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.


Shirley Broback, 34, was awarded the SavvyMom Mom Entrepreneur of the Year Award for her work as producer of the Vancouver Island Baby Fair and says her win proves that self-described regular women like her can make a big difference with big dreams and big effort.

“It shows you don’t have to be a big shot, just a regular person with some big plans and the confidence to put your plans into action,” Broback said.

Broback beat out 316 other nominees across the country to win the distinction of being named Canada’s top mom-entrepreneur along with $15,500 in cash and business services. She’s overjoyed to win but credits her clients and friends for helping to make her nomination possible.

“It’s such an honour to win the award. I had so many friends and family and exhibitors rallying for me. The prizes are incredible and the exposure is just phenomenal. I think it can be inspiring to other mom entrepreneurs,” Broback said.
