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.

Bismarck Tribune:

Larry Mosbrucker fell from a semi and broke both his heels in 2004. After his accident, working in agriculture became much harder and he wanted to make things safer and easier for others in the industry.

Mosbrucker invented StopSensor as part of the North Dakota Department of Commerce’s InnovateND competition. StopSensor uses a laser and reflectors to help farmers line up grain trailers for loading and unloading.

When farmers are positioning a trailer over a grain hopper for unloading or under an auger for loading, they have to jump in and out of the truck cab to line it up. Mosbrucker said many people have to get in and out at least three times. Four or five times is more likely.

“Working 18-hour days at harvest time, it gets old really quick,” Mosbrucker said.
