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:
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.
