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.


When flutist Nancy Shinn decided to take a class in flute repair from Dr. Eldred Spell at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, she had no idea that it would change the course of her life. Because flutes have so many keys, they are complicated to repair.

People from all over the country send their instruments to Shinn to repair. She also sells flutes that she has bought and fixed to folks as far away as Alaska. She offers free advice via phone or e-mail to those who are researching different brands of flutes.

Most of Shinn’s business comes from her Web site, and she charges $60 per hour, and she doesn’t give quotes until she has the instrument in hand.

Thanks to Chuck Huckaby for the story tip.
