There are certain types of stories that I am drawn to. One type involves regular people who have an idea and have it blossom beyond their wildest dreams. I recently found one about a woman who created website as a joke.
Imagine her surprise when she started receiving emails from people wanting to order products on her site.
What is she selling? Assorted sizes of tumbleweeds.
Linda Katz finds her tumbleweeds right outside of her house and she is making thousands of dollars a year as income from them.
…the orders just kept coming — an average of 15 per week. Though sheâ€™s coy about her annual income from tumbleweed wrangling, she says it is over $40,000 a year.

I imagine the press her company has received lately will help bring that income up a little bit. Even if it stayed at $40K/year, that’s pretty good money from something that started out as a joke!
