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.

Dog Books

The Wenatchee World:

It was in 1986 when Charlene Woodward saw the need for a retailer in Seattle that catered to customers looking for unusual books. The budding entrepreneur founded Direct Book Service.

Little did Woodward know then that her new business would eventually go to the dogs.

Woodward soon discovered it was very difficult to find high-quality books for clients looking for specific information about dogs. Seeing a potential niche market, she decided to start selling dog books at dog shows across the region.

It didn’t take long for customers to begin asking how they could buy dog books between scheduled dog shows, so Woodward designed a simple catalog and orders soon started rolling in. The business gradually began a new chapter as a mail order company, and changed its name to Dogwise. Charlene’s husband, Larry, joined the growing company and serves as its president.
