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.

Sometimes it pays to freak out. An Ohio boy’s over-the-top reaction after receiving a Wii game system for Christmas three years ago has turned into a tidy little side business says the Hamilton Journal News.

Since the boy’s father posted the reaction video on YouTube three years ago, he’s made almost $5000 in royalties.

The video shows 12-year-old Matt King run through the gambit of reactions—laughing, crying, vomiting—after receiving a Wii from his parents. The Journal News says King’s father warned him that there was no turning back once the video had been posted. Turned out to be quite a good gamble.
