Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Mary Schmidt:

Don’t we all wish that life was as tidy as biz school case studies? Well, it’s not. It’s also not fair, and smart people do stupid things. All of which should be factored into real-world business planning.

Thus, my idea: MBA the board game! Instead of systematically working a case with defined variables and assumptions – people would learn to think on their feet and turn on a dime. Depending on the roll of the dice and cards chosen – the students would have to deal with everything from natural disasters…to global economic changes… to the start-up founder’s sudden death in the middle of the crucial first investment round (something that really happened to one of my clients.) The professors could have great fun coming up with new things for every game or turn.
