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.

Gulf Coast Business Review:

When Jason Fry won the Florida Lottery in late 2007, he did exactly what you’d expect a lotto winner to do: He started spending it.

He bought a new Cadillac Escalade and a few weeks later ferried his buddies in a limousine bus to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, where he had purchased a section of tickets on the 50-yard line to watch the University of Florida play the University of Michigan in football.

Fry, who played professional football for a short time in Canada, even spent some of the money on golf lessons with the hopes of hitting the professional circuit. “I spent four to six months hanging out and relaxing,” he says.

But Fry, 39, quickly tired of the easy life. He laughs that he couldn’t persuade any of his working friends to hang out at the beach on Mondays, so he acquired a BatteriesPlus store and the franchise rights to three more.
