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.

Bay City Times:

More than 20 years ago, Tony Gutierrez dreamed of making a piece of jewelry that could double as a bar tool.

Today, his dreams are coming true.

Gutierrez, now lives in Las Vegas, where his invention, the Bottle Ring Opener, has taken off.

The Bottle Ring Opener is just what it sounds like: a bottle opener you wear as a ring. The ring looks like jewelry from the top of the hand, but on the underside is a small bottle-opening tool.

Made of coated aluminum, the rings come in several sizes and can have customized logos.

They won’t appear in stores until later this year, but they are available online for $9.99 at Bottleringopener.com. Since the site launched on June 8, about 50 rings have sold a day, Gutierrez said.

For now, he isn’t concerned about the product’s profit as much as its purpose.

“People tell me ‘money, money, money,’” he said. “I don’t care about money. I just want people to have something of mine to enjoy. By having this company here, having something to do with me — I still can’t believe it. It’s huge.”
