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.


Loudoun Connection:

After six years of working at AOL, Lynette Meglio was burnt out. The South Riding mother of two realized she could no longer keep up the pace she was running. “I was going a million miles a minute,” she said. “I was a walking zombie.”

So, Meglio decided to stay home with her children, Mallory, then 3, and Michael, then 18 months. But after two years as a stay-at-home mom, Meglio started to feel the pull of working again.

“I really struggled with how do I use my skills as a worker and still stay accessible to my kids?” the Bergen County, N.J., native said.

Her solution? TheMomLink.com, a Web site dedicated to helping South Riding stay-at-home moms connect with local businesses and with each other. “I figured there must be other moms out there in the same boat as me,” Meglio said.

Putting her AOL marketing skills to work, Meglio created a Web site where local businesses could advertise and connect directly with some of the biggest consumers: mothers.
