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.

Remain eco Designs


Krystal O’Mara can see the art and the utilitarian in the wheel of a bicycle.

Her new business, called ReMain EcoDesign, was featured in the August issue of Entrepreneur magazine because of its unique niche in the home furnishings marketplace.

She uses rims, spokes, hubs — essentially the entire bicycle — to make hourglass coffee tables, imaginative lighting fixtures and chairs without backs.

“Not much goes to waste,” she said.

Her products range widely in price. A simple light fixture sells for $15, but custom, large-scale lighting equipment is priced at $1,500. “The tables generally range from about $175 to $450,” she said.
