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:
Kevin Farrell works hard for a living—fighting the horrific traffic in the maze of Los Angeles freeways five days a week. His car is packed to the max with the products he peddles to home-based customers, some as far away as San Diego.
Once he arrives at a customer’s home he sets up his wares, then excuses himself to freshen up, bringing with him a large cosmetic case and wig box.
After an hour of primping, Miss Dee W. Ieye emerges from the powder room. She is America’s No. 1 Tupperware Lady, ready to pitch the iconic plastic food storage containers to the 20 or so women sitting in a suburban living room. Dee is good at what she does because she really, truly believes Tupperware is the best thing since sliced bread.
With big, long blond hair and over-the top eye makeup, she stirs the crowd into a laughing frenzy with raunchy jokes, dropping the F-bomb once in awhile. She wears hot pants, high heels and a bosom-hugging gingham shirt that shows off a figure that rivals Dolly Parton’s.
“Dee/Kevin’s routine is the perfect mix of kitch and classic—just like Tupperware,” said Jill Brietzman of Thousand Oaks, a fan who served up Dee at a Tupperware bridal shower. “He—I mean Dee—has a magical personality … off-kilter, fun and crazy. … Such a blast.”
