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.

As soon as Paul DeWys turned 15 years old, he went out and got a work permit. That was only the first step he needed to take to realize his life long dream in manufacturing. Now, at 22 years old, he is the owner of his own business: DeWys Industrial Design.

Paul got his start before he even managed to finish college. Having graduated in May, his business is now in full swing. According to Mlive.com, he would like to open up a manufacturing plant too.

That entrepreneurial spirit started as he watched his father build a sheet metal fabrication business, DeWys Manufacturing, in his barn in Marne.

“Ever since I was old enough to contemplate what I wanted to do with my life, it involved what my father did — entrepreneurship,” DeWys said.

It has been a busy road to get to the point of obtaining contracts for his DeWys Industrial Design, where he develops products from military equipment to bear-proof food containers.

After graduating, he sought accounts for his business through cold calls. Working as much as 70 hours a week from home in Ravenna Township, he then decided to set up an office at 7407 State Road in Coopersville.

The company is busy enough to occasionally use interns who learn Catia at Coopersville High School.

“I see the world ripe with opportunity,” he said.
