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.

The Shreveport Times:

Stay-at-home moms Amber Raines and Tammy Mayeaux know just how expensive it can be to add a little pretty to the most darling of outfits.

Raines spent nearly $200 once buying hair bows for her three daughters. But that was until two summers ago, when the crafty mother of four and Mayeaux, the mother of two, got the idea to use their creativity to launch their own business.

Together the two formed Two Chicks Bow-tique — an at-home business where the two create hair bows for girls.

Like many working moms or “mompreneurs” nationwide, Raines and Mayeaux chose to stay home with their children in addition to earn an income.

“It can be easy to make extra income from home if you find the right products,” Raines said.

Though there are no statistics for stay-at-home-moms, according to the U.S. Department of Labor and Bureau of Labor Statistics, 21 percent of employed people 15 years of age and older worked from home in 2006.
