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.


If fire protection kits can be upgraded with a splash of style, then why not first aid kits too? Canister UK’s new OW! brand does just that with an assortment of all-in-one kits cutely packaged for various purposes.

Four OW! kits are available for GBP 5.99 each through Boots stores across the UK as well as online. The Home Sweet Home kit, for example, includes forehead thermometer, washproof plasters, wound pad and bandage, antiseptic wipes, safety pins, burns dressing and finger bandage, all in a cheerful silver and orange container.

The silver and purple Cheeky Monkeys kit, on the other hand, adds children’s plasters, cooling gel sheet and star stickers “for being brave!”.

Also available are kits for travel and sports. All four are “robust, recyclable and reusable”—as the site puts it—and “a far cry from one of those big old dusty kits you never use, which lurks at the back of your kitchen cupboard.”

Take a tired old product, add some modern convenience and stylish packaging, and you too could end up in a chain of 850 stores nationwide!
