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.

Business Insider:

Justin Kan already has quite the track record.

His second [business], Justin.tv, has turned into a runaway success since rebranding to Twitch.tv. Its traffic has doubled in the past six months. It now has more than 16 million unique visitors every month.

Now he’s leaving that startup to work on a completely new company called Exec.

BI: So what is Exec?

JK: We’re launching an app that lets you outsource any job or errand in real-time. All you have to do is load up the app and type up a short description of what you want. We find someone within 10 minutes to do your job for $25 an hour. It’s pretty simple.

Most importantly, though, it’s not an open marketplace. All the people who are providers are people we’ve interviewed and hired through a few rounds of interviews. It’s just starting in San Francisco, but we’re gonna build out the supply for every place we go. It’s open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

For workers — we call them execs — it’s on demand. They’re eligible for jobs as soon as they log into the mobile app. If they want to work only on Monday and Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., they can just log on during those times.
