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.


You may have seen the Mary Kay commercials on TV or the Mona Vie stickers on rear windshields around town and wondered whether starting your own direct selling business could mean more money for you.

Madera mom Maribel Alvarado is an Avon lady. She works from home about two hours a day and said the extra income has given her family a lot more financial flexibility. “The profit that could be produced from the business was just amazing to me because I thought, wow, I can’t believe I can make this much money just selling out of the brochure.”

Despite the economic downturn she said she’s grown her business by $20,000 dollars compared to last year! “You can’t get fired; you can’t get laid-off, because it’s your own business. You can give yourself a raise, though. All you have to do is increase your sales,” said Alvarado.

Now Maribel mentors other Avon reps, including her friend Norma Garcia. “I was able to purchase a new vehicle and pay for the vehicle with my Avon earnings,” said Garcia.
