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.


We’ve all heard the story — a regular guy works at a Wall Street firm studying market trends. He sees a trend that no one else has spotted and begins to daydream about starting his own business. He decides to take the leap. He packs up his stuff and quits his job.

Later, the Wall Street worker sets up a home office in his two-bedroom house feeling free at last.. He runs extension cords out to the garage to operate his computers and uses doors from Home Depot as desks. He brings his wife into the business and hits his folks up for a sizable investment.

Life is pretty chaotic, but it soon pays off. A month later, this guy is selling product in all 50 states and 45 countries. Two months later, he’s bringing in $20,000 a week in revenue.
