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.


EBay Inc. said on Thursday the head of its PayPal unit will leave the Web auctioneer in a surprise shake-up that closely follows Google Inc.’s (GOOG.O: Quote, Profile, Research) unveiling of a rival payment service.

Shares in eBay (EBAY.O: Quote, Profile, Research) fell more than 5 percent to their lowest since 2003 on the departure of Jeff Jordan, 47, once seen as a potential successor to Chief Executive Meg Whitman.


Investors worry about mounting challenges to eBay as Google Checkout takes aim at the same merchants PayPal targets.

“It seems like no matter where you look, there are uncertainties,” said Standard & Poor’s analyst Scott Kessler.

Jordan, who led eBay North America until 2004 after joining in 1999, will leave in the autumn after running PayPal for nearly two years.
