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.


Who doesn’t remember the ice cream man? It seems no matter what you were doing when the ice cream truck went by, you ran to go get money.

A local mother got nostalgic. She and her daughter thought it would be a refreshing memory back to the suburbs.

The familiar sounds of the ice cream truck can make you run out of a lake or stop playing.

“Cherry-banana split,” said one little customer.

At a time when folks are losing jobs and tightening spending, 12-year-old Allie Saathoff and her mother Lisa Saathoff are taking a gamble on the Pink Cow Ice Cream truck.

“Cows kind of went with ice cream and pink is my favorite color,” said Allie.

“I was just at a point where I was ready for a new challenge and we started researching. Who wouldn’t want to have an ice cream truck?” said mom, Lisa.

They’ve only been in business since Memorial Day weekend, but things seem to be going well.

“People love that we have a friendly-family option. We have a smiling 12-year-old selling ice cream and I think that’s what makes us a little different,” said Lisa.
