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.


GTX Corp. is introducing new shoes, loafers, and sneakers, with GPS built into them. Using a downloadable app, caretakers can track and be alerted if patients and loved ones wanders out of a pre-set safe zone.

The GPS Smart Shoe will provide millions of caregivers the means to help easily find those afflicted with Alzheimer’s that wander and become lost. Currently impacting 5.3 million victims, with predictions of 14 million US victims by the year 2050, Alzheimer’s disease is fast becoming “one of the biggest public health dilemmas ever encountered. The simplicity behind the GPS Shoe is that when a senior with Alzheimer’s wanders off more than a pre-set distance, their caregiver will immediately receive a geo-fence alert on their smartphone and computer, with a direct link to a Google map plotting the wanderer’s location.
