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 multi-billion dollar franchise industry is bracing itself for a backlash following the recent Green Acres scandal.

The Serious Fraud Office is investigating after 200 people lost millions buying fake ironing franchises, damaging the reputation of franchising and raising questions about whether tougher rules are needed.

Battery World is New Zealand’s latest franchise opportunity in a society becoming more and more dependent on batteries.

General manager James Nixon-Smith says the franchise has experienced significant growth in Australia and thinks ‘there’s tremendous potential’.

Battery World is joining 1 of the world’s most franchised markets – from coffee shops to corporate cabs, Kiwibank to Caci clinics and from fast food to Fastway – the world’s largest courier franchise. More.
