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.

This Is Essex:

Ray Higgs, of Dunmow, dreamt up the A-OK care monitor in 2006, after his late father, Ron, 84, suffered a minor stroke.

The device allows family members to keep a “discreet eye” on lonely individuals in their homes without any cameras.

“My dad pleaded with us not to take him to a home, but I could not leave him alone, I had to do something,” said Ray, 56.

The monitor works with sensors that send a text to a family member when there has been no movement detected in the home.

A text is sent when the person has not moved in the morning, afternoon, or any time programmed into the device, when they are supposed to be up and about.
