Selling Snow: How One Couple Built a Booming Side Business From Boston's Biggest Blizzard

It was snowing. A lot. Boston was in the midst of a blizzard, receiving the most snow ever in recorded history. Kyle and Jessica Waring were stranded in their apartment, racking their brains for something to do. Then, they landed on an idea. What if they sold the snow outside their apartment and shipped it to anyone in the country? It'd be hilarious -- and might turn into a viable business opportunity. Within weeks, their business went viral. Orders were piling up. Top media outlets from across the country were talking about it. And Kyle and Jessica were having a blast. A year later, the fun hasn't stopped. They've launched several other lines of business shipping foliage and coal -- all while working 9-5 jobs.
