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.

United Inventors Association:

1. Stay away from invention marketing companies that advertise on radio and late night TV.

2. Keep good records about your idea . . . some day they may be the back up you need to prove YOUR idea is YOURS!

3. Go to a Patent Depository Library and do your own patent search. If you find that your invention is already patented, there’s no need to go to a patent attorney.

4. Build a model. No need to get fancy at first. . . cardboard, white glue, balsa wood, off-the shelf parts.

5. Have your invention evaluated by a non-biased professional (even if your Mom’s in the business, go to someone else!)
