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.


If you’ve got a problem that needs solving, chances are others have the same problem–and the solution could spark a business for you.

Just ask Angie and David Porter, co-founders of Furminator Inc., who invented a tool that gets at pets’ undercoats to solve the problem of shedding. “It hit a chord with pet owners, and it addressed that problem,” says David.

Today, their de-shedding product line is sold at stores like PetSmart and Petco, pushing annual sales to $20 million.
