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.

The Tampa Tribune:

Faye Dowdell looks for any edge she can find in today’s gloomy economy.

Dowdell spent the morning at the Tampa Port Authority office for the first installment of the NFL’s Super Bowl XLIII Playbook for Small Business Workshop Series. The free workshops are designed to help local small and minority businesses.

The NFL’s business workshops are so popular that organizers added second sessions to each of the three seminars. That means nearly 900 small business owners will participate, about twice as many as during last season’s Super Bowl in Arizona.

“Certainly the economic situation has made people look for every opportunity,” said Tisha Ford, who heads the NFL’s Emerging Business Program. The program helps local businesses owned by women and minorities land contracts with Super Bowl vendors. “People are participating to build relationships to get them through these difficult times.”
