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.

Last Thursday, we first told you about 7-year-old entrepreneur Julie Murphy and how county health inspectors shut down her lemonade stand.

After their public image soured, elected officials apologized for shutting down Julie’s lemonade stand because she didn’t possess the proper permit.

According to The Oregonian, a local radio station and tire store set her up in business for an afternoon.

Now, she has $1,838.31 — enough to bankroll a trip to Disneyland for her mother and her later this month.

And if she wants it, there seems to be a lucrative career waiting for Julie in the lemonade business. A minor league baseball team has approached the seven-year-old about setting up shop at their games.
