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.

Sierra Vista Herald:

The dumb waiter has evolved with one local man’s invention.

Patrick Schmitt has his patent pending for “My Personal Waiter,” a motorized lowering device for kitchen cabinets.

The “waiter” works like an elevator for your dishes or canned foods. With flip of a switch, the shelves are lowered down toward the kitchen counter within the reach of most people.

The idea came to him in 2001 as a better alternative to the step stools his mother-in-law used to reach her cabinet’s high shelves.

“I was worried that she could fall,” he said.

You can find out more about Schmitt’s invention, and see a video of it in action, at SchmittsSpecialtyProducts.com.
