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.

When her marriage ended Alicia Kavon decided to go to school and finish her bachelors degree. With a major in dance and a minor in fine arts, she fully intended to become a dance instructor when she graduated. However, with a little nudging from her friend, she became a Pilates instructor instead, reports The Commercial Appeal.

Now in her fifth year as a successful business owner of Pilates Central on York Avenue, she feels she can breathe more easily. Business is steady and her job allows her the flexibility to be a mom first.

Kavon and daughter, Sophia, 13, spend free time riding bikes through their Cooper-Young neighborhood, reading and looking for books at Burke’s Bookstore, taking their dog to the park, baking cakes from a Julia Child cookbook and cooking meals together. The mother-daughter team, who opt not to own a TV, are planning a trip to Paris for the late spring or summer. They look forward to visiting the art museums, exploring the city on foot and stopping by the boutiques on the Champs-Elysees to window shop.
