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.


Lollipops to cure hiccups sounds like a remarkable idea. Although you may think that such a novel invention was perpetrated by two dozen highly-educated, well-compensated scientists inside an elaborate think tank somewhere in the Midwest, you’d be wrong. This particular creation was crafted by 13 year-old Manchester, Connecticut girl Mallory Kievman. With the assistance of a few MBA’s, she may even bring this delicious relief to a retail shelf near you in the not-too-distant future.

The secret to Kievman’s success: apple cider vinegar and extra sugar, a recipe she concocted in the family kitchen. Once the lollipop hits the market, it will fall into the group known as “nutraceuticals”, which, essentially, is a consumable foodstuff that produces healthy benefits. The upside of these products is that they usually generate little to no side-effects, a sharp contrast to the concerns traditional pharmaceuticals can cause.

“It’s a terrific story,” astroenterologist Dr. Robynne Chutkan explained to WTOP. “I think she tried over a hundred different remedies and researched this for two years … that is some really terrific research and development.”
