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.

Laurie Coffroth looked at the sorry state of funding for public education and saw a business opportunity. The Elk Grove mother of three recently launched Cash for Classrooms, which charges local businesses to have their coupons inserted into students’ backpacks. Cash for Classrooms will funnel part of the proceeds back to schools.

With California’s schools losing $18 billion in state and federal funding over the last four years, it’s falling on parents, teachers, students and administrators to raise the money needed to keep classrooms supplied with basics and programs like music and art part of the school day. Even some schools that are traditionally prolific fundraisers, however, are finding it more difficult to attract donations than in previous years. And like Coffroth, they’re trying all kinds of creative tactics to catch up.
