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.

Do you think your business is your destiny? For Joy Thorpe, Bowie Florist was destined to belong to her, reports Bowie Patch.

Bowie Florist was established in 1966. In the mid-1970s, Thorpe, now 55, began working at the shop when she was 18, staying several years and working for the first owner. Her father offered to buy the shop for her, but she said no.

“I was young. I wanted to do other things,” she said.

Thorpe went on to work for several other florists, along the way developing a sharp eye for color and nimble fingers to easily shape floral arrangements. She came back to work for the shop’s second owner, staying seven years. She again left to do other things. In 1999, when Thorpe heard the shop was for sale, she bought it.

“I just felt it was my time,” she said.
