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.

Irish Franchise Magazine:


During 2006, the franchise sector in Ireland showed sustained growth of at least 12 per cent, according to the Irish Franchise Association (IFA). There are now 260 systems in operation, with 2,500 franchisees/outlets and employing more than 22,000 people.
In addition, the IFA grew its membership base by 20 per cent, including new franchisors and franchise consultants. IFA Chairman, John Green, said: “Increased interest in franchising as a means of starting or expanding a business was evidenced by excellent attendances at our six regional franchisee seminars and presentations to third-level colleges, Enterprise Boards and business organisations. Our website is enjoying a record number of hits and the IFA has attracted good levels of publicity.
