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.

ABC7 reports that the Home Smart Card is a reloadable gift card used to pay for cab rides.

The card is sold for $25 and allows you to add additional amounts. It is accepted by most cab companies that accept major credit cards.

Inventor Rosette Marturana designed the card because she worried about her 21 year old son drinking and driving. She says giving taxi gift cards to young adults provides a way for them to get home safely.

Editor note: What’s cool about this idea is that Rosette made a product out of two other things. Taxi rides have always been around, but she made it easy to use by combining it with a ‘gift’ card.
