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.

ant Farm


“When we first made this, I didn’t know what the hell ants were,’ said 92-year-old Milton Levine, better known as “Uncle Milton,” who is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his original ant farm.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be 50 years,? he said. “Never. And here we are.?

In an industry where toys are a hit if they last more than a single season, the ant farm’s success rates right up there with the Etch-a-Sketch and the Slinky.

“Anybody you talk to,? said Levine, “especially guys your age: ‘Did you have an ant farm? Sure I had an ant farm.’ And now grandparents are buying them for their kids. Fifty years is a long time!?
