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.

What Ripa’s show — in which regular folks presented their inventions to a panel of experts and competed for a pitch spot on HSN — gave to McCombs was not a million dollars, but one-time access to the HSN audience. When she appeared on HSN on Dec. 27, 2010, the nation saw McCombs, a self-described “New City mom,” showing how her melamine plates come with interchangeable rings that can be swapped for different occasions.

“A year of ups and downs” later, McCombs is still explaining and still working to expand the Switch-a-Dish brand.

“It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience of filming a TV show in my house,” she says. “It was the most stressful thing I probably ever did. It was worse than giving birth to twins! But the good spin is that it was a fascinating journey, to have my idea validated by experts in this business.”
