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.

Rockford Register Star:

When Joelene Chinn finishes one of her creations, it’s a bit like Rockford’s infamous Sock Monkey — gone punk.

The 33-year-old mother is the mastermind behind the rockin’ sock dolls popping up throughout the Rock River Valley. It’s only been a few months since she launched her business, Socks That Rock, but already Chinn has made some 500 sock dolls.

“Everywhere I go, I get in a conversation about them,” she said. “They’re so unique and it relates: Rock ’n’ roll is so ‘in.’ This is the right time.”

Decked out with piercings, tattoos and mohawks, each of Chinn’s sock dolls are originals.

“Every single one is one-of-a-kind,” Chinn said. “Even if I have two socks that are the same, they don’t sew the same.”
