I live in Chicagoland and that means snow in the winter. Snow – sometimes a lot – provides a simple business idea for winter – snow removal. From clearing sidewalks and driveways to driving a pick-up truck with a snow blade in front, you can make serious money in areas that get snow and ice.
Chicago already had a snow storm two weeks ago and our area got about 12 inches of the heavy white stuff. Snow might look nice falling and when it first covers the ground, but pulling out the snowblower and having it ice up because of wet snow and cold temperatures is no fun.
I guarantee people will pay you to do the work for them. This is true of businesses, too. Parking lots needed clearing and salt put down to dissolve the ice. Slips and falls on private property often end up in court. Nobody wants to deal with that mess.
The next time it snows, put on your cold weather gear and look at your neighbors for opportunities. Odds are good that if they are older or if people are at work, they won’t want to come home and have to clear the drive in the dark and cold. Charge them a reasonable rate and be sure to cover your fuel cost and any maintenance issue. Snow removal – a perfect start-up business idea for winter.
What is your website ranking? What is the site’s value? How much should it earn? These questions and more are answered at hypestat.com.
Naturally, I was curious about Homepreneurs. I’ve blogged for several years and was always curious about the ranking. Here are my results:
homepreneurs receives about 64 unique visitors and 64 (1.00 per visitor) page views per day which should earn about $0.52/day from advertising revenue. Estimated site value is $392.92. According to Alexa Traffic Rank homepreneurs.net is ranked number 5,534,931 in the world and 1.4E-5% of global Internet users visit it. This site has Google page rank of 1. Site is hosted in Scottsdale, AZ, 85260, United States and links to network IP address 126.96.36.199.
I think the best result is that Homepreneurs has a Google page rank of 1. Can’t beat that for anything. Everyone wants to get on that first page of Google’s results.
The money is secondary to me – I am more interested in helping others be successful. This is why I launched Homepreneurs some 6 years ago.
How did I do it? Timing, good content, social media, and lots of work. You can read more in my recent eBook: Blog Better. It is available on Amazon.
You can do the same, with time and effort. Use hypestat.com and find your website ranking. 😉

Are eBooks the ultimate home business? They are easy to do, inexpensive, and can be done from your living room or on the beach.
I made some money from eBooks last year and you can too. Not bunches of money, but my eBooks are cheap and I don’t publish much. The best part about this? The money from these eBooks will keep coming in, month after month.
The two 1099 tax reports below are from Smashwords – Amazon and Google are yet to arrive. Smashwords distributes to Apple, Barnes and Noble, and others.
There are two reports, one for non-fiction, one for fiction where I use a pen name.
Amazon and Google have the same eBooks for comparison and I will report those sales when possible.
If I can do this, you can do this and make MONEY!
