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:
11-year-old Jason O’Neil recently became the youngest person to receive the Young Entrepreneur Award.
The 2007 winner was given the award by the Young Entrepreneurs of America, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating and motivating young entrepreneurs.
He turned a simple craft, which he calls Pencil Bugs, into a business when he was 9 years old.
He makes colorful, buglike pencil toppers by hand with help from his parents, along with matching laminated bookmarks and custom T-shirts; and has a book and video game in the works.
