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.


It all started when Juan Pineda was a victim of mail theft.

Valuable checks were lost in that theft, but Juan may have the last profitable laugh.

He’s invented a device that sets off an alarm if a mailbox is tampered with. He got a patent for his product and is seeking a manufacturer to handle the production and marketing.

It operates much like a car alarm that begins ringing when a car is bumped. A remote turns off that alarm. A card slider, like the ones used in store checkout lines, would allow a mailman to de-activate the alarm.

“Everyone works hard for a living. They should have peace of mind in regards to their mailbox”, said Pineda.
