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.


Two stay-at-home moms turned entrepreneurs are responsible for bringing Peoria’s Park West shopping center its first farmers market.

Shoppers’ growing desire for local and organic produce prompted managers of the retail center, near Northern Avenue and the Loop 101, to coordinate a market there in October.

They enlisted Peoria resident Christa Esquibel and her sister-in-law Emy Porter, the founders of Momma’s Organic Market, or M.O.M., to recruit about 30 vendors for a kid-friendly shopping experience.

The market is a regular fixture at Park West on the third Saturday of each month, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors include farmers, jewelry designers and face painters.
