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.

Toledo Blade:

What do you get when you combine body stickers and the safe non-toxic ingredient found in tanning agents?

A sunless tanning tattoo called TanArt.

Paul Bakken of Springfield Township is the co-inventor of the adhesive stickers, that when applied, slowly darken the skin without going into the sun.

The local product was hatched in the mid-1990s when Mr. Bakken and his business partner, Scott Billings, were running a printing company in the Chicago area. They obtained a patent in 2003 and began selling it in May, 2006.

It is intended for children ages 5-years-old and up, but has attracted teenage buyers and young moms, Mr. Bakken said.
