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.

Of the thousands of firms that supply goods to the government, most are not manufacturers, but middlemen. Most are tiny one or two person businesses like Nicole Corey in New York City.

NY Times City Room:

Here, amid her homemade pickles and jams, Nicole Corey keeps New York City agencies and those of its neighbors supplied with flock-lined latex gloves, safety vests, watches and disposable smocks.

Inmates need new open-toe socks? Done. Just $3.65 a dozen.

Bras for that hard-to-fit female prisoner? One custom-made 34J coming right up — $30, please.

All these items, and hundreds more, have been secured for city and state agencies by Ms. Corey, a scrappy 64-year-old who is a jack-of-all-trades of government procurement.
