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.

When the construction boom in Ireland went bust, two Irish carpenters, Ronan Diggin and Noel O’sullivan found themselves without a job. Lucky for them, even in Ireland, nothing is s certain as death and taxes.

So, they’ve started building caskets.

Ronan and Noel asked around and was keen to get someone to help him start and show him the ropes. He wanted to gain as much information about a coffin, or “the boat with two sterns” as one wily punter put it to me recently. That’s when they met the O’connors of Firies.

“They are undertakers that make coffins for their own business only and they showed us what we needed to know. They’re very genuine people,” he said.

Thereafter, Arca Coffin-Makers was born and the shed adjacent to Ronan’s home became the ‘Arca workshop’. Noel informed me that all their raw materials are locally sourced.
