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.


Although revenue increased by 35 percent compared to the same quarter last year, net income for eBay moved down by three percent as stock-based compensation expenses impacted the bottom line.

EBay has not accounted for stock options before in its financial numbers. By treating the $58.3 million of stock-based compensation as an expense, net income for the first quarter dropped to $248.3 million or 17 cents per share.

The company’s revenue boomed during the period. EBay disclosed $1.39 billion for the quarter. That and the earnings per share both exceeded eBay’s own high-end of guidance they had provided to investors and analysts.
