It takes a lot of work for Olen Batchelor to run his business, but it has its rewards. Like making money, for example, while sitting in his back yard, throwing a tennis ball for his dogs to chase.

Batchelor quit his job as a graphic designer to become a Colorado ski instructor and spend most of his time outdoors. When he moved to Memphis for family reasons he quickly tired of the endless indoor hours required for restaurant management, and soon started his own business selling items on eBay.
