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.

Extreme Sandbox


Jeni Christopher really digs heavy machinery.

How much? Christopher, a St. Paul mother of two young children, passed up a last-minute pedicure and manicure invite from a friend to instead run a 19-ton, 115-horsepower excavator on a recent rainy Saturday afternoon – all for “fun and the experience.”

“Maybe that’s the tomboy in me,” she said.

Christopher was among the first customers of Extreme Sandbox, a new business in Hastings that gives people the chance to pay to “play” with an excavator, skid steer loader or bulldozer.

The company, which opened April 7, bills itself as being the first of its kind in the Midwest.

Its marketing motto?

“Let the kid in you play!”
