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.

Cornell Irons has spent 29 years in the U.S. Army but now he is taking on a new challenge: entrepreneurship. Officially retiring in December, he has created a new life for himself as a Charley’s Grilled Subs entrepreneur reports RGJ.com.

“Even before I went into the military, I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur,” said Irons, 48. “The opportunity just didn’t present itself.”

But now, he said, opening a franchise has come as a natural next step following his military service.

Irons, a Syracuse, N.Y., native, first became acquainted with Charley’s Grilled Subs, which has more than 400 locations worldwide, through his travels with the Army.

“Charley’s deals a lot with military,” he said. “They have many locations at airports and army bases, so through my travels I was able to get Charley’s during some of my assignments.”

As a customer, Irons liked the food — one of his top reasons, he said, for selecting the restaurant for his franchising venture.

“I’m a firm believer that if you’re going to get into business, you have to believe in the product,” he said.
