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.


Meredith Bush plans on putting the $10,000 saving bond towards college – or maybe a car – if she wins the third annual Bubble Wrap Competition for Young Inventors.

The 12-year-old inventor created a system for helping her grandmother remember what pills to take and when to take them using Bubble Wrap.

“I made a calendar of my grandmother medication because she takes so many she doesn’t usually remember what she’s taken and when she’s taken it,” Bush said.

The packaging material encases the pills and labels them by color, the name of the medication and the correct time to take the medication.

“Whenever my grandma takes her medication, she can just pop the bubble and it will help her remember,” she said.

Bush is one of 15 semi-finalists in the competition and is already guaranteed a $500 saving bond. More than 2,000 students in grades 5 though 8 entered nationwide.
