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.


There are over 7 million patents registered in the United States, a great number of which describe practical inventions designed for use by everyday, ordinary human beings.

Then there’s the “guy” stuff.

Ideas so lunkheaded and irrational they could only have come from that tiny portion of a guy’s brain not dedicated to scratching himself.
