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.

Super Bowl XLV is providing some small businesses the opportunity of a lifetime thanks to the NFL’s Emerging Business Program reports the Dallas Business Journal.

And while those businesses say obtaining Super Bowl-related work has been fair and straightforward, some businesses from Super Bowls past say the program is oversold and hard to navigate.

Bob Lilly Professional Promotions, Gifted by Dezyn and Regali Inc. are three businesses that already have secured work.

Bob Lilly Professional Promotions will provide uniforms for volunteers. Gifted by Dezyn will handle promotional activities for the 12th Annual Super Bowl Gospel Celebration, and has secured a temporary license to produce Super Bowl logo leather goods. Regali Inc. is contracted to provide marketing database technology and also has received a temporary license to produce custom merchandise.

Neither Debra Mars, founder of Gifted by Dezyn, nor Renee Dutia, owner of Regali, could calculate what their contracts ultimately will amount to, but Bob Lilly Jr., co-owner of Bob Lilly Professional Promotions with his wife, Julie Lilly, said their contract is for $250,000.

“That is a good piece of business for us,” Lilly said. “That’s a couple percentage points of our annual business.”
