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.


A makeshift mannequin that failed to fool police monitoring a high-occupancy-vehicle lane fetched $15,000 in an eBay auction, and the proceeds will go to charity, the buyer has announced.

Denver-based Video Professor bought the Styrofoam head, coat hanger and clothing stuffed with newspapers from HOV scofflaw Greg Pringle, 53, of Broomfield, Colo., said Brian Olson, a company spokesman.

As part of his sentence handed down earlier this month, Pringle agreed to donate any profits from a Web site — launched to free “Tillieâ€? after she was impounded by police — and the auction to the Alive At 25 driver safety awareness program.

“We’ve rescued Tillie from a life of crime, and we hope to rehabilitate her so she can be a contributing dummy to our society,â€? Olson said.

Pringle was fined $115 and ordered to hold a sign reading “HOV lane not for dummiesâ€? alongside U.S. 36 for four hours. He was pulled over and ticketed Jan. 26 for driving in the lane reserved for carpools, motorcycles, buses and hybrid vehicles.
