of things you can get for free: grass, dirt, acorns, squirrels, air, rocks, branches, pine cones.  Collect the free items and sell them online.  Easy!

  1. Tumbleweed actually costs slightly more than zero. It also takes time to pick the stuff up, and then there are issues with storage. If you read the whole article, which is of course normally shunned here at HTMAD, you'll see that you'll see that she pays for shipping boxes and she pays her nephews and nieces to gather the stuff.

    Not a bad business model, except that you have to do something else. But if she's making that much out of 30 orders a week, we imagine she might do something else.
